3. Tell me about a recurring dream that haunts you.

Being trapped in a car.

4. Have you ever missed a flight? What were the circumstances?

Since I pass ride, I can safely answer this question with a yes. Pass riders only fly if there is an open seat. Trust me, I have watched many planes take off and fly away with me still in the terminal!

5. What do you consider your best feature?

It used to be my eyes. But not any more. Now I would say it’s my ability to be a good friend. With age comes wisdom.

6. What was the last concert you went to?

I have a real fear of crowds. So I don’t go very often. I think the last concert I went to was at a church in Germany, Kloster Chorin. Volker and Uschi took me.

7. Describe the most embarrassing church moment you ever experienced.

My brother fell asleep during midnight mass and slipped down and under the pew in front of us!

8. Are you a whistler, hummer or singer?


9. George Washington Carver said, “I love to think of nature as an unlimited broadcasting station, through which God speaks to us every hour, if we will only tune in.” What is God saying to you through nature today, or this very minute?

Make sure you have good air conditioning. It is pretty darn hot here already today!

10. On September, 1, 1752, the Liberty Bell arrived in Philadelphia. What memorable event will take place in your life on September 1, 2010?

Goodness, I go to Weight Watchers!

11. Taco Bell or the Liberty Bell? (You must choose.)

The Liberty Bell.

12. Do you believe men and women can have purely platonic friendships?

Absolutely. You know, a man with honor will treat a woman with true respect. I have many male friends and they are real gentlemen. I am treated like a sister and they do not hit on me for a date or more. If a man comes on to a married woman, then he is no gentleman at all.

  1. *ahem* … ummmmm… Maribeth… WHEN did snakes and rodents become INSECTS??? Is this along the same lines as Pluto no longer being a PLANET? Did I MISS something??? I don’t always pay attention you know…

    Your garden IS green – and lush and beautiful … and abundant! It makes ME green!

    Pass ride? Is that like stand-by? I’ve done that a time or two… but I try not to make a habit of it!

  2. Wow-your garden looks pretty amazing!
    We have ‘issues’ with wildlife here so not a lot of success in gardening other than containers and even then we have to take care. A ginormous bear took out our bird feeder and it only contained thistle…I do not think he was pleased.
