Thank you, Addie! I do not own a title, nor does my family. I think you mean of "Lady" or "Princess."

Uckkkkkk! Titles seem to be so stuffy. I'm just Cat.

There are classmates whose parents are very rich. These classmates (but not all of them) are rude and very arrogant. They are in university because it is what they are supposed to do and do not study hard and they do not make the best grades. They say they do not have to work in life because they are rich.

I shall go to the opposite way. I shall get a job when I finish college. I do not have a job now because I was put away from the job I had, but I am applying to places to work on the weekends.

And you are very right, Addie. I came from a trash can. I always know this. I have told some of the classmates of this, and they were so very nice to me about it. One nice girl even hugged me and said she was glad I was found! And she is one of the nice ones with rich parents. But she wants to work very hard after college to be a music teacher.

I ask God every day to never let me forget where I came from and I always ask His help for me to be a successful American citizen. And if I achieve very good goals, I might one day write a book of it. I have thought of this. I have an idea of a title of it: "From Romania to the Shores of America" or something like this.

I believe that if I am good and honest and if I work very hard, I shall be successful. I do know I have family money but I did not earn it, so I do spend very little of it. Just because a child exists does not mean the world and their family owe them everything. It is the exact opposite of this. I owe God, the world, my family, and my country to try to be the very best citizen I can.

I am also so very grateful for everything I have. You perhaps might not believe this, but I have four dresses and even two jeans! I also have three skirts and two blouses and three t-shirts! And two pair of shoes and a pair of warm winter boots, a light jacket, a sweater, a heavy coat and two pair of shorts that are long almost to my knee. Such riches are these! But it does not take much of the space in my closet. American closets are enormous!

Oh I have posted too much. Addie I thank you for your kindness to me. You have so very much you are experiencing in your life, yet you find the time for me. You are so very nice.

And the same can be said for all my website family here. I thank all of you also for being so very good to me. DA knows of this website and I read the postings to her. She said she also likes my family here.

I do not remember if I told you of this, but I read the postings to her when I told that I was adopted. Some of these made her have tears and she said the website is very full of very good people.

I think I have babbled too much!

With love,
~Cat

3. Out from all of your possessions, which one is the favorite of these? I guess I have several favorites. My wedding rings, my opal ring and my ruby and diamond ring. The first for obvious reasons, my opal ring was the first thing I bought myself after graduating from nursing school, and the ruby and diamond ring my husband bought for me (ruby is his birthstone and diamond is mine) for my 40th birthday.

4. Do you like the regular books or the ebooks on a tablet such as Nook, etc.? I like both. I have a kindle which I like to travel with since I can use it to read and check email! It is also so much easier to pack than 2 or 3 books.

5. What kinds of items do you collect? I collect angel figurines.

6. Do you like to fly in airplanes? Yes I like to fly but it's too expensive and I'd rather not endure the searching etc that goes on these days to board. It must be a big jet though. Those little planes are scary and make me sick.

7. How many tiaras are in your family jewelry? None. We're just common folk here.

8. Do you play any of musical instruments? Yes. I play guitar also (but am rusty) and handbells. I have played clarinet, saxophone, bass clarinet, and dulcimer in the past but not since high school.

9. If you could change one thing of history, what would it be? That's a tough one. There are so many things that have happened. As far as world history I'd leave that alone. Personal history, I would want to change my mother's health and have her not get cancer. I miss her so much especially now that my son is getting married and she's not here to help celebrate.

10. What television series do you like to watch? I never miss NCIS. I will even watch episode reruns over other shows these days.
Thank you so very much, jabbur! It is nice to know of you!

With love,
~Cat

Well that is because you are important. You have position and status!

That is a beautiful tiara! She has such lovely jewelry.

With love,

My favorite tiara of hers is the Russian one. I will have to see if I can find a pic of it.

I'm sorry, but I can't put pictures of certain pieces of jewelry online. Anyone could see them and make replicas of them. However, I did see a very close replica of one of ours. This is the one I wore at my wedding, and I'll try to find it and send it to Cat.

Posting the picture of the ring is fine, though. It is not an exclusive design. But I do like Katie H's wedding set. How unusual! It is very lovely. Sapphires are beautiful.

1. What is your favorite color? Tie between purple and black

2. Do you keep a daily journal? I used to, not now

3. Out from all of your possessions, which one is the favorite of these? My silver stingray necklace

4. Do you like the regular books or the ebooks on a tablet such as Nook, etc.? I have 2 Kindles, a Paperwhite and the 2nd generation that has a waterproof cover to use in the pool. They travel so well!

5. What kinds of items do you collect? I used to collect David Winter cottages, but the cleaning lady dumped the shelf they were on, and now they're all chipped. I have a huge collection of my deceased mother's costume jewelry. I also used to collect frogs.

6. Do you like to fly in airplanes? Can't say I like it, but it gets me where I want to go, and much faster than walking

7. How many tiaras are in your family jewelry? I think I have one of Mom's.

8. Do you play any of musical instruments? I used to play piano (badly), as well as clarinet and bassoon (also badly)

9. If you could change one thing of history, what would it be? The Vietnam war

Dawgluver, I used to play the clarinet too. I was probably worse than you! I still have mine and I bring it out now and then to play it.
