That's way cool, Beth. There were many players who lost all, or a good part of their careers due to war service.

My favorite part of the spring season is weekends like the one we just enjoyed. Temperatures in the mid-60s after frigid winters spent inside mean long walks outside, with the dog picking up lost scents in the grass. Good times.

Grilling is a key component of the season, too. What's your favorite meal to cook up on the barbeque grill?

Kofta kebab and grilled veggies, preferably for the same meal. Yum! Already dreaming about it.

What is the most exotic thing you have ever eaten?

I have pretty pedestrian tastes where food is concerned. While maybe not exotic, mettbrötchen is a fairly common breakfast in eastern Germany. It's raw ground pork served on a roll, with chopped onions & pickles on top. I used to eat one or two every morning at work. I'm sure eating raw pork isn't especially wise, but they were tasty & I lived to tell the tale.

My partner hates any ready-to-eat food that comes out of a can. What is your favorite canned food?

Yes, a rather large and perfectly round one on my left side, a little under my armpit. It's only visible when I am wearing a bathing suit, and even then some may not notice. It's more brownish in color than red. Of course I have had it since birth. I have a sick humor nickname for it. Actually, there are a couple people in my extended family (father's side) that also have one. A third cousin has one on his face, but it's luckily not that large or unattractive. I guess they were hereditary.

What is something that you have "grown out of"?

Most of my pants, due to my pandemic weight gain! On a more personal level, however, I think I've outgrown "the need for speed." I used to play with my meds, & use weed & alcohol in excess to maximize "fun." At some point, I started to realize that chaos can be very costly.

If you could isolate a single point in time, what was the most "magic moment" you've ever experienced?

I’ll never forget it. I was 9-10 standing on the border between my cousins yard and a cornfield. It was a dusty summer evening about 5-6 pm and suddenly everything was all right. It was the most content I’ve ever been. I can still see the cornstalks in rows between clumps of black dirt. That feeling only hit me one other time. In college I was at a party on the cliffs overlooking a city. The people faded away and contentment filled me.

What is the most magical feeling you’ve had?

I was with my son in Howth, Ireland. It was a misty day in February and we had climbed up a long flight of very old stone steps to a hilly part of the land. We walked a little ways and found a stream surrounded with flowering bushes and trees. Some of the tree branches were bowed over, touching the water in the gently flowing stream. Everything was greener than green, that truly emerald Ireland green. My son and I took a penny a piece (Euro pennies are so adorably tiny), made wishes, and tossed the pennies in the stream for the fairies to find.

The moment I tossed that penny into that stream, in the mist, surrounded by so much green - magic!

What's your magic moment?

There are many, and they all mostly happened during elated mania. Otherwise, I'm quite grounded when stable. If I must pick, I'll say a moment I spent with a German guy in Bangkok, Thailand. I was flying as high as a kite. Either the moments we were eating banana fritters, or when we walked through a spice market. Absolute sensory bliss!

What are your favorite things to touch or smell?

OK...this is strange. My fingertips are extremely sensitive...& one of my superpowers (not to sound even more egotistical than I normally do!) is my ability to sense what others feel. It's almost like reading braille. For example, I'm always petting the dog; & he naturally gravitates towards me. I can tell when I'm scratching or petting in just the right spot. I pet the dog so much that my partner often tells me to stop because I'll rub the hair right off of him! Not only does the dog appreciate it, but petting the dog is a great source of comfort for me. I'm forever petting the dog -- not even realizing I"m doing it. I've always been that way (& I've had many, many canines over the decades). Petting dogs is one of my favorite activities. Cats, however, are best appreciated in stirfry.

Unless it's traumatic for you, please share in detail your earliest childhood memory.
