Do you enjoy grocery shopping?
No, not really. It is just one of those things that has to be done.
Are you following any particular news stories?
The only news that I really have any interest in watching this time of year is the hurricane news. We live on the Texas Gulf Coast, about 50 miles inland. We learned our lesson back in South Carolina with Hurrican Hugo in 1989. We were over 200 miles inland and were still hit pretty badly. We keep a pretty good eye on it here.
How do you feel about all of the technology we have today? Is it too much, just right, or not enough?
I believe that some of it is just too much; it removes too much of a need to think. Who needs to think when there's an application that can do this or that so that you don't have to? I think that some people would cease to function if all of a sudden today's technology died. Also, for all the "connecting" going on out there, families are more disconnected than they've ever been. Rarely do they sit down and talk anymore; I mean real talking. Folks are too busy Facebooking or yapping or texting on the phone and not engaging with the person across the table from them.
On a scale of 1-10(1 being the least) how much do you worry?
Ten would probably be close to accurate, but I'm working on it. Maybe becoming a Stepford woman would be the way to go. I wouldn't be real, so nothing would faze me.
Without any of your responsibilities or concern with how you would accomplish this, what would your three dream jobs be?
1. A professional genealogist. Those that came before us deserve to be remembered. We are because they were. Good or bad, if it weren't for them, we wouldn't be who we are today. We wouldn't even be here!
2. A memoir writer for hire. I don't want anyone's story to be lost.
3. Being a gospel singer like Sandi Patty. Heavenly Father gave me a song years ago in a dream, but not the memory to hold onto the words, nor the beautiful voice of my dreams to be able to sing it as the angel did in my dream.
This is my favorite Sandi Patty Song: We Shall Behold Him. I've only ever matched notes with her once in my life. I'll never forget it. :)
