If It Weren't For the Hodgepodge ...

... I'd probably have no posts at all! Life is just rushing by too fast in these busy days of VBS and pre-wedding and trip-planning. But I am taking a moment to pause for Hodgepodge Identification. Click on the link and come on in. The water's fine!

1. Do you and your family enjoy camping? What do you enjoy most/like the least when it comes to family camping? When was the last time you camped?
My family enjoys camping. They are all boys. They love nothing better than to rough it in the wilderness with not even the basic necessities of life. Now me? I like necessities. And quite a few luxuries as well. My idea of roughing it is staying in a Motel 6.

2. Did you attend a summer camp when you were a kid? Is that a happy or not so happy memory?
No summer camp for me. My two older sisters went one year. I heard horror stories about initiation and decided I was too civilized for that kind of behavior. Plus, I liked luxuries when I was a kid, too. An un-airconditioned cabin shared with many strangers was not my idea of a good time.

3. Over the course of your life, what have you probably spent more time pondering than anything else?
Whether or not I'm doing this thing (life) right or not. I figure I'm running about fifty-fifty.

 4. Which of the seven natural wonders of the world would you most like to see? There are many lists of 'wonders' but this is the standard natural wonder list-Mount Everest, The Great Barrier Reef, The Grand Canyon, Victoria Falls, The Harbor of Rio de Janerio, Paricutan Volcano and The Northern Lights.
I've seen the Grand Canyon and the Northern Lights (awesome, both.) I think I'd like to see the Great Barrier Reef and Victoria Falls. I'd like both of those to be part of a terrific vacation package that includes first class travel and five-star accomodations. Hey, I said I like luxuries!

5. What was your first real job?
I worked for an eye doctor who owned a travel agency on the side. I organized airline tickets into numerical order by hand every week, and it wasn't as exciting as it sounds, so don't be jealous.

6. Lemonade or Sweet tea...which do you prefer on a hot summer day?
I do not like iced tea, sweet or not, which is why I can never be a true southerner. (According to a southern friend of mine.) I like lemonade, but I want it fresh squeezed with lots of sweetness, lots of bite and lots if ice. Hmm, kind of like me! : )

7. What is something that always brings a smile to your face?
A comment on my blog. (Not that I'm hinting, or anything.)

8. Insert your own random thought here.
When you say, "It's just that kind of a day," do you usually mean that as a good thing or a bad thing?


  1. #8-I think it leans toward the bad. I would love a trip to Victoria Falls...I don't want to camp there : ) I've left a comment so I guess I've made your day, right?

  2. Comment.

    And to the answer to #8 is yes.

  3. I think it means the bad kind. I agree 100% on all the luxuries. No camping for me.

  4. Look!
    I'm commenting!
    Are you smiling?
    Are you?
    Are you?


Well don't just stand there! Say something! : )
