Tell us about your first bicycle or car? My first bike, the one pictured above, was inherited from my sister, complete with training wheels. By the time this photo was taken, the training wheels were far in the past and I had about outgrown it. Christmas brought a brand new Hiawatha girl’s bike— beige with rust detailing. My most lengthy adventure on that Hiawatha involved a ride to the North Dam with my friends with a picnic lunch in our bike baskets. I also remember riding it on the two-lane highway to White River, pulling off onto the gravel shoulder whenever we heard a car coming up behind us. It was a different world!
What fictional world or place would you like to visit? I would love to visit a different friendly planet if I could get there quickly and return to earth quickly as soon as I wished to.
If you could have someone follow you around all the time, like a personal assistant, what would you have them do? Organize all my files, then compile stories and poems into books and attend to all of the publication details. Heaven. When they were finished with that task, they could organize all my photos and convert all my slides to computer images. I have the machine to do so, but not the time.
