Volume 312
Thank you Joyce...

1. When and where were the best fireworks you've ever seen? Speaking of you know your hot buttons? The things people can say and/or do to set you off? When was the last time someone pushed one of your hot buttons?

For me it was the Polo fields in Oak Brook, IL many years ago. They were amazing, non stop and they had patriotic music playing really loud.

Lately it seems like everything is a hot button for me, everything is setting me off! 

2. Have you hosted any outdoor summer parties this year? Attended any? What makes for a great outdoor party?

No parties for us this year. We did attend Adam and Gabby's Couples Shower and it was fabulous. A great party would consist of family and friends, great food selections, a few drinks and some awesome music. 

3. What does freedom mean to you?

I don't think I can answer that now with the way our country has changed so much over the years. 

4. July is National Cell Phone Courtesy month...what annoys you most about people's cell phone habits?

They are always on them talking and sometimes I just want to shop in peace and quiet. However what annoys me the most is people still using their phones in the car. Nothing is that important that can't wait until you are off the roads!!

5. What's your current summer anthem?

I can't really say I have one this summer. I do listen to my CD from the movie Begin Again pretty often. Loved the movie and love the music from it! 

6.  Insert your own random thought here.

It's been years since I've gone anywhere to see fireworks. Our town does them every year and I can see them from my back yard so I always just stay home and watch.
People with cell phones make me crazy. I hate going somewhere with someone who spends the entire time texting with people. Or at work customers come up to the counter to be waited on with a cell phone to their ear and if you ask if you can help them they put a finger up indicating one minute. Excuse me but why not just walk away and come back when you're ready to be waited on.

No fireworks for us this year. It was a nice quiet night with the doggies; we were in bed by 9. LOL

Agree about the cell phones and driving. More important to get some place alive than talking on them when driving. I enjoy a good firework display. We stopped going to the public ones a few years back so as not to leave Koda alone. Now we are just out of the habit. Neighborhood people put some off, but it wasn't too loud.

Agree with you about the cell phones. I am so sick of the rudeness people have. I also hate that my adult children spent so much time holding their phones instead of my grandchildren's hands.

Sandra said...

I can see cell phones are hot buttons for everyone who has commented on yours and on one other blog I saw with this question... mine to. I have to many hot buttons to list here... I have never had an anthem, I think that means favorite song for the season? I saw it on other blog and did not know what it meant until I came here and read your comment. you have been through a lot and still have more on he way so let htose hot buttons FREE LOL...

I see people still using cell phones too - they just don't get it do they? Hope you had a good 4th. I like the new song Jesus by the Hillside Singers. Love, sandie

Mara said...

What annoys me most about mobile phones is how people get really annoyed with me if I don't have mine with me. 'But what if it's important?' Well, people will just have to phone me back! As for talking while driving: I will answer and yell 'one second' and then find the nearest bus stop or parking spot and answer properly. However, most of the time I don't even answer and phone back when I can.

Vee said...

Now that's honest! "Everything sets me off these days." My fuse seems to be getting a little shorter, too or maybe everyone else is getting dumber. Ha!

Joyce said...

I really liked that movie too. I haven't listened to the soundtrack in a while, so thanks for sharing. Have a great rest of the week!

My son is a total Nazi when it comes to driving and cell phones. (Guilty ... but I use the speaker feature and don't text!)

I'd not heard of that movie/song before. Wishing I had a summer anthem. Must give that some thought!

Cranberry Morning said...

I agree about the cell phones. Hopefully summer will get better and there will be fewer hot buttons. Thanks for the music clip. I'd never heard of it. xo

Mildred said...

We only have a home phone. We had a quiet night at home with our pets for the Fourth.
Sending prayers and hugs to you and yours.

I didn't see any fireworks this year although I could hear them for several nights.

Carla from The River said...

Oh, tell me more about your random! New movie?

Michelle F said...

Hi Debby,

Thanks for stopping over.

The song on your post is really interesting. She has a pretty voice.

I've always wanted to go to a polo field! It would be so much fun!
