What is your preferred hot drink: coffee, tea, water, hot chocolate, or other?
Coffee still gets the number one sport. I like everything else too. Hot chocolate, tea, mulled cider … but coffee is my jump-start on the day.
Without it, I feel like I’m pushing my car up a hill that never ends. Lately, it’s vanilla-flavored coffee, but it may be hazelnut next week. Or plain Columbian bean. As long as it’s hot and fresh, I want it.
What was your favorite toy as a child . . . and now?
I was passionate about dolls and oddly, I still am. I have nearly 300 of them. On shelves, in boxes, in display cabinets. Most of them hard plastic dolls of the 1940s,1950s, and early 1960s.
A few older ones made of composite — basically sawdust and glue, which is what they made dolls from before hard plastic injection molding came of age.
Candy factories of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy.
Which kind, if you were calling the shots?
Only ONE? That’s rough. I need two … one for dark chocolate, the other for crystallized ginger.
if I had to give up one of the two, I’d go with ginger. But I’d miss the chocolate. A lot.
Would you want $100,000 right now or $120,000 in a year (tax Free)?
I’d take it now. Because I could pay off all the bills leaving just the mortgage. I’d make up the remaining money in no time flat just by not having all those bills to pay. Life would get considerably easier here given a sizable infusion of cash. Very much easier and a lot more fun. Could you toss in a new car, too? With 4-wheel drive please?
