Quoting jaytee:

 Is there a story behind your screen name?

Yep.  When I was in 8th grade, the show "Laugh-In" was popular.  (Yes, I'm showing my age.)  One of the skits involved the Farkel family.  We all started calling each other <first name> Farkel. 

In my family, nobody had girls....only boys.  And my grandmother was a twin, her twin sister had twins, so I was supposed to be twin boys.  My parents said they were going to name me Amos and Andy.  (Soooo original, blech.)

After I told that to some 8th grade friends, I became Amos.  Add the Farkel part.  I spelled it wrong when choosing a S/N, thus it was Farkle.

I still get called Amos Farkle at reunions or when I see certain old friends in public.  That's fine.  I answer to it.  LOL

 favorite color?

Blue.  But I'm getting a little tired of every room in my house being blue.

Quoting jaytee:

 Are you married?

Happily divorced.  But I was married to my high school sweetheart for over 25 yrs. and have been in a relationship since about a year after divorce.  Not getting married (although I've been asked and wear a diamond ring) because of finances.  He has no insurance.  We both have credit card debt.  If something dire happened that ran up a huge medical bill, they can take what he owns but they can't touch mine.  Plus, my ex made a lot more than I did and when I get SS, I can claim off his income level, having been married for so long.  I live in sin.  LOL (Believe me, there's not much of that kind of sinning going on around here....)

 What's the best vacation you've ever taken?

Toss up between about 3:

Destin, FL, lots of snorkling in clear water, swimming with dolphins.

Newport, RI, bicycling around all of the mansions (called summer homes) and visiting the Kennedy summer White House (Jackie's parents' home)

Asbury Park, NJ for the opening of Bruce Springsteen's "The Rising", and being in the background on The Today Show.

Either walking (used to be running) or driving.  Anything to get out of the house.

I play guitar and write songs.  I love to read and cook.  And garden, but now that's more like patio gardening.

Quoting Family4Eternity:

What are your regrets if you have any ?

IF????   lol   That I didn't figure out how to make my ex be cordial when we split.  And that I found new love a little too soon.
