Welcome to Wednesday, and that can mean only one thing: Hodgepodge! After missing last week’s Hodgepodge, I’m excited to get back into the Hodgepodge groove. After you’re done here, why not check out what others have to say … just click on the button above.
1. What's one thing that's still the same about you as when you were young?
I love Cardinals baseball. I remember being in 2nd or 3rd grade, keeping score as we listened along to a Cardinals radio broadcast. I used leftover sheets of notebook paper from school, so I only had to draw in half the lines necessary to create my own “score card”.
2. What's more important-history or science? Why?
While they’re equally important, I have to give a slight nod to history … if only because if we do not learn from our mistakes in the past, we’re destined to keep making those same mistakes.
3. Lima, kidney, string, garbanzo, black or pinto-your favorite bean?
I do love baby limas, with plenty of butter, salt and pepper. But my favorite would probably be a string (aka green) bean.
4. What's something people come to your town to do?
People come here to have babies, surgeries, medical procedures, etc. While my little town is very small and has almost zero business establishments, we do have the hospital. Even the larger town nearby, with 4x as many residents, doesn’t have a hospital.
5. When was the last time you were in a meeting? Sum it up for us in five words or less.
Last fall, as a member of the Financial Oversight at church, I attended the annual budget preparation meeting. My summation would be: Why bother?
6. What special event would you like a VIP pass to attend?
The American Quilters Society annual quilt show in Paducah, KY.
7. What's one piece of advice you'd give a writer?
Grammar and spelling can be your friends … use them.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
I’m “working” the night shift tonight … DD’s schedule for today got moved to the evening shift. Kind of nice to be able to get a lazy start to my day … even though I get up bright and early, I’m not usually ready to really start my day for a few hours.
We watched the baseball game last night (it was a good one … the Cardinals rookie pitcher was one out away from a no-hitter … and the Cardinals reduced their magic number to 3), so I recorded the NCIS season premier. My plan was to (finally!) get back to hand quilting my storm at sea, but perhaps I’ll work on some hexagons instead since that work is more mindless, so I can focus on NCIS.
Have a wonderful Wednesday!
