A huge “Thank you!” to the multi-talented  Margo Benson for tagging me! (Check out her blog. She is a jewelry artist, holistic therapist, and sings in a medieval/folk duo. . .AND she writes! This lady is way cool.)

All I have to do is answer a few questions and Tag another three bloggers.  So here goes. . .

1. If you could go back in time and re-live a moment, what would it be?
My wedding.

2. If you could go back in time and change one thing, what would it be?
I’ve had so many loved ones die way too soon from terminal illnesses. I wish I could go back and change things so they could:  a) die without pain when the time came; and b) enjoy all the years they missed.

3. What movie/TV character do you most resemble in personality?
This is a tough one. I had to ask my husband to weigh in on this.

Joe:  “Lara Croft, Tomb Raider. Or Emma Peel. That would be cool.” 

Me:  “No, honey, not the character you want me to be. The character I most resemble, personality-wise.”

Joe:  “Oh, you mean, like June Cleaver or Donna Reed?”

Me:  “Seriously?”

Joe:  “But I thought you said. . .”

Me:  “When was the last time you saw me dusting the house while wearing a dress with heels and pearls?”

Joe:  “Ha. When was the last time I saw you dusting, period?”

Me: “Hey. I dust. Sometimes. I bet Stephen King never gets razzed about dusting.”

Joe: “I’ve got it. You’re Laura Petrie!”

Me: “Hmm. Well, she made capris cool. I guess I can live with that.”

4: If you could push one person off a cliff and get away with it, who would it be?
I’m too chicken to push anyone off a cliff. I’d be afraid they’d grab me on their way over. Now, if it were poison. . .and I’d get away with it? Really?

5. Name one habit that you want to change in yourself?

6. Describe yourself in one word.


7. Describe the person who named you in this meme in one word.


8. Why do you blog? Answer in one sentence.
I started blogging to build a platform, learned that the community of bloggers to which I belong is generous and supportive, and now blog because I so appreciate the encouragement and friendships I’ve made. I also hope I manage to give something back once in awhile. (Yeah, I know, that’s two sentences. Oopsie.)

9. Name three people to send this meme to and inform them.
In order to learn more about folks who are new to me, I’m tagging these three, two of whom I found through the A-Z Challenge. These ladies always have something interesting/thoughtful/funny/insightful to say:

* Joanne at 10 Minutes 2 Breathe

* Alison (Miss Ali) at Just Me and My Words

* Patti at The New Sixty

Ladies, you’ve been tagged!

See y’all back here for Book Blurb Friday!

    Laura Petrie. I love it! I'm glad I don't have to answer that question, or ask my husband to help me answer it. I can't think of a character I resemble, but I have a picture of me that looks like Judi Dench.β€” KKay, Alberta, CanadaAn Unfittie's Guide to Adventurous Travel

    Now you should have learned something from this-never ask a husband to describe you. LOL!

    wait…you didn't answer #4! I have such a long list. You don't want to off ANYBODY? Laura Petrie is good. At least it's not the mom from The Middle.

    Very funny, Lisa! LOVED the conversation with your husband! And that's exactly how I feel about pushing someone off a cliff, except I know without a doubt who I'd want to push! That's probably not a good thing, eh? πŸ™‚ Great post!

    Hi y'all! I've posted replies here that haven't shown up, so clearly Blogger is still eating things it shouldn't. I think my comments on your blogs are sticking; don't know what's wrong here, but I'll try to figure it out. In the meantime, please know that I've tried to post replies, and I do appreciate your comments!
