Love Hodgepodge Day... it means we're half way through the week!

1. What rule of life should never be broken?

There are rules of life? ... maybe someone should have told me before today!

If I had to make some up, it would look sorta like this:
* Dont pick your nose in public
* Watch out for panty lines
* Sing at least once a day
* Dance at least twice a day
... see, I could make up rules of life... I could write a book about it actually

2. What's your favorite family recipe?

My favorite was my grandma's dumplin's ... amazing... the recipe went with her I guess.  No one can do it the same.  I think she didnt write down an ingredient on purpose, so we'd all miss her cooking. 

I do love my my family's recipe of Hershey Pie... frozen chocolate heaven...

3.  Is the media manipulative?

Manipulative?  not sure... but I think they can be 'influential' ... (look at all these big words!)... but I think people hear what they want to hear, to be influenced.

So my answer is yes... & no... (I love when I'm so smart)

4. Hubs and I saw Skyfall last weekend...are you a fan of the Bond films? If so, who's your favorite Bond?

I've never been a Bond-Girl. 
I'm not much of an 'action' fan anyways. 
Never saw any of the Bourne Movies - didnt care for the Mission Impossible thing - didnt even see Eddie Murphy in the 48 hours movies.

I have only seen ONE Bond movie - & Roger Moore was in it, with Grace Jones.  (Ha... funny... I actually wrote Grace Slick & looked it up to see if I had the right Grace.  A Bond movie with Grace Slick may get my attention)

But I did always think Pierce Bronson would make a great Bond guy - he has the accent, had the looks... I dont know why he didnt last.

If Hugh Jackman was James Bond - I'd totally watch

5. What is one thing you hope people never say about you?

I hope someone never says, "That Rebecca Jo, she was in that horrible, terrifying, horrendous accident" ... yeah, I'd LOVE for someone to NEVER have to say that...

 6. What's a nearby tourist attraction you'd like to see, but haven't gotten around to visiting?
We have a local museum that I've not gotten around to visiting yet, but right now, it has a Princess Diana exhibit.

yes - her wedding gown is in there!

With some of her other dresses & tiaras...

I'm going to scream a little when I see this in person.

The exhibit ends in January - so I've got to make sure to get there before its over.

7. Where's your favorite tree?

I am a tree hugger... I love them all...

When we moved, I was so excited that we had a half acre with nothing but trees... One day, we came home from church & our neighbor had started clearing trees.  Dont know if he realized it or not, but he came over our property line & took down some of our trees.  I totally sat in the car & cried.  ... no really... I cried because our trees got chopped down.

yes - I'm the pereson who would chain myself to an old tree to try & not let someone chop it down. 

I think how long it took to grow to those heights, the history it has lived through... & men just knock it down with a quick flick of a chain saw...

Excuse me, I need to go outside & hug a tree right now.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Working on pictures for a family that I just took this past Sunday...

Gotta show this picture - I just love it... the kids were "hiding" from their parents around a fence.  The older sister was trying to hide her little brother.  Isnt this just the cutest?  I loved her arms around him... I especially love that little band aid on her finger.  The sure-sign-mark of being a kid.


  1. A very nice set of Hodgepodge answers. That is indeed a great picture. Have a great Thanksgiving!

  2. Grandma's dumplin's - oooh, yummy! My grandma made dinner rolls that were DELISH! My mom tried to get her recipe, but it was a cup of this (meaning a coffee cup ... but since she didn't have a set, who knew just which cup she was referring to) and a spoon of this (a spoon out of the drawer ... again no matched set of dinnerware, so who knew just which spoon she used). My mom never did replicate her recipe.

  3. Love the picture. My granddaughter 5 helped her little sister get dressed the other day and she was so proud.

  4. How can you not mention Daniel Craig or Sean Connery? I'm so torn between who is hotter. Why must my decisions in life be so difficult!!!
    I think I would have done more than cried had my neighbor chopped down my trees. I'm no tree-hugger but he had a lot of nerve even getting close to your property line.
    Now, those kids are the cutest things I've seen all day. And I've even seen a puppy playing with a kitten!
    Your Friend, m.

  5. Awww such an endearing photo capture!

  6. I always love how you think outside the box...and make me laugh all at the same time! Yeah...picking your nose in public has got to go! BLECH! What I'd give for a big ol' bowl of chicken and dumplings about now. When I need a fix, I head over to Cracker Barrel! Love that sweet picture...your talent never ceases to amaze!

  7. I love that picture and it would be so cool to see the Princess Di display. -- Love me some Brosnan.

    Have a great day.

  8. Hershey Pie? Chocolate Heaven? Why have I never heard of this? I shall be goggling this.

    That picture is A-dorable!

    I love you sweet friend ~~ dawn

  9. I love how you take a new twist with answers you give.
    I think my mouth dropped open when you said you never saw a Bourne movie. I love that series and the newer Bond movies too. I prefer action over scary movies.
    I adore your family pictures. Amazing!

  10. You must definitely go to the museum-I am a huge Princess Di fan and history buff. What I would give to have the opportunity to see her dress.

  11. I can't believe you are going to get to see Princess Diana's wedding dress!!! That is totally something I would LOVE to see! I do like Daniel Craig as Bond - but we have been to busy in the basement to go see the new movie :)

  12. just visiting from hodge podge.....blessings

  13. You take the best pictures! :)
    The Bourne movies were pretty good, actually.
    Love your Life Rules' list! :)

  14. I think many of the great cooks never write down their recipes. They can just wing it.
    Great photo :)

  15. Great rules of life! I bet you could write a book. :) And Hugh Jackman is definitely nice to look at! I love that picture. So sweet! (Especially because probably they aren't that sweet to each other all the time.) Cute kids! :)

  16. "If Hugh Jackman was James Bond - I'd totally watch."

    OH YEAH. Now we're talkin'. lol

  17. Beautiful picture! Enjoyed your Hodgepodge answers very much. Have a great weekend!

  18. You do such beautiful work, Rebecca! truly gifted.
