This is pretty simple, but it can be lots of fun. The idea is to post a general question, then someone answers it and posts another and so on. The questions can be anything from trivial to serious to obscure. Will you play with me?



If you could only eat 3 foods, what would they be?

Only three?

Probably ice cream, ripe peaches in season, and hot tea.


If you could have dinner with any three people, living or dead, whom would you choose?

Oprah, Jackie Kennedy, and my mom


What’s the best book you’ve read so far this year? Ever?

I'm a late comer, but I recently read and enjoyed the Outlander series of books just in time for the television series.


Which modern convenience would you find most difficult to do without?

I love so many places, but I'll pick the mid coast area of Maine.

What is one of your favorite childhood memories that involves the sense of taste?

On the first day of school my parents would take us to "Shady Glen" (It was in Connecticut, not sure where) for blueberry sundaes made with homemade blueberry ice cream. They also had cheese burgers with crispy cheese on them. (My grandmother kept trying to figure out how they made the cheese crispy.)

What is your favorite holiday?

I'll have to go with the classic...Christmas. It involves food, decorating, time with family, and traditions. Oh, and Jesus!

What year was your least favorite birthday?

It really wasn't the birthday but the lead up to it. My gynecologist told me that any births after 35 would be a "high risk pregnancy", my dentist told me to start worrying about gum disease and my optometrist told me that they would be checking to see if I was developing "older eye" conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, etc. I felt like 35 was the time for my body to officially start falling apart.

What period in history (besides today) would you like to be living?

If you remain at any age for the rest of your life, which age would you choose?

When I die, I hope there is continued life after death in another dimension but I have a little trouble believing that I have contact with the afterlife while I'm still very much alive. Who's knows? It's all about personal beliefs.

How big a part of your life does SEX still play as a person of retirement age. I'm 54 and still usually enjoy relations with my wife every weekend. Hoping that many that are older on here still are enjoying it so I have something to look forward to in the years to come. If question makes you uncomfortable, I apologize in advance

Hard to have sex when you're worrying about healing ankle.

Um, moving on...who was your favorite teacher in school and why?

My third grade teacher, Mrs. W. She played the autoharp, loved art, and taught us how to write in cursive! We were in an old school on the third floor... had the old wooden one piece desks. I can still smell the school chalkboards! I remember we had reading groups and I was in a group that read a 4th grade textbook!
Mrs. W. also was my mother's neighbor a few years later and they became best friends.

Next question: What was your favorite vacation as a child?

My favorite vacations as a child were when we would go camping. I loved the smell of pines, the sound of the creek, singing around the campfire, sleeping in a tent. That feeling and love of the mountains has stayed with me throughout my life.

To answer the above question from Fas that didn't get answered. I am 62 and enjoy it more now. No encroaching worries about job and what I need to do, kids hearing, or concerns about body image. Also DH takes more time because we have more time. So... I think it gets better.

Question: How and where did you meet your spouse or significant other?

I met my first husband in college. We were both townies. It was Spring Break, everyone was gone, and he was at a party going through through the phone book trying to find some girls to come to the party. Someone remembered that I lived in town. He called me and that was the beginning of our 32 year relationship.
I met my second husband 30 years ago when we were both finalists for the same teaching job. I scored the job! Then the next year they transferred me to another school so they could bring him in as head teacher. Touche! Years later we ended up team teaching. We became good friends and had lots of laughs. After we both got divorced we started hanging out, then dating. It felt extremely comfortable. We've been married 7 years now and it's all good!

*What is your favorite poem?

Favorite poem

I like the poem "The Road Less Taken" by Robert Frost. It was most likely the only one I understood in English class. It speaks to me still.

Also love the book Hailstones and Halibut Bones which is a poetry books about colors. Although, I didn't like poetry when we "studied" it in school, I loved using poetry with my to my first graders to enhance their reading skills.

Question: What subject in school did you like least?

Least Favorite Subject

My least favorite subject in school was Math. I was reintroduced to Math as an adult as an LD tutor. I had to help my students get through it. I quickly discovered a knack and a love for it. I taught all the math co-teaching classes at the high school where I taught and now teach math to adults. I guess my brain wasn't ready the first time. Makes me question the strategies of pushing students into higher level subjects sooner.


What superpower would you like to have and why?

I don't know which is the worst problem. I do know that our country has some big issues that need to be addressed. I guess I would have to say developing more resources for the mentally ill and their families is something that I think about quite a bit.

Thank you all for playing!
