Q. What is your motto or maxim?

A. She, who can make her friends laugh, is blessed.

Q. If you could meet any historical character, who would it be and what would you say to him or her?

A. I'd love to sit down for tea with Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis.  I would ask her all the questions most everyone wants to know about Camelot . . . what it was like to be married to JFK and how she dealt with his infidelity.  I'd ask for 'behind the scenes' details of White House events and incidences like the Cuban Missile Crisis.  And, also, what it was like to raise her two children (seemingly very well) in the spotlight of the entire world.  Finally, I'd ask her all about her love of literature.  Oh - and before she left, I'd inquire about some timeless fashion tips for myself.

Q. If you could eat only one thing for the rest of your days, what would it be?

A. Avocados. I am obsessed with avocados.

Q. What trait is most noticeable about you?

A. I'm very friendly and talk to everyone - especially strangers.

Q. What are your most overused words or phrases?

A. "Seriously?" and "Just sayin'"
