Thank you Joyce!

1. My hubs spent last weekend pheasant hunting. Are there hunters in your family? If so, what do they hunt? Which of the following have you tasted-pheasant, rabbit, venison, duck, goose? Which of those would you most like to taste, or be mostwilling to taste? Vegetarians keep calm and Hodgepodge on.

Mark has been hunting but it was years ago. I'm not a fan and do not want to taste any. I have had duck because his family use to cook it. It was definitely a part of a Bohemian meal years ago. They only thing Mark hunts now are Targets.....he belongs to a gun range. 

2. What high spot have you visited that gave you a wonderful 'bird's eye view' of something below?

The top of the John Hancock Center in Chicago is one place I have been for a great view. Of course Mammoth Mountain is another place with a great view along with our own backyard!


3.  Do you have any birds in your home? These could be either real live pets or decorative, as in bird prints, knickknacks, fabric or pottery.

Yes I do have a few decorative bird figurines in the house. One is my new Jim Shore Blue Bird! I did have a love bird who lived for many years back in the 90's.

4. Tell about a time you 'killed two birds with one stone'?

Nothing is coming to mind right now but I know I have done that many times in my life! 

5. Your favorite song with a bird in it's title?

The first thing that came to mind was "Yellow Bird" which I think I heard Harry Belafonte sing but apparently The Kingston Trio is known for this song along with the Mills Brothers! Yellow Bird was first recorded in 1957.

 
6. What most recently gave you goose bumps?

I think I need to start keeping a list of different emotions so I can be ready for these questions. I never think good on the spot! 

Goose pumps for me, as a rule, will often come from something emotional. Usually a deep intense feeling from God. I recently felt them watching Super Soul Sunday on OWN with Oprah. She had Madonna Badger on who lost her 3 daughter along with her parents in a house fire on December 25, 2011. 

7. Halloween is this Friday...any plans? Did you trick or treat as a child? Carve pumpkins? Share your most memorable costume.

The only plans I have is to hand out candy. We had about 70 kids last year and we buy the big candy bars at Costco which is really fun. The kids get really excited when they come to our door. 

Yes I did trick or treat as a child. Those are awesome memories for me. Never had any special costumes. (as an adult I would never dress up, don't like it at all) I don't remember carving any pumpkins as a child but of course we did with our children. We have a pumpkin on the kitchen table waiting to be carved right now.......

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Thank you for all of your support and encouragement with my Less is More post. Also I want to say that as a blogger I love to comment back to the comments that I get on my posts. If you don't hear back from me it is because you are a no-reply so there is no way for me to return a thank you to you!
