If you could interview anyone from your life living or dead, but not a celebrity, who would it be and why?
I know some very interesting people whose stories I love listening to. Some local friends who are a few years older than me. They all have stories to tell about the different jobs they have done, places they have been to and the people they’ve met. I’d also nominate my mum who used to tell us lots of stories about living in Egypt and India when she was a girl, about life in England during WWII and all sorts of other things that I never tired of hearing about.
Mum with her family, I think this was around 1925 or thereabouts. Mum is the curly haired one in the middle.
As a child, did you have a nickname? Did you carry that with you throughout life or was it only in childhood that you used it?
No, I didn’t have a nickname. Some kids who had not heard my unusual name before found it amusing to call me Verandah but I didn’t share their amusement and it didn’t last past the fourth grade as far as I recall.
Give us three words that describe you:
Stubborn, Introverted, Independent
Sneaking into a second movie at the theatre (if you go to a movie house)? Is that wrong or just harmless ‘fun’?
I don’t even know how you do that but it sounds dishonest.
If you had a time machine would you go back to the past or forward into the future? Why?
I already went back. See?
I’m grateful for having ten days off from the Op Shop over Easter and ANZAC day to recharge my batteries.
