Questions to answer:

1.  What is your earliest memory?

I have a remarkably poor memory when it comes to my childhood.  It’s all in bits and pieces, really, which made this an extremely difficult question.  I have this image of hula dancing with my sister, but I’m not sure if that’s a true memory or a family story I’ve absorbed over time.  I’d have to say the earliest memory that I’m absolutely sure is real would be playing outside our house the first time we lived in Virginia.  I would have been around four or five years old.  It was a brick ranch home, and when we’d play hide and seek there was a perfect spot behind a tall bush at the corner of the house. I’d press my back up against the bricks and peer out through the leaves, enjoying the cool shade and feeling like I was the only person in the world.

2.  Do you write thank-you notes?

Absolutely.  I freely admit I’m a Miss Manners freak – it’s one of the books I chose to keep from my grandmother’s house after she passed away, and so far I haven’t met anyone else who’s read it for pleasure.  I enjoy the closure a nice thank you note brings.  Someone took the time to do something kind or generous, and it feels good to send a note saying how much their thoughtfulness means to me.

3.  Tell us one thing people might not know about you.

The only broken bones I’ve had were ones cracked by medical personnel.  I had my first broken bone experience when I was 26 years old having bunion surgery.  (Bring on the old-age jokes, people.)  They break a bone in your foot and reset it during the surgery; I had no idea anything could hurt that much, so the first few days were a real eye opener.  The second time was when the oral surgeon broke my jaw to reset it during that whole braces experience.  Good times.
