By Jeff Gilliland

You tend to be a cheery person. How do you always have a smile and ready to go?

I really enjoy my job and the people at the senior center. The people in my life make me smile too.

What is your favorite book, and what makes it your favorite?

I enjoy nonfiction books. I like reading about American history. I don’t have one particular book that is my favorite.

If you could visit any place in the world, where would you visit and why?

I think it would be neat to visit the countryside in Ireland.

Who in your life has been an inspiration to you?

I would say my parents have been an inspiration to me. I admire their morals and ethics.

What did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was a kid I wanted to be an archaeologist.

What do you like about autumn?

I love the autumn season. When the weather starts to cool down, and the leaves start to turn, there seems to be excitement in the air. All the Fall festivals start with yummy fair foods. You get to go to the pumpkin patch to pick out pumpkins and fun looking gourds. I love to go on a drive to see all the colorful leaves. Autumn weather is comforting; put on your favorite hoodie and enjoy.
