Wall paper removed.
Kitchen update.   

2.) What do you miss about your childhood? 
I posted about my Carefree neighborhood here.  

3.) What do you do on your spare time on the weekends? 
We either stay home or visit friends.  We are retired so there is really no more weekends.  We try not to do anything such as shopping or do the amusement/tourist things on weekends when it might be more crowded.

4.) What do you appreciate most in your life? 
My husband, my family and friends and the dogs.

I think healthy.  At my age, if I am not healthy, there would be no reason to be rich, other than to pay the medical bills.   

6.) If you could go back in time would you and why?
I don't think so.   I would probably tamper with the timeline. 

7.) Favorite game as a child?
I loved playing cards and board games with my friends.  One summer our neighbor had a 15 year old niece come for a visit, when I was 12 or 13, we played Canasta and went to  movies all summer long.  It was wonderful.

The Computer.  I need to shut it off and do some DIY.

Ross and TJ Maxx   

11.) What TV shows can't you live without?
Hah! Since we moved to MO and gone back to very basic cable (20 channels), I can live without all kinds of cable TV.  With internet TV we really do watch what we want and it still include a pay per view on Amazon Prime. I wouldn't be able to do without Netflix and Hulu.  I love the Big Bang Theory, Downton Abbey and

Modern Family.

Science Fiction, I am a closet Trekker.
