1. What do/did you call your grandparents? If it's something unusual tell us the story behind the name. If you're a grandparent what do your grands call you? Who chose your moniker?
I called my paternal grandparents Ma and Granddaddy. My maternal grandparents were MaEunice (later changed to Grandma) and Granddaddy. When I was younger I couldn’t talk due to a condition I had so one of the few sounds I could make was Ma. I called my maternal grandma Ma + her first name (Eunice) until I realized all my cousins just called her Grandma; then I switched.
2. Ever taken a road trip along the California Coast? If so what was the highlight of your trek? If not, any desire to do so? If you were to take a trip along the California Coast what's one attraction you'd have on your must-see list?
I have never been to California. The one place I have always wanted to visit in California is Alcatraz in San Francisco.
3. What are three things you don't know how to do?
Dance, make a coconut pie, and draw.
4. Tom Peters is quoted as saying, 'Celebrate what you want to see more of.' If that's true what will you celebrate and more importantly, how will you celebrate?
Unity. Not sure how I would celebrate this. I feel like our nation is broken and may not ever feel unity again.
5. Thursday (February 16) is National Almond Day. Do you like almonds? Which would you prefer-an Almond Joy or a macaron? What's something you make that calls for almonds?
I sometimes eat roasted almonds as a snack. That and almond milk are the extent of my almond liking.
6. What does Saturday morning look like at your house?
Wake up a little before 6 am and take my daughter to dialysis. Come home and watch TV or read until it is time to go pick her up. Then sometimes I do grocery shopping or sometimes we just stay home and relax or work around the house.
7. Share with us a favorite book you've read this winter.
Vanished by T.K. Leigh is probably my favorite that I have read so far this winter.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I am ready for warm weather to come around and stay. I think my perfect climate is a minimum of 70*F year round. Here lately we have a couple of 70* days and then a few 30* days and then a couple more 70* days; it’s gotten old rather quickly.
