  1. Fun to find out new facts about a respected blogger! Thanks for sharing this. I have some different answers than you, but I guess most are the same :)

  2. Wow, I'm impressed that you've never broken a bone or had to have stitches!

    1. Nope, I was a chicken as a kid and very cautious as an adult as well.

  3. That is quite a quiz! My Dad hasn't been to Hawaii or had kids.

  4. Oh this one is fun! I am going to have to try it too.

  5. Diane, many of our answers are the same, but many are different also. I hope you will try karaoke--it is great fun. Terrific post!

  6. I think I should take the quiz as notes for my memoir! Good writing exercise.

  7. Many of my bucket list things are on this list! I've jumped out of a plane, but it was on the ground! LOL

  8. Traveling alone is a strange thing. Like you, I've only done it for business. I always carry a book so I don't feel along during the meals.

  9. Fun list Diane. Most of my answers are like yours.

  10. Diane, Always a good idea to take inventory occasionally.
