What is your favorite hobby?

My favorite hobby is writing and journaling. I do some freelance writing, and I still enjoy writing letters and notes to friends. Journaling is very healing and good for the soul.

What do you love most about Scioto County?

I love the natural beauty of Scioto County — especially the river and the hills. I’ve seen some beautiful places but none compare to the beauty all around us.

What is your favorite song of all time?

My favorite all-time song is “Centerfield” by John Fogerty. I loved it even before I became a baseball fan. Oh yeah — and anything by Bruce Springsteen.

What is your best homemade dish?

If you ask my grandson, he’d tell you my best homemade dish is spaghetti but he doesn’t know it’s not homemade. My father-in-law always told me I made the best fried chicken he’d ever tasted.

If you had to choose, Halloween or Thanksgiving?

Between Halloween and Thanksgiving, I’d choose Thanksgiving because of the quality time with family and the great food. It’s a great time to get together with family, some you only see that time of year. It’s also a good time to eat all the things you limit any other time.
