She was released early from the hospital after a double organ transplant because of the storm. Looks can be deceiving - I've seen stage 4 cancer patients that look perfectly fine.

If you were skydiving, what would you scream as you jumped out of the plane?

I didn't scream anything when I jumped. :)

It's good when it's sautéed in garlic and olive oil.

Can you remember a time when the media wasn't telling you to fear or hate something?

I'll agree with you about some extreme weather, but even that gets a little out of hand with these people.

Remember Shepard Smith with Hurricane Matthew?

No, I don't because I don't watch FOX, but I can tell you that ALL the weather persons are drama queens when there are storms in the offing.

What is the most obvious non-physical trait you picked up from one of your parents?

My lack of patience from my dad and my love for Dixieland Jazz from him, too.

I can't say that the media reporting certain occurrences around the world or the possibility of natural disasters is to cause fear, but to prepare for the possible consequences of those happenings. Would it have been better for the media not to have reported on Hurricane Irma (or any other hurricane for that matter)? A lot of lives were likely saved by the media reporting the dire nature of that hurricane and the need for people to evacuate. I think the level to which people take that information and make it a fear is within the person themselves. If you want to be Chicken Little and imagine the sky is falling, you have that right.

LOL ... that reminds me of one of my nieces when she was about 4. We would be playing dolls, we would be moms taking our "children" out to play. She would say, "you say this, and I'll say that, and then you say this, and I'll say that." Before you knew it, the conversation was over.

I love being able to get up when I want, go where I want and do what I want, but I also enjoy going to work and being around people. Knowing that I can stop working whenever I want is liberating. To be honest, having had to take care of only myself, I've not had to scrimp at all. I've been able to do what I want, travel wherever I want, etc. and still save.

I took early retirement and life has never been rosier. The peace of mind knowing that money (the lack of) won't be an issue sure helps

If you have something that you want to do in retirement, that's great. I've done most of what I wanted to do and now that many friends have either passed away or moved away, and my sisters are still working, there's no one to pal around with. So, for me, continuing to work part-time gives me a reason to get dressed at least three days a week, plus it adds to income and I can still contribute to my 401(k) without having to take anything out yet.

LOL ... sorry about that. There are a lot of people like me who, even though they are way beyond retirement age, would like to keep working, even if it's part time. For me, it's less a financial reason than keeping my head in the game and my job is pretty easy these days.

When do you know it is time you should see a doctor?

If I'm bleeding profusely or I can't stop it, the doctor is a good idea. If it isn't life threatening, I try to wait a couple of weeks to see if it resolves itself. If not, I make a doctor appointment.

If my old flip phone ever goes, I don't know what I'm going to do. Sometimes, too much technology is stultifying.

I only drink two cups in the morning, so I don't have to worry about it later in the day. :)

LOL ... now you know why I don't have a smart phone. My coffee maker doesn't have a timer, but I set it up the night before and as I head to the front door to pick up the paper, I turn it on. By the time I finish washing up and brushing my teeth, coffee is ready.
