Do you believe in love at first sight?

I think I do even though it was not love at first sight with my husband. When I was 16 I was immediately drawn to someone who I would become involved with for many years- it wasn’t love as much as a physical attraction.

I wrote about my first meeting with my husband here

Your first car?

The year was 1978 and I remember it like it was yesterday. A friend took me to a dealer he knew, and we spent hours in the showroom. I decided on an Oldsmobile Starfire. Back then there were a myriad of colors to choose from, as well as interior colors. I chose silver with burgundy interior. I went for air conditioning which in those days wasn’t standard, and added more onto the price. I had enough to pay for half of what the car cost, so my father came with me to the bank and co-signed a loan for me. When I paid off the two year loan I felt I was a real grown up. I was 23.


Who taught you to ride a bike? How did it go?

My father taught me. We went to the parking lot of a nearby school and he let me balance and pushed me along until I got the hang of pedaling, and off I went!schwinn

Ugly and rich or beautiful and poor?

What an interesting thought- what is beauty really? It mostly comes from the inside I believe, and then is seen on the outside, making the person rich – maybe not monetarily, but rich in who they are as a person.

What was the first dish you could cook?

I learned to make Toll House Cookies as a child- chocolate chip cookies- but have no recollection beyond that. I only began cooking after I moved into my own apartment when I was in my early 20’s.alice lisa chanuka

  1. I have missed a lot during my absence. Nice to see you’ve been active, Lisa. It will take a while, but I will go through all your posts in a few days πŸ™‚


  2. I just love how you write. I feel like you are sitting in my kitchen talking with me over a cup of tea or something. And I bet you have saved about as many old photos as I have…which is a BUNCH!

    Thanks for sharing.


    • I am so glad you feel that way about reading what I have written! You are correct about the old photos- boxes of them – but I did put them up on a website so the entire family can enjoy seeing them too!


Thanks for stopping by-Would love to hear what you think!
