    Keep thinking I should attend the NOAA storm classes so I can be a laser certificate certified Spotter... although... in Kansas I have actually seen tornadoes...

    Panama City Beach FL is awesome, spent some time there one year. Nancy Drew was my favorite childhood book and is probably one of the few things that kept me sane and not suicidal!!

    Oh, I loved Nancy Drew books. I grew up reading those. I like Paul Newman & Gregory Peck too, but also Kirk Douglas. And I finally had the chance to watch the North by North West movie a long time ago.
    I love being out doors and exploring new places but hopefully I will have time to do some in the future. Right now I am planning on being with the kids at Easter. So I am looking forward to that. Both the grandsons are growing like weeds! Baby is so cute, and he will be 8 months old on the 12th of April. His legs look like sturdy tree trunks.
    In the meantime, I will keep your father in prayer.

    As a storm spotter down you chase down storms? My nephew does that.

    1.) I love most cheeses, but blue cheese is near the bottom of the list.
    2.) I smoked while in college to see what it was like. I didn't like it so I never continued it.
    3.) No guns here.
    4.) I don't drink any sweet drinks. Haven't had a soda in ages, and gave up coffee with creamer.
    5.) I have an AA in computer science and a business school certificate which was a two-year college course in one year.
    6.) At a BBQ I love all kinds of foods but haven't been to one in years.
    7.) I like several movies. My favorites are: The Hunt for Red October, Jurassic Park and Jurassic World, (I love dino movies), and movies that inspire me.
    8.) Right now I am basically drinking Vital Proteins with oj & ice, but sipping on it throughout the day. But for the most part water.
    9.) I can do a lady's push up, bending from the knees on the floor in like a 45-degree angle.
    10.) Purple, mauve are my favorite colors. But I love pastels for decorating.
    11.) Hobbies are: OneStroke Painting, learning water color painting, some knitting, crocheting, sewing, and just being creative with crafts and such.
    12.) No A.D.D.
    13.) Yes, I wear glasses.
    14.) Teen crushes were: Richard Greene, (played Robin Hood on tv series), and Robert Vaughn from The Man from U.N.C.L.E.
    15.) Three goals: to continue to eat for health, to just move more, and to make sure my walk matches my talk.
    16.) Three drinks. Hmm..., Vital Proteins, water, and herbal hot tea, mainly green Jasmine tea.
    17.) Current worries. None at the moment. But one of my goals is to see light at the end of the tunnel and that for me is getting all the cracks and the nail pops fixed on Monday since I've been in the condo one year from today. And to get it done before the drywall warranty expires on April 30th.
    18.) Three things I love: dogs, (you said not people, lol!), rain, beautiful music.
    19.) My favorite place to be is with my family or outdoors where I can see God's beautiful creation. I love the Skyline drive.
    20.) I stayed home for the New Year.
    21.) I would love to go back to Israel or down to Disney World's Epcot again.
    22.) Worst diets? All of them. I am now eating for health, and when I told my RD that I am sick and tired of having to walk 1 to 2 hours a day to keep up the weight loss and I am not doing that any more; because what you do to get the weight off, you have to continue to do it. She said to me, I wish other people would understand that. So I am just eating for health and just keeping busy and moving and that's enough even if I only lose 1/2 pound a week I will be satisfied with that.
    23.) Yes, I own several pairs of slippers.
    24.) My 3 favorite books: The Bible, historical books, most interesting that I have read: Mein Kampf by Adolf Hitler; and the Koran which I read many years ago.
    25.) I have flannel sheets for winter. But no satin. Although I love really good Egyptian cotton sheets that have like 600 threads per inch. They are softer and wear longer than lower counts. For the money, they are worth it.
    26.) I really don't have any go to meals. I do have snacks. Cheese & apples or cheese and dates/raisins.
    27.) I am at home.
    28.) My favorite occupation would be to paint cards with encouragement.
    29.) Favorite out fit: blue jeans, tops, and my sneakers with my Fitbit Zip.
    30.) I listen to Pandora. I love Yanni, and mostly Christian music, and classical.
    31.) Favorite foods: chocolate, (I am allowed 1 piece of dark every day), bread, (it's sourdough but not everyday), and good healthy foods: fruits and roots.
    32.) On my mind: getting my drywall fixed.
    33.) Last time I belly laughed, at something funny on face book.
    34.) Favorite animals. I love animals of all kinds but I am partial to beagles.
    35.) Worst injury: having to have back surgery several years ago. I am fine now.
    36.) Two tvs.
    37.) Silliest thing, every diet under the sun. Finally find a great RD.
    38.) I love to dance.
    39.) Best trips: to Israel and to Alaska on a Charles Stanley cruise.
    40.) Did tent camping many years ago with my parents and sisters. Now that I am older, it's a motel/hotel for me.

    Loved it! Was going to whine / razz you a month ago, ask you where your blogs went again. But decided I'd better keep it zipped.
