Now to answer my 10 questions:

1. What is your favorite song? I’m so eclectic with my music. I love old Hymns , rock and roll, classical, country western, anything uplifting. No heavy metal. Can’t say I have a favorite. It’s like asking if I have a favorite child.

2. What is your favorite dessert?  Ice cream! Any kind or a bowl of three different kinds.

3. What ticks you off? People who gush about how much they love you then turn around and stick it to you.

4. What do you do when you’re upset?  Complain and cry to my husband or kids, then instantly get over it.

5. Which is/was your favorite pet? Growing up on a farm and having raised three kids, there have been many and I can’t say one was the favorite. But…Betsy loved Pepper, our black cocker spaniel the best!

6. Which do you prefer, black or white? In clothes, black because it’s slimming and white washes me out.

7.What is your biggest fear?  Anything untoward happening to my family.

8. What is your attitude mostly? Happy and fun-loving.

9.What is perfection? God.

10. What is your guilty pleasure? Ice Cream and shoes.
