The Letter F

The Letter K
Who do you want to kill?
Er... what a question!  No one.

Do you want kids?
Just the three I have been blessed to receive!

Where did you go for kindergarten?
Same place I went to elementary school.

The Letter L
Are you laid back?
Some would laugh at this, but I am now.  I didn't used to be.

Yep, white lies, maybe, to not hurt someone's feelings... otherwise no way.

Can't chose just one, you all know that about me!  lol

Do you still watch Disney movies?

Do you like mangos?
I tried it once and didn't like it.

The Letter N

My kids all grow up to be happy, healthy, well-adjusted adults.  Yeah, I can dream can't I?  LOL

The Letter P

Joy and intelligence.

The Letter Q
What's your favorite quote?
"It is our choices, not our abilities, who make us who we are."  Albus Dumbledore, Headmaster, Hogwarts School of Witchcraft and Wizardry, from the Harry Potter novels by J.K. Rowling

Think about that for a moment.  You could be talented, brilliant in numerous ways, but if you choose to harm, it doesn't really matter does it?

Are you quick to judge people? Good question.  I always think the best of someone until given a reason not to do so, however, I do usually get a good sense ofsomeone, quickly.

Do you think you're always right?
But...I am almost always right!!  Just ask my kids!  lol

Are you one to cry?

Uh, if someone answers rain, they need some paxil.  Fast.  SUN, for me please!!!!

Yes, but it is getting late for it now, maybe next year.

Autumn. Right now, I'll take anything over 55 degrees.

The Letter T
What time is it?

What time did you wake up? Well, around 11am, then I napped longer.

When was the last time you slept in a tent?
Along time ago when I was a wee girl scout.  Just that once was enough for me!

The Letter U
Are you wearing underwear?
Yes, I am!

On hubby I like those boxer briefs. Yum

ANY-freaking-WHERE, just on vacation please!

Northern NJ baby!  Home to Bonjovi and Springsteen!

Have you seen the x-games?
I've watched it on tv with the kids a few years back.

Do you own a xylophone?
Well, I would be surprised if anyone did, other than a FisherPrice one for baby!  But, no, none in our house anymore.

The Letter Y

Hi Dawn,
What an interesting meme ... and I'm delighted to see we have so much in common.  Like you, I've never used a "foghorn," either!!

This one looks like fun.  A good project for tomorrow.  Fog horns- on boats! To keep from running into other boats(ships) in the Fog.  The hand-held ones, I've never tried either.
