I Wanted To Play Tag!

When I visited Shelia at Note Songs she was playing tag and said anyone could play along...so that's what I did - thanks Shelia.  Now...you can do the same thing, if you want.  Just copy and paste this entire thing and delete all of my answers and write
in your own.  It was fun.  Let me know if you're playing, I'd like to see your answers!!

1. Are you named after someone?  As a Catholic girl about to be Confirmed, you select a name (like another middle, middle name!)  I selected Ann, after my Aunt Pat, who was my Confirmation Sponsor.
2. When was the last time you cried?  Yesterday, after saw Benny's Favorite commercial (boy did he love his commercials!)  Benny is our Pup who died in December, 2013 at the age of only 4 1/2 years. 
 3. Do you have kiddos?  Yes, 2 sons.  44 & 43.  They live in Wisconsin where I'm from.
 4. If you were another person, would you be a friend of yourself?  Of course.  What kind of a person would I be, if I said NO?
 5. Do you have a guilty pleasure?   Pearson's Salted Nut Roll (peanuts)
 6. Do you like handwriting?   Yes.  I love writing.  I use lots of flourishes when I write and it is very pretty.  My signature is illegible.  After years in sales (car and insurance), having to sign time after time after time, I developed a scribble signature!
7. What's your favorite cereal?  I really don't eat cereal much at all.  I'll eat a bowl of long cooking oatmeal.  I'll also eat Cocoa Wheats, another cooked cereal.
8. What's the first thing you notice about people?   Their eyes.  I have the gift of discernment and often times, I'll get a sense of the person just looking into their eyes.

9. What's the color of your eyes?  Brown - the same color that my dad had.
10. Scary movie or happy endings?  Happy endings, when I'm home alone.  Otherwise, I love a good scary movie.
11. Favorite TV shows?   Longmire, Property Brothers, Ina Garten's Cooking Show
12. Summer or Winter?  I like Summer, because that's when my Flowers Grow...but I also like Winter, because, quite obviously, it isn't as hot as summer!  LOL!
13. Hugs or kisses?  Both!
14. Do you have any special talent?   At age 5, I began playing accordion...played to age 13...then played several instruments through high school.  I was even on Candid Camera as a Senior in high school, playing the theme song on a Glockenspiel at the end of the skit we performed.
