Do you ever sit on a park bench for more than ten minutes?

As far as I know we don’t have park benches in any park I’ve seen. That’s not saying much, as I don’t go to any parks. We only have one large park, Mackenzie State Park. There’s not much there. There’s the amusement park in the park, and prairie dog town, and a golf course. A tiny stream, a small branch of the Brazos river, runs through it. There’s some trees, but not really that many, as a storm decimated most of them a few years back. Any other area that might be called a park, is just some space around our many playa lakes. I’ve not really seen any benches anywhere. That’s not to say there aren’t any, as maybe there are. Anyway, to finally answer the question…no, I don’t sit on any park benches, for any length of time.

When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles, turn on the flashlight or use your cell phone for light?

In a storm, I get my flashlight handy, my battery radio, and then I light a bunch of candles. It’s nice.

Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?

At this point, I’d take the $10,000 for my own use. We can sure use it. It would be nice to be able to have plenty of money to give away to others, but I don’t see that happening.

Would you rather take a 2 week vacation with an organized tour or take a cruise of your choice?

Neither one would I be interested in these days. Two weeks away from home is too long. First, we’d have to find someone to come feed and care for our cat, and feed the outside cats and birds. Then, I wouldn’t want an organized tour, having to go and do things that the tour people think would be good. I’d rather be on my/our own to find our own fun. Also, I’m not into being around a lot of people. As for the cruise…absolutely not, for all the same reasons, and then …have you heard about all the disasters that happen to cruises? There can be all kinds of illnesses, people falling or pushed overboard, disappearances, pirates, sinking of the ship, stranded somewhere, and besides, there are fish out there in the water! Oh no…never, ever!

Did you like swinging as a child? Do you still get excited when you see a swing?

I loved to swing! I had a swing set in the back yard. Now, not interested.

What is the most important thing that you ever learned ? (I bet it’s not something you learned in school)

I have no idea. Every day we learn something new, and think it is the most important thing ever, then we learn something else. We probably learn the most during our toddler years, such as walking, talking, and potty training. These will be with you for life, so they are important to learn early. 🙂

Where do you eat breakfast?

I eat breakfast in the living room, on the couch, at a TV tray in front of me, while watching TV or reading a book.

Given the choice of anyone in the world, whom would you want have a evening with?

My whole family.

If you could be a tree or plant, what would you be?

A pine tree, because they smell really good, or a weeping willow tree, because they are so pretty and graceful.

Was school easy or difficult for you? How so?

It seemed like all my school years were easy. I don’t remember many problems with my classes, homework, or grades. That is, all except math and P.E. Those were awful, and my grades were very bad. I got along well with the teachers, and I had some friends to hang out with. In fact, I’m still in contact with a lot of them, even as far back as elementary school.

List some of your favorite types of animals.

Cats, dogs, birds, rodents, reptiles, insects, spiders, tigers, giraffes

What is your favorite large city you have been to? What is the one thing you remember most?

Tokyo, Japan,  Nuremberg, Germany,Austin, TX, Kansas City, and Columbia MO

Tokyo, because it is so vastly different culturally. So many new things to see and do.

Nuremberg, because it is so interesting to see where history happened, the castle, the cobblestone streets, the food.

Austin, because like they say, ‘keep Austin weird’. There are lots of things to do there, interesting shops, and great places to eat.

KC and Columbia MO, because my daughter & family lived both places, and visiting is fun with lots to do and see with them.

If you had to move to a country besides the one you currently live in, where would you move and why? 

I have moved and lived in other countries, but nothing beats coming back home to the USA. If I had to according to the question posed today, I’d say Sweden, Canada, or Australia. I’ve never been to these countries, but for some reason I’m drawn to Sweden, Canada sounds nice, especially BC on the western coast, (thanks for all the wonderful descriptions, Emily) , and Australia because it has some interesting animals that we don’t have here.

What color would you like your bedroom to be?

I only have plain old white walls in this house, and it’s boring. I’d like to paint huge wall sized murals in every room, to depict a different culture in each. For the bedroom, I’d want a jungle scene, with lots of green plants, and also all kinds of animals peeking out of the greenery. The other rooms would be of a Mexican Fiesta, and a Japanese motif.

What makes you Happy? Make a list of things in your life that bring you joy.

  • my family
  • my cat
  • my writing
  • my art
  • reading
  • shopping yard sales
  • rainy/stormy days

What is your favorite outdoor activity?

I don’t do outdoor activities. It’s too hot to be out there in the summer, and too cold for me in the winter. I do like the days of fall, when we have some. I love to see the leaves fall from our one tree. There must be thousands of them, all turned yellow, making a beautiful leafy carpet on the ground. I’ve sat out there letting them fall all around me.

In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

Most always I like to be the passenger. That way I can look out the windows and daydream, take photos, and not have to watch out for crazy drivers getting in my way.

If you could have three wishes granted for you alone, what would they be?

I know none of these will happen, but it’s nice to think about. 🙂

***

More wishes, so I could include other people in what I wish for.

Better health.

Money.

Now, for more frivolous things to wish for:

Have someone come in and clean my house, sort out all my stuff, get it all organized.

Go back in the time machine to the year I was about 25, but still have my family and knowledge I have now.

SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2016 – WEEK # 19 sywbanner

Today we have another Share Your World, with questions from Cee, and answers from me! It’s fun, and if you want to join in, just click below to find out the particulars.

Share Your World – 2016 Week 19

~

Q1 – You win a pet monkey, but this isn’t just any old monkey. It can do one trick for you…whenever you want, from getting a pop out of the fridge, to washing your hair. What would be the trick?

First of all, I do not like monkeys of any sort. I wouldn’t want a monkey. Monkeys belong in the wild, not in someone’s house doing tricks. However, if a fairy, or elf, or unicorn, or something came by to do a trick, they could clean my house for me. They could wave a magic wand, or say some silly words, then be on their way.

Q2 – What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?

The day is almost over, and I didn’t do anything caring for myself, so far. I ate my breakfast, and lunch, and am fixin’ to eat my supper. I will probably use the heating pad on my back. I always read a book while I’m eating, so that’s caring, I suppose.

Q3 – What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

Black. Most everything I have is black. I have a dark blue tie dyed top I wear a lot, too. That top you see in my photo of me, the sky blue one is tie dyed, but that’s not the one. I don’t actually wear that one much anymore. I like it though, but it seems it shrunk and is too short. I like long tailed shirts.

Q4 – Complete this sentence: When I travel, I love to…

I love to take my time. I hate getting in a rush to get anywhere. I like to stop and look at stuff along the way, and take a picture of whatever it is. I like to stop and people watch. I like to just meander along. Besides, my foot is always hurting, so I limp all the time, and I’d rather go slow. …Oh, you mean ‘travel’ travel…like far away? Well, I like my suitcase to come along for the trip, and not go wandering off to some exotic place, or to never-never to be seen land, like it almost did on our last far away trip. Man, it took a vacation from us that time…didn’t come home for a whole week!!

That’s all for now! Hope you got a laugh or two from my answers!

SHARE YOUR WORLD … WEEK # 52sywbanner

Here we go with another fun Share Your World, question and answer post, brought to you by Cee! Always fun to do these. 🙂 Find more challenges and posts here

~

Q1 – Tell how you are feeling today in the form of a weather report (for example, partly cloudy, sunny with a chance for showers, etc.)

The doldrums have set in, being a period of listlessness and inactivity. As a result of the blizzard we’ve had, we have been confined to the house since Saturday evening. We are not used to this, so pretty much the whole city has been shut down.

Q2 – What is most memorable about your high school years?

I had good high school days, with the usual studies, friends, and activities. One thing that seems a bit out dated now, was that girls were not allowed to wear any type of jeans, pants, slacks, etc. Dresses or skirts only were allowed, and the hemline had to be to the middle of our knees. This rule was changed to allow pants, the year After I graduated. 😦

I went one year to one high school, the remaining 2 years were at a newly built school. Those of us attending the first year of the new school were able to vote on everything, such as sports teams names, colors associated with the school, emblems, class ring designs, and lots of other things. That was pretty cool (we chose blue and silver for the colors)

The first high school I went to was the oldest one in the city, and it was/is haunted. That’s the best part I remember about it!

Q3 – Have you ever owned a rock, pet rock, or gem that is not jewelry?

I love all kinds of stones, gems, rocks, and crystals. I tend to collect them everywhere I go, and even friends bring us some, such as river rocks, petrified wood, pretty ones, odd ones, big and little ones. I love studying about the meanings of them, and what properties they have. I’ve also painted on rocks from time to time which is fun to do.

Q4 – Complete this sentence … I like watching…

I like watching lots of things. The ever changing sky, the sunrises and sunsets, the stars, moon, planets, are favorites to watch, either with or without my telescope. I love watching my cats, and the birds at the feeder. I like watching people everywhere I go, and make up stories about them in my thoughts. Best of all I love watching my grand-kids grow and learn. They are amazing! 🙂

Q5 – What are you grateful for in the past week, and what are you looking forward to coming up?

I’m happy we got to go visit my daughter and family for Christmas. We had a wonderful time. I’m grateful we made it back home safely, because the weather was so horrible…we went through torrential rains, tornado warnings, sleet, and snow. I’m looking forward to the snow melting, so we can get out of the house and do things around town again.

SHARE YOUR WORLD – # 48sywbanner

Here’s this week’s questions posed by Cee at Share Your World and my answers. There are lots of fun challenges to choose from there!

~

Q1 – Are you a hugger or non-hugger?

I am a hugger. I like giving and receiving hugs. Our family has always been like that. We hug hello, then again when we say good-bye, all around for everyone. Sometimes more than one hug, and even if we just met someone. I’ve never had anyone say they’d rather not. If they did, I wouldn’t, but it’s just a way of being friendly.

Q2 – What’s your favorite topping on pizza?

Besides cheese, I need pepperoni, mushrooms, and onions. I’ll eat the ones with lots of other things on there, except sausage or hamburger…don’t like those, so will pick those parts off.

Q3 – If you were the original designer of one existing corporate logo, which one would you select?

Not sure if this is corporate or not, but I wish I’d have designed the Peace sign. It is simple, recognizable all over the world, and means so much. Looking up who the actual designer was, I found it was in 1958, that a British designer, Gerald Holtom, was asked to design a logo for the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament (CND). He looked at the semaphore alphabet letters for N and D, and it looked like what we now know as the peace sign.

Q4 – Complete this sentence: Where I can seek my solace is…

Home, my home, with my family, wherever that may be. We’ve lived here and there around the world, and we come and go, but we always come back home, where we can relax, and be ourselves around our loved ones.

SHARE YOUR WORLD … WEEK # 33sywbanner

http://ceenphotography.com/2015/08/17/share-your-world

This week’s questions for Share Your World from Cee, are …

  1. What are some words that just make you smile?

These two words make me smile every single time… “Grammy” and “Bop” …these are what my grandchildren call me.

If I hear someone say, “Let’s go to some yard sales/garage sales” …I smile, because I love going.

It never fails to make me laugh when I see bloopers, misprints, and malapropisms in print.

2.  You’re given $500,000 tax free (any currency). What do you spend it on?

I’d share with my kids, buy a new house (ours needs so much work, it would be easier to start over with a new one), and a car, because I don’t have one at the moment.

3. What subject would you like to study in depth, if given the time to do so.?

Astronomy…anything to do with space, stars, planets, the sky, clouds, weather, alien beings, time warps, and anything mysterious and otherworldly.

Guitar Lessons…I want to learn to play so much…and I practice all the time, but can’t seem to progress. So, maybe lessons would help?

4. Would you rather be stuck in a small plane with bad turbulence for 2 hours, or be a passenger in a car, racing the Daytona 500?

Definitely in a plane…I love to fly…as long as I can be sure we wouldn’t crash, the turbulence would just be an exciting bit of fun for a little while.  And, I don’t like driving, or riding in a car that is going fast, at all, plus going around in a circle for a long time would make me too dizzy.

5. Bonus Queston: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up/

From last week, I’m happy I managed to figure out how to put a picture on my blog from my iphone. At least it worked the  one time I tried it. Knock wood, that I remember how to do it again. For the upcoming week… rain chances again! I never get tired of it raining, since we usually have so little.
