Questions from Tao-Talk

Picked this one up from Paula

1. Pets or no pets? If pets, please do tell about them. If no pets, why not?
Dogs definitely. Maggie will be 14 in January and we’ve had her since she was a 7 week old pup.

2. What’s the farthest you’ve been from your home?

New Zealand. Went on my own in 2010 for two months to see Bro.

3. What’s the funniest thing you ever saw?

A kid showing off on her mobile phone walking straight into a tin display.

4. Who is your favorite comedian?

Loved Morecambe and Wise. IMO single comics are few and far between now.
5. What’s your favorite TV series, past or present?

NCIS: I love Gibbs.

6. If you had a time machine and could go to only 3 places, where would they be and why?

Back to the hospital in May 1996 to hug my Dad and tell him I loved him before he had his heart attack.
To Mum’s bedside in January to say my final goodbyes in person before she passed away.
To August 1995 and the Cantonese restaurant where we celebrated their 45th Wedding Anniversary, not knowing it would be the last time we’d all be together.
7. What do you consider your greatest skill?

My natural gift of music

8. If you could be frozen in a cryogenic tank right now and wake up in 50 years, would you do it? Why or why not?

– No. I would know no-one, my family, such as it is, would all be gone and it would be just my luck for my tank to malfunction anyway.

9. If you had to choose between losing your hearing and losing your sight, which one would you choose to lose?

Tough choice as I love nature in all its beauty and sounds, but I would guess my hearing as the songs I love to play are all in my head anyway and there is nothing decent worth listening to today.

10. What is your favorite fairy tale?

Where the Rainbow Ends by Clifford Mills.

11. What is one thing you hope to get for the holidays (if you celebrate where gifts are exchanged)?

Hopefully more birds coming to the new feeder we’re going to put up in the garden.

About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! We have an elderly dog called Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.
