    I've not started this one yet but this interview cracks me up, I know it's not allowed in a page but still. Al Capone and the IRS.
    WILSON: Were your financial transactions, particularly disbursements, usually handled in currency?
    CAPONE: Yes.
    WILSON: You have no canceled checks or check stubs?
    CAPONE: No.
    WILSON: What did you do with your money--carry it on your person?
    CAPONE: Carried it on my person.
    I just can't even with his answers and how he bought a house in Miami with a $10,000 down payment way back then in his wife's name. All they could catch him on was tax evasion.

    @bcgal00 So... I'm feeling a bit confused... Are we required to include our own answers to the questions or can we just interview someone and write the questions and their answers? My understanding was that part of the requirements for this challenge was to get at least 2 different perspectives on the same event - my own and someone else's? I'm asking because if it's open to just interviewing someone about an event that I wasn't part of, that opens up a whole new slew of possibilities... :)

    Word count 259. Remind me never interview teenage boys who for some reason can't say very much or speak in full sentences!!!

    Oh my goodness: yes!! I interviewed my teenage son a couple of hours ago for this challenge, and it was like pulling teeth to get an answer out of him. Am now trying to work up something with what scant material he could supply!

    (I love your pirate theme!).

    This was a labor of love, I actually enjoyed revisiting the story, but my vision required a lot of tweaking, layering & masking to carry it out. As I believe someone else may have had a similar experience, my husband wasn't really all that chatty. But I did manage to squeak out 284 words (minus the Me, Frank & Jan identifiers). The journaling is posted in the gallery credits.

    I had to scale this down because my mom said a few things that were not printable. Not rude, or bad words, just not sharing stuff. My mom and Sam got married about 15 years ago. My father died about 25 years ago. This was a sad conversation for my mom as Sam died about 4 years.

    I'm going to have to do this with other vacations. It's kinda fun to see what she remembers from when she was 6. And there will be another page about Grandpa leaving the car running!

    Interviewed my daughter about when she was young and we went to our school picnic days. We definitely were not on the same page.
