In honor of Di’s puppy dog, Maggie, who is celebrating her 15th birthday today, we have questions about dogs!

Happy Birthday, Maggie! 🙂

***

1. What’s the difference between a hair and a whisker?

Hair belongs on your head, and whiskers don’t belong anywhere.

2. How many spots were there in 101 Dalmations?

Probably too many to count, as none of the dogs were house broken.

3. What is the Flying Dog?

The Flying Dog is the name of a fast food joint that sells hot dogs. It’s a cousin to the Flying Burrito.

4. Why do we say ‘sick as a dog?’

Because it is a jump rope rhyme/chant. ‘Hot dog on a stick – makes you sick – how many hot dogs did you eat?’

5. What is meant by ‘going to the dogs’?

It means to get all dressed up for a fancy night out, similar to ‘putting on the dog’.

6. Who or what is ‘Goofy?’

Goofy is … what I become right before and after anesthesia.

7. Where is the Dog Star?

The Dog Star is on Hollywood sidewalk of stars – it’s for all the dog actors.

8. Where will you find puppies on a roll?

Puppies go rolling around in a beautiful green meadow. They chase butterflies & have a grand old time.

9. What are hush puppies?

Hush puppies are dogs that have been muzzled, to stop their barking or biting.

10. What is the hair of the dog?

Hair of the dog is what you find in the grooming brush.

10 Year Tag

https://pensitivity101.wordpress.com/2020/01/11/ten-years-2010-to-2020/

I was happy to have been tagged to do this 10 Year Challenge by Di, at Pensitivity 101. She can be found blogging at the above link. Thanks so much, Di. 🙂

***

Here are some guidelines:

Please share a link to the creator of the tag

Share some highlights for you over the past decade and if you want, a few low points

 Tag whoever you wish to.

Ask them some questions

Use any picture appropriate for such a tag.

***

These are the questions she has asked:

Is there any year in the past decade that stands out as the best?

The years my grand-kids were born.

Has your taste in music changed in the past ten years or do you think music in general has changed?

My taste in music has not changed, but the music we hear now certainly has. I still like rock ‘n roll, and music from the 60s, but you don’t hear cool music that now.

Are you heavier or lighter than you were ten years ago?

Up and down from one time to another.

How many cars have you owned in the past decade?

One – a  blue Dodge Ram pick-up truck.

 

***

Ten years is a long time to think back on, especially when I can barely remember last week, but I’ll try. My memory is fuzzy on some of the actual dates, though.

A couple of wonderful highlights of the past decade, plus one year before that (2009), was the birth of my two grandchildren. They are delightful, and I love them very much. One is now 10 years old, and the other is six years old.

Celebrating Christmas & Thanksgiving with my daughters and their families.

Taking trips to see my daughter in another state, visiting and also seeing the sights.

Going to yard sales and book sales with my other daughter and my grand-daughter here in town.

Continuing to enjoy blogging.

Having two of my poems published in two magazines.

And I guess this last one could be both bad and good … being in the hospital several times for either illness or surgery. I survived!

~

The lowest points of the past 10 years was all four of our cats crossing the Rainbow Bridge. Gretchen, Weena, Paolo, and Cricket, and our dogs Bud and Weasel. (not sure about the dates)  I miss them all so much.

Having our air conditioning unit go out one summer, and in Texas you sure don’t want that to happen. We got it fixed, but for a few days there we were melting.

***

I’ve had fun answering the questions, and I tag anyone who’d also like to take a look back at the past 10 years. 🙂

  1. How did the phrase, “That’s the last straw!” originate?

It was a contest held at a restaurant, and the person who took the last straw in the dispenser won a prize.

  1. What really grows in Contrary Mary’s garden?

Mary’s was a garden of good and evil – she grew roses – beautiful, yet dangerous and thorny.

  1. Though often depicted as such, Humpty Dumpty is never called an egg in the nursery rhyme. Who or what is he, really?

Humpty Dumpty was a Numpty raging about a wall. I think you know who I mean.

  1. How much wool did the black sheep have, and where did he get it?

The black sheep got all his yarn at the craft store – as much as he needed to finish a project.

  1. Why did the little lamb follow Mary everywhere she went?

The lamb followed Mary because she had tasty lamb kibbles in her pocket.

  1. What exactly is a tuffet?

A tuffet is a dish scrubber.

  1. What happened to the Knave of Hearts after he stole the Queen’s tarts?

The Knave got sick from eating the tarts because they were past their expiration date.

  1. What kind of pie was Little Jack Horner eating?

Little Jack Horner was having some of the King’s blackbird pie.

  1. Why did the girls cry when Georgie Porgie kissed them?

The girls cried foul when Georgie kissed them, because he had bad breath.

  1. What does the phrase, “Bob’s your uncle” mean?

It means someone is telling a lie, because I don’t have an uncle named Bob.

What makes a hyena laugh?

A hyena laughs because it’s in his job description. When tourists come by to take his picture, they expect to see him laughing. What he’s really laughing at is the people taking his picture.

 What is Mrs Claus’ christian name?

Paitence – she has to put up with those pesky elves running around, reindeer stomping her garden, and Santa, her Mr. only has one job a year, and doesn’t even get paid for it.

 What did little Jack Horner pull out of his pie?

A hair – because the person who made the pie didn’t wear a hair net.

Where will you find the brightest star?

In the sky during the day time – it’s called the Sun.

 Which is the odd one out: feather, light, middle, heavy, dead

Dead, because when you’re dead – you’re out.

 What makes gas?

Beans, beans the musical fruit.

 Why do ants march?

Because the queen ant is a tyrant

What is a gaffer?

A gaffer is a golfer that cracks jokes during a round of golf. He’s a golfer/laugher = gaffer

 What is a polygon?

Polygon was the original name of the game of Monopoly, but it was vetoed – now it’s gone for good.

Why have all my questions begun with the letter ‘W’?

Because it’s the Weekend, so beginning the questions with W will remind us.

Share Your World & a Flashback

***

It’s another Monday, and time for new questions from Melanie and answers from me! To join in, and see other entries, just click the above link. Thanks, so much for taking on the SYW challenge!

Here are the Qs & As =

What’s your remedy for the Holiday blues?

I don’t think I ever have the holiday blues. Not sure even what this means. You either like celebrating the holidays, or you don’t.

You may at times feel forced to socialize with family, friends, or co-workers, you know – put on a happy face. I don’t think I’d feel ‘blue’ about it, though. I know I don’t like parties much, anyway, but for a little while I can handle it.

Now later on, after all the build up to a holiday, the actual festivities, and then there is maybe a let down feeling that all the fun has gone away until next time. Would that be feeling ‘blue’?

Your favorite beverage (if it differs) during the holiday season?  If it doesn’t differ, just answer the ‘what’s your favorite beverage” part. 

I drink hot coffee and iced tea all the time. It never changes, except with milk for breakfast. I do like the taste of egg nog at Christmas, though, just a little bit of it.

This one has been asked before, but what’s your take on pumpkin spice?

I like pumpkin pie very much. That’s the only thing pumpkin I’ve ever had, and all the other foods that have this spice flavor I don’t think I’d like at all.

Now, look what I found.

I was going through some old posts and found the very first Share Your World one I ever did. It was when Cee was the host of the challenge, and these are the questions from that one. 🙂

*I looked at the link I’d put on here, but that page isn’t there any more, so I took it out*

SHARE YOUR WORLD

SHARE YOUR WORLDsywbanner

I ran across this interesting blog the other day. The blogger puts different challenges on for people to participate in. The one I wanted to do today is called “Share Your World”. Every week there is a new prompt. This is the first one I will be doing. The prompt had a list of several topics to choose from…you could pick four, and then list four things related to these that you like. It is just a fun way to get to know more about each other, and find some new blogs to read. I like that idea. 🙂

Here are the topics I chose to respond to …

FAVORITE SONGS

I love all kinds of music, so it was hard to choose only four, but for today I’ll say…

Amie by Pure Prairie League

High Enough by Damn Yankees

The Bliss & Lola Montez  by Volbeat

Simple Man by Lynyrd Skynyrd

Then I listen to the Eagles songs pretty much every day, because…the Eagles! Also, I like the Steve Miller Band songs.

***

THINGS YOU’D LIKE TO HAVE IN YOUR HOUSE

I’d love to have a whole wall done in chalkboard…that way I could write and draw on the wall, and change it whenever I wanted. (I have a thing since I was a kid about writing on the walls…actually got in trouble for it 😉

An indoor atrium/patio with lots of plants and tropical things.

One of those clay type fire pit that you burn wood in…called a chiminea.

I would love to have a huge covered, wooden porch, with an old fashioned porch swing.

***

THINGS THAT MAKE YOU LAUGH

My grandchildren. They are so funny in the things they say and do.

My cats…always cute and silly. (sadly all my indoor cats have passed on now)

Typos and bloopers in newspapers, or on signs…they crack me up every time.

“I Love Lucy” television show. No matter how many times I’ve seen them, I always laugh.

***

FAVORITE FLOWER

Chrysanthemum

Larkspur

Honeysuckle

Sunflower

***

So, that’s the list I did. Hope you enjoyed reading some of the things I like!

Time for another SYW, with questions from Melanie, and answers from me!

Join in this fun weekly challenge, and see other entries by clicking the above link. 🙂

Wishing everyone a wonderful and peaceful Thanksgiving.

What did you have for dinner last night?

We had a Mexican food TV dinner. It had two enchiladas, re-fried beans, and a coconut pudding.

Would you rather go out on a Saturday night or stay in?

We never go out at night, or ever really. I wouldn’t go out no matter which night it was.

How are you, truthfully?

Just fine.

What’s the best topping/ice cream combination?  If you don’t eat ice cream, what’s your favorite combination dessert?  (Example: pie and ice cream or pie and whipped cream – that sort of answer)

I don’t eat much deserts any more, but I do like a small fruit combo – with cut up apples, some sweet cherries, maybe a grape or two. Peanut butter and apples are really good together. 🙂

Interesting questions from Melanie, and some answers from me. Join in the fun – click the above link for details. 🙂

***

  1. Is copying and pasting images or information off the Internet plagiarism?   Do you credit those whose work you ‘borrow freely’ or do you think the idea is repugnant?   (Credit for this question goes to GC and Sue)

It depends. If you copy someone’s photo or words and claim them as your own – that is a definite theft. If it’s a logo or badge for a challenge heading I’m pretty sure that is allowed. I try to give credit when I use something, even if it says it’s free to use.

  1. Do you let sleeping dogs lie?

Two ways to look at this … if you want to avoid an argument, then yes, leave it alone. If it’s talking about a real puppy dog, well, most times leave it to it’s nap, but our dogs (when we had them) didn’t mind us giving them a hug when they were sleeping.

  1. What’s the strangest pet name (for adults) that you’ve ever heard someone called?

Most all pet names are silly. Some are endearing, and loving, while others are downright insulting. One I know someone used to use was ‘Dummy’, and they meant it just like that.

  1. Do you like to dance?   If yes, what’s your favorite and if no, why not?

I’ve danced a little bit, but mostly in the living room. We used to go to a dance now and again. I wasn’t good at it, and never really liked it.

1. What’s a cyclops? *** A clop is a sound a horse makes when he is walking. There once was a horse named Cy, and he did a lot of clopping, so they named it after him.

2. What’s next in this sequence? Y, G, B, B,  *** There was a chain of variety stores called T. G. & Y, a long time ago. They’ve since gone out of business, so the B B means Bye-Bye.

3. Patty has 4 apples and Pete pinched a pair. What do Patty and Pete have now? *** Bruised cheeks. This sounds like a math puzzle – I don’t do math puzzles.

4. How would an alien describe sheep? *** Fluffy clouds on the ground.

5. What is Fool’s Gold? *** It’s a crayon. The color is gold, but it will fool you by turning another color without notice.

6. Ginger, Scary, Posh, Sporty and Baby were the original Spice Girls. If you were to audition to be a sixth Spice, what would you be and why? Guys you can answer this one too! *** I’d be Spirit Spice – I’d bring a lot of spirit to the group, and if it bombed, I’d disappear since I’m a ghost.

7. Why are traditional teapots brown? *** Because if you turn the word around to ‘pot-tea’ you’ll know why. Nobody wants to see those kinds of stains.

8. What are the Winds of Change? *** Zephyrs – they swirl around leaving magic in their wake.

9. What is an amaryllis? *** A girl who lives in Amarillo TX is known as an amayrllis.

10. What are blues and twos? *** The sounds that shoes make – a squeaky, yet mournful sound.

  1. Why is this month called “November”?

It’s the month of ‘no’ remembering. It clears our memory of last winter so we won’t compare it to this one.

  1. Why is Thanksgiving always the fourth Thursday of November instead of just being on a particular date?

It keeps changing the date to confuse me about my Thanksgiving birthday. Sometimes it’s on the holiday, sometimes not.

  1. What is No Shave November?

Supplies of shaving cream dwindle to almost nothing this time of year, so people can’t shave until more supplies come in.

  1. What is the day after Halloween called?

Skip school or work day, because you ate too much Halloween candy and now have a stomach ache.

  1. Why is turkey traditionally served at Thanksgiving?

I don’t know, but I wish they’d stop it – I don’t like turkey.

  1. So just what is a giblet anyway?

A giblet is a children’s singing group.

  1. Why are Veteran’s Day, Armistice Day, and Remembrance Day all on November 11th?

No disrespect intended, but the first letter of each of these are VAR – and stands for a variety of special days squished into one day.

  1. Why is November National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo)?

Why is the sky blue? Why is the grass green? Why not!

  1. Why is the day after Thanksgiving called “Black Friday”?

In honor of all the tasteless, dried out, burned turkeys from Thanksgiving having to be thrown out.

  1. Why is the Monday after Thanksgiving called “Cyber Monday”?

It’s the day when all the Cyborgs come crawling out of the closets to cause chaos.

1. What makes squash? A big hairy creature named Sass. That’s it’s first name. His last name is Squash. I don’t know who made him.

3. What’s a tuffet? A tuffet is a large cushion made of a Portabello mushroom.You could say it’s an edible chair.

4. What would you do with a flump? I’d put the flump on an educational TV program for children.He looks kinda like a lumpy elephant.

5. Why was the mate plucking pheasants? Because the pheasants loved having their feathers ruffled. It put them in a Zen mood.

6. What are minis, midis, and maxis? Well, without TMI, they are pads.

7. What would you find if you went down to the woods today? A magical place, because no woods has ever existed here before.

9. Why are fire engines red? Fire engines are red because they have to blend in with the fires in order to sneak up on them & squirt them with water

10. What’s green and goes round and round? A frog rolling down a grassy hill
