1. Can't wait to hear your take on the Toronto winter. How do you think you will do?
2. What made you decide to live in Toronto? ( hubby's fav city in the world)
3. What would I like most about Toronto?
4. In retirement what do you do daily to keep life enjoyable? ( remember this question comes from a workaholic
5. Do you play tennis?
6. If you do how well do you play?
7. What is your idea of the perfect date?
8. Do you have a favorite real life story you'd care to share?
9. Do you belong to a political party? If so which one? And do you vote in every election?
10. Do you have a favorite state in the USA you'd like to visit again? Why? And what state have you never been in but want to see one day?
1. Just fine. I am downtown, on the lake shore, a couple of blocks from all of underground Toronto.
2.Had to recover my Canadian residency. I did post-grad in Toronto, so was already familiar with the city. Sometime this year I will check out Vancouver.
3.Almost everything is downtown and it is safe to walk all night. A car is not necessary, would be an expensive liability.
4. I enjoy a morning newspaper on my doorstep for the first time in 35 years. Sometimes I am not finished until afternoon. I have a gym in my building and I play tennis at a club with a winter ''bubble'' on the courts. I have lots of movies to catch up on via DVD. I am near a great market, St. Lawrence. I like just looking at all the high quality meat, cheese and seafood that I did without in other countries.
6. Good for my age, I think. I can still beat the young guys who follow the Agassi creed that style is everything or something like that and look very stylish as they double fault. For me, a heavily sliced backhand that bounces into the opponent's belly rather than onto his waiting racquet, floats my boat. (Santoro is my idol.) Main problem now is mobility.
7. Best possible dinner and maybe theatre. Assuming you don't mean the ideal date partner! If she is more interested in how ''cool'' the restaurant is rather than how good the food is, there wouldn't be a second date.
8. On the barrier reef one day we were pinned against the reef by an enormous whale shark, that came in so close that it was looking at us with one big eye. It stayed about five minutes until one of us could not resist leaving the reef and stroking a fin, at which point it slowly swam off. About the only reason I can think of to use the word awesome without exaggerating.
On another dive the shark feeding got out of control and a ball of excited sharks rolled through our lookout spot, knocking us about.
Once in a lifetime dive adventures are my favourite memories.
9. I don't belong to a party and have never even voted, because I have been abroad.
10. I love California and in a month or two I will do the coastal drive from SF to LA. Never did that before.
I was in Salt Lake City, but haven't seen the rock formations of the state, such as Bryce Canyon. Something I must do.
