  1. Hi, Murees. Thank you for thinking of me. I already have this award but would love to answer your questions since they are so fun:)

    1. Worst job - I was a youth worker at a level 12 adolescent residential facility in California. I hated it. I was called every cuss word in the book and was supposed to "discipline" gang members. That didn't happen. I quit after 4 weeks.
    2. Favorite snack - salt & vinegar chips
    3. Favorite TV series - the Golden Girls
    4. I'd like to meet Betty White - I just love her.
    5. If I was an animal, I would want to be my dog. He has it made.
    6. I'm most grateful for my relationship with God, my husband and the beach.
    7. I hate negativity - in people, in the media, in the world.
    8. I include exercise in my weekly routine. Does that count?
    9. I love animals. I cry when I see a stray and ask God to find him a home. If I lived on a ranch, I'd have hundreds of animals.
    10. Favorite season - definitely spring (in Florida)
    11. Favorite food - fresh veggies and fruit

    Thanks again for thinking of me.

  2. Congratulations on the award, Murees. I find rock music calming too :-)

  3. Congratulations! Rock music - too cool.

  4. Jaime - You are so welcome. Thank you for sharing your answers with me. Your worst job definitely beats any of mine. My dogs have a pretty good life too, I sometimes I wish I was them. Thanks for participating.

    Annalisa - Thank you. Rock is just the best. Thanks for stopping by.

    Alex - Thank you! Yep, rock music is king. Thanks for visiting.

  5. Thanks Murees - you made a bad day good! Now I'm just in the process of nominating eleven others.

  6. I like Stephen King too. He is an awesome author.

  7. Hi Murees, sorry it took me so long to get here. Thanks so much for this award. I'll pass it along in my next post. And I'll visit the other recipients.

  8. Thank you for leaving me the award, Murees. I'll be running like crazy today and tomorrow, but will answer your questions on Friday. Hope I can figure out how to link my answers back to your blog. I'm not the most technically savvy person in the world, LOL.


  9. P.S. I can relate to a lot of your answers. I think most writers are loners. Sometimes I get a wild hair and yearn for company, but mostly I'm okay doing my own thing.

    So glad you're enjoying Stephen King. Although I've had the pleasure of reading the works of several authors from a variety of genres, King's is the voice I love most. He seems to have an uncanny connection into the human psyche. What impresses me is the how well he transfers this knowledge on paper. Wish I had that kind of talent.

  10. Murees, thank you so much for the award! I will endeavour to answer the questions and pass it on ASAP!

  11. Hi, again, Murees, I finally got my answers, questions, and recipients posted. Thanks again.

  12. LD Masterson - You are welcome, but it is okay, take your time. It took me a week to finally post the award.

    Andrea - You are so welcome! But there is no need to rush with answering any of the questions, honestly. It took me a while to get it all organized and up as well. Stephen King truly is a talented man.

    Linda - You are welcome. No need to rush.

    Elizabeth - You are very welcome and I look forward to your answers and new questions.
