My Blog List

Wednesday, April 15, 2015


     Today being Wednesday means that it's time for another Wednesday Hodgepodge. Thank you Joyce for another fun set of posers. I urge you all to join in and participate. You'll be surprised how much fun it is and what you'll learn about yourself as we get to know a little about you.

1. Speaking of April 15th...what's the most 'taxing' thing you've done recently?
     Doing all that needs to get done this time of year AND keep up with the A to Z Blog Challenge.

2. When did you last take a taxi somewhere and where was that somewhere?
     I cannot remember the last time that I was in a taxi cab.

3. What's something you can do today that you couldn't do a year ago?
     I could not say I'm 61 years old. I could not say I've been retired for three years.

4. How often is chicken (in some form or fashion) on your menu at home? Which of the following would you most like to see on your table tonight...a chicken salad sandwich, your mom's fried chicken, a Chick-fil-A meal, Cracker Barrel's chicken n' dumplings, a roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings, or 'hold the chicken, I'm a vegetarian'...?
      We usually have chicken once or twice per week. I would love to have the roast chicken dinner with all the trimmings.

5. What was your favorite television program when you were a kid? What characters do you remember the most?
       I liked "The Rifleman" starring Chuck Connors in the title role. I remember the grizzled old town sheriff, Micah Torrance who was best friends with the title character, Lucas McCain. I can still catch it on reruns.
6. What was the last piece of 'art' you made?
     I colored a picture in a coloring book, Curious George, I think. 

7. What frustrates you most about the Internet?
      Sites loading painfully slow or not at all!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
      Today is "L" day at the "A" to "Z" Blogging Challenge. My theme is Rock and Roll groups and solo artists over the years. Today I wrote about Lesley Gore of "It's My Party" fame and the group Lynyrd Skynyrd. 
     Lesley Gore sadly died from lung cancer this past February. In 1977 several members of Lynyrd Skynyrd died in a plane crash. The remaining members were seriously injured. However, like the Phoenix of mythology the band rose from the ashes when the surviving members reformed the band in 1987. They have been rocking on ever since.
     On a personal note, my beloved SWMBO will be having surgery on her knee this morning. So, if you are so disposed we would appreciate your prayers on her behalf. Thanks in advance!


  1. Prayers lifted for your wife and her surgical team. Please let us know how it goes.

  2. My brother was big into the Rifleman : ) I will certainly be praying for your sweet wife today! Take care.

  3. Hope your wife's surgery went well. You will be her charge nurse, I assume.

  4. For some reason, your answers wouldn't show up on my computer today. They were so faint, I couldn't read them at all, with the exception of your random thought.
    I hope all went well with SWMBO's knee surgery.
