These questions were posed to me by my good friend Joanne at

Feel free to answer any or all of them  or choose them for your blog.


My answers.

1.  I would love to be able to sing.  I can’t sing, period!

2.  Snowed on the night we were married and since we were broke anyway, we stayed in the apartment we had just rented.

3.  Nah, not for a year.  For the winter months I would choose somewhere warm.

4.  Definitely not Cinderella!

5.  I love mushrooms on pizza, but they are no good unless accompanied by sausage and lots of cheese.

6.  I love to answer this question!!  Jim was so handsome and I was enchanted.

7.  I look terrible in red.

8.  I have met several of my fellow bloggers.  I would love to meet my friends from England and of course Boston Boy and my Twin.

9.  Hard question.  I think it would have to be picking myself up and moving forward after the death of my husband.

10. My favorite movie of all time has to be Little Women.  I have every version made of it on DVD.  My favorite version is the one starring Judy Garland and Peter Lawford and  a very young Elizabeth Taylor.

11.  I love music!!  Classic country is my favorite.  If I had to choose a song right now it would One of These Days by Emmylou Harris or George Jones. 


Those are my answers.  Please answer one of the questions for me in a comment.

27 days left on the countdown to Spring. Enjoy the day.  Stay safe and be happy!!


  1. Looks like fun to do, but don't have time at this point to do reading your answers, though...Oh, all right, I'll answer #3. I'd like to live in Wales for a year. I saw a film about it last year and am dying to go there---I feel drawn to the place, probably because I am part Welsh.

  2. Fun learning more about you, Beth. :)
    I think I would like to be able to draw and paint. They kind of go hand in hand. I'm a novice at both and it is very frustrating when your skill level needs such vast improvement. What you can see in your head...well, it stays in your head--LOL! ;)

  3. Awesome answers Beth! It was cool to learn more about it's time to sit and relax with a cup of coffee or like we say here in New York "Cuppa Cawffee" ;o)
    Blessings, Joanne

    1. Make mine tea and I will be right there.

  4. I've always wished I could speak foreign languages fluently but if I had to choose just one it would be to master my wife's native dialect. It's cold and blustery surprise there...winter seldom likes to leave easily and though it's been mild...I don't intend to let my guard down until we're into May.

  5. I'll answer #1. I would love (just like Joe) to speak at least 4 languages fluently. Not the broken bits and pieces I have now.

    I would love to meet some of my fellow bloggers too. And the ones I would love to meet are the same as yours. My Twin and Boston Boy AND Joe. He's my brother. :-)))

  6. Aw Beth I am flattered! Thank you.
    1.Paint and draw like my father.
    4.I can't think of a fairy tale character so I'll go mythical, Thor God of Thunder.
    5.Pepperoni and green peppers.
    6.For me it depends on the person
    7.Red, then yellow.
    8.That's easy here on blogger because I really only have 3 faithfull friends carried over from Spaces, Beth, Nancy and Carole. By the way thanks Carole.
    9.It was courageous and stupid at the same time. It was getting dark and I was fishing. As I walked up a hill towards my car I saw someone sitting in the drivers seat. I ran out of the woods like a wild man, pulled opened the door and screamed "What the "bleep" are you doing in my car!!!" It wasn't my car. It was the same model but it was red. It was also dark. I should have paid his laundry bill if you know what I mean.
    10.Tough one. I'll go with "The Life of Brian".
    11."In My Life" by The Beatles. John Lennon really. A beautiful melody and touching lyrics. The man could really write.
    Thanks again Beth!
    Well I should have saved this for a blog.

    1. Thanks Paul! The friends I have left from WLS can be counted on 1 hand now.
