It's time to join Patrice on the porch for a chat! She poses questions. We then link up to answer and discuss them. Here are this weeks questions and my answers.
1. Tell me a fond memory of an elderly person?
Before I was married, I worked in a Catholic retirement home. I became very attached to a 96 year old woman named, Lily. Lily suffered from severe dementia, but she and I developed a bond. She was feisty, outspoken and cute as a button! I adored her; she recognized me and would acknowledge it. When Bill and I became serious (after four years of friendship), I wanted him to meet Lily. We went to visit her. After chatting for a couple of minutes, she whispered, rather loudly, "Who's he? He's cute!" . We all burst into laughter, as I introduced them and explained who Bill was.
2. What's your favorite flavor of jam or jelly?
I love strawberry or peach anything!
3. What goes through your mind when you drive by one of those whopping, huge houses that look like something in a magazine?
"What a whopping, huge waste of money and space!" Many years ago, we bought a home across from a lake. It is an older, unincorporated area, once used for seasonal lake recreation, as well as small town USA. After a few years, our lovely view of the cedar trees, willow trees, wildlife and lake became suddenly obstructed! Yes, now we have whopping, huge houses there. *sigh*
4. What's your favorite way to relax?
A trip up to the Northwoods always enables me to relax. If I can't do that, peace & quiet, a comfy blanket, a cat, good book and my easy chair will have to do. (A cup of tea, coffee or cocoa will make helps, too.)
5. What's your favorite kind of pasta?
I love Fettuccine with Alfredo sauce, broccoli, & shrimp!
As always, thank you Patrice. You & Wendell are wonderful. I love these visits! Hugs!
