What was your best Halloween costume? My husband and I love to dress up for Halloween and have even won several costume contests. We’ve been Popeye and Olive Oyl, Beth & Dog the Bounty Hunter, and Captain Morgan & his Pirate Lady. But, my favorite was the Red Queen & Mad Hatter from Alice in Wonderland.

What is your favorite karaoke song? “Killing Me Softly” by Fugees.
