Melanie always included an optional gratitude section at the end and I see no reason to change that.

1.  Do you have a lot of friends or do you know a lot of people ?

I know a lot of people because I still live in the same small city where I was born and my father before me was also born here.
I know a large number of families having been a family day care provider for 46 years here.
As for friends, I count my friends on the fingers of one hand. I have a higher standard for ‘friends’ than acquaintances, but I feel a friendly affection for many.

2.  If you are at a party and know very few of the guests, do you mingle and introduce yourself, sit on the sidelines and people watch, or discreetly leave?

If the gathering has a dog or small children on the premises, I’ll direct my attention to them first because I usually like them far better than unknown adults. BUT I can mingle well because I’m not the least bit intimidated by people so if someone seems interesting, I’ll introduce myself.

3.  What is the best job you have ever had?

It used to be being a childcare provider and a mother but now it’s being a Grandma. I sense a theme developing. 😉

4.  Can you swim?

I’m a very good swimmer capable of lying on my back without any effort and just floating. My problem is that I abhor being wet. So, as I’ve aged, I haven’t had much of an interest in swimming.

What fictional family would you like to be part of?  (think TV shows, cartoon or books or some fictional family that you admire)

The Waltons are the epitome of a close healthy family to me. It doesn’t get any better than a rural life with a multigenerational household.

Which band or artist would you like to play at your funeral or memorial service? (the artist can have passed on too)
Hands down, Smokey Robinson.
His performance in the movie The Temptations, touched me deeply.

Preference.   Popcorn, M&Ms or other.   Choose something you love snacking on.
I’m not a big snacker. But a salty and sweet experience of extra-sharp cheese, crackers, and fruit, would be hard to pass up.

If you could be any supernatural (fantasy) character, what would you be?  (Think Elves, fairies, dragons or whatever)

I’d choose a Phoenix.
To have the ability to rise from the ashes and be ‘reborn’ would have no rival, IMO.

Please share the best advice you’ve ever gotten which you feel ought to be shared with everyone.

Mind your own business and someday you may have a business of your own.
