Questions Answered

Had to participate in this meme challenge from LL Cool Joe via Grannie Annie

1.What was your favorite food when you were a child?
Peanut butter sandwiches

 2.What sound do you love?
The cry of a newborn and the sound of a brook running over rocks.

3.If you could throw any kind of party, what would it be like and what would it be for?
A family Christmas party
.

4. If you had to change your first name, what would you change it to? and Why?
I always wished I had a different name when I was young but I've grown to love it because of the person I was named after (Millicent).  I think I would have changed it to Dianne though - always my favorite name.


5. If you could meet anyone, living or dead, who would you meet?
My grandfather, who died when my father was 10.  I think I'd really like him.

6. What songs are included on the soundtrack to your life?
I will Wait For You - Petula Clark

On The Road Again - because we've gone on so many road trips
Alberta Bound - moving to Alberta back in 1968 changed my life
Having My Baby - because of my seven
But my favorite song of all time is Unchained Melody by the Righteous Bros.

7. What was the last movie, TV show or book that made you cry or tear up?
Just about all of them at some point - I tear up at the drop of a hat.

8. What do you miss most about being a kid?
Having cats.


9. The best part of waking up is?
Waking up!

10. What story does your family always tell about you?
That would be the time when I was four or five and Mum gave me beets for lunch.  I decided I didn't like them and refused to swallow the one bite she made me take.  When I woke up from my afternoon nap I still had the beet in my mouth.  I guess I was stubborn! 


Well that was easy.  Anyone else want to answer the questions?

Okay. I'm in.

1. It was an old pioneer dish from Norway that I hate to say the name of because people will think I'm nuts.

2. The sound of a train from far far away. Or close. No matter.

3. Party? What's that? Something I should know about???

4. I'd change it in a minute to something that couldn't have been made fun of for my entire life. Anything simple.

5. Abraham Lincoln. Or my grandfather I never knew.

6. That's just too hard of a question.

7. Ummmmm...... I saw Lincoln but that wasn't a tear job. I don't know.

8. Staying a kid. It was more fun than being an adult.

9. Hearing that train in downtown Mesa about 4 in the morning.

10. Well there is one, but it's kind of like question number one. I can't say the word on a public blog that I'd have to say to tell it.
