My friend The Bug has given me a reader appreciation award! And since I appreciate being appreciated I’m answering the questions & passing it on. Thanks Buggles!!
Where do you do most of your writing/blogging?

I write at my desk, in front of a computer. Sometimes I actually journal in long hand in a notebook or journal. It's really been a while since I did that, though.
What books were your childhood favorites? 
I loved The Witch of Blackbird Pond, Pippy Longstocking, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Encyclopaedia Brown, and just about anything else I could get my hands on. I read a lot when I was a young'un. 
Who is your favorite fictional character? 
Wow, that question caught me off guard. In terms of books I reached into the Mitford series to name my most beloved dog, Dooley. He was named for a impish kid named Dooley Barlow. How impish? Well, how can you not love a kid who emerges from the parish bathroom and announces, "There's corn in my poop!" Kind of endeared me to him forever.  The entire ensemble cast of The West Wing is right up there, too.
What is your favorite time of day and why? 
I have two favorites. One is first thing in the morning when I get up and get my coffee and surf the net (as in facebook, Pinterest, news and a daily dose of sudoku). The other is a more "physical" time of day, which is late afternoon when the shadows are long and the sun kisses everything with a lovely golden yellow. Love. That. Time. of. Day.
Have you ever Googled yourself and been surprised at what you’ve found? 
Yes, and no.
Who would play you in a movie of your life?
That would be Allison Janney, who became known to me when she played the indefatigable Director of Communications for Jed Bartlett on The West Wing. She's tall, like me, and I used to be thin. You see the resemblance, don't you?
Wanna play? There aren't many people who follow this blog any more, so I am going to let you self-select, if you don't mind. I know I always find it helpful to have prompts offered to me. Have at it, friends!

I loved "The Witch of Blackbird Pond"!! I have not thought about that book in years. I also read everything I could find when I was a child. We had "The Encyclopedia of Knowledge" and I read every single one. I was one of those freaky kids that read after "lights out" by sitting up in bed, leaning near the window and reading with the light coming from the neighbor's dusk to dawn light.

I LOVED reading Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, but then I would probably like cabbage soup :-) YES to Allison Janney! I also happen to love you, dear friend. You made me cry, in a very good way, with your comment on my blog. I'm sorry blogging ain't what it used to be, but I do not regret, not for one second, the path that led me to you. We are friends...we will always be friends. It's out of our hands, now, don't you think? Grace and peace and so much love to you and yours!

Just hopped over from the Bugs place. I am really bad at visiting new bloggers (to me) so this gave me an opportunity to say "Hello" Great answers. I have tried written journals at times and find that I can no longer write properly. It's scary! My mind does not register with my hands or something...because I misspell words something awful. I need to practice more....

I forgot about Pippi! She always made me think of what my mom would have been like as a girl - ha!

Definitely yes to Allison Janney. Perfect!
