Was school easy or difficult for you? How so? School was easy. And because it was, I never really excelled at anything. I hardly studied and coasted through with a solid “B” average.Interestingly enough, my sister was just the opposite and dropped out of high school when she was a Junior. On my first day at that same high school, I was called into the principal’s office. He asked if I was related to Marie and when I confessed, he said he would keep an eye on me and at the first sign of trouble, deal with me as he had with my sister. I never saw him again.
List some of your favorite types of animals. By now, people must know I am not fond of pet photos. That is not to say that I don’t like pets. I grew up with dogs and had several cats later in life. I also wouldn’t mind owning a horse, though my riding days would seem to be numbered.
What is your favorite large city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most? Funny, but my first response was “It has to be New York”. Excuse me? What? I have always openly proclaimed San Francisco as my favorite city! But when Cee asks, I speak without thinking? I went to San Francisco State College and lived in the city for 7 years. I fell in love with Betty during Freshmen Orientation and we dated exclusively from day one. We used to take the M bus from the school into the city, then walk aimlessly, maybe see a movie. But, our favorite date was buying a loaf of sourdough bread and some cheese and hike on up to Coit Tower, sit on the wall overlooking the bay, and eat our dinner. I don’t remember what we used to drink in those early years as neither of us was old enough for wine. I’ve been back several times since and it still remains my favorite city.
What inspired you or what did you appreciate this past week? Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. So many things this week, but the one that stands out the most is the family member who is 21 and just got married. She never took a camera class in her life. But nobody ever told her she couldn’t and so started her own photography business when she was 19. This month, she has quit working behind a desk because she is making much more money shooting weddings. I hate her! 🙂
