Enjoyed reading your answers. I am also (obviously) a summer person, love sappy movies and don't like scary movies, fruits are one of my favorite desserts and I am also wearing a black t-shirt right now :) I didn't know you were born in California or if I did, I forgot.

Marta's Reply - I'm not certain if you knew or not. I think we've only discussed both of us living in the PNW.

Thanks, Marta
My answers are on my blog today.

Kim [TypeKey Profile Page]:

Funny, you've started a trend. What amazes me, of the four of us who have done this, how similar many of our answers are!

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Happy New Year Marta! I haven't quite figured out how to do the meme yet on my blog, but I did enjoy reading more about you through this meme. It's interesting though how much I already knew through your photos, posts and travel interests ...

Have a good day and thanks so much for sharing a bit of yourself.

Barb Cabot:

Going to try my hand at this one too. Posting in my blog Friday. Thank you.

Teaberry:

Really neat.

BTW, I love the photo at the top of the post. Are they jellyfish?

Marta's reply - It is a photo of Dale Chihuly's glass seaforms. He has a neat exhibit of them in Tacoma.
