Wednesday Hodgepodge


I can’t believe that I haven’t done a Hodgepodge since Jan. 2!  Hope I remember how.  Ha!


1.  In the USA this coming Sunday millions will be watching as the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49's in the Superbowl.  What was the last event you attended that could be described as super?

I attended a World Series game in 1987.


2.  Share something you're a fan of these days?

I’m a fan of the Cardinals (baseball) and the Blues (hockey).  I’m a fan of NCIS. 

3. How do you feel about wings?  In case anyone is confused, I'm talking the edible appetizer kind.  What's your preferred seasoning on a wing-hot, mild, teriyaki, sweet and sour, other?  Do you make your own or is there a favorite place you like to go for wings?   

There used to be a sports pub in the nearby town that had The. Best. Wings. Ever!  It was part of a regional chain that unfortunately hasn’t fared well in the last 10 years … the only one remaining is about an hour away.  The restaurant that moved into the vacated spot of the local sports pub has very good wings, just not quite as good as the earlier pub.  I prefer hot.


4.  As long as we're talking sports today...have you followed the Lance Armstrong story?  Did you watch his interview with Oprah and if so what was your reaction to his confession and subsequent remarks?  

I didn’t see the interview so I have no reaction to his confession.  I don’t understand why these athletes think they can hide their transgressions … haven’t they learned that sooner or later they’re going to get caught?  And I don’t understand how they think that we’re just going to forget all their protestations of innocence?  <sigh>


5.  What's a question you hate to be asked?  

I can think of no particular question that I hate to be asked. 


6. The coaches in this Sunday's big game happen to be real life brothers.  Jim Harbaugh coaches the 49er's and his older brother John Harbaugh coaches the Baltimore Ravens.  Were you and your sibling(s) competitive?  In what way? Are you still?  If you're an only child how did you handle competition growing up?  

Yes, I was and am still very competitive.  


7.  What's your favorite game involving a ball and when did you last play?    

My favorite game involving a ball is baseball, but these days I’m a spectator, not a participant … not that I was very much of a participant.  My favorite activities as a child were more sedentary ones, but I did play a little baseball now and then … the kids in our neighborhood would frequently get together and play some baseball in our backyards, and I could always be talked into playing so we could field two teams. 


8.  Insert your own random thought here.

I do believe I’ve come down with something … my guess would be bronchitis.  All I can say is if I have to suffer through this, I’m glad I got it now, rather than 3 weeks ago.  ;-)



  1. My husband and I attended a world series event when we first began dating. It was a lot of fun!
    I hope you feel better and don't get any sickness at all!

  2. Feel better, Kathy! Being sick is no fun at all... I am finally getting on top of whatever it was (upper respiratory yuck) that attacked on Christmas day. I was prescribed an antibiotic (twice) which kept it at bay while I was away but it kept reappearing when I came off the Rx. I'm pretty confident that it's finally gone for good today. Get yourself to a Dr. if it persists, that's my recommendation! Take good care of you. ;)

  3. I don't enjoy watching sports, but I'm sure the Superhero will be watching! I'm not sure I was very competitive as a child or an adult! Sort of sad to write that!

    We did play vacant lot baseball when I was a child and I loved that......

  4. Perfect timing to come down sick. Rest up and get well.

  5. Good morning! Hubby went to a World series game with our boys once but we didn't have enough tickets so I didn't of their best memories. Sorry to hear you are sick. Hope you are feeling better soon!

  6. NCIS and the ST Louis Cardinals!! Two of the all time greats!

  7. I hope whatever you're suffering from is short-lived. Mine has definitely been a clinger. ugh.

    We used to play softball at recess sometimes. I don't think recess is long enough for that anymore.

  8. Oh, I know how you love your Cardinals! Going to the World Series had to have been exciting! So sorry you're not feeling very well. Don't put off going to the doctor if you don't get better soon...just too many things going around these days. In fact, at Abby's school, there's been an outbreak of croup, of all things!

  9. Sorry to hear you have caught something. Throw it away and give it back.

  10. Oh NO :( Probably the shock to your system of the cold again.
    Hope you feel better!!!

  11. I hope you are feeling better soon!

  12. Hope you're feeling better soon. I love NCIS!

  13. Oh, goodness, I cannot tell you how many folks have had bronchitis around here and it is lasting for days and days. I hope you have a quick case. And, yes, I'm glad it wasn't 3 weeks ago too.

    Blessings to feel better soon!

  14. I like chicken wings. I am tired of Lance Armstrong. And I hate to be asked - what's for dinner! lol

  15. I hope whatever you caught leaves real soon glad you had such a nice time on your trip. And yup, glad you didn't get sicker earlier

  16. I agree, everyone gets caught and especially a public figure. How can they not know this! Hope you feel better soon.


I am SO glad you stopped by! No proving that you're a robot here ... I want to hear what you have to say! ;-)
