Great meme. It is always so interesting to read other memes.

Kansas Bob said...

I followed suit at my place.. we have a few in common - like our hair color :)

Momma Roar said...

I'd be a blue crayon and I love lilac and vanilla scents too!!

I really enjoying learning more too - its funny how these little questions reveal more about us!

Ahh...sarcasm...something I am forever working on...and biting my tongue over...

Susan said...

I think this was a very fun read, Susan. You have great answers and it's so neat getting to know a bit more about fellow bloggers.

Hugs,

Susan

Karen said...

I really enjoyed reading yours Susan. I can imagine how lovely it is visiting at your house, I think of a warm Christian atmosphere of peace and faith just radiating out. You make a difference to many and your integrity on blogworld just shines!

DO YOU USE SARCASM A LOT?

Hope you still love me even though I tend to be somewhat sarcastic. I try not to hurt others by my unusual humor.

Loved learning a few more bits and pieces about you :)

I love chocolate ice cream even though I'm not a real ice cream eater.

I think I would surely be a green crayon.

Oatmeal lovers of the world, unite!

I like REAL oatmeal, not that instant stuff (ugh!) with chopped walnuts, cinnamon and a few raisins and dried cranberries. No sweetener. How do you take yours?

diana said...

i found this question interesting; if you were a different person, would you be friends with yourself? who would say no? and if they did, it's a wake up call to the kind of person they are.

i enjoyed all your answers. some of my answers would be similar.

To answer your question today, my parents are in good health. My dad has had some scary bouts with pneumonia and other lung issues, but is doing well right now. It is a privilege to have them so close. I was born one year after they were married, my sis the next year, and first brother the next then two more boys later on). They were amazing parents for being so young.

Hi there, I am new to blogging and came over from slk's blog. I am a mother of 4 girls. I noticed a link to autism on your blog...One of my girls has a form of autism so I think I will try the link. I love that you and your husband have been married for 49 years and counting. Both sets of my grandparents were married long one made it to 51 years the other made it to 63 years. My parents did not do so well but my husband and myself will hit 23 this summer. I also love the automatic link that Christ makes between one Christian and another. We are so fortunate to know where we are going and to know just who it is that made that possible.....~KSR~

Short Stop said...

I would never, ever, ever in a million years bungee jump, either. I am TERRIFIED of heights and the thought of it causes me to break in a sweat!

It was fun learning more about you this way!
