Friday Feast

It's been a few week since I've done one of these. I'm such a crybaby but it's hot again (106) and our overnight low was 80, which broke a record. The photos I had intended to use for a post are on Kodak's site which just happens to be down right now, so feast time it is!

Who is the easiest person for you to talk to? Most things, my husband; girlie things, my cousin.
If you could live in any ancient city during the height of the quality of its society and culture, which one would you choose? I love history and have often thought about this question but then I think about the lack of sanitation and deodorant and my enthusiasm wanes...maybe somewhere in England or Scotland before the Industrial Revolution.
What is the most exciting event you’ve ever witnessed? Definitely the birth of my kids (in the mirror the doctors would tilt so you could witness the actual birth. The husband wasn't allowed in the room! Remember, this was the dark ages!!!) My daughters and their husbands wanted me in the room when my grandchildren were born, and since I wasn't all drugged-up, it was even more exciting!
Main Course:
If you were a celebrity, what would you do for a publicity stunt? This would go down in tabloid history: I would be caught in public reading a book!
What do you consider the ideal age to have a first child? Certainly not 18 like I was! My brother and his wife were in their thirties. They had more patience, understanding and nurturing skills at that age.

Here's the link to other Friday Feast participants.

I agree with your dessert, I was 30 when I became a mother and that was very nice because all my friends complained that they had been too young.

I was in my early 20's when my kids were born, but I out knocked out. I enjoyed having my kids while I was young. I can't imagine going to PTA meetings while in my 50's. Now I'm still young enough to enjoy my grandchildren.
