Passing the Torch - The Facebook 25



I was tagged in Facebook to write 25 random things about myself. Wow, was this a hard task. Always focusing on others, (my family) it took a few hours to come up with this list.

A few of my favorite authors are John Steinbeck, Joan Didion, Louise Erdrich among others.

My favorite flowers are roses and daisies.

Two of my favorite movies are Love Story and Officer and a Gentleman


I love animals, dogs and cats mostly.

My favorite cookies are oatmeal raisin and chocolate chip

My grandmother was an inspiration to me in all things that she did

My all-time favorite song is sung by John Denver, “Sunshine on My Shoulder” although, country music singer, Gary Allen just released his latest hit, “She’s So California” and that may just replace the other song as my favorite.

I want to be a published author and be really rich.

I like getting most roses from my husband for any occasion

I went to Catholic school for all of years of education.

In 2008, I returned to college to finish my bachelor’s degree in English Literature.

I will have been on my job for 11 years this month

I prefer living in California, never having lived anywhere else. I never have to worry about snow, tornadoes, hurricanes.

I love my cat Sassy, she’s the best dog I ever had, so loyal and always by my side, except when she’s walking across my desk

Both my parents are still living and married for 46 years

I’ve traveled to the Grand Canyon in Arizona and to Niagara Falls on the American side and Canadian Side.

Purple and pink are my favorite colors

I love leather and have leather couches, jackets, purses and upholstery in my car

I would have liked to have lived in the 1800’s and helped to settle the American West
I plan to visit all 21 California missions, having been to San Fernando Mission, Santa Barbara, Santa Inez, and San Diego

One year I went to see the Pasadena Rose Parade and sat front row along the parade route.

For a college newspaper article I got the chance to interview the former mayor of Los Angeles in the 1970’s, Sam Yorty.

Sleeping is one of my favorite things to do.

Writing is my passion

I’ve seen the national treasures of California the Devil’s Postpile, the Devil’s Punch Bowl.

My favorite time of year is Autumn when the cool wind comes through the valley and pushes the heat of the summer off to another year.

If I tag you in Facebook I hope to hear about you real soon.
