The folks at This Side of the Pond have a meme called Wednesday Hodgepodge. Here is my entry for today ...
Brings back a frightening time driving to the top of Pike's Peak in Colorado one summer. It began to snow and the road got slick as we got close to the top. The turn around was scary.2. Do you establish and maintain a strict budget in your household? What is one piece of financial advice you would offer someone just starting out on their own?
I have always had a budget and have tried to live within my means. I was able to retire early because I planned ahead. In life I have found that we either control our money or it controls us.3. Cherries-yay or nay? Cherry pie, cherry cola, black forest cake, or a scoop of Ben and Jerry's Cherries Garcia...pick one.
I like Cherry Pepsi but rarely drink pop anymore.4. Should you ever discuss religion or politics with people you don't know?
Love people first and earn the privilege of discussing your faith and your political views. Before that talk about the weather.5. When you take a road trip do you prefer to be the driver or the passenger? Where were you headed on your last road trip?
I do all of the driving in our ramp enabled bigfoot van. Last road trip was to Chicago when Ann had the stem cell transplant. Hoping to do a long road trip this Spring.6. If we peeked inside your closet, what color would we say is most prevalent?
Blue as in blue jeans. I did recently buy a brown corduroy sports jacket.7. Who's your favorite senior citizen and why are they special?
Ann's mom turns 97 this year. She is who I aspire to be. A godly person who has aged well. Though she has difficulty seeing, hearing and walking she stays positive and does not complain. She is an amazing woman of faith.8. Insert your own random thought here.
My pick to win the Oscar on Sunday is the Silver Linings Playbook. Lincoln will probably beat it out though. I rarely agree with Hollywood on such things.Let me know if you play along or how you might answer any of these.
