Retirement Hodgepodge

Not sure why I miss posting on Wednesday Hodgepodge so much. I shared these at Debbie's place earlier this week and thought I would post them here today.
  1. It's National Bike you own a bicycle? When did you last ride a bike?
    Been a really long time since I got on a bike - unless you count the stationary one that I sold a few years ago. In my youth I rode my English Racer all over Staten Island.
  2. What's something you learned in school that wasn't part of the curriculum?
    I liked what my friend Debbie said about people not always bring who they say they are. School can often bring out the best and worst in us.
  3. What's a food you've never tried, but want to try? A food you've tried and will never try again?
    I am sure that there is a delicacy out there that I should try but simply cannot think of one.
    I will probably never east oysters even though I like clams and mussels.
  4. Have you been more demanding on yourself lately or less?
    Retirement has allowed me to slack off and give myself needed breaks.
  5. Who is your favorite book, movie, or TV show villain?
    Hard to beat the Wicked Witch from The Wizard of Oz. Mostly I like my villains to be caricatures but I did think Heath Ledger was great as the Joker.
  6. How concerned are you about identity theft?
    We have insurance that protects us as much as one can be protected.
  7. Would you rather have an ordinary home in an extraordinary place or an extraordinary home in an ordinary place?
    Ordinary home in an extraordinary place.
  8. Insert your own random thought here.
    My grandchildren are such a source of great joy. Watching them grow (now 11 and 9) into wonderful people with unique personalities is such a blessing.
Feel free to share how you might answer all or some of the questions. Inquiring minds want to know.


  1. Thanks for playing along. You should hook it up with Joyce's post! Have a great weekend.
