1. Growing up, were you close to your grandparents? My maternal grandfather died in Persia before my babushka immigrated to the U.S.A. I was closer to my little maternal babushka. We visited my paternal grandparents regularly and honored them but never were as close to them as to my little babushka.
Tell us one or two specific things you remember about them.
Me and my little babushka on my wedding day. She was a believer and prayed for me all her days and tried to teach me to embroider. She embroidered with one hand because she lost one hand up to her elbow when she was young.
2. What’s an item you were attached to as a child? What happened to it?
I have not one item from my childhood that I’m attached to, in fact I have not one item from my childhood.
3. When you look out your window, do you see the forest or the trees (literally and figuratively)? Explain.
Out my current windows I see trees but no forest. I see houses no big views.
4. Do you like sour candies?
I enjoy Mike and Ikes.
Which of the ‘sour’ foods listed below would you say is your favorite?
grapefruit, Greek yogurt, tart cherries, lemons, limes, sauerkraut, buttermilk, or kumquats
Have you ever eaten a kumquat?
Yes, I have. Growing up in Southern California our relatives had kumquat trees and we’d enjoy them fresh off the tree. It’s fun getting past the sour skin to the inner sweetness.
5. July 1st marked the mid point of 2017. In fifteen words or less, tell us how it’s going so far.
Becoming grandparents and watching our granddaughter grow makes 2017 a stand out year.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
Summer is great but it’s not my favorite season.
