Here are the new question for SYW. Di is hosting while Melanie is taking a break.

***

1. Do you prefer to live in a single story property like a bungalow, a high rise apartment, or a house?

I like living in a house of our own, not bunched up with others like in apartments. We have lived in apartments, and duplexes before, though.

2. If you won a large amount of money on the lottery, would you want publicity or keep things quiet and low key?

I would keep quite except to immediate family.

3. How do you like your eggs? (No, this is not a trick question)

I like eggs cooked all kinds of ways. Scrambled are good, so are fried – over medium. Boiled or poached or in an omelet is good. I really like deviled eggs, too.

4. If cars were no longer available, what would be your choice of transport?

I’d be stuck at home, I guess. It would be fun to have a horse and wagon, but we have no place for those or the money for them, either. Most things around here are too far to walk to. Maybe I’ll just use my time machine to get around. 🙂

1. When you’re on holiday, do you prefer self catering or a hotel/B&B?

Well, we don’t ever go on a holiday or vacation. But when we used to, it was only to a family member’s house where we stayed. If we took a vacation now, I’d want to go with all the fancy hotel things. I’d not have to do any cooking or cleaning.

2. Do you have a favourite meal you cook for yourself or order when out?

I like home cooked meals best, but don’t do much of that these days. We both like our old family recipe way of making tacos. I also like my own version of egg rolls made from scratch. When I go out I usually get the same thing as always at whatever restaurant. Mexican food, or chicken fried steak I’ll never turn down.

3. In the current fuel crisis, have you made a conscious effort to use the car unless absolutely necessary?

Since the Mr. retired we don’t use our truck much. We get groceries and go to Dr. appointments. Doesn’t take much gas to do that.

4. If you were to compare yourself to a plant, what you be?

I’d like to be one of those mammoth giant sunflowers. They are tall, very bright and happy looking, and bring joy to those who see them. Also I’d provide sunflower seeds for people and the birds. 🌻 🌻 🌻

Throwback Thursday – Dating Days

Throwback Thursday – Dating Days

https://lssattitudeofgratitude.wordpress.com/2022/07/28/throwback-thursday-49-first-dating-experiences/

***

Today’s questions to think about is about our early dating experiences. Thanks, Lauren!

***

1) On your very first date, did you do the asking, or were you asked out?

I don’t remember. I don’t remember my first date at all.

2) Were you typically stressed out before a first date? Did things seem to be easier the more you dated the same person?

I don’t think I was ever nervous about a date.

3) What did you do to prepare for the date? Did you wear new clothes, or special outfits?

No, nothing specially bought. Just regular clothes. (except later on I got a fancy prom dress for that time)

4) How did you meet those first dates? Were your dates with friends of a family member, or friends of a friend?

All were from guys I met at school, except one which was a family friend.

5) Did you have a curfew on those early dates? Did you typically arrive home on time or were you constantly breaking curfew?

I think I had to be back home by 11 p.m. and was on time.

6) Did your parents insist on meeting whomever you dated?

I can’t remember. As one was a neighbor we already knew, and the others I don’t think so until my boyfriend I did get married to.

7) Where did you usually go when on a date? (movies, concerts, picnics, etc.)

Movies, restaurants, school functions like football games. Once I went on a little day trip with their family. Sometimes my almost husband and I would go out with his family to a club for music and dancing.

8) Did the boy/man always pay for the date or did you go Dutch treat?

The guy paid for the things we did on a date.

9) Were you typically the talker or the listener on a date?

Probably about even with talking and listening.

10) What did you do if the date clearly wasn’t going well? (feign a headache, ask to go home, end the date early, etc.)

I don’t think any date was not going well. We had fun doing things when we went out.

11) A connection from the past to the present, if applicable. How long did you date your current partner before marriage?

I met my husband when we were in 11th grade of high school. We dated that year, and the next school year 12th grade, and got married a few months after graduation. We were both 19. Guess it was a good match, as it will soon be 52 years this year we’ve been married.

12) Bonus Question: Care to share a disasters first date??????

Nope, didn’t have a disaster date. Oh, wait … my almost husband’s car broke down at a drive in movie once, and we had to call my dad to come get us. Or the time his car broke down on the highway and the cops gave us a ride home in their squad car. Well the date wasn’t a disaster, just the after part with the cars breaking down.

What mythical creature would improve the world most if it existed?  (If you don’t know, just choose something that you think would improve things  🙂  )

Maybe a magical unicorn! It would travel the world spreading happiness and joy, peace and goodwill, rainbows and sparkles and everyone would get along with each other – no arguments, no war, no shootings, no crime.

Should the death penalty be re-instated?  Why or why not?

I didn’t know it wasn’t still an option. Ok I looked it up and it’s still legal in 27 states.

Spontaneity Or Stability?

Mostly stability now. Years ago when we were moving around it was fun to be spontaneous.

Can a dog/cat suffer? What about an ant? What about a plant? What about a bacteria cell?  Why do some humans think we’re the only species that does suffer?  Your thoughts?

I think all creatures have some kind of sentient feelings, some more than others. This goes for plants, too. I’ve seen dogs & cats grieve over their companion canine & feline friends. I’ve seen a duck grieving over it’s mate that had gotten run over in the road. It’s so sad. They all have feeling of sadness, of happiness, of excitement and love. I’m not sure about ants and bugs, but I’m not dismissing it. And look at how many people talk to their plants and they seem to respond. I won’t go so far to say that bacteria does, though. That’s just ewww!

Here are the new questions for Share Your World (SYW). Thanks for hosting this fun challenge, Melanie! 🙂

***

The questions:

  1. In one sentence, how would you sum up the internet?
  2. Is true beauty subjective or objective? 
  3. How many chickens would it take to kill an elephant?  (like last week, I threw this one in for lightening things up a bit.  There is no ‘right or wrong ‘ answer – just have fun with it).
  4. If your five-year-old self suddenly found themselves inhabiting your current body, what would your five-year-old self do first?  

***

My answers:

1. The internet is a marvelous invention, which can be informative, entertaining, and useful for certain things, but beware what you click on or post on any social media as it could cause all kinds of trouble.

2. First I had to look up these words, and found they get confused in all kinds of ways. But I’d say beauty is purely subjective, which would be each persons own observation or opinion.

3. I don’t think chickens would want to kill an elephant. You know elephants really like to eat peanuts, well he probably drops some on the ground and the chickens get to eat them. So without the elephant the chickens wouldn’t get fed.

4. Play video games, and take lots of random photos with my phone camera, same as I do now.

Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

The brown leather purse I bought with my first paycheck

How did you spend the money from your very first job?

Not counting all the little stuff I bought from little jobs when I was a kid, I did finally get a ‘real’ job with a paycheck. I do remember what I bought. I went to Sears Department Store and bought a white blouse that had some ruffles on it, and also a leather purse. I still have the purse, a little worse for wear, but I keep sewing stuff in it now.

Would You Rather Look Like A Potato, Or Feel Like A Potato?  (Note.  I have no idea why they used the word “potato”, but just went with it.  Answer any way you like, this question is purely for fun)

What a strange question!! haha 🙂 I’d probably rather feel like a potato than look like one. Inside the potato is nice and crisp. I wouldn’t want to look like one though, because they are mostly dumpy and have a bit of dirt on them.

What were the best pair of shoes you have owned?

Shoes? I never liked shoes, and still don’t. I went from ugly brown oxfords when I was a kid, then tried other kinds later on, like black & white saddle shoes, penny loafers, buffalo sandals, Birkenstocks, and flip flops. Out of all of them my favorite was the Earth Shoe, and now Crocs. Both kind of ugly but they are comfortable.

Besides war and diplomacy, what would be the best way for countries to settle disputes?

This might be covered by diplomacy, but the leaders of disagreeing countries should talk it over, or have a boxing match or something. No one else but them.

Here are the questions for Share Your World this week. Thanks, Melanie! 🙂

***

What do you think it means to be healthy? … It depends on the person, and on which day you ask. Some days we feel fine, other days we just don’t. Everyone has something going on, visible or not visible, complaining or not complaining. There are guidelines to follow, but all you can do is try.

Is being obsessive about someone or something a good thing? … For the most part no. There’s a fine line between enjoying something, and going overboard. If it’s toward a person, there could be a case of stalking.  That’s criminal!

After a disagreement with your S.O., do you initiate the makeup conversation or wait for your S.O. to do it? … I’d say half and half.

Have you ever done something incredibly embarrassing in front of a huge crowd?  Feel free to share details or not.  Some things are best left in the closet..  … A huge crowd? Can’t remember if I ever did anything embarrassing, but might have. In front of family, all the time.

What’s your favorite way to spend a day off? If you’re retired, what’s something you now include in your schedule that you dreamed about while employed?

Without having an outside job (which I barely had one in the past) I can read as much and as long as I want.

Now that Covid isn’t so strictly monitored and folks can go out and about again, are you into after-work happy hours?

I never did happy hours ever. I still don’t go out anywhere, with the exception of Dr. appts.

What physical traits do you share with your relatives? (Example:  I have my mother’s nose)

My Dad’s nose – all on that side have the same shape nose.

How long does it take you to decide if you like someone or not?

5 seconds. Being an empath I can tell or know a lot about a person very fast. It’s just a vibe or feeling I can’t explain.
