What’s your favourite animal? Hmmm… difficult to say – but I’m going to go with elephants. I had the most incredible experience while in Uganda in 2013. We went to an animal preserve where there was a baby elephant whose name was Charles – I was so thrilled to be able to pet and feed him!

If you could be any cartoon character, who would you be? I would choose to be Piglet, because he is Pooh Bear’s best friend, and I just love Winnie the Pooh!

If you could get free airfare – name a country you would visit? Definitely Israel, it is on my bucket list to go to Jerusalem, and to visit the Wailing Wall and the Mount of Olives. I think that would be a very life-changing and moving experience for me.

When was the last time you fired a gun? Well I can’t name the date and year as I would be dating myself; but it would have been partridge hunting with my Dad in my home town of Kenora.
