Discussion #1: The Wildwater Walking Club

So how about if we get started with discussion #1 for book #36, The Wildwater Walking Club? If you’ve read through chapter 18, then give us your take on these starter questions:

  • Noreen takes a buyout from Balancing Act partly because of Michael’s influence. Have you ever let a career decision be influenced by a man you were dating? Kind of dating?
  • If you were Rosie, would you have uprooted your family and moved them to the lavender farm to help your father? If not, which of your siblings might have stepped up?
  • Balancing Act sneakers and slogans include: Dream Walker. (You’ll Swear You’re Walking on Clouds.) Step Litely. (Do These Sneakers Make Me Look Thin?) Feng Shuoe. (New Sneakers for a New Age.) If you were creating your dream sneaker, what would you name it and what would its slogan be?
  • Do think clotheslines should be outlawed or encouraged? Why?
  • Which character in The Wildwater Walking Club is most like you? Which one would you most like to hang around with?

Or maybe you have other questions you’d rather discuss? Bring it on!

    No, I can honestly say that I haven’t. I think that Michael is a person who is used to get out the older, single women with longevity with the company. I hope he gets his in the end.

    If you were Rosie, would you have uprooted your family and moved them to the lavender farm to help your father? If not, which of your siblings might have stepped up?

    I think that I would have if the opportunity had presented itself.

    Balancing Act sneakers and slogans include: Dream Walker. (You’ll Swear You’re Walking on Clouds.) Step Litely. (Do These Sneakers Make Me Look Thin?) Feng Shuoe. (New Sneakers for a New Age.) If you were creating your dream sneaker, what would you name it and what would its slogan be?

    I have no idea, but they must be very comfortable. I live in sneakers. I have one pair of heels.

    Do think clotheslines should be outlawed or encouraged? Why?

    Encouraged. They have been used for hundreds, if not thousands of years, and if they save energy, why not?

    Which character in The Wildwater Walking Club is most like you? Which one would you most like to hang around with?

    Tess. I would love to be friends with all of them, but hopefully they would have sneakers in my size!

  2. Noreen takes a buyout from Balancing Act partly because of Michael’s influence. Have you ever let a career decision be influenced by a man you were dating? Kind of dating?
    No, but I have made a career decision that was influenced by a man who was a coworker/friend of mine. We were both Software Engineers at an engineering firm, then he took a position with another software company and convinced me to take one, too. The job paid a ridiculously huge salary – how could I refuse?

    If you were Rosie, would you have uprooted your family and moved them to the lavender farm to help your father? If not, which of your siblings might have stepped up?
    Yes, it was the noble thing to do and she’s doing it well. I don’t know of any siblings who would step up otherwise.

    Balancing Act sneakers and slogans include: Dream Walker. (You’ll Swear You’re Walking on Clouds.) Step Litely. (Do These Sneakers Make Me Look Thin?) Feng Shuoe. (New Sneakers for a New Age.) If you were creating your dream sneaker, what would you name it and what would its slogan be?
    Stylin’ Hot Momma Trekkers. (For the Out & About Town Momma who’s never out of style.) What? It could work!

    Do think clotheslines should be outlawed or encouraged? Why?
    As hideous as they may be, clotheslines should be encouraged. If anything, they’re an excellent way to conserve energy, cut costs, and help save our planet.

    Which character in The Wildwater Walking Club is most like you? Which one would you most like to hang around with?
    A little of Tess and Noreen. Love the sense of humor!

    You should hear this book, it is amazing! Between this and reading RN, I am hooked on books!

  4. @maksbestfriend – one of these days, I do need to download an audio version of our book selection. It’s been awhile! So are you reading RN? I’d like to read it next, but only if you’re not already too far into it.

  5. maksbestfriend says:

    Just doing what you are doing, picking at it before sleep, nothing major, do definitely want to read it with you. I have a feeling it is going to be an emotional, great read.

    If you do your best eye in the back of your head glare at me I will put it down. I promise.

    Right now I am watching an HBO special series on Alzheimers, since it is becoming apparent that Mitch’s mom may be heading that way.

  7. @maksbestfriend – ok… step away from the book, Becca! How am I to keep up? Please watch the HBO special away. from. the. book. Thanks!

  8. maksbestfriend says:

    All finished…how about you? 🙂

  9. @maksbestfriend – Finished last night, the perfect book to get me through fasting for the cholesterol test! Will post next set of questions ASAP. Thanks for the ‘heads up’.
