"The last movie we went to was the new Avengers one. My hubby wanted to see it. I'd not seen any of the prior ones, so it was not on my bucket list. It was pretty good, considering it is not my 'kind' of movie. Probably would've…"
"I collect Matryoshka dolls. The first one I ever saw was at my then boyfriend's house and it was actually from Russia but pretty beat up from the kids being able to play with it. For some reason, it triggered something and I started to collect…"
"Well, 2 out of 3 is not bad. I LOVE chocolate, probably more of a not too dark kind. 70% cacao is about the highest I go. I enjoy popcorn and especially the mix of cheese and caramel. Coffee--never! I'm a tea, hot or iced and diet Pepsi gal."

"We have had several dogs in our married life. Tippy White Socks, Billy, Molly, and Patches. All have gone on to doggie heaven. We are contemplating another...we'll see. When you go away you have to do something with them, right? My…"
"I remember stores being closed over the noon hour/afternoon so people could go to church. We had school off at least in the afternoon too.
No need to throw my name in the hat for this book. I have a copy and am reading it."
