The folks at This Side of the Pond have a meme called Wednesday Hodgepodge. Here is my entry for today ...
- At what age did you feel like a 'grown-up'? What keeps you young now?
Two answers: When I raised my hand and was sworn in to the US Army. And when the eye doctor told my first wife Ellen that she was going blind. These days my grandkids keep me young. Sort of. Sometimes they make me feel old. ツ
- When did you last buy a vehicle? Was this by design or because you had no other option? Was the car/truck purchased for your own personal use or was it bought for someone else to drive? On a scale of 1-10 (with 10 being delightful and 1 being 'pass the Excedrin') how would you rate the experience?
In January 2008 I traded my great SUV in on a wheelchair minivan. It was a depressing purchase as we had no other option - except for color and features. I give the buying experience a 2 but these days I see it more as a 7.
- Corn bread, corn chips, corn pudding, corn on the cob, cornflakes, corn chowder-your favorite of the corn-y foods listed? What needs to be served alongside your selection?
KC Cheesy Corn, corn on the cob and corn out of a freezer bag. Nothing beats a slab of KC ribs with a side of Cheesy Corn! Add a side of KC BBQ Beans and you have a meal!
- What's something in your life that regularly requires you to 'put your thinking cap on'?
Trying understand where a person is coming from. Not making assumptions about their motives.
Trying to walk a few proverbial blocks in their shoes.
- Share a favorite movie set in a school or classroom, or whose theme relates to school days in some way.
Both "To Sir With Love" and Grease come to mind.
- Reading, writing, and 'rithmatic' are commonly referred to as the three R's. What are the 3 R's in your life right now?
Reading blogs, developing Relationships and walking to Restaurants close to our loft.
- What's something you've learned or tried recently you can say was as 'easy as ABC'?
Learning about the affects of carbohydrates on my body. Putting my learning to use and eating less carbs.
- Insert your own random thought here.
"Only the mediocre are at their best every day."
