Wednesday... Hodgepodge time..

 1. What's something you miss about the 80's? If you're too young to miss the 80's how about the 90's?
I miss the 80's HAIR BANDS!!!!  ... it was rock... but understandable rock...
I think 'rock' of today bites.  Its either so hard that you cant even understand the words & its just someone screaming... or its so 'moody' - the "Nirvana" type of mood thats just not rock.
Def Lepard, Motley Crue, Bon Jovi, Poison, Survivor, White Snake... some good stuff
I could listen to Hair Band Rock Ballads all day long too
 I also miss mixed tapes, blue eye liner, side ponytails & Aqua Net bangs ... you had to be there to appreciate that stuff...

2. Do you have a library card? If so, how often do you visit?

My mom used to take me to the library all the time when I was little - I LOVED it - like a little Matilda - but opposite of the parents who were crazy & didnt want their child to read.  But the same with the little girl who loved the read.

Now?  I just got a library card not too long ago - but have only been once.  I just find it too convenient to buy the books on Amazon & have them delivered.  My checking account would probably be happier if I went to the library more.

And now with my Kindle?  I dont even have to wait for deliveries.. instantly to my e-reader.  Inventions are GOOD!

3. What's the secret to success?

Attitude & Acceptance.

4. This is National Backyard Games week...what's your favorite backyard game?
First of all, it would have to be the Front Yard games for me... or else we're tromping in dog poop... not fun makings for any kind of game.  Unless its a "Fear Factor" kind of game...
But we're Southern Folk & that brings the game of Corn Hole.. Ricky's really good that game. Me?  With my screwed up shoulder?  I cant toss anything anymore.  My backyard - or front yard - game of choice?  Reading in my rocking chair... is there an Olympic event for that?  
5. If I dropped by today what would I find on your coffee table?
Is it bad I dont have a coffee table?  What constitues a coffee table?  Is that a side table - I do have one of those... but when I think of coffee table - I think of 'in the middle of the room, in front of the couch' thing.  Nope - dont have one.
All my other tables, if we're counting those, in the foyer, in the corner of the living room, by the couch... only thing on them are pictures... & lamps...
a simple gal... with simple tables
6.  Do you own a bicycle? When was the last time you rode a bicycle? Is that something you enjoy?
Yes - we do own a bike..
I talked about this not too long ago.... I cant ride them because my husband put them out of reach from me.
Seriously!! He put them up in the rafters of the garage so I CANT ride them.
With our country roads, he said he knows I'll either a.) get hit by a car on the country roads or b.) come flying down the hills & fall & bust my head or c.) DIE going up the country hills...
So I have a Spinning Bike... does that count?  & No - I dont enjoy it.  My butt hurts WAY too bad everytime I sit on it...
7. What's your favorite cheese?
Mmmm... cheese.... mmmmm....
I love Hot Pepper cheese... I love mozzerella... I love cheddar... my fav probably will be Swiss cheese though. 
But trying to go Vegan, I've been buying Vegan Cheese made from soy... its not as bad as you may think... but my heart still goes out to Swiss...
8. Insert your own random thought here.
So I found the answer to my question yesterday about Instagram...
There's a site - that will show you your friends pictures from Instagram & let you find others & follow them as well...
Its like a Facebook status or mini blog, but in pictures - get to see people's lives in action - love that


  1. Corn hole is definitely a southern don't see it in NJ but we spend a lot of time south of the Mason Dixon so know the game well.

    Our bikes are in the rafters too. My hubs probably had similar thinking and he's probably right : )

  2. When you wrote hair bands, at first I thought you were referring to an accessory...

    Library? I love the library. I do not buy books. 1) They are too expensive, and 2) libraries are a form of recycling. Read the book and send it on.

    You can get e books from most libraries now...

  3. I'm totally embarrassed to admit this, but I have no idea what Corn Hole is and I've lived in the South my entire life! What's up with that? Oh, you know how much I love the 80's...disco, rock, you name it! I think it was some of the best music EVER!

  4. I don't have a coffee table either ... the last thing I need is another surface to collect stuff. I do have a couple of end tables, but at least the stuff that they collect is useful stuff ... my sewing supplies, Kindle, TV remote, etc. ;-)

  5. Cornhole is fun!. That's probably that last backyard game I played. Oh and we played it in the front yard too. lol

  6. I miss the big hair too!

  7. April: Corn hole started out as a college thing in the south. I learned of it from my daughters - and yes, I think it was especially fun when drinking was involved. But, now it's played on the beach and just about anywhere.

  8. I'm not sure that our parents would have agreed that Hair Bands were understandable, but ... they were still great fun. :)

  9. Never heard of corn hole.. Wow.. Love cheese also.. I hope you enjoy your day..

  10. I agree on the bands and the library card. I think libraries will be obsolete some day. :-( LOVE the blurb on success. Very good. I just wrote on another blog that I don't know what cornhole is. I was born in IN, grew up in MD, am now in FL. I've seen a cornhole...I don't think. :-)

  11. Your hubby is too funny! =P And looove that quote on success! love it!

  12. Don't have a coffee table, either. Enjoy playing corn hole.

  13. I liked the Big Hair Bands too. I was going to put blue eyeliner for my answer too along with #44 lipgloss. It was a light frosty pink color. Have a great week :)
