Q: Do you have any pets? 

A: Yellow Labrador named Musial because Labradors are the greatest of them all! Named after the greatest St. Louis Cardinals’ baseball player ever, Stan Musial. She is very gentle and instinctive. With no formal training, she is one of the most well-mannered dogs EVER.

Q: What's a place you haven't traveled to yet but want to, and why?

A: England. I have been a Royal watcher for two generations now. Perhaps it is because of the Queen of England is named Elizabeth? Perhaps because of a semester of English literature in college? Who knows? I have always wanted to go there to see up-close-and-personal that which I have only seen from afar.

Q: If you could have dinner with three famous people, past or present, who would they be?

A: 1) Perhaps not famous, but my maternal Grandmother who passed away a year and half before I was born. I am told I look exactly like her and have speech patterns like her. My Mom tells me she was the quintessential grandmother. We would have baked and done crafts together.

2) The Dalai Lama. I am fascinated by the Mind/Body connection and the teaching of values that cultivate warm-heartedness, compassion, forgiveness, tolerance, contentment and self-discipline.

3) Stan Musial. He was and amazing baseball player and just an all-around good guy.

Q: What's a skill or talent that you'd love to master? 

A: Playing piano. While I have tried, over the years, I have learned that my only musical ability is to listen to it.

Q: Do you have any pets? 

A: I have 2 cats (Finn and Buster) and a dog, Maddie. Both cats are orange tabby’s. Buster is 16 years old and an old curmudgeon – he’s always crabby and he technically belongs to my sister. Finn is the cute, sweet one that likes to cuddle; he just turned 7, and he technically belongs to my niece Piper. When my sister got married a few years ago, her husband also had 2 cats, and no one felt like it was a good idea to merge all of them into one household so they stayed here. Maddie is 5 (she’s a mutt) and is somehow both hyper and one of the laziest dogs ever at the same time.

A: Walt Disney, because…well, I love all things Disney . George Lucas because Star Wars – I’d love to know how he came up with such a detailed story and world. My third one is fictional – Dr. Who…so many questions I don’t even know where I’d begin.

Q: What's a skill or talent that you'd love to master? 

A: Probably making French pastries – the ones that are super technical. I can bake cookies, cakes, etc., but when I try to make something really technical like French macarons (for example), they just don’t come out right.

Q: What's your favorite thing to do to in your free time?

A: When I’m not spending time with my niece and nephew, I love to read and bake.
