When I was a kid, I wanted to be ... an adult because I thought they knew everything and never cried.

What would you rather be doing right now? Attending an interesting class or writing a Sunday Talk.

Shhhhhh! Don't tell anyone that ... after all this time, I miss my family of origin holiday gatherings.

Other than your wedding day and/or the birth of your children, what was your proudest moment? The day I was accepted into ministerial education.

It really stinks when ... people moan and groan but will not do anything to change the situation or allow another to help resolve the situation.

What word in the dictionary would your face be next to? Interesting.

I always laugh when ... I hear my grandsons giggle.

Invite any three people, living or dead, to dinner. Who are they? Wayne Dyer, Charles Fillmore and Emma Curtis Hopkins so that ideas could be exchanged and expressed.

At the end of a really long day at work, I like to ... go out to dinner with my husband and friends.

People who knew me in high school thought I was ... a lot of fun.

My most unforgettable brush with greatness was ... Marlo Morgan who wrote ‘Mutant Message Down Under."

I would drop all my plans tonight if I had the chance to ... go out with my husband, sons and daughter-in-law who were all in exceptionally good moods.

If someone gave me a million dollars, there is STILL no way I would ... think it enough to do all I would like to do with it to revitalize this town.

America should be more concerned about ... the education of parents and teachers so that our children will be better able to cope in this world and be healthier.

I'm OK if there's ever a national shortage of ... clothing, silver and dishes.

When I'm on the internet, I always go to ... I'm not an internet person.

What is the most useful piece of advice you have ever received? "Decide what you want to do, how you are going to do it and then do it." The person was Jim Prow, who at that time was head of the Guidance Department at Quincy College.

When I'm cruising down the road, I'm likely listening to ... what I have to do next and am I on time.

I always get sentimental when ... I see a sad Christmas show, when attending a wedding or seeing a baby.

The older I get, the more I realize ... how little we all know.

If I had one "do-over," I would ... have gone and graduated from graduate school with a double major.

My favorite item of clothing is ... the dress I wore when I met my husband, which no longer fits.

If I've learned anything at all ... I should have been with my mother when she made out her will and made sure the rest of the family knew what was in it.

Judy Taylor, who says she's "old enough," is married with twin sons, two grandsons ages 3 and 6, and three younger brothers. She has worked in management/sales and is an ordained minister, having served three churches and a life enrichment center, and has been a facilitator of grief groups. Taylor also established a doll house museum in Quincy.
