Name 3 things that you think are strange.
Eating sushi, facial piercings. It must be too late and I am having a brain cloud because I'm not coming up with a third thing. That in itself is strange...does it count? Lol!
What was the last ceremony you attended?
A wedding. One thing the couple did different, which we had never seen, was after they were pronounced man and wife, etc., he carried her down the aisle.
What is one lesson you have learned in the past year?
It was reinforced to me how God equips us when He calls you to do a particular job. I was continually awed by Him as I watched Him provide and sustain our son as he went through his pilot training in the Air Force. Over and over again I saw how He provided the skill, the wisdom, the knowledge and ability to be able to accomplish what He had called him to do.
Tell us about one of your childhood memories.
My brother (who was a Downs) and I were going to go out to eat for dinner. He loved McDonalds so we went there all the time when he had a choice. This one time, I didn't want to go there. I decided we should go to Burger King. But he really insisted on going. So I thought for a minute and then I told him *ahem* cough, cough* blush* that just like other businesses where people get to go on vacation, McDonalds had people who got to go on vacation. (Now, I did not say that they were closed for vacations...but, I did allude that someone might be on vacation.) He looked at me like, "Oh, I never realized that. Well, since McDonalds is on vacation let's go to Burger King." The next day was Sunday and we had to drive right by McDonalds on our way to church. I didn't think a thing of it. He and I are sitting in the back seat as I we stop at the red light (wouldn't you know it) right next to...yep, McDonalds. He takes one look and says, "Oh, look! McDonalds is back from vacation!" At which time my mom and dad both say, "What?" I had to fess up and explain. It's been a big joke in the family ever since....*blush*
If you could extend any of the four seasons to be twice as long as normal, which season would you want to lengthen?
I would have to choose Fall and Spring. I think I like them equally. If I had to absolutely choose one then maybe Fall because it has Indian Summer.
