Random Dozen

Ohhh - one of my favorite subjects - SPRING... let's look at the dozen questions this week.

1.  What is your favorite sign of Spring?
When the trees start to get their bloom & that pretty bright color starts coming out - greens, & pinks, whites & purples... ahhh - color back in our lives!!

2. Did you remember to spring forward March 14th? If not, how did it impact your day?
Oh yeah... I remembered... & I was tired.  I had to be at church at 8 am... which when you spring forward, makes the time really 7 am....that was one long day at church... lots of yawning...

3. If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what vegetable would you plant in a garden this year?
Peppers... I love peppers... are they easy to grow?  I'm thinking about doing some container gardening - can I do that with peppers?  I've gotta look into that...

4. If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what fruit would you plant?
Bananas - smoothies, banana bread, PB & bananas... good for running too...

5. What is your least favorite insect?
Does someone HAVE a favorite insect?  Hmmm.... I dont mind insects - as long as they arent in MASS doses.  Like ants in bunches make me itch... (doesnt this picture make you want to start scratching?)

6. March 22 was World Water Day. To celebrate, here are some water questions. Do you drink bottled water? If so, what brand?
I do prefer bottled water, because our water from our tap tastes like something that you SHOULDNT drink.. nasty!  I like Nestle water... & even I really like the Kroger brand water.  I hate Aquafina & Evian... for some reason, the cheaper waters make me happy.  The more expensive ones have a funny taste to me.

7.  Have you ever been somewhere that it was not safe to drink the local water? If so, how did you handle that?.... my house - see the above answer!  :)  Well, OK, its SAFE here... but no, I havent been anywhere where its not SAFE... isnt that like Mexico or a 3rd world country?  You've all heard I dont like to fly - so you can imagine I havent been to any of those areas.

8.  How many glasses of water do you drink per day?
I drink usually at last 4-5... but trying to drink ONLY water during the day... not doing too well with that... but when I run or work out, I really down it...refreshing!

9. March 24 is the birthday of Harry Houdini. Have you ever watched a professional magic show? Share
Yep - seen David Copperfield a few times... A-MAZ-ING!!! When Ricky & I were dating, we had front row seats to him... & I actually CRIED in the show - it was so touching & beautiful with some of the tricks he does....And saw Lance Burton in Vegas.  He's a local guy who made it big so when we went there, we got front row seats & we even got to talk to him during the show.  Pretty cool... I was all gabby & talking - Ricky was hunkering down in his seat, embarassed...

10.  Have you ever been a participant in a professional magic show (up on stage!)?

Nope... would be too afraid I'd mess it up...would love the secret of it all though...

11.  March 24 is also the birthday of Steve McQueen and Clyde Barrow. Do you like Westerns or gangster movies? If so, what is your favorite?
I dont even know who Steve McQueen & Clyde Barrow are!!!  So that probably tells you if I like Westerns... I thought Steve McQueen was a motorcycle guy?  I'm so confused...

12. (Really random) What U.S. state that you've never visited would you like to visit someday?
New York & head to New York City!!! Ricky said he would NEVER want to go there... but I would love to see a Broadway show there - the big city lights... anyone wanna go with me?

  1. Great List!
    NYC is great. Personally, I'd love to visit Seattle and visit the Pike Fish Market (I think that is what it is called) and watch them toss fish!

  2. you had me at banana bread; I swear I could eat it every MUST make it to NYC. Tell Ricky I said so :D

  3. my answer to number eight is basically zero.. yikes! i just can't give up my soda.

  4. Hmm, you made me think...

    I would love to visit any of the big cities (or little ones, really) in Texas. I've only driven through the panhandle, so it doesn't really count. I would love to experience the "bigness" of Texas.
