Happy Monday! Thanks for the questions, Melanie! 🙂

***

At 12 a.m. on December 31st/Jan 1st, what will you be doing?  (use your own time zone please)

I’ll be sound asleep! We don’t stay up to ring in the New Year. But if I do wake up, I’ll be cursing the people in our neighborhood for popping fire crackers.

Is there a tradition you have for New Year’s Eve?

None at all. We don’t go out, we don’t party, we are boring. But, on New Year’s day I try to have some black-eyed peas, as it’s supposed to be for good luck.

Do you have any hope or reason you find that next year will be better?

I hope things will be better and that the virus will go away, but doubt that will happen.

What’s the biggest personal lesson you learned during 2021?

To stay away from people.

What is your opinion of the state of health care in your country?  Adequate or inadequate?  What could be done to improve it?

I think it’s adequate, but just barely. Insurance costs too much for what it provides most of the time. I don’t like that they basically have control over what medical care a person gets. Prescriptions for medicine are way too high, too. That said, for us two, we have great insurance from being in the military, plus medicare. Our out of pocket charges are very low on doctor visits, hospital stays, and medicines. We are thankful and lucky.

What are two words that describe you best?

Distracted and animal lover

Do you have a morning routine? If so, what it’s like?

Get up, bathroom, blood sugar test, coffee, read blogs/write blogs, read book, breakfast, watch TV & more reading.

What’s something that really makes your blood race? 

Advertisements on TV, especially those about poor animals. Also news except weather reports. I try to avoid anything else.

Do you enjoy singing festive songs during *insert festive celebration that you observe to replace “Christmas” if it’s not relevant to you * Christmas carols or songs?[

I can’t carry a tune at all, but I sing anyway. I like Christmas songs, but don’t go around singing them. I don’t even listen to them very much.

Thanks for hosting the weekly challenge, Melanie! Thanks ES for providing today’s questions! 🙂

If you had the power to strike one person in your life permanently speechless, who would it be? (Real names aren’t necessary, vague descriptions are fine… and yes, this is being asked in fun and not to be mean)  … Maybe not in my actual life, as I don’t personally know any of these people – but I strike any and all politicians speechless.


If you could relive your childhood over again, what’s one thing from this modern world today you’d want to take back with you? … My phone

 

Red, orange, yellow, green, blue, and purple are the standard colors of the rainbow.
Name something you love (or greatly admire/appreciate) for all six major colors of the rainbow! (Sorry indigo, you’re just blue-purple.  Hot pink?  You’re too flashy!) …

Red – apples 🍎

orange – sunsets 🌇

yellow – flowers 🌻

green – trees 🌲

blue – sky 🔷

purple – fabrics? 🟣

If you were to open the world’s most accurate fortune cookie, what would your fortune inside it read? This one that I actually got from a fortune cookie one time.

Tap into your imagination, it provides interesting results

*****************************
Santa’s tired of people leaving him out cookies and milk on Christmas Eve night!  If you really wanted to get on Santa’s good side, what would you leave out for him to eat/drink instead? (This question applies whether you celebrate Christmas or not.  It’s just for fun, so imagination?  Welcome!  )

Coffee in a to-go cup, and peanut butter crackers

1. What is rolling stock  … It describes what happens in certain car racing venues like Stock Car Racing. They all roll around the track.

2. What is a rolling deck …This is what happens in Vegas at the gaming tables. They ‘roll’ or change to a new deck of cards after each game.

3. What is role play … haha! When you have a food fight at the table and throw the yeast rolls at each other.

4. What is ‘on a roll’ … A lot of things can be on a bread roll – hamburger meat, deli meat, cheese, vegetables, pretty much anything you want to put on a roll.

5. What does a rolling stone gather? … A Rolling Stone gathers a lot of money.

6. What is a rolling boil … It’s the latest dance – you start out moving slow, and then it gets faster with the music.

What are some red flags to watch out for in daily life?  … When you’re driving along and you see a truck with a long load, there is usually a red flag attached. You should watch out for that and not run into them.

What obstacles would you include in the ‘world’s most amazing obstacle course”? … To just stand absolutely still for a period of time, say 15 minutes. You can breathe and blink, etc. but you must not move your arms or legs or sway back and forth, or look all around. This would be impossible for me, because I cannot sit or stand still without fidgeting!

Who is the best movie or book villain in your opinion?  (‘book’ is included because some folks don’t watch movies) … So many awful ones to pick from. Maybe those two guys in the movie ‘Silence of the Lambs’. – Hannibel Lecter and Buffalo Bill.

What, in your opinion, is the most beautiful/handsome part of your face? (no dissing yourself please, we’re all beautiful/handsome!) ,,, Guess my eyes if I have to say something. I like the color – green. For a long time I didn’t like my nose, but it’s a kind of inherited ? kind, as my gran-dad and my dad had the same. I guess I like it okay now, as it seems to show some of my Native American ancestry.


GRATITUDE SECTION  🦃🕊

Next week on Thursday, Americans celebrate Thanksgiving.   What are some foods you enjoy for your festive celebration dinners?  (Doesn’t have to be Thanksgiving, as I realize the whole world isn’t participating in ‘our’ holiday) … When the kids were little we always had the traditional Thanksgiving meals of turkey, dressing, and all the side dishes, plus a desert or two. Later on we sometimes did this, but sometimes just regular whatever we felt like eating that day as usual. Lately we two just have a turkey TV dinner. It’s okay, easy to fix. We aren’t that fond of turkey anyway.

No theme this week, so a bit of a nonsense lucky dip………..

1. Lucky dip is self explanatory when it comes to gifts, but how did it originate? …

This got started when someone dipped a chip into some dip and it came out clean with nobody’s crumbs left in there.

2. Why is seven considered a lucky number? …

Sometimes it’s lucky and sometimes not. I’d say more unlucky. Well there are 7 days in a week, okay. Then there’s 7 years bad luck if you break a mirror. It’s all in how you look at # 7.

3. Why is thirteen considered unlucky?

It’s an odd number and has no counterpart match. You don’t want to be the 13th anything.

4. Why do they say elephants never forget?

Probably I think the bigger the head the bigger the brain and the bigger/better memory.

5. How did slippers get so called?

It was the first word they called those little burgers, but no one liked it, so they changed it to sliders.

6. What are the doldrums?

Doldrums are just some bottle of really old rum – probably turned poison by now.

7. Do igloos have central heating?

They weren’t able to get central heating where they lived. They didn’t live in the Central Time Zone.

8. What was a jamboree bag?

A cute word for a scary thing that is needed. It’s really a ‘bug out’ bag for getting out of Dodge when disaster strikes.

9. What were blackjacks?

They were just dark colored donkeys and burros.

10. Little Boy Blue blew what exactly?

Little Boy Blue blew blue bubblegum bubbles.
