as a teenager?
I painted mine olive green...to match my carpet.
I also painted my furniture, and drew pictures on
it.
14. Very first paid job ever?
Well...I decided that boy's shouldn't be the only
ones that were allowed to have paper routes!
So...I applied...and got the job!!
I was in the 8th grade. I even got a special pin
that says..."Honorary First Girl-Carrier
of The Bee" (the Sacramento Bee is the paper I
delivered)....I made out like a bandit on that job!
Especially around the holidays...people thought
it was so cool to have a "girl carrier"...so they gave
me good tips and gifts. I still have that special
pin to this very day!

C,mon...I'm a child of the 60's...Haight Ashbury..
flower power...and all those good ole' hippie
days...Yes...to both questions!

Got caught sneaking into the High School
swimming pool with a bunch of friends
(male and female) and going skinny-dipping!!
(sure felt good though).
18. Left-handed or right-handed?
Right-handed.
19. Should you play a board game with me?
Sometimes....depends on my mood. I like
Clue...Monopoly...Battleship...Scrabble..Aggravation...
Scattergories...brain games that asks you questions
that make you think.
20. If you came to visit me what would we do?
Well...that depends...Summer or Winter?
Summer we would talk and laugh..have some ice
cool drinks...do some art....go for a dip in the pool...
relax...eat lots of good food...BBQ's...go for a
summer hike..look at the flowers..play with the
animals.
Winter...would be the same except we
would relax in front of the huge stone fireplace
...roast marshmallows...and hot dogs...and in the
evening run you a hot bath that you would
enjoy with soft glowing candles...and big warm
fluffy towels...
That about does it!!! Except for...Name 3 songs that
best describe you?
My 3 songs are....
1. "Lady of the Island" by CSN&Y
2. "Cool Change by Little River Band
3. "Leather and Lace" by Stevie Nicks
Now.....It's your turn!!! Thanks Daisy! for the fun
memories!
