Wednesday's Hodgepodge

Visit Joyce and join the fun!

1. What's one thing that's still the same about you as when you were young?

I can't think of much for this answer but maybe I should have asked my family.  I still have a streak of stubbornness in me although I am working on that ;)

2. What's more important-history or science? Why?

History, because it we don't learn from our mistakes we will repeat them.

3. Lima, kidney, string, garbanzo, black or pinto-your favorite bean?

String beans are my favorite.  I don't mind black beans on my nachos or in my enchiladas.

4. What's something people come to your town to do?

To go to the beach or go boating.  There are quite a few town beaches as well as a state one here.  We also have a spot to launch boats from which is usually busy.  

5. When was the last time you were in a meeting? Sum it up for us in five words or less. 

A few weeks ago I was at our church's weekly prayer meeting.  I've missed it the past few weeks since we were on vacation but look forward to going again.  "Praising and petitioning our God."

6. What special event would you like a VIP pass to attend?

The Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.  I think I would like to view the floats from an office window instead of with the crowds on the street.  Since I haven't had that opportunity yet, I'll watch it on TV.

7. What's one piece of advice you'd give a writer?

Be careful what you write.  Once the words are out there you can't take them back.  

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I have missed playing along with the Hodgepodge the past few weeks.  We were supposed to leave for vacation the day after Labor Day but our car was still in the repair shop.  I was hit by an oil truck while at a stop sign and the back window shattered in as well as the whole back hatch being crashed in.  Thankfully no one was seriously injured.  It did aggravate my previous neck problems so I am trying to get to the chiropractor regularly.  Our car was ready on Wednesday evening so we were able to leave Thursday.  We drove down to Florida and stopped along the way there and back to see family and friends.  We were gone for two weeks.  It was a great time of rest for me and the whole family had a wonderful time.  We returned and jumped right into our fall routine.  There's nothing like autumn in NY :)



  1. We answered #2 the same. ;-)

    Glad that your trip to Florida was a great one - worth the wait, eh?

  2. Beloved and I took an 8-day bus tour of New England's autumn leaves a few years ago. It was beautiful and I loved every minute of it. Here in Colorado we have an abundance of the yellows and golds in the Aspens, and not as much of the oranges and reds.

    Take good care of your neck -- soooo sorry that happened to you. I have a whiplash problem as well, so you have my sympathy.

  3. We are headed to Florida in a month. Vacations are wonderful. Glad you finally got yours.

  4. Great answer to #7! So true, whether one is writing a book, a blog, a letter, or a FB post!

  5. Ohhhh... Macy's Parade - that's a good one!!! I would want to sit right in the front box where they stop & do all the things for TV... put me in the box with Al Roker! I'll host the thing :)

  6. So glad no one was injured in your accident. I would love to experience autumn in NY. Fall and Spring are my favorite seasons, and I just bet the scent of Fall there is wonderful.

  7. The Macy's parade ... great answer!! :) ME TOO! If only I'd thought of that! :)

  8. Hi, I'm linking up from Joyce's page on the Hodgepodge. I enjoyed reading your answers. Glad to hear nobody was seriously hurt in your car crash :)

  9. So sorry about your accident-bet that was scary! I'd like to see the parade from a nice apartment (with heat). I think unless you're one of the crazies who line up in the middle of the night, you get a better view on TV.

  10. So sorry to hear about your car accident. That is terrible. Glad to hear about your vacation- sounds great. And I am so with you on the parade. I would love to go and take the kids.

  11. Most everyone I read today liked string beans, I like them too and I especially love black beans. Your right, the Macy's Thanksgiving Parade would be awesome to attend.

  12. Well, I have missed you and so sorry about your accident. Glad to know you are going to a Chiropractor. I could not make it without mine.

    Good answer to #2.

    Happy rest of the week!

  13. I just used that saying about history to my son. I too would love to have VIP and see the parade.
    Oh no! a sorry..
    I hope your home schooling is going well this year and you are all in good health!
