Getting To Know Me

I was reading John's post at 'Going Gently' (click) the other day
and he was answering a 'questionnaire' which he found online.
I learned a few things about him that I hadn't known before.

Maybe there is something here that you learn about me.

1. If there's one chocolate left in the box, do you have to eat it, or can you leave it sitting there?
I have to eat it!

2. What do you want to remember most of all, if you survive to be very old?
My name!

3. Would you enjoy being a very rich and famous celebrity?
Not at all. I love my privacy.

4. What piece of music do you personally find most emotionally moving?
Most of Erik Satie's pieces.

5.  How do you deal with depression, anxiety and bad times?
I have learned to look at them straight in the face 
and not run from them. Life can be difficult at times
and facing these times works for me.

6. What do you love doing that bores everyone else stiff?
Going to auctions and thrift shops.

7. Did you ever encounter an inanimate object that seemed to have a will of its own?
Sometimes, in winter,  my car will do what it wants and I can't do anything
to change its 'mind'!

8. What is your very favourite hotel or restaurant?
It would have to be Celtic Lodge in Ingonish, Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.

9. Do you think prisoners who have committed particularly vile crimes should be segregated in jail for their own safety?
Yes I do. As much as they have committed vile acts on other people
they are still human beings.

10. What do you wish you had known when you were 18?
I wish I was more insightful and focused on what
I wanted to do with the rest of my life.


  1. I think you are a great man. I loved learning more about you.

    1. I don't know about great Becky, but I know what I like!

  2. Not only would I eat the last chocolate in the box, I'd eat the box.

  3. Replies
    1. I believe you!! O don't mess with 'prairie girls'!! lol

    2. I hear ya, my brother married one!

  4. It's nice to know a little more about you, and of course like everybody I would have eaten the last piece lol

    1. Lorraine, I can see here that there would be a fight for that last morsel!!

  5. I like your answer about what you would like to remember when you are very old!

    1. I don't ask for much, Alain!! lol

  6. This was great, Jim! And yes, yes I would eat the last chocolate. What a silly question :)

  7. I would say the same to most of that, Satie and chocolate for sure. Of course, I have never been to Nova Scotia, so I will have to conjure up that restaurant in my mind.....

    1. We are 'soul mates' for sure, Inger!
      That restaurant/hotel is in such a beautiful location almost to the upper tip of Nova Scotia. We were there for Thanksgiving a few years ago.

  8. Now answer today's blog questions

  9. I'd have to eat that last chocolate too! Beautiful images.

    1. Thanks Pat.
      Oh that 'last chocolate'! always tastes the BEST!

  10. you answered those questions just the way I thought you would. So proud to have you as a friend, to know you from so far away is kinda like eating that last chocolate!

  11. I have to eat the last chocolate, I really can´t resist choc!
    I like thrift shops and auctions too! They are not boring at all, they are great

  12. I enjoyed your answers, particularly that you want to remember your name. The elderly become so frustrated when they can't remember their names.


  13. Getting to know you has been lots of fun, Jim! I thoroughly enjoyed your answers to the questions! That last chocolate in the box wouldn't have a hope in hell with me around! LOL!


Hey, I really like your comments and appreciate the time you took to do so.
