1. Do you have siblings and are you close with them?
I have one brother, six years younger.  We are not close, but we communicate and check on each other.  We live on opposite sides of the country…Washington state and Maine.   It’s been over ten years since we have seen each other.  Probably over twenty years.

2. Would you rather be slightly UNDER weight or slightly OVER weight?
I don’t think I’ve ever been under weight…but as I am elderly, a little over is better.

3. What’s your favorite State Fair food to splurge on?
I don’t go to the state fair…I go to the Common Ground Fair.  My favorite food there is a Greek Gyro,
tempura, and a great Orr’s Island seafood chowder.

4. What are your thoughts on your kid(s) going to school in a few weeks?
It’s my grandchildren going to school in the next couple of weeks in August.  I think it is too hot for them to go to school unless the schools are air conditioned.
I always looked forward to my children going to school in the fall…I worried about them possibly getting hurt during the summer.
5. Pool or Ocean? 
Neither.  I grew up in Wisconsin and it was a lake.  The lake would gradually warm up, as much as a northern lake can warm up.  I also like to swim in a pool, and given the chance, the ocean…being as cold or colder in downeast Maine, as the lakes in Wisconsin !
