WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

Volume 222
Join in with Joyce's Hodgepodge! 

1.  Did you do anything 'memorable' this past weekend?

No I did not. 

2. Ronald Reagan is quoted as saying-

"Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same."  

Your thoughts? Do you somehow acknowledge and appreciate the freedoms you enjoy? Did your upbringing contribute to that sense of appreciation? If you're a parent, are there specific things you do to pass on this sense of responsibility and appreciation to your own children in regard to the freedoms they enjoy?

I believe Ronald Reagan's statement. As far as acknowledging and appreciating my freedoms I do thank God daily for that. I would say "yes" my upbringing did contribute to that sense of appreciation. I do believe that we also taught our children to have an appreciation and respect for our country just by our actions. 

3. Loudest noise you've ever heard?

I'm thinking that it would have been some military planes flying overhead at an aviation show we would have attended with our children when they were younger. 

4. What was the last thing you ate that might be considered 'junk food'? Did you enjoy it?

Onion dip with chips and yes I enjoyed it very much. The dip was made with half yogurt and the chips were NON GMO Sweet Potato which were a little healthier but still not good for me. 

5. When was the last time you were somewhere the crowd felt 'packed in like sardines'?

Probably waiting in line for a ride at Disney World.

6. Are you organized when it comes to packing for a trip? Do you make a list weeks in advance or toss items in last minute? Are you a carry-on only sort of packer or do you need an entire suitcase for your shoes?

I feel organized when I travel and yes I make lists in advance! No way I am a carry on person. I refuse to go through the airport with baggage or try to get something up in a bin. If it doesn't fit under the seat it is not going with me. Taking my camera and computer are all the carry-on I can handle besides my purse. 

7. What was the last sporting event you attended in person? Did your team win? Did you care?

It has been years since I attended a sporting event in person. Don't know if they won and most likely I didn't care unless someone I knew was in it! 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

One of the many fish Mark caught in Canada. He had a great time on an island for a week. They only ate fish a few times and the rest were all catch & release. He loved hanging with his brother and the other guys. It was one of those shower every other day kinda trips which if you know Mark that is not like him at all! 

FYI: MARK'S MOM FINALLY GOT HER MOTHER'S DAY CARD FROM US YESTERDAY. IT WAS POSTMARKED HERE ON MAY 1ST......ONLY TOOK 26 DAYS TO GET TO HOUSTON.
