Volume 325
Thank you Joyce :)
Go HERE to join in....

1. On a scale of 1-10 how would you rate your sense of direction? 1=can't find my way out of a paper bag and 10=if I've been somewhere once I can find it blindfolded ten years later.

I would be at least an 8! 

When was the last time you looked at/used a map you could hold in your hand? (phones don't count!)

Actually I held a real map in my had when we were in Montana. 

back east, down south, out west, up north

Choose one of these directional expressions and tell us why you chose it.

I will choose up north! Choosing it because we have driven up North twice this year.

2. Did you do more talking or listening yesterday? Is that typical? Describe your yesterday in one word.

I did more listening yesterday. No that is not typical. We were our to dinner with a co-worker of Marks and I just didn't have much to say! 

3. Time, money, water-power-resources, opportunity... which one on the list are you most guilty of wasting? What might you do to change that?

I waste time, have been doing that for years. To change it I must get off of my phone, computer and TV!

4. Did  your family take regular vacations when you were a kid? Tell us something you remember about a family roadtrip from your own childhood.

My grandparents on my father's side had a summer home in Union Pier Michigan. That would usually be our vacation for the summer. We did however take a road trip to California from Illinois one time that I remember. 

Since my father worked at a movie theater we were given passes to go to the studios. We saw Jerry Lewis making a movie and we saw the TV show Dennis The Menace being filmed. 

5. If you could grow anything you wanted, what would you grow? Why?

I'm going to say lemons because we love using fresh lemon in our water or iced tea. Otherwise I would have to say blackberries because I love them. 

6. Insert your own random thought here.

I'm in Las Vegas right now. Mark had a convention he needed to be at so I came along. Skye is at the kennel this week. Also by mistake I deleted all in my Feedly unread blogs so I probably won't see you posts prior to today.

How cool that you saw Jerry Lewis and Dennis the Menace being filmed. You had a cool childhood! I'm with you on the time wasting... and yes, it's mainly because of the distractions, but I also like to nap in the afternoons... something I need to stop doing!

Rebecca Jo said...

Oh, you make me rethink my answer on growing... I now want to make it avocados....I'm going back & changing my answer ;)

Chatty Crone said...

Nice answers - I have a pretty good sense of direction too. Sounds like you had a nice time as a child with vacations!!! I usually do more listening then talking myself. Have a good one.

Sandra said...

oops on the feedly, been there done that. perfect vacation for you to go watch them make a movie... we did not take vacations, we did travel a couple times a year from KY to GA and back but that was drive 12 hours with only potty breaks. daddy was not a vacation person.. I don't waste anything, time could be the answer if we count computer internet time, but to me mine is my entertainment, creative time, communication time. I sure do not waste TIME doing house work LOL

Elizabeth Day said...

So glad you are having this time with Mark and in a place where there is so much going on. Our last trip there, we stayed at the Mandalay, so that is a memorable trip for us at this point. Enjoy the rest of your trip.

betty said...

Is this the first time Skye is in a kennel? I bet she'll be glad to see you guys when you get home. I too need to stay off my computer; waste a lot of time that way.

How awesome to enjoy those perks of your daddy's job, when you were young!
There's a lemon tree in Ed's mama's backyard, but the lemons don't taste good. Someone just told us to wait until the first freeze to pick them. The trouble is, it rarely freezes here... Now, blackberries we can (and do) grow!
I hope you're enjoying your trip in Vegas!

I'm glad I'm not the only one who has deleted posts in the feedly feed. I've done that more than once.

Mara said...

I think I would be a five on the direction scale! Which is not that good for a professional driver I think. Then again, maps really help. Although a few weeks ago we were at a large shopping center and I really had to rely on my friend knowing where she was at all times. By the time we had gone up the escalator, I had already lost all sense of direction!

Nonnie said...

I spend too much time on the iPad with TV on in the background and trying to write notes or read. I guess you saw a lot of movies!

Mevely317 said...

How fun to watch the filming - both Jerry Lewis and Jay North. I used to love Dennis the Menace!

Cranberry Morning said...

What fun that must have been to have passes to the movie studios! Every TV-viewing kid's dream! I visited Universal Studios with my cousin ages ago and it was so much fun! I love lemon in my water also. It would be nice to grow lemons, avocados, and pomegranates! :-) Enjoy the rest of your time in Vegas!

Cathy said...

I didn't realize your dad worked at a theater. That explains why you love the movies so much. How fun that must have been to go to the studios.

Hi Debby,

Thanks for stopping by! sense of direction would be less than one even with a GPS.
I don't even know how to read a map.
I guess you could say I don't travel much, at least by myself.

Down south...I would love to visit the real down south.
Not Fl. because I am from there.
But, I would love to visit New Orleans.

more listening and my one word is reading.

We didn't take many when I was very young.
But, since I was the baby and the last one at home we went camping at Disney World several times.

Random thought: I look forward to visiting our precious friends soon.

KC Bob said...

Ditto #5 for me Debby! I love lemons.

Have fun in Vegas!

Pam Jackson said...

Wow....great answers. I have a pretty good sense of direction but I have a friend that does not and she calls me to find out how to go....even now with GPS! Haha...but we all have a strong point and we all have our weak ones.

Have a great time in Vegas!
