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.

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!
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.
