CRC's Interview of Yours Truly

Chief Rock Chef tagged me with interview questions. It is always interesting to see what people want to know! I really enjoy this kind of thing because 1) I like to share, and 2) I don't have to think of a subject to write about!

1. The earliest thing I can remember is being in a pushchair and falling out if it into the road. What is your earliest memory?

My earliest memory is when I was three or four years old. It was a summer day and I remember sitting at the table eating Rasin Bran cereal while my mom brushed my hair. I never really liked that cereal (still don't) and was just picking out the rasins. A few strands of hair fell into the bowl so mom let me leave the bowl unfinished. Mom also reached into the cereal box and gave me the "prize" from inside. It was a sticker of Mr. Sun (the Two-Scoops cartoon sun character). I ran outside and put the sticker onto my new tricycle.

2. I suspect that you get some rather unpleasant weather where you live. Have you ever thought of trying to escape from it, moving to somewhere else?

Actually, the weather here isn't as bad as many believe! When I lived in Illinois, we would get more snow and ice storms than we get here. Sure, it does get cold sometimes but it doesn't last very long. As for leaving? I couldn't stay away for long. When I retire, I may travel to warmer areas during the coldest part of winter, but my home will always be Montana.

3. When you worked at the radio station did you get to rub shoulders with any famous, or almost famous, people?

Yes. Famous to me, anyway. My two favorites were: Meeting (and getting a photo together) the lead singer of Cinderella (an 80's rock band) and going back stage to meet the band 7-Mary-3. I met many local celeb's, too. The govenor of Montana, Brian Schweitzer (many times) and many local bands among them.

4. The eagle that you featured a while ago is wonderful. What other wildlife do you get to see where you are?

In the wild I have seen bears (black and Grizzly), Moose, Big Horn Sheep, Mountain Goats, Elk, Wolves, Coyotes, Marmots, Skunks, Beaver, tons and tons of Deer, and tiny rodents like mice, Chipmunks, and Squirrles. There are SO many different types of birds, too. Eagles, Osprey, Hawks, Jays, Magpies, Pelicans, Blue Herons, Seagulls (even though we are not near the sea!), Doves, Pidgeons, Robins, Starlings, Bluebirds, Chic-a-dees, and many, many others I don't know the names of. The Rocky Mountain West is a photographers paradise with all the wild life!

5. (Stolen from Ali because I love this question). If you could have one super-power what would it be? What would your super-hero name be?

This is a hard one! I think I would want the ablility to fly. Yeah, I know CRC said the same thing, but it would be SO awesome to just fly to anywhere I wanted, at anytime. Saving drowning people, or finding lost hikers would be a breeze (as well as many other situations). On my own time, I would be able to fly into a private lake high up in Glacier Park that is impossible to hike to. As for a super-hero name? The Raptor (after many types of beautiful, graceful hunting birds).

There ya go. This was fun! Now, the rules state I need to interview someone else. If anyone wants me to ask them a few questions, let me know. Otherwise I get to pick! LOL

Fantastic answers! Thanks for taking the time to do this.

That is a great first memory - much nicer than headbutting tarmac!

I have heard of Cinderella but don't think I know any of their stuff. What a cool job!
