My 11 Questions to Answer:

7.  Do you exercise? Not enough.  I love exercising.  I just have trouble making the time.

8.  Car or Motorcycle? (If you had no kids)  Definitely a car!  I have never like motorcycles.  I feel too vulnerable.

9.  Favorite color? Red, It just makes me feel alive.

10.  Prefer a house, condo, or townhouse? I have always had a house, but maybe someday I would like to try living in a condo or townhouse.  In a few years, I would like to downsize and travel more.

    1. I am anxious to read your answers. You have such a great sense of humor!

  7. Congratulations! I love your hollywood paparazzi fact. I would do the same thing!! Too funny. And so cool about almost making it onto Card Sharks! I secretly want to be on Wheel on Fortune one day- I've even made a audition video! haha.. guess it's not a secret anymore. ;)


    1. I went to California with a friend. We did just about everything a tourist would do! When we went we were supposed to get to audition for Wheel of Fortune, but they switched us to Card Sharks. We got to be in the audience for Merv Griffin. They picked us to sit in the front row. It was fun! Quite a few years ago now.

      Good luck on making it to Wheel of Fortune, I would love that too!


Please take a moment and let me know what you think about this post. I love reading your comments. I try to answer every comment, maybe not immediately, but as quickly as I can.

Thanks!!! Betty
