Q and A with Cherrie Willett
OUR Q&A this week is with one of Dalby's favourite barmaids, Cherrie Willett.
Cherrie has worked tirelessly at the Dalby Leagues Club for 31 years and in that time has made countless close friends.
Who would you want to play you in a movie of your life?
Meryl Streep. I like her as an actress and she would have no problem playing someone like me.
What do you think the greatest invention has been?
Electricity. It has made life a lot easier for both men and women.
Do you have any lucky items, objects or traditions?
Coming from Kirra Beach, I like walking the tracks and collecting shells. I also carry a penny on me wherever I go.
Is there anything you wished would come back into fashion?
Not really as fashion is not my thing. I have always worn what I wanted. My mother taught me you don't judge a book by its cover, you find out what the person is really like.
What three things do you think of most each day?
My family, friends and work.
What's been the best decision you've made in your life so far?
Getting married and having my three children.
If you could replace one body part with a super bionic replacement, what body part and what features would the new bionic replacement have?
Bionic legs - so I can keep up with my wonderful grandchildren.
What was your first car (or what would you like it to be)?
My first car was a Holden. My husband and I paid cash for it and we were so proud of it.
What do you consider is the most important appliance in a house?
Washing machine - anything that makes the workload easier when you are already so busy.
What historical period would you like to live in if you could go back in time?
None, because I am happy that I was born in the '50s. In the '60s we all worked very hard and families stayed together. There seems to be a lot more stress on the children today.
