I have been seeing this Interview meme floating around the web. I finally decided to have a go at it, and left a comment for Jessie over at Softly Spoken. She emailed me a list of questions that she developed just for me. That’s one of the things I like about this interview meme, is each one is unique and individual to the blogger being interviewed.
So without further beating around the bush, lets get right down to it. Here are the questions, and my answers.
1. Colorado is beautiful, which landscape and / or season best describes you and why? (Not the "physical" you,but instead the individual under the armor.) It’s interesting that Jessie used that term “Under the armor”, for that is just the way I feel some times. Like I have to keep this coat of armor on to protect myself, and not show those feeble little weaknesses. Well to answer the question, I’m going to chose season, for I think everyone would know I would choose the mountains if it were landscape. I would say that winter best represents me. The safe warm insulating cover of snow that protects all the beauty underneath it, yet letting just enough out to be seen. It’s like it’s own coat of armor. I would say that I keep that covering of snow most times, shoveling or clearing certain paths that are “safe to travel” and therefore open for everyone. But I must say that since I started blogging, I think spring is coming, and has melted away much of that protective covering.
2. It is said that dog owners are a lot like their dogs. Do you find this to be true? Are you more Basset Hound, Chihuahua, or Red Healer? And how so? That’s a good question, I have seen owners that resemble either physically or emotionally their dogs. But I don’t think I do, well maybe just a little. I would have to say I’m more suited to the Red Healer, a worker, herder, keeper of the pack. I like to run and play, but seem to live to work. It does not always mater what work I do, I just have to work. I think it’s something in my genes. I love and care for my other dogs, and cat, but Destiny is the one who I wish would ride with me, and enjoy my day at work. Unfortunately she has to be the only Healer I have ever seen that absolutely hates to ride in vehicles.
3. What are your "junk?" treasures, and how do they symbolize you individually? Ohh, my treasures, Blinda calls them junk, are my 1975 Chevy Blazer, and my 1974 Ford 3/4 ton High Boy. Neither one runs, but I can’t get rid of them. They are so individual to their lines. Both are unique in that the dies were changed at the end of those years. The 75 Blazer is the last year they had the full top that was removable. After that year you could only get a half top. The ford changed its frame that year and went to a wider set of frame rails, High Boys are fairly uncommon. I like to think of myself as unique and individual for my line, LOL Sorry sis (both of you). I am different from all my siblings, but then I suppose that is not all that uncommon. Hopefully they changed the mold after me, for I wouldn’t wish my unique issues on anyone, LOL.
4. What draws you into hunting as a sport? I would have to say Nature in general. Back home I was not that avid of a hunter, going when I could but not very often. When I came down here, it provided me an opportunity to leave the fast paced city behind, and seemingly go back in time to a slower, more basic life. I love getting out in the country, and seeing all the sights, hearing all the sounds, really just taking it all in. I guess I don’t really “sport hunt”, I’m not after that perfect dream buck all the time. If he walks out before I fill my tag , well that's a bonus for me, but that’s not what I’m after. When I do take an animal, it’s for the meat, and for improvement of the deer in our area. It’s more about relaxing in a place that is familiar and comfortable to me.
5. Which sense would devastate you the most if you lost it? That’s an easy one, sight. I have already lost much of my sense of feeling in my hands due to the types of work I have done over the years. Hearing, according to Blinda is well on its way too, again the many different types of work involving some pretty loud noise (with no hearing protection). I could easily stand to lose my sense of smell, except I would miss the fragrance and fine aromas of food while it’s cooking. But sight, I love to read and write so much, and the absolute beauty and serenity of a perfect sunset, to lose that would truly be devastating for me.
As with all meme’s, there are rules that apply. The nice thing about this one is that you don’t “tag” some poor unsuspecting blogger with the duty of completing a set meme. Anyone who wants to take part can, all they have to do is ask. If you wish for me to come up with a set of interview questions for you, just leave me a comment saying “interview me” I ask that you don’t leave your email address in the comment, for privacy reasons. You can email me your request by clicking on the contact me button just under my feed number icon, upper mid right side of my blog.
Leave me a comment saying: interview me.
Comments with e-mail addresses will not be published to preserve privacy.
I will e-mail you five questions. i get to pick the questions.
You can then answer the questions on your blog. I would appreciate a link also.
You should also post these rules along with an offer to interview anyone else who e-mails you wanting to be interviewed.
Anyone who asks to be interviewed should be sent 5 questions to answer on their blog.
To keep this unique, it would be nice if the questions were individualized for each blogger.
