I would have to say I’m a big fan of all kinds of skulls and skeletons. I like all things Halloween, and especially these kind of items for the Day of the Dead – Dia de los Muertos.

I have painted rocks with skeletons on them, I have jigsaw puzzles, and stickers. I also have rings and necklaces with skulls. 🙂

The Questions:

What’s the first thing you’d do if you won the lottery or came into a huge fortune? 

Which decade do you think had the best sense of style?

Would you rather be half your height or double your weight?

If you wanted to get away from everyone totally, where would you hide?


 

What do you do that you love? 

***

My Answers:

  • Pay off all bills of ours and our daughters & their families, buy stuff I wanted or needed.
  • The hippie eras of the 60s and 70s, because that was my favorite.
  • Half my height, which would be strange.
  • In a haunted house, because that would be fun, and everyone else would be scared to be in there.
  • My usual things I do already, of writing, reading, creating art, and listening to music.

Flower of the Day – Silverleaf Nightshade

Standard

Flower of the Day – Silverleaf Nightshade

***

This is a weed flower right by our back porch. It is lilac colored with elongated yellow center parts.

I looked up what it really is, and found out that all parts of the plant is poisonous. At one stage there forms little tomato like balls. Do not eat them!

We’ve always seen these around here, so it was interesting to find out about it.

It’s still pretty, even if it is a weed.

Fibbing Friday Q & A

Standard

Fibbing Friday Q & A

***

These are fun questions we’re supposed to answer in any kind of silly, wrong, or outrageous ways. Just for fun!

The instructions you can find at the link below.

https://pcguyiv.wordpress.com/2019/09/06/fibbing-friday-september-6th-2019/

***

***

The Questions:

  1. What’s at the core of a baseball?
  2. Why do leaves change color in autumn?
  3. Why are some superstitions called “old wive’s tales”?
  4. What is Labor Day all about?
  5. Why do schools traditionally stop classes during summer?
  6. Why is US football played in autumn?
  7. Why is the World Series championship awarded to the team that wins 4 out of 7 games rather than just which team wins 1 game?
  8. Why is football called soccer in the US?
  9. Why are bachelor degrees so named?
  10. Why are there no holidays in August?

***

My silly answers:

  1. Since the baseball is a mini version of the world, the core/center holds the secret to why we are here in the world. When people hit the baseball, they are trying to split it open to find out the secret. So far no one has been able to split the ball open.
  2. Leaves change color in autumn because all the children in the summer time have spilled gallons of kool-aid on the ground around the trees. The trees soak up all the cherry red, and lemon yellow, and orange orange colors of the kool-aid, so their leaves turn pretty & sweet.
  3. Superstitions are called ‘old wives tales’ because they are old enough to think up silly things to scare people. Young wives are too busy with their new husband and maybe some kids, to sit around thinking up scary warnings.
  4. Labor Day is all about Yad Robal, which is a new computer language. It’s a fad that is sweeping the world.
  5. Schools stop classes in the summer time because everyone has to go hide from the migration of the cicadas.
  6. U S football is played in autumn because when those big football players crash into each other it usually smashes some cicadas, helping to get rid of them.
  7. You lost me on that question with all the numbers. Don’t know – don’t care.
  8. Football is called soccer in the US – huh? I get confused
  9. Bachelor degrees are called that because single men need a strong deoderant.
  10. There are no holidays in August because we call them vacations.

Little Bird – Song Lyric Sunday – Bird/Fly/Sky/Wing

Today for SLS, Jim has given us the topic of Bird/Fly/Sky/Wing. Thanks, Jim!

You can also post music for this challenge – it’s fun! Just click the above link for details.

This was the first song I thought of for today. It has all the words in it that were suggested.

I really like this song, and have heard it lots of times, because we have the CD, which has more good songs on it.

The first time I heard this was at a live performance, that Sherrie Austin was having. It was at a huge tail-gating party before the local Texas Tech University football game. It was a beautiful fall day, and her singing could be heard loud and clear over the speakers, so we wandered over to watch awhile. Excellent! 🙂

***

This is a cute video, too. I like that she’s representing a blue bird with her pretty blue dress, and is caged, maybe from a controlling person in her life. I like seeing the black cat sneaking up on the cage a lot! 🙂

***

“Little Bird”, by Sherrie Austin, was released as a single from her album, “Love in the Real World” in 1999. It was written by Sherrie Austin, Christopher Davis, and Will Rambeaux, and is on the Arista Nashville label.

A bird in a cage can’t use its wings
One day she might refuse to sing
You’ll find some feathers on the floor and an open door

Ooh Ooh whatcha gonna do
When your little bird flies away
Hey Hey, Ooh Ooh whatcha gonna say
Whatcha gonna do
When your little bird flies away

A bird in a cage is on display
People they poke and stare all day
If she can get those bars to bend
She won´t be back again

Ooh Ooh whatcha gonna do
When your little bird flies away
Hey Hey, Ooh Ooh whatcha gonna say
Whatcha gonna do
When your little bird flies away

Free to touch the sky
She never dreamed she´d ever fly so high

Ooh Ooh whatcha gonna do
When your little bird flies away
Hey Hey, Ooh Ooh whatcha gonna say
Whatcha gonna do
When your little bird flies away

Flower of the Day – Homecoming Mums

Standard

Flower of the Day – Homecoming Mums

***

It’s getting that time of year, when schools get ready for football season, and homecoming games. These are pretty artificial flower mums with your school colors of ribbon streamers, and people can decorate them with all kinds of little charms.

When I was in school, we only had the real flower mums. They were giant sized, too, and so fun to wear.
