Who was the last person you talked to on the phone?

My father. It was about a secret recipe for attracting fish on bait on a fishing line. He’s 84.

Who was the last person you hugged?

My husband this morning.

What was the last thing you ate?

Ham and eggs this morning for breakfast.

What was the last book you read?

I reread Harry Potter.

What was the last movie you saw?

“Shawshank Redemption.” Shawshank Redemption is number 1.

What is the last movie you saw in theaters?

I haven’t seen a movie in theaters since the last Star Wars movie. I haven’t been.

What was the last concert you went to?

Jimmy Buffett concert.

What is the last show you watched?

Do the Olympics count? I have been watching the Olympics every single night. I love the Olympics. I am so into them.

Where was the last place you traveled to?

Oregon in July. I am actually from the state of Oregon. I moved here a year ago. I am an Oregon State Beaver! My husband [Mr. Bob Seppa] and I were high school’s sweethearts and in college. Then we moved to Imperial, Illinois; Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, Milwaukee, Wisconsin and St. Louis, Missouri should be our last stop for about 10 years. My husband works at Fabick Tractor in Fenton, a Caterpillar tractor dealer. They merged with the dealer in Wisconsin that he worked for so we volunteered to move to Missouri. We grew up in a small town and wanted to see different parts of the country, and so I think we were not only willing to move but also open to new cultures.”

When was the last time you left the country?

When my daughter (I have two children: Zack and Kelsey) was in college she was doing a semester abroad, and we went to visit her in Barcelona, Spain. It was really cool. I have also been to Malaysia. I was an AFS student in high school, a foreign exchange student. Though that was a long time ago.
