Q: What is one reason you are #ProudlyDekalb?
A: DeKalb has many of the amenities of a larger city (public transportation, entertainment venues, sporting events, etc.) but is able to maintain a small town community atmosphere.
Q.If you were sent to live on a space station for three months and only allowed to bring three personal items with you, what would they be?
A: I would bring my laptop, sewing machine, and guitar. My laptop because I could read books, watch movies and TV shows, listen to music, work on genealogy, and video chat with people back on Earth; my sewing machine to make quilts; and my guitar to play.
Q: If you had a time machine that would work only once, what point in the future or in history would you visit?
A: I would visit 1840 Caldwell/Crittenden County Kentucky. I am stuck on a few of the genealogical lines from my dad’s side of the family and would be able to talk to them and ask them the questions to which I can’t find answers.
Q: What is your favorite line from a film or television show?
A: At the spa in the Hershey Hotel in Hershey Pennsylvania having a chocolate escape treatment
A: Either “People don't drink the sand because they're thirsty. They drink the sand because they don't know the difference.” from The American President" or “Hold that hog leg” from McClintock
Q: If money were no object, how would you spend your birthday?
Q: Describe your outlook on life in six words
A: Live well, laugh often, love much!
Q: What is your favorite way to spend time off from work?
A: With family and friends; trapshooting; or alone time reading, quilting, or working on genealogy.
Q: What is one of your favorite places to eat in DeKalb and why?
A: Twins Tavern for their pot roast sandwich.
