The Kalmar Nyckel, Delaware’s tall ship, is a replica of Peter Minuit’s flagship for the 1638 expedition that founded New Sweden — the first permanent European settlement in the Delaware Valley — at Fort Christina, in present-day Wilmington. The ship made four round-trips across the Atlantic, more than any other documented ship of the colonial era.

“After careful consideration, I have concluded that it is not right to ask for your support in 2014, knowing that my focus would be divided between doing my job as attorney general while at the same time running as a candidate for governor,” he added.

Do you sleep with your sheets tucked in or out?

I tuck the covers under my feet? I guess that would count as having the sheets tucked in.

Do you chew your pens and pencils?

I do, and often times I don’t notice that I’m doing it. *laughs* it does discourage people from borrowing pens from me. Seeing as the cap is chewed slightly.

Do you sing in the shower?

No, I’m not much of a singer, anon. Though I do find myself signing tribal sings sometimes. 

Ever take dance lessons?

The only dances that I know, and am pretty confident about doing, as those that I’ve learned as a child. Don’t participate in powwows much, but when I did, my dance was the Pickwelanoeka, the Nighthawk Dance. It was both a dance of thanksgiving and a petition to the spirits for good health. Other than that, I’m not too great with modern dances, simple two step will get you by in life. *laughs*

Can you knit or crochet?

I wish! Though Delmar is pretty good at knitting.
