Welcome to the eighth In My Opinion!! Did you answer the questions? I hope so!

Here are the questions for this week:

1. One of mom’s traits I admired is/was …

2. I remember getting into trouble with my parents on this occasion.

3. Are you more of a rule keeper, or a rule breaker? Why?

(RSS readers – I don’t think Vimeo videos show up in readers. Please click over to my site to see the video. Sorry about that!)

I had too much fun taping this and I hope you had fun watching it; I also hope my children/grandchildren treasure it someday. Because really, that’s what In My Opinion is all about – leaving a bit of you behind.

Ready for next week’s questions? Brace yourself …

April 29th Questions

1. One of dad’s traits I admired is/was …

2. A question about your significant other: Long before you met, what did you picture your future mate would be like?
