I found this list of questions over at Suze’s blog suziland too or obsolete childhood. Hop on over and tell her howdy!
- WERE YOU NAMED AFTER ANYONE?
Yes. I was named after my great-grandma and her sister. You can read more about my naming here.
- WHEN WAS THE LAST TIME YOU CRIED?
Tuesday. Menopause, depression, PTSD, and too much stress equals an almost daily meltdown.
- DO YOU LIKE YOUR HANDWRITING?
I don’t like my handwriting these days. After over 20 years of typing several hours a day, my handwriting is deplorable.
- WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE LUNCH?
I don’t know at this point, but the lunch with my most favorite memories was Campbell’s Chunky Soup- Sirloin Burger and a ham sandwich.
- INSTAGRAM OR TWITTER?
I prefer Instagram and that is where I’m most active. Click here to see my Instagram profile.
- IF YOU WERE ANOTHER PERSON, WOULD YOU BE FRIENDS WITH YOU?
I don’t know. I’m not always a very approachable person. I am a loner and generally try to be invisible.
- DO YOU BAKE?
Yes, and I love it. You can see our cooking channel on YouTube here. It is called From the Kitchen of McClendon Villa.
- DO YOU LIKE FLYING?
I was scared to death the first time I got into an airplane, but loved it by the end of the trip. Now, I would just rather stay on the ground.
- WOULD YOU BUNGEE JUMP?
No way, Jose! Zipline is another story. I think that looks totally fun!
- WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE CEREAL?
I’m a Southern Girl and should be saying grits (the real kind, not the quick-cooking kind), but I’m a bad Southern Girl who loves Golden Grahams, Raisin Bran (heavy on the raisins!), and Cocoa Pebbles.
- DO YOU UNTIE YOUR SHOES WHEN YOU TAKE THEM OFF?
Nope. I just slide them off. My shoes don’t have ties. I always wear sandals.
- DO YOU THINK YOU’RE STRONG?
I know that I must be to have survived some of the things that I have survived. Physically, I used to be called Hercules. I could press over 700 pounds when I was a 99-pound 16 year old. Now, I’m doing good to lift a gallon of milk, thanks to chronic anemia.
- WHAT IS YOUR FAVOURITE ICE CREAM?
Blue Bell Dutch Chocolate, but I’ve never met a Blue Bell that I didn’t like.
- WHAT IS THE FIRST THING YOU NOTICE ABOUT PEOPLE?
Eyes are the first thing that I notice.
- RED OR PINK?
Red, unless we’re talking roses. Then, I prefer pink.
- WHAT IS THE LEAST FAVOURITE THING ABOUT YOURSELF?
My body is my least favorite thing about me.
- WHO DO YOU MISS THE MOST?
My daddy. He died 9 December 2012, while my husband was in the hospital on death’s door, too. It was a horrible time. I wanted to be with my daddy and couldn’t for a multitude of reasons. He never liked for people to tell him “Happy Birthday”, so, I didn’t call him to tell him “Happy Birthday” that year. He was dead 6 days later. Now, I’ll never be able to tell him, well, not until I am in Heaven, too.

Baby powder, fresh cut grass, and the after-rain smell.

Our youngest daughter.

While I wouldn’t really choose either of these, between the two, I’d choose the mountain hideaway.
- FAVOURITE SPORT TO WATCH?
I’m not a sports fan.

Brown with golden flecks.
