Number one thing on my bucket list: I long to live in Scotland so I can work on perfecting my Haggis recipe. Yum!
 
Favorite cupcake: Raspberry filled chocolate….or maybe vanilla…strawberry isn’t bad…or peanut butter…wait a minute, lemon…don’t forget the cream cheese frosting. 
 
Most embarrassing moment: Building a set during college and not realizing there was an open can of paint on a 20ft ladder I was moving…They are still cleaning up paint to this day!

A hidden talent: Liturgical dance. I like to incorporate tap shoes. The Pastor has requested that I keep this particular talent hidden. 
 
Favorite cupcake: The only reason I eat cupcakes is for the frosting. Apparently, it is socially unacceptable to walk around with a can of frosting and a spoon. 
 
First car: A 1975 Dodge Colt, yellow with black stripes. It made me feel like a really sporty bumble bee.

#1 thing on my bucket list: Visiting 20th century England via time travel.  Okay, I’ll settle for a 21st century tour, but I’d really prefer spending a week in Downton Abbey then checking in with my favorite vicar, Sydney Chambers, who lives in 1950’s Grantchester. 
 
Favorite cupcake:  So many flavors, so little time!  I don’t play favorites with cupcakes.
 
Hidden talent: Rollerskating in a buffalo herd.  Roger Miller seemed to think it couldn’t be done.

First car: 1980 AMC Eagle, dark green. No AC, am & fm radio, 4 wheel drive all the time! You filled the gas tank by flipping down the rear license plate. Loved that old car. 
 
Unknown fact: In college I was in a barbershop quartet that finished 3rd in the world among college quartets. 
 
Hidden talent: I’m very adept at cleaning toilets. 
Coming Soon!

#1 thing on my bucket list:  To get rid of bucket lists.
 
Most embarrassing moment:  When my Mom made me a pair of red, white and blue striped pants that said, “Vote” all over the legs.  I am still being ridiculed!
 
A hidden talent:  I have many hidden talents but prefer that they stay hidden!
 
 
Coming Soon!
