1. What summer activity most takes you back to your own childhood?
The cookouts. Our family loved to cook-out or picnic and those make me vividly recall my childhood.
2. What’s your favorite summer smell?
The salty beaches. I could stand by the sea shore all day just smelling the ocean salt!
3. It’s beach season in the US of A…so how do you feel about sand?
Love it, but not under my bathing suit! I love to walk beaches along the shore on warm, wet sand.
4. Sun tea, SunChips, sunflower seeds, Capri Sun, Sunny Delight, Sun-Maid raisins, sun-dried tomatoes…your favorite food or beverage with sun in its name?
Sunflower Seeds I guess, although there are uses for sun-dried tomatoes.
5. What’s your favorite way to cool off on a hot summer day?
A dip in the ocean. This is really funny because I live across the street from a lake. Somehow lakes just don’t do it for me.
6. Share a favorite song with the word sun or sunshine in it’s title.
Here Comes the Sun. First by the Beatles, but I found this clip done by George Harrison at a Charity (I think it was the Concert For The Prince’s Trust in England) show. So many famous, familiar faces. I loved George. He was the mostly quiet, Beatle, who wrote tender love songs.
7. Tell us about a time you had an exceedingly good or truly awful customer service experience. If it was awful, did you report it? Ever go back there again?
Back in 1989 I lived in West Berlin. I have to say almost all my experiences were good ones, but one day after a French Press coffee pot broke (It was glass and just snapped shattering and scalding me) I took all the pieces back and I wanted a new one. The Clerk said too bad. No returns. I stood for a moment, open mouthed, then I said quite loudly, “I want to see your superior!”. Well that did it. The clerk became very nice and in no time I had a new pot!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Oh wow, the big news is that Lili is doing very well in school! She is listening to my words and following my directions. I am so happy I remembered the name of Fritz’s teacher. She is a remarkable woman who really knows how to train dogs!
