Thank you Joyce!

1. Have you ever been fishing? Did you catch a fish? If so did you keep it or throw it back? If you haven't been fishing is that something you'd like to try?

I love to fish. I believe in the past we would keep some to eat but for years now we just catch and release. 

Fish out of water, big fish in a small pond, living in a fishbowl, packed in like sardines, this is a fine kettle of fish, plenty of fish in the sea, or cut bait...which fishy phrase most recently applies to some area of your life?

I looked up each one and I'm not relating to any of them right now. I did however find this kettle of fish cute......

2. What's something you're always fishing for in your purse, wallet, desk, or kitchen junk drawer?

I'll go with the box cutter in the junk drawer because I've been in a shopping mood and boxes keep arriving at the front door! 

3. Your favorite fish tale or movie?

Of course Finding Nemo and Finding Dora are favorites. I enjoyed Salmon Fishing in Yemen and of course The Incredible Mr. Limpet with Don Knotts from 1964.

4. Are you sunrise, daylight, twilight or night? Explain why you chose your answer.

I think I am more of a sunset person. I love the night skies but I must say that the sky always draws me in regardless of the time of day. 

5. What's the oldest piece of clothing you own and still wear?

Nothing is coming to mind.....

6. We've got one more month of (officially) winter here in the Northern hemisphere. Are you feeling the need for a getaway? What's been the best and worst part of your winter so far?

I'm always wanting a getaway!!

We have had a lot of rain which is awesome for California. Sadly some places have had too much. 

Worst part, because I love a clean car, is the fact that it seems to rain on the days I have to leave the house. 

7.  The Wednesday Hodgepodge lands on National Margarita Day...will you be celebrating? Frozen or on the rocks? Are you a Jimmy Buffet fan? If so, what's your favorite JB tune?

No I won't be celebrating but I do love a margarita on the rocks. No I am not a Jimmy Buffet fan. I looked up his songs and the only one I actually recognized was Margaritaville! 

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

We had a lovely evening out with Adam and Gabby last Saturday. We were celebrating Gabby's 33rd birthday which was on Valentine's Day. 

We ate at a very quaint Italian Restaurant in downtown Orange, CA. 

My dinner was delicious and so was the wine. They had a lounge singer who was amazing and it made the atmosphere so pleasant. 

They have a date set for their wedding and it will be a destination wedding in Cancun.

I always love the fish belonging to the Commandant in the Police Academy films. They are not fishy films of course (although...), but they make me smile.

betty said...

How exciting with the date set for the wedding! I hope it all works out with the destination wedding. Dinner sounded lovely though! We got a lot of rain this past weekend too. Its good to see California getting a lot, but not at the risk of mud slides, etc.


Sandra said...

I love your kettle of fish and this is a fine kettle of fish is a saying I use any time anything happens. common use of that one.

I am wearing 10 year old exercise clothes to the YMCA daily. also my shirts and jeans and capris I wear everywhere I go, are 10 years old. when I met you for lunch I had on a blouse that was 9 years old and capris that were older. wow on wedding in /cancun. that means you get to go there.

Carla from The River said...

I do like the kettle of fish. ;-)
Oh my, exciting!! I am praying all the plans go well for Adam and Gabby!

Chatty Crone said...

I have heard that you are getting a lot of rain there - saw a photo of people kneeboarding in the street. I have been fishing once - so you really like it - I bet you do some in Florida? Love, sandie

I can't wait to hear more about the wedding, Debby! :)
'Hoped to play along today, but couldn't think of a single 'fishy phrase' or a movie. Jaws resonated ... but I think it was because it appeared in theaters during a particularly happy time in my life.

Empty Nester said...

I'm so glad Adam is happy! He deserves it! I loved the Don Knots movie when I was little, too. I just laughed and laughed at him. Do you remember the one with the haunted house? The Ghost and Mr. Chicken? I still love that one. I'm looking forward to seeing pictures of the wedding

Joyce said...

I'm so excited for all your happy news! I almost chose Salmon Fishing in the Yemen too, becaue I liked that movie a lot. It didn't get great reviews but hubs and I both enjoyed it.

Stacy said...

A destination fun!

I can't believe someone else chose The Incredible Mr. Limpet. That's 3 of us I've seen so far. I didn't think anyone else would remember it.

podso said...

I need to look up that Don Knotts' movie. It sounds like you have something really special to look forward to.

Nonnie said...

Love the little teapot filled with fish. So cute. A wedding in Cancun sounds beautiful and I love a wedding anyway. Congratulations.

Ann Thompson said...

Cute kettle of fish. It's always fun to see boxes arrive at your door even when it's something you bught yourself

Cathy said...

I said The Incredible Mr Limpet too.

Theresa said...

Sounds like a great dinner and I'm sure everyone is excited about a set date for the wedding :)

Little Penpen said...

You are going to Cancun!!! Congrats! To all!!

Cranberry Morning said...

That destination wedding sounds wonderful! What fun! Cute Kettle of Fish, alright. And I'm going to check into both of those movies. I've not seen either. Have a wonderful Thursday, Debby. xo

Mrs.T said...

I am always ready for a getaway! That kettle of fish was adorable.

bp said...

Hello, hope you are having a good week.

I need to write the title of the Don Knott's movie, Caleb might enjoy that.

Will you be helping with any of the wedding planning?

God bless,

NanaNor's said...

Cancun will be a fun place to get married! We've only been there once at a Palace Resort and it was great. Hope you aren't having any issues with flooding in your area-it seems like a good portion of Ca. is under water.

Alexis AKA MOM said...

I think I fished when I was very young, but I prefer it on my plate only lol.

KC Bob said...

I liked Salmon Fishing in Yemen too Debby.

Have a great weekend!

Mildred said...

Exciting about the wedding plans. I've never visited Cancun but my niece goes often on vacation.
Wishing you a pleasant weekend. xoxo

Vee said...

It's almost time for a new Hodge Podge and I am just showing up for this one. In fact, I might have missed it except that you are a fan of the Oscars and I am so not that I kept looking back. Where have I been that it has not registered that you are a California gal?! That is the cutest kettle of fish I have seen.

Secret Agent Woman said...

I'm with you, I'm always wanting a getaway. Even as I'm returning from one.

I used to love to fish when I was a kid, but only if I got to eat the fish.
