What’s the best part of your day? Rising at the break of day, walking with good friends and experiencing God’s marvelous morning sky filled with stars (sometimes shooting), gazing at the moon and listening to the wonder sounds of nature

If you could select another profession, what would you do? I’d like to teach disabled children.

Favorite food: Old Fashion Homemade Chocolate fudge like my Mama use to cook

Favorite weekend destination: A weekend get-a-way down by the riverside, and boat riding with the blue sky above, looking at the glassy, mirrored picture of the tree limbs filled with green leaves reflecting upon the surface of the glistening, sunlit water in front of the boat, leaving behind a trail of ripples and waves

Favorite color: Green

What’s the best life lesson you’ve learned, and who taught you? Not to be so sentimental about material things such as wedding gifts. I learned this from not only the Bible but in real life by the person that robbed our home when we were first married and stole a wedding gift that was from a dear departed neighbor.

What’s your hobby? Actually, I have two: squirrel hunting, and writing poetry

What gives you the blues? Listening to a sad country music song on the radio

What’s your best childhood memory? Dressing up in my Mama’s clothes, slipping on her high heeled shoes, lavished with all sorts of jewelry, smearing on her lipstick and walking proudly down the street with my two little girlfriend look-a-likes

Tell us one true thing: Life goes on no matter what

What frightens you most? Tornadoes in Memphis, Tenn., at a barbecue cookoff

If you could pass or change one law, what would it be? That prayer be publicly allowed anywhere at anytime

What last brought tears to your eyes? A sad movie (I’m very tenderhearted)

What kind of music do you like, and who’s your favorite performer? I love all kinds of music-from gospel to rock ’n roll to bluegrass, and I love music that is bouncy and has a peppy beat that makes you want to just move your body. My favorite performer is a toss-up between “listening” to Willie Nelson sing love songs or watching and listening to Elvis Presley singing hymns.
