WEDNESDAY HODGEPODGE

HAPPY BIRTHDAY TO JOYCE
YESTERDAY!!!
 
 

1. What's the best and worst thing thing about growing older?
For me the best thing has been being able to travel more. Worst thing is that the older members of our families start to pass away :(

2. Autumn arrives this week in the Northern Hemisphere...what one thing do you love most about the fall season?
My favorite thing about autumn, but not in my part of the country, is the beautiful colors when the leaves change.

3. Speaking of fall...pumpkin seems to be flavoring everything these days-are you a fan? What's your favorite pumpkin flavored food or beverage?
Yes I am a big fan of pumpkin. I am going to say pumpkin cheesecake!

4. Since we're on the subject of fall...what's the worst fall you've ever taken?
I fell off a log in the water while fishing in Mammoth Lakes about 10 or more years ago. The problem is that I still have issues with my ankle that I twisted.

5. If you could own a prop from any film what would you choose?
I will say the ruby slippers from The Wizard of Oz.

6. What's the most interesting word you've read or learned in the past week?
The most interesting word I saw this last week was Leinenkugel but it's not new to me. It is a beer from Wisconsin. It is a very interesting word don't you think?

7. When was the last time you locked yourself out of your house, car, or office? Was it a big deal?
Honestly it has been years and even then I can't remember when I have. I am sure something will come to me as I start reading other posts today.
 
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I have a million random thoughts going through my mind from our trip to Chicago which I hope to get put into posts at some point soon.  Remember the question from last week "What circus act best describes your week so far?" and I put a Car Full of Clowns. Well let me tell you it was that and more!
 It was also a juggling act and three ring circus!

The Ruby Slippers...nice choice! Yes, that word is quite interesting, I must say. I couldn't even think of one! I LOVE the changing colors of the leaves...red amd yellow are my favorites!

I had lost my keys once and had to get my neighbours out of bed at 3.30am (they have a spare one)!! I found my own key about three months later: it was in my bag, exactly where I had put it...

retired not tired said...

Wizard of Oz ia also one of my favourite movies. Good choice!

Kathy ... aka Nana said...

I didn't think about the Ruby Slippers - that's one of my favorite movies, so I'm surprised I didn't come up with that.

Joyce said...

You just reminded me I love pumpkin cheesecake. I actually like it better than pumpkin pie because the pumpkin flavor is more mild.

Looking forward to hearing about your trip!

Chatty Crone said...

I agree with you on number one too. I am so much smarter now, but have some aches and pains. lol And the Ruby Slippers - there's no place like home!

STILLMAGNOLIA said...

Loved the number one answer...and ohhh I had forgotten about the pumpkin cheesecake. I will have to make one soon. I so love pumpkin.

Pen Pen said...

yes, the ruby slippers! I agree!

Katherine said...

Slippers. Good choice!

Garden of Egan said...

Losing my keys or locking myself out of the house/car just send me into the worst panic!

Cathy said...

Loved your answers this week and the picture. So cute!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Ruby slippers is cool - we just watched that movie with the boys last weekend.

tammy doane said...

Pumpkin cheesecake-never heard of this. Ruby slippers-cool prop.

Lynn said...

We found ourselves locked out of our house once. We had to climb a ladder to our second story bedroom. It was good to know that the house was so impenetrable. I agree pumpkin cheesecake.

edshunnybunny said...

Oh! The ruby slippers--what a great answer :)

Miss Debbie said...

We have something in common....I twisted my ankle about 3 years ago playing with my grandson. It still gives me trouble, too! Love your Ruby Slipper answer! I saw those at the Museum of American History at the Smithsonian In D.C. That was cool!

Secret Agent Woman said...

I enjoy fall, even if it means the coming of winter which I hate. And as for pumpkin, I really like pumpkin bread.

Theresa said...

I love the ruby slipper answer- good one!
Hope you are settling in to being back home :)

Liz @ A Nut in a Nutshell said...

Pumpkin cheesecake is the best. You kid not! I'm so glad you have the freedom now to travel and do things you couldn't before!

The Boston Lady said...

Clark Gable's Panama hat from "Gone with the Wind". And his smirk.... I'm with you on the cheesecake. Ann

Deb said...

Alexis AKA MOM said...
