1. Do you consider friends an extension of your family?
In my case no. I would have a different answer if I were younger. Having no immediate family makes that question easy to answer.
2. Would you confide in a friend more than you would a family member?
Yes. I would feel more comfortable confiding in a friend. Somehow I feel they would be less judgemental than a family member.
3. How long have you known your best friend?
Approximately 60 years! Since high school. But now only contact is via Facebook and very infrequent visit. We live far apart.
4. Do you believe distance has a negative effect on friendships?
Not in my case.

Do you prefer shopping or going to a park?
–Going to a park by far. I hate, hate, hate, shopping. When my wife finally gets me to shop with her I take a book to read in the car.
If you were a shoe, what kind would you be and why?
What’s the story behind a time when you got locked out?
–We were at a tiny restaurant in small town in Italy when I had to go use the restroom. The waiter handed me a very large key. When I was ready to return to the table I could not get the key to work. I could hear people outside telling me how to use the key but for the life of me it would not work. Finally I emerged after a few minutes to everyone clapping their hands.
Do you prefer eating foods with nuts or no nuts?
