Appetizer: Name 2 things you would like to accomplish in 2008.

I would like to lose 15 more pounds and I would like to start a women's life group (Bible study) in my home.

Soup: With which cartoon character do you share personality traits?

Okay, I don't have a clue. I just took two cartoon character personality tests online and one said I'm Tweety( I did not relate to the description of Tweetyness though). The other said I'm Charlie Brown(again, the traits they listed did not really match me). My best guess would have to be Velma from Scooby Doo, so who knows????

Salad: What time of day (or night) were you born?

I was born at night. I don't remember what time. I just know that my Mom was downtown with my oldest sister getting gloves for the prom when she went into labor.

Main Course: Tell us something special about your hometown.

Just listen to John Mellencamp's Small Town and you've pretty much got it. It's every Midwest, Bible belt, small town. A little to the east is the "big" town that is home to David Letterman's Alma mater, Jim Davis (Garfield), and Ball jars.

Dessert: If you could receive a letter from anyone in the world, who would you want to get one from?

I would love to receive a letter from any (or all) of the four children that we got really attached to when we were at an orphanage in Kazakhstan. Also from Mariah whose dad I was engaged to when she was born (long story) and I got very attached to before her dad and I split up. Three of the four children from the orphanage would be adults now and the other little girl would be about 11 or 12 as would Mariah. I would love to know how they are, where they are and how their lives are going.

Velma??? My, how we learn so much about one another in blogging! Yes, we have a bed and breakfast on Tillotson Avenue. It's run by an allergist who just retired this year. You would be really good at running a B & B.

Oh, Velma and Scooby Doo are a perfect combination! We sponsored several families from Cambodia, including 3 kids we took in for several years, which, because of divorce, we have lost some contact with, but the families we DO have with, oh my soul, love the crap out of us and my parents. I'm certain, even if you don't hear from them ever, that you had a huge impact on these kid's lives. Bless you!!!

Happy New Year! Love you!

Happy New Year to you too!
