Five Questions Friday Swap

Today, Mr. Basketmaker decided to ask moi, the basketmaker’s wife, Friday’s questions.

QWhat was your most memorable place we visited on Nantucket?
Lynne: Well, my most favorite had to be visiting “Greater Light.” I loved everything about the space that these two Quaker sisters, Hanna and Gertrude (which happens to be my grandmother’s name), created back in the 1930’s  from an old livestock barn. It became their summer home and art studio. And they filled it with their loved-items from around the world, including scrap yards!

One of their scrapyard finds were these two 12-foot grates that lead out to their back yard.

In the sitting room was a large flat-screen on the wall that was all touch screen. So you were able to learn the history about the house, or specific rooms or individual art-pieces throughout the house.

I loved bouncing back and forth between the different rooms to learn the history or thoughts the sisters had in creating the decor in that room.

You could also select individual pieces, like this coat of arms piece in the main gathering room.

I love their eclectic tastes and how much energy this room has. Most probably see clutter, but I see exquisite artistic beauty! The room doesn’t look like this now so I was glad to see that they had a picture of what it looked like when the sisters lived there. I had to snap a quick pic. I want to replicate their entire main room, here in our place!

I can go on and on about this house. I even bought the last book the Museum had for sale about the two sisters. But I will spare everyone! Back to my questions…

Q: What was the first thing you did when we came home from our long trip?
Lynne: That’s easy – I kissed the ground, thanking God that we arrived home safely after being on the road for three weeks.

Q: We just finished our third week of fantasy football. Whose advice do you value more? Mine or your brother’s?
Lynne: Well, since my brother does not own a team in our league and you not only have a team, but you are the Commissioner who may have ulterior motives in his counsel, I would have to say my brother. Sorry.

Q: If I told you Fall has started, would you believe me?
Lynne: Uh, no. 

QWhat aggravated you this week?
Lynne: You mean you want me to publicly tell everyone how you messed up my fantasy football team this week???

  1. Yes, Tripp I give you the utmost respect for your Brady Gaga achievements. Don’t you find it somewhat ironic that you have won the league that I founded and I have won the league that you have founded? When you are the one in charge of a league, your team isn’t your top priority. However, I actually won a championship with a physical activity involved, that’s why they call it a sport. The Lime Grove Invitational Shuffle board Tournament. It’s not pretend football, it’s a skill.

  2. Don’t forget that I’m a former champ and my fantasy football acumen is much better than Eric’s (Eli manning not included). Also, how could I not give my wonderfully supportive, smart and talented older sister the best advice I could possibly think of when it comes to fantasy football? Go Cookie Crumblers!! And don’t forget to change that password!!
