Lake St. Louis, MO
A newfound blogging friend, Ann, has given me an award for my blog being Over the Top. (Thanks, Ann! It's my first award, and I intend to make the most of it.) Now, I've always thought that particular idiom meant something like extraordinary, ridiculous, or outrageous. It does, moreover, have its origins in World War I trench warfare terminology. When soldiers were ordered to leave the relative safety of their trenches and venture out into the open, perhaps into harm's way, they were going, literally, Over the Top. It's easy to see that my life experiences have been anything but entrenched with SAM as my partner.
Here are my one-word answers--as required, but not fair!--to The Questions:
Your Cell Phone? Ancient.
Your Hair? Graying.
Your Mother? Efficient.
Your Father? Missed.
Your Favorite Food? Mom's.
Your Dream Last Night? Forgotten.
Your Favorite Drink? Wine.
Your Dream/Goal? Teaching.
What Room Are You In? Living.
Your Hobby? Gardening.
Your Fear? Heights.
Where Do You See Yourself In Six Years? Classroom.
Where Were You Last Night? Here.
Something That You Aren't? Male.

As instructed, I give this award to five, fine people who might like this sort of thing. I didn't think I would at first, but I've changed my mind. Hey, I'm not male, remember?
Note: Just because I didn't list more than five people doesn't mean that any one of you blogger friends out there is undeserving of this award. Julie gave the award as a warm blanket to all of her friends, which is something I'm also doing right now. So, please feel free to grab the award and participate! I hope you do...
