13. Where would you visit, this weekend, if you had the chance? Vancouver to see the hockey games at the Olympics!!

22. Bird watcher? Sometimes

23. Are you a morning person or a night person? Mornings I can get more things done, but I can stay up rather late reading or sparking as well.

24. Do you have any pets? One Super Pooch, Finnegan (or Houligan as he sometimes is!)

25. Any new and exciting news you'd like to share? One day I'll be able to say I'm among the employed again...but today is not that day.

26. What did you want to be when you were little? A farmer or a psychologist (I suppose I could have gone the combined route of counseling the crops instead...see, always thinking outside the box).

28. Are you a cat or dog person? More of a dog person, but I like cats too. Had a couple growing up.

29. Are you married? Yep, going on 12 years this September.

30. Always wear your seat belt? I used to not, but one time I got pulled over for speeding (had it on), got a ticket, had taken it off for some reason, drove down the street to work where they had a blockade of sheriffs checking for seatbelts (I somehow missed this entire scenerio in my mind) and got pulled over and ticketed for not wearing one. All in one flipping day...on my lunch hour no less! That'll teach me to not pack my lunch.... So now, yes, I do.

31. Been in a car accident? Sadly, a few. One was 2 days after buying my car. Rammed into a jeep and their hitch tore through my radiator. Aside from one very naughty word from my husband on the phone, he was ok with it. He liked the rental better than the car!

34. Favorite Flower? Don't have a favorite necessarily, but Tulips are on the top of the list

35. Favorite ice cream? I like the basics

36. Favorite fast food restaurant? Portillo's, but they only have those in the city and suburbs, so I only get there once every year or so. Sigh.....

37. How many times did you fail your driver's test? Happy to say I passed on the first try.

38. From whom did you get your last email? Sparkā€¦

39. Which store would you choose to max out your credit card? A sports store or a store for cabin/woodsy stuff

42. Broccoli? Love it any way...raw, cooked--yummy.

43. What was your favorite vacation? Renting a house on the lake in Northwoods Wisconsin and bringing Shamrock (our dog of 13 years) with us every year. Spent hours on the pontoon, sitting by the firepit outside, going into town, etc. The BEST!

44. Last person you went out to dinner with? My hubby

    Wilma and Betty are still dredging up memories of the past weekend I see. Tell them girls to drop it already. maybe they don't like that new sports bra and this is their way of letting you know. LOL!!!!

    You get tickets for driving like my wife. She used to always brag how she had the most perfect driving record and I always manage to get tickets. Well then one week she caught up to me and then some.

    here is how it went. Monday - One speeding ticket. Tuesday - Seatbelt ticket - Wednesday running a stop sign. Friday TWO SPEEDING TICKETS!!!

    That's right... she got 5 tickets in one week. 1,480 bucks. I still have them stapled to a cork board at the house. She hates it when I tell that story. LOL!!!

    Love the post as always.

    I thought we were the only people on the planet who didn't drink coffee! The worst is after someone has had about 2-3 cups and then gets REALLY close to your face to talk to you. HELLO!!! Pop a mint!!
