Sunday Stealing- Senior Life

Senior Life


1. What is the farthest you have ever traveled?  We went to Kissimee, FL for our honeymoon and
 back  again to Disney World when Josh was about 5 years old.  It is 16 hours and 39 minutes
 from Missouri.  It was 1,129 miles.

2. Who did you date while in high school?  David, I do not want to talk about anyone online.  He
was a great guy though and from a great family.

3. What is one of the worst trips you've ever taken? What went wrong?  I do not get to travel very
often, so I try to enjoy all of my trips.

4. How do you like to spend a lazy day?  reading, blogging or playing games.

5. How old were you when you found out that JFK had been assassinated? How did it affect you? 
wasn't born yet.  I think he could have done great things for this country though.  It would
have been nice to know.  Very unfortunate.

6. Who has been one of the most important people in your life?  My family...Karl, Josh, my mom and
dad and Karl's family (mom, dad and sisters).

7. What is one trait you would most like to improve in yourself?  I am too shy.

8. Did you date someone in college?  I dated several someone's, but most serious was Rudy. 
He was also a great guy from a great family.

9. What was your dream car?  Brand new Toyota Camry

10. Did you have a family member you wish you'd gotten to know better?  I wish I could have known
my mom's Grandma Allie...she was a full blooded Cherokee Indian.  She is interesting to me. 
Allie died when I was really young.  I wish I had asked all of them more questions.

11. Tell me about your greatest gardening success.   I grew corn one time.  That was super fun.
 I am not much of a gardener, the soil in Missouri is all rocks and clay.  My Grandparents lived
 in Oklahoma and had black soil!  That I could garden in.

12. What was your Dad like when you were a child?  He was a football coach and teacher.  He was
fun and was always teaching me tie my shoes, so tell time, to cook, mow the
lawn.  He was a very hard worker and thank God for him.  He taught me so much!  My mom did
not spend much time teaching me much of anything.

13. What is the best job you've ever had?  teaching

14. What are your favorite songs?  I have a lot

15. If you could choose any talents to have, what would they be? I wish I could sing really good,
play piano and guitar.. I also wish I could paint or draw...something artistic.  I wish I were good at
public speaking too.



  1. That is cool how your grandma was Cherokee. My daughter in law is half Navajo. I once had a brand new Camry. I think in 1987. It was a really good car. Then we traded it in for a new Dodge Caravan. Then we got a new Toyota Highlander and finally a Kia Sorrento. Hopefully this one will last since we don't travel much. I did not know you were shy. I just think you are friendly!

  2. I really enjoy these memes and getting to know everyone better. Have a beautiful day, Lori.

  3. We are together on #7 and #14.
    Have a good Sunday.

  4. Shyness can be overcome but it is tricky. You basically have to just talk to people with no fear - and having the ability to self-deprecate helps massively.

    I am shy too - but I am conquering it. These days (pandemic aside) I just start a conversation. You will be amazed at how easy it can be.




  5. I love your description of your dad.

  6. Your Grandma Allie sounds amazing. And honestly, you come across as very creative in your writing on this blog!

  7. Oh, I wish you could have known your Grandma Allie too. She does sound very interesting and amazing. I would not have thought you to be shy. And you are a teacher as I would think that would help with shyness and the public speaking. Being a teacher is a wonderful career and takes a very special person to do so, especially today. I bet you are a very good one. I would love to play the piano, but am too lazy to take lessons. Actually when I was young I was too busy playing outside to ever sit down and practice the piano! I would love to learn to paint. I used to draw a lot as a kid, but never kept up with it and now I do good to draw a stick figure. So I take pictures with my camera...those are my paintings! Have a blessed day my friend.
