Have you ever participated in a distance walking, swimming, running, or biking event? Tell your story. See the photo above? I can go the distance on sleeping. Eight hours is easy for me. Ten? No problem.
Name one thing not many people know about you. I would venture to say that many people have forgotten, or never did read, that I am considerably older than Emilio Pasquale. “Luke, I am your father!” Yes, Emilio is fashioned after my son. He will be 34 this year. This is the second marriage for both Lynn and myself. Lynn’s first husband died of cancer, my first wife is still very much alive. But between Lynn and myself, we have ten kids.
What is your favorite flower? I don’t really have a favorite flower. In fact, I’ve gone on record as stating I do not like flowers. At least in captivity. Lynn has forbidden me to purchase flowers on her birthday or anniversary or in apology for the countless times I have been at fault! But I have also been known to travel far and wide when the desert wildflowers are in bloom. And watching the hummingbirds levitate over a flowering plant is truly a sight to behold.
Things I want to have in my home (paintings, hot tubs, book cases, big screen tv etc) We are at that time in our lives when we want to scale down and rid ourselves of some of the clutter we’ve accumulated over the years. So, I think all we really want, or need, is a roof and a bed. And books, music, probably classic movies on dvd (and a way to view them), coffee, wine, pizza at least once a week. Friends, and family! Oh, and that hot tub? Just make it a shower. For two. 🙂
Optional Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Last week? Grateful? I guess I am grateful that my 2006 Nissan Altima has just passed 204,000 miles and did not “crap out” on us in Death Valley yesterday. As for the following week? A movie or two, hopefully getting the book I am working on into it’s first edit, and a trip on the weekend to a section of Route 66 between Barstow and Needles.
I’m happy to hear that Cee and Chris are better this week and that Cee was able to come up with these questions. It’s always fun! Join in sometime! Check out Cee’s Share Your World every Monday.
