A Moving Hodgepodge



The folks at This Side of the Pond have a meme called Wednesday Hodgepodge. Here is my entry for today ...

1. What's something you're looking forward to in the month of June?
Twenty years ago Ann and I were married. Five years ago we moved to a loft in downtown KC. I am looking forward to celebrating these times of new life.
2. In what way have you come full circle?
I grew up in New York City and was able to walk to stores from my house.
Since moving, I am able to do that again.
3. Lonely Planet lists 10 spots in America [Queens NY, Western South Dakota, New Orleans, Colorado River Region, North Conway NH, Indianapolis, Greenville SC, Oakland, Duluth MN, and the Mount Shasta Region CA] you should see in 2015 and the reasons why. How many on the list have you seen? Which one on the list would you most like to see?
Loved New Orleans and have been there twice. Think I visited Queens a few times in my earlier years. Have stayed in Indianapolis on my way to New Jersey. Would not mind going back to New Orleans.
4. A song that describes your mood right now?
Wasted Days and Wasted Nights ツ
5. Strawberry ice cream, strawberry short cake, strawberry pie, or strawberries right off the vine...your favorite?
Like them all but I like Strawberry Shortcake the most.
6. Aesop's birthday is celebrated on June 4th, although there is some disagreement as to whether or not that's accurate, or if he was even a real person. Regardless, the name Aesop is associated to this day with many well known fables. Which of the following best applies to something in your life right now? The Tortoise and the Hare (Slow and Steady wins the race), The Ant and the Grasshopper (Be prepared), The Fox and the Goat (Look before you leap) or The Crow and the Pitcher (Necessity is the mother of invention)?
Like the Tortoise, this slowpoke is just wanting to finish the race.
7. The answer is yes...what's the question?
Reminds me of Jeopardy. So the question is "Do you and Ann watch Alex Trebek?"
8. Insert your own random thought here.
"We don't have to agree on anything to be kind to one another."
Thanks for reading. Join the fun at This Side of the Pond.

  1. "We don't have to agree on anything to be kind to one another." I LOVE that quote and wish more people approached relationships this way. Is the quote yours, or who said it first?

    Popping by from the Hodgepodge :)

    1. Thanks Marla. It has been fun living a few blocks from the farmer's market, coffee shops, the library, a bunch of restaurants and a grocery store.

  4. I've never been to KC, but I'm a fan of Jack Stack BBQ : ) We like Jeopardy here too. I wanted to try the onine test this year, but time got away from me. I'm sure I wouldn't make it to the show, but I'd enjoy taking the test I think. Love that quote at the end! We've forgotten that in 2015.

    1. Jack Stack just took third in a national BBQ poll Joyce. Two other KC BBQ joints took first and fifth. Our proverbial doors are always open if you get this far west. :)

  5. Love your random thought :) And I've always wanted to live in a city and walk to things. I've been in suburbs my whole life.
