12 things……

okay, I admit it. I swiped these from Judy Dykstra Brown‘s page…yes I did and I am not ashamed either! They are darned good questions and I wanted to answer them.

Twelve Things I Would Most Like to Know About You

Who in your opinion is the sexiest man who ever lived?

wow..there are two that for me are tied…either one. Omar Sharif or Sean Connery. To me, they both epitomize the perfect man….well, physically at any rate.

Lawrence of Arabia



What favorite food do you rarely eat and why? 

cheesecake…it’s too danged full of cholesterol. dammit!

What would your closest friends be most surprised to find out about you?

nothing. my closest friends know me.

Who is the most famous person you ever met and what were the circumstances?

There were about fifteen at my cousin’s post production/new year’s party. John Wayne and his wife, Robin Williams, Billy Crystal, Logan Ramsey and wife Anne Ramsey (my cousin and his wife), Jane Curtin, Gilda Radner, David Janssen, Larry Gebhart….and others I can no longer remember. I have to say, John  Wayne was a consummate ASS!

What famous person would you most like to have as a close friend and why?

Honestly?  No one. I wouldn’t want the hassle of their fame following me or interfering with whatever it is I want to do.

What is your biggest regret in life?

I have no regrets.

What is the strangest pet you ever had?

Guinea Pigs

What is the item of clothing you have owned for the longest period of time?

a kimono that my father brought back from the orient in the 1960’s.

What object in your house holds the most nostalgic value for you?

my stuffed elephant.

What question do you wish you had asked a deceased relative but didn’t?

I wish I had asked my 2nd cousin, Rear Admiral Logan Ramsey, SR about his WWII experiences, both in Pearl Harbor and at Midway.

Who in the world (relative or not) do you most resemble? 

When I was younger it was Sally Field. Now, it is more the queen of England! lol

What is your favorite footwear?

Nothing at all…………….

  3. The questions were there for the stealing..Six to go and I’ll pay the piper. I put your name in the drawing. Do I get to ask questions? What did John Wayne do to qualify as an ass and what is the significance of the stuffed elephant? That’s to make up for your dodging the regrets question! Thanks for playing along.

    1. John Wayne was attending a party that I was attending at my cousins home in Van Nuys, California. He grabbed every woman’s nether regions, smirked at them and gave a number as to which was a “better ass”. It was beyond insulting. Then he spent the rest of the evening embarrassing his poor wife by telling her everyone else’s “ass” was so much better than her’s. The elephant was given me by my paternal grandmother on the day I was born. She made a special trip to California from Washington DC just to get a stuffed animal from Disneyland to give to me in the month before my birth. I still have that silly elephant. It went to college with me, it was at my wedding (yes, my husband is that sweet to put up with it) and has been with me at each birth of my children.


      1. Ah. One sweet story and one repulsive one. Here is my John Wayne story: https://judydykstrabrown.com/?s=john+Wayne
