    Questions: Do you really want to know the answers?

    Quiet or noise: On the whole quiet – otherwise I can’t hear myself think. Alternated with ear drum shattering Beethoven and his ilk or Hard Rock – when doing the washing up.

    Last time I heard the word ‘unction’? Just now.

    By nature I am ‘early’, by necessity and good manners I am on time. And I am only late when I don’t want to be there in the first place or was unavoidably detained in a traffic jam.

    Shower. The ultimate luxury.

    Dog? German Shepherd/Alsation. Black. Grew up with one of the best. My first bodyguard. Gave me all the freedom I needed when most three year olds are still chaperoned.

    Smile? That comes easy. And I smile not just with my mouth – with my eyes too.

    1968? I don’t know. Have to ask my mother. She is our family’s diary.

    Superpower. Yeah, that’s a good one. Reminds me of “I Dream of Jeannie”, an Amercan sitcom with Larry Hagman (later of JR fame). I thought she was magnificent. Seriously, Grannymar: Can you imagine just crossing your arms, giving a nod with your head and, hey presto, you do have the desired result? I love magic.

    Snack? An apple will do me just fine.

    Thanks for cheering me up this fine sunny Tuesday morning.

    May all your wishes come true too,

    U

    Early or late? Neither, I was born exactly when predicted.

    Type of dog? Sometimes hangdog.

    Occurred in 1968? The Dagenham women’s strike that led to equal pay legislation.

    Q: Quest…I love the chase.

    U: Unction..Like Extreme? Not for a long time please.

    E: Energy.. Losing my Mojo at 84, but still doing my best.

    S: Smiles.. I like to give and get a bunch of smiles each day.

    T: Trains: I love to ride on the train.Enjoyed British Rail the most because it was on the “Wrong” track to me and that made the ride even more fun.

    I: Ignorance..Hate it ..

    O: Orgasm.. My neighbor told me that whenever she sneezed she had an orgasm. I said” Wow, are you taking anything for that?” She said,”Yes,Black Pepper.”

    N; Nanny..That is me to 8 Grandchildren, 2 Great Grandchildren and 4 Honorary Grandchildren.. How lucky can you get?

    S: Sincerely..This was a fun exercise,GM.

    Ursula – I must try crossing my arms while nodding my head to see if it really works.

    Nick – You were exactly on time while I was two months early. Does that make you older than me??

    Nancy – Smiles make my day too. Here comes a virtual hug for you. 😀

    Shackman – That super power would be handy for all of us.

    Many of the things I would write are already written, unction for example. I know I am mishearing things but i thought you wrote unctious. I heard that on one of the Britcom shows we get on our local public television station which broadcasts BBC America.

    As for dogs, make mine Corgis although at present I have 3 Pomeranians. The first Elizabeth’s favorite, the last Victoria’s favorite. See, I really am an Anglophile, but there is no A in question. T is definitely for trains and I could write a book on them. Dianne

    Dianne – It is about time I began to use trains again, the last train I travelled on was in Amsterdam in 2001 and before that in Denmark in 1988.
