Enquiring Minds Want to Know (6)

Each week Dollycas's Thoughts hosts the meme "Enquiring Minds Want to Know." She posts questions for us to answer each week in order for us bloggers and readers to get to know each other beyond our books.  Check out her's and others answers here.

1.  Do you have a Veteran in your family? (living or in the past)
I do.  My grandfather served in the Korean War, and he often tells the story of his crossing the ocean and eating an entire can of olives with his buddy.  And (of course) they were the only two who didn't get sick.  :)

2.  Where were you born?
I was born in Memphis, hometown of Elvis.  I find it quite funny that that's what everyone associates with Memphis, as I've never been to his house (and I lived there for 20 years).  To me, Memphis is home to family, good BBQ, horrible drivers, awful road-rage, and my long-time friends.

3.  Have you seen an good movies lately, in the theater or on DVD? Recommend one for us to watch.
I find it so ironic that this is a question this week, because I am working on a post about the most recent movie I saw.  Secretariat is a movie I saw with my parents, recommended by friends of theirs.  They said that it was in the same class as Seabiscuit.  And I enjoyed it just as much.  Secretariat is about a one of the all-time best racehorses of all time.  It has Diane Lane (a favorite of mine) in it, who does a wonderful job portraying a strong woman in the late 60s, early 70s.  And I recommend it for all people who love family-type movies.  It's a great, clean, fun movie - especially for those who love horses.
I look forward to hearing everyone else's answers to this week's meme.  Great questions this week.  Hope you guys have a great reading weekend!

  2. Hannah,
    I am so sorry, I just realized while working on this week's post that I was in the middle of leaving you a message the other day, when my kitty started helping me type, lol and I never got to complete my message before he hit a button and lost this page.

    We don't go out to movies much but I have already informed my husband that when Secretariat comes out on DVD is a must buy!!

    Thanks for playing, can't wait to see you again this week at Enquiring Minds.
