Monday Minute

Has anyone you’ve known personally lived to at least 100?
My paternal Grandfather made it just to 100! He was an amazing man who lived on a farm in Mexico and worked it up until the last 3 years of his life. The only reason he quit, he was thrown from a horse that he was breaking and broke his hip. (Oh yeah, 97 and still breaking horses!I told you he was amazing)

What material possession do you value the most?
Obviously, being that I am my children’s paparazzi it would be photos or rather the external hard drive that my husband has put all of my 90,000 digital photos onto. Also, my Grandmother’s ancient Bulova watch from God knows when back in the day..its just a very dainty white gold watch but it is the only thing I have left of my Grandma Daisy. Oh yeah, and the baby books!

What do you think happens to us after we die?
I think our body goes to the ground or into ashes and our souls  A) go to our version of heaven B) go to our version of hell C) if we still have some kinks to work out..purgatory which I think would have to be reincarnation so that we can try again to do better.Just my personal opinion.

Most embarrassing item in your house?
You’d think I’d say my “toys” but those don’t embarrass me, maybe the crazy rubber and chain getup that my husband thought would be sexxy (?) WTF? It’s pretty ridiculous. NO, the most embarrassing thing would probably be the incredibly ridiculous bathing suit with the cut out sides that my husband convinced me would be a good idea. It’s embarrassing because it looks so tragically hideous on. I think it was mis -sized or made for Kate Moss during her crack days because it sure wasn’t made for a regular sized person. The only thing that would be more embarrassing would be if there were any pictures in existence of me in it.Which there are not and will never be!  od, I broke out in hives just at the thought of that.
 
If you could rename yourself, what would your name be?
I think I like LOLA or ZOE! I think it sounds sexy. With Debi, I always got the “Debbie does Dallas” or “Little Debi” ( talk about extremes).

Very cool to know that our grandfathers lived such fruitful long lives. My paternal grandfather lived to 103. Never smoked, never drank. By the rate I'm going, I'll be lucky to live to 70! lol.
