Do you like to see it snowing outside?
If I saw it snowing outside, it would be a miracle. We've lived
here almost 43 years and it has snowed, briefly, twice.
Do you tell your family you love them enough?
We are all pretty good about telling each other we love each other, but
especially after Paul and David died. We end almost every conversation

Do you like getting jewelry or do you not wear any?
The only jewelry I wear is a necklace and earrings from my
granddaughters. I never take them off.
Do you watch a lot of NFL football?
No. It's not that I don't enjoy it, I just never turn it on
myself. If Walt is watching, or if we are at Tom's house, I enjoy the
camaraderie of watching together, but football ain't my thang.
Have you ever used the word ‘lame’?
Probably. Mostly to describe a limping animal, though.
Are you/Were you in a band? If so, what was your band

at my school at night. The nuns were there watching and never said a
Have you ever been in a choir?
I sang choruses on public for years. first in high school and then in
various church choirs. Haven't sung in years, though. I don't
have a singing voice any more.
Do you like the color of your eyes? If not, what color
would you want them?
I am happy with my hazel eyes, which Walt has always called "green with

Probably in grammar school. My Girl Scout troop took lessons and
we used to go skating at the huge skating rink at
Sutro Baths in San Francisco, which was torn down in 1966.
Do you like to brush your teeth?
Sure. I'm so lazy, I have a Sonicare brush that does all the work
for me. All I have to do is hold it in place.
Have you ever had a surgery?
Only tonsils, when I was 4-1/2

Apparently younger. When I tell people I'm nearly 73, they don't

As my father told me, continuously, all of my life, "I'm too sensitive."
