Tag! I'm It!

Marcia Mickelson tagged me, so here's my contribution.

If I tagged you, remove the blog from the top, move all the blogs up one, and add yourself to the bottom. You have to copy and paste the whole thing into a Word document (or whatever) and use it as a template for your own version.

Here are my responses.

What were you doing ten years ago?
We were preparing to attend a mega family reunion. Four of the siblings would caravan from the west to Missouri. There we took in the LDS sites, then met other members of my family in Ohio. In Greater Cleveland, over 100 cousins descending from a common ancestor couple saw sites with paternal side family history significance. Then we all went to western New York State to commemorate the maternal side of the couple. After attending the Hill Cumorah Pageant, we split up to go home. Our own family went to Pittsburgh to visit my husband’s side of the family. We swung down through Washington DC, then visited my sons’ mission fields on the way home. A couple of months after we got home, my husband was diagnosed with an aggressive terminal cancer. I was glad we had made the trip.

What were you doing one year ago?
I was recuperating from weeks of rehearsals for and four performances of the melodrama put on by my church. I played the ingénue, that is, the young female lead, at the age of sixty, complete with a hoop skirt and a bow in my blonde wig. What fun I had!
