A Dollar For Your Thoughts

The way I figure it, inflation has surely ruled out the old “penny” price for thoughts! 😉

So, by “your thoughts” I mean your answers to 5 questions . . .

I found a 20-question “meme” online and pared it down to a more manageable list for us. Feel free to copy and paste these into the comments section so you can answer too!


What is your favorite flavor of JELL-O?

Orange! I like it even better if fruit has been added.

Your prom night, what do you remember about it?

On the morning of the prom, my girlfriends and I went to a beauty salon to have our hair done in the latest fashion of the day. (We were so excited!) It was an upswept style that featured lots of “Grecian curls”. However, between the height of my hair and the shoes I wore, I ended up taller than my date!

My Dad had a creative solution though. When he took our picture as we were on our way to the event, he had us pose on the front steps with me standing one step lower than my boyfriend. Dad cropped the photo in such a way that you couldn’t tell we were standing at different levels.

Do you have any famous ancestors?

I’m not sure if I’ve ever mentioned that I love genealogy and have spent a lot of time happily involved in searching for my roots. 🙂

To answer the question: I need to do more research to absolutely confirm it, but it appears that I may be related to Laura Ingalls Wilder through my great-great-grandmother!

How many different beverages have you had today?

Tea, milk, lemon seltzer, and water

Do you draw your name in the sand when you go to the beach?

No. I would be much more likely to either build a sand castle, or make little designs in the sand using my bare feet and toes. 😉
