An invitation to questions

In a blog I recently started reading, the owner recently decided to give a quite detailed introduction of herself. I enjoyed reading it quite a bit. {Smile}

Then I wondered about doing something similar, and realized I didn’t know where to begin… or where to end, or what points to hit in between. {rueful smile}

I know there are a lot of things I don’t talk about. Usually it’s not because I want to keep secrets, but that I don’t realize anyone is interested. {shrug, spread hands, Smile}

I’m not entirely sure how to fix that. So far, all I’ve thought of is offering to answer any questions about me that you might have been wondering about. That’s by no means a perfect fix, since you might not think of some questions at all, but it’s what I’ve thought of so far. {spread hands, Smile}

So… any questions? I'm not likely to get offended, honest. {SMILE}

  1. It took me a little to think of a question, but I finally came up with one: were you born in Hawaii, or did your family move there from somewhere else?

  2. It's kind of both, I guess. {Smile} I was born here in Hilo. So were both Mom and Dad. Dad's parents moved to Hilo from California with their older children a few years before Dad was born. Mom's parents moved here from Honolulu before meeting, courting, marrying, and having children together. Mom's parents' parents moved to Honolulu, one from the mainland US, and three from Portugal's Azores (an island chain the Atlantic) before meeting, marrying, and having children. {Smile}

    So I've lived here all my life so far, but my family has been here shorter than some, and longer than others. {Smile}
