A to Z Blog Challenge 2018 – Letter F 2018 A to Z Challenge

Welcome to the 2018 edition of the A to Z Blogging Challenge!

All through the month of April, the challenge asks us to blog every day (except Sundays), and to go through the alphabet A to Z, connecting our posts to the letter of each day.

My idea for this time, my 5th to participate, is to showcase a book or two each day, and provide a tiny bit of information about them. These will not be a full book review, but just saying what it is about, and if I liked the book or not.

These books are mostly books that I already have on my shelves, and have read, or are on my to be read stacks. There will be a very few of them that I don’t already own, or have read.

I will also post a quote each day that has something to say about books, or reading.

Hope you enjoy, and maybe see a book or a few that you might want to read, too.

“Found”, by Davy Rothbart, is a weirdly wonderful book. I have two of them.

The author has a penchant for finding all kinds of random things. He actively goes around looking for odd things, like notes, photos, cards, letters, and more. He finds things like this on the sidewalks, alleys, stores, and really everywhere he goes. Then, he created the “Found” magazine, and books, where he shows what he has found, and talks about finding them. Some are very strange, some are sad, and some are really funny.

I love doing this, myself. I find all kinds of things, too, and plan on making a scrapbook of them.

“Father Does Know Best”, by Lauren Chapin, is the memoir of the actress who played Kathy “Kitten” Anderson, on the TV sit-com, “Father Knows Best”. The series ran from 1954 through 1960. I’m pretty sure I watched every episode, as it was one of my favorite shows. It plays occasionally in re-runs.

The happy family portrayed in the TV series, was a far cry from her real life, where she was mentally, emotionally, and sexually abused. She also became a drug user, had failed marriages, and miscarriages. This is her very candid look back at her life and career.

Would You Rather? – NanoPoblano – Day 2

Would You Rather? – NanoPoblano – Day 2

***

https://cheerpeppers.wordpress.com/2016/09/07/why-blog-everyday-in-november/

It’s approaching that time again

***

So, here it is the second day of NanoPoblano. Here’s the first of my ‘pot-luck’ posts. I was looking around for ideas, and found the box of questions from the game, “Would You Rather”. I will do some of these, and if you’d like to play along, let me know your choices. 🙂

Here’s the first question:

Would you rather…Spend 2 hours in a room with 100 wasps – or – sleep one week in a room with 2 rats?

~

My answer: I’d choose sleeping with the rats. I like rodents, and I could be the rat whisperer, and make little friends of them. I have a way with animals, anyway, so it would be no problem. Maybe I could teach them tricks, or make little costumes for them.

🙂

Now, which would you rather do?

MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD

Standard

MYSTERY BLOGGER AWARD

mystery-blogger-award-e1483766889326

I was nominated to receive the Mystery Blogger Award by Oneta. Thanks so much for thinking of me. Oneta’s blog, “Sweet Aroma”, can be found at the following link: https://onetahayes.com/2017/01/07/mysterious-blogger-award/

***

To accept this award we are supposed to thank who nominated us, tell 3 thing about yourself, leave a link to your best post, answer a few questions, and nominate others. I don’t do the nomination part, as I believe every blogger deserves to be recognized for all the hard work they put into their writing. If you’d like to claim this award, feel free to do so. 🙂

***

The questions for this award are as follows:

3 things about myself: I like taking photos of spiders and other insects, I don’t like winter/cold weather, I really like flying in airplanes

I’m going to pick and choose these questions from the ones Oneta answered, and the ones she asked us to answer. 🙂

  1.  What are the things you do for fun? Write on this blog, play with my grandkids, play board games, color in coloring books, scrapbooking, painting, shop in thrift stores, reading…well, most everything I do is fun, except house work!
  2. If you were given the chance to choose between a million dollars and writing, which would you choose, and why? A million dollars, and then I would have lots of money to do all the things I do for fun, get another computer in case this one conks out, and of course give some to my daughters.
  3. You have three days to do something for which you are not accountable. What would you do? It would be fun to spend that time with my family in a big store, by ourselves, playing with the toys, trying on the clothes, and using whatever we wanted to, and just being silly with it all.
  4. What will you do if you have no choice but to live in a house that creeps you out for three weeks? Move right in. I’d do my ghost hunting, and write about it all.
  5. Weird, funny, or sentimental answer please.  What have you had that you considered to be your lucky charm, or something you just can’t go to sleep without (teddy bear or blanket or other)? I don’t think I have a lucky charm item. I like a soft blanket, and my own pillow, well a bunch of pillows arranged just right at night.
  6. My best blog post? I’ll let you decide by your visits here, your likes and comments, and follows. I appreciate each and every one! Thank you so much! 🙂

Thanks again, Oneta, for the nomination for the Mystery Blogger Award! 🙂
