After a brief hiatus, the Wednesday Hodgepodge has returned – and I’m so glad it has.
1. What's something you miss about the 1980's? If you're too young to miss the 80's how about the 90's?
DH & I married in 1987, so that was a pretty good decade for me. DD turned 5 in 1980, so I miss those childhood years of hers.
2. Do you have a library card? If so, how often do you visit?
I’ve had a library card for as long as I can remember. I grew up in a family of voracious readers, and I have to admit that I was shocked when I first realized that not everyone was an avid reader. I live in a small village, so our library is small. But it’s part of a large regional library system, so I “visit” the library online frequently and request books I want to read … they get delivered to my library, where I can pick them up.
3. What's the secret to success?
3 Ps – patience, perseverance and perspiration (hard work).
4. This is National Backyard Games week...what's your favorite backyard game?
I enjoy playing washers. We bought DSIL a set quite a while back, and we frequently play when we get together at DD’s house.

5. If I dropped by today what would I find on your coffee table?
Um, nothing … I don’t have a coffee table.
6. Do you own a bicycle? When was the last time you rode a bicycle? Is that something you enjoy?
I have a bike and enjoy riding. I’ve not gotten out on my bike yet this spring (I can’t believe that – it’s been such a pleasant spring). There are hundreds of miles of bike trails in the county in which I live, and while there’s an access point not far from where we live now, we’d have to travel along a pretty busy road with very narrow shoulders. So we load our bikes onto our bike carrier when we go biking, drive to the access point and take off from there. Which means that we don’t always get out for a short ride like we used to … at our previous house we were a few blocks from an access point and could ride along through a quiet residential area to get to the access point, so we road frequently. One of our favorite things to do in Hilton Head is ride bikes … there are 50+ miles of bike trails, and we especially enjoy biking on the beach.
7. What's your favorite cheese?
It depends. I prefer cheese on/in something over eating it plain. A month or so ago we were shopping over in St. Louis and stopped at a quaint little deli where I had a turkey panini with smoked gouda … it was fabulous.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
DD needed a little break yesterday, so she called me to see if I wanted to join her while she did a little birthday shopping for T#2 (gifts and birthday supplies). We had a fabulous time … I love being with her, she makes me laugh in a way that no one else can.
