My first kiss: seventh grade on the back of a school bus - sooo not romantic :(
Favorite children's book: I loved Pokey the Puppy. I always wanted a dog like him.
Favorite character from a novel: Melanie from Gone With the Wind. She was pure goodness!
Quote that motivates me: Success is the best revenge. (I consider being happy a great success.)
1) My children to be happy.
2) For my husband and I to retire together and travel.
3) For people to be kind to one another.
The one song I would want on my iPod if on a deserted island: can't pick one song for my island living. But I would love to listen to the Eagles while I'm sippin' on my fruity drink!
Also, the book I'd take on the island: To Kill A Mockingbird
Favorite game as a child: I loved playing Chinese checkers. My mom taught me. My siblings and I would put on our pajamas and play a few games before we went to bed. That was many, many years ago, and the thought brings tears to my eyes.
