I am listening to a nostalgic music channel right now with songs of the 40's and it made me think that perhaps we could discuss some
nostalgia here. I hope you will enjoy thinking about these questions this week. Annie

1. What music were your parents listening to when you were a kid? Does that music bring back memories for you? I really don't recall them listening to a lot of music, but they did take us to several concerts of the southern Gospel Quartet Groups back in the day. And still to this day that is my favorite kind of music, although I love many others too. Mom and Dad actually sang in a quartet at our church and also traveled a bit and sang. As an adult mom took lessons and learned to play the guitar. In my early 20's I actually sang in a quartet too with my brother and 2 cousins. So many fun memories.
2. What was your favorite meal and beverage as a teenager? Chicken and dumplings has always been a favorite and probably Pepsi was the favorite drink. Is it still or have things changed for you? I drink Diet Coke now and yes chicken and dumplings are still a favorite, but I may like Mexican style food even more.
3. As a teen did you live in a city, country, small town? We moved a lot when I was younger. Always in the same county. Mom and Dad remodeled homes all the time. They were in to flipping houses before flipping houses was a thing. We lived in some of those houses and some they just fixed up and sold. Dad also built homes for us. But when he bought the small farm when I was a freshman in high school, they stayed there for like 19 years. So as a teenager I mostly lived on the farm in the country and I loved it. What was it like for you there. At first I shared a room with my two sisters and then dad built on and I shared a room with just one sister and the oldest got to have here own room. Tell us about your hometown please? It's a fairly small city, although there has been a lot of expansion in the 45 years I worked for their Police Department. It's the home of the Golden Lamb which opened in 1803 and has been continuously running ever since. Many presidents and other famous people have stayed there or at least eaten there.

building used to be a theater and I remember
going and watching Disney movies there as a child.

where I have done my banking since I was a
teenager. In fact, my sister worked there 40 some
years and my brother worked there probably 20 or so.

4. Would you like to live in your hometown today? Yes. Why or why not? In fact, I live just about a mile north of that town. And have always lived within a 20-30 mile radius of the city. But some day I think I'd like to sell our home and downsize to a condo within the city limits.
Thanks for visiting and I hope you have a great day.
