FOWC – Handle

FOWC – Handle

FOWC with Fandango — Handle

***

Today, Fandango has chosen ‘handle’ as the prompt word. Thanks!

~ actually, this was for yesterday…hope it’s okay to be late for the prompts! (seems I’m always running late on these things)

***

What’s your handle?

This means you are asking someone what their name is, or what do they call you, or what name do you go by.

I think you heard it a lot if you used a CB (Citizens Band) radio. I always wanted to do that, because it sounded fun, and you got to choose a fun and descriptive name for yourself.

These days, I would think it is more about your online name, your alias, AKA (also known as), or the name you go by on social media.

Here’s a clip from the 1977 movie, “Smokey and the Bandit”, with Burt Reynolds and Jerry Reed talking on their CB radios. The movie was funny, and had several sequels. It also starred Sally Field, and Jackie Gleason.

Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?

I wasn’t named after anyone, first or middle name.

Music or silence while working?

Either one. Mostly the TV is on some boring show, and I have to ignore it, as it’s right by my desk here. If I ever get a chance, I turn it on mute. Sometimes I’ll put on ‘my’ kind of music, sometimes I just enjoy the silence for awhile.

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?

Are you asking where would the special places be, or what would be the special possessions? From the list of no-nos, I don’t have a lot of other things that would be special, and would need a special place to keep them. My writing notebooks would be a major one, though, and I keep most of them in a metal file cabinet. I need a larger one though, because they don’t all fit in the one. I keep my inexpensive jewelry in several jewelry boxes. Would medicines be a special possession? I keep mine in a kitchen cabinet.

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?

I will never…get in a lake on purpose, parachute from a plane, be intentionally mean to a person or animal

I will never like… fish, sports, bullys, sickness, wars

Share Your World – 2016 Week 35

Time again for Cee’s SYW, where she asks the questions and we give her some answers. There is a sentence in her explanation of how this challenge works, along the lines of … ‘we are in the SYW world. Answers may/may not be our reality’. 🙂 That’s one thing that makes this challenge so fun. You can answer however you want, true or make-believe!

If you’d like to join in, just click the link above, to find out where we find the fun! 🙂

Now, here we go with the Q & A part! Enjoy!

Q1 – List 2 things you have to be happy about.

Besides famiy, pets, and health, which always comes first, I would say I’m happy that I can write things, and people read what I write. Thank you all for that! I had no idea when I started this blog, what would happen or if anyone would actually see it. I appreciate each and every one of you. I’m happy I get to read your writing, also! So, writers and readers, I’m happy about.

Also, I’m happy I have so many varied interests that I’m almost never bored. There’s always something new to write, read, craft, and do.

Q2 – If you could take a photograph, paint a picture, or write a story of any place in the world, what and where would it be?

Is this a question of where would I like to travel? If I could actually teleport myself, I’d go visit outer space, the universe. I’d be like those mighty telescopes and cameras that take photos of stars, planets, and all that is in the sky, including seeing if there are any aliens and UFOs up there. I’d probably come back and paint a picture of what I’d seen, and then write a story about my adventures. 🙂 …p.s. I’d not ever consider going in a space ship. That would take too long.

Q3 – Should children be seen and not heard?

Children should be seen and heard. Kids are cute, and have the most wonderful imaginations and thoughts. If you don’t let them talk about it, you’d miss out on what they are thinking about. This is not to say they shouldn’t be taught to behave in certain situations, but the exuberance of childhood is a wonder to behold!

Q4 – List at least 5 of your favorite first names.

Oh…names are one of my favorite things to think about. (remember my 1,001 horse names I wrote down?) I still love names of all kinds. I like to read those baby naming books to see what meaning they have. I sort of collect, by writing down, any interesting names I come across.

I like all our family’s names, but I won’t list those (privacy), but here are a few I really like that I can think of right now. There are so many!

Ghost (of course)

Bop (what my grand-daughter calls me)

Grammy (what my grand-son calls me)

Da-Dad (what my grand-daughter calls her grandad)

Dan-da-Dad (what my grand-son calls his granddad)

Then, a few others I like…

Sage, Havok, Poverty, Siobhan, Shael, Shy, Kat, Jade, Rory, and Sky.

I actually met a guy named Shy. He had a name tag on, and I asked him if that was his real name, and he said it was. 🙂

Well, that’s enough listing names. I could go on and on…

Q5 – Bonus Question…what are you grateful for this recent past, and what are you looking forward to coming up?

I’m grateful for the rain we’ve been getting! We sure needed it. Looking forward to more. 🙂
