She picked them up from
so if you want to play along, link back to Judy’s post above.


  1. Tell us how you met your partner. Please be specific in telling your tale.
    Ad in a local paper. He placed it and I answered. We married exactly 2 years to the date we met and celebrate our 29th anniversary this year.
  2. What is your most romantic experience, again with details?
    Honeymoon in Amsterdam. It was the first time I’d been out of the country and when we came out of Central Station, the barrel organ started to play and I felt it was just for me!
  3. What is the most extravagant purchase you’ve ever made, and why did you buy it?
    A diamond solitaire ring when I got my divorce in 1981!
  4. What is your favorite swear word or expression, and when are you most likely to use it?
    Shit, and whenever I’m angry, frustrated, or surprised.
  5. What is your favorite kind of pie? With or without ice cream?
    Chicken,bacon and leek, served with roast potatoes and any veg except broad beans.
  6. While we’re on the subject, what is your favorite ice cream, and where did you last eat it?
    Mango, and I last had some in Swanage (UK) in 1994 or thereabouts.
  7. Who is your most unique friend and why? (May be someone from the past.)
    Gotta be Hubby. He’s my everything.
  8. What is your most irritating habit?
    Being moody.
  9. Who was your favorite teacher and why?
    Mr Phielon in Junior School 1965. He was really tall and took an interest in his pupils.
  10. Do you like being alone and if so, what would you probably be doing?
    I don’t mind my own company and would probably blog, play the piano, make cards, or read listening to my favourite music.
  11. What is the most outlandish thing you’ve ever done?
    Gone fishing with Bro in NZ in 2010. I’d never been before and didn’t have a clue, but it was a fun day.
  12. What superstition do you always follow?
    I’m not superstitious
  13. What famous person or animal have you met? Tell us about the meeting.

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! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. 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.
