Random Dozen…March 24

1.  What is your favorite sign of Spring?  I look forward to those first blossoms on fruit trees, dogwoods, and other flowering trees.

2.  Did you remember to spring forward on March 14?  If not, how did it impact your day? Yes, I remembered to spring forward…ugh!

3.  If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what vegetable would you plant in a garden this year? I can’t think of a vegetable that I would plant.  We live in a farming community, and fresh vegetables are all around us.  I would love to be able to grow kiwi though.  I love them, and they are sort of expensive here.

4.  If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what fruit would you plant?  Well, I guess I just answered that one in number 3, didn’t I?

5.  What is your least favorite insect?  I have two insects that I hate equally–the mosquito, and the gnat–both seem equally attracted to me!

6.  March 22 was World Water Day. To celebrate, here are some water questions. Do you drink bottled water? If so, what brand?  I only drink bottled water while traveling.  I don’t have a particular brand that I favor.

7.  Have you ever been somewhere that it was not safe to drink the local water? If so, how did you handle that?  Years ago when the kids were little, and we’d go camping, some of us always ended up getting sick.  Finally we figured out that it was the water in the campground that made us sick.  Once we figured that out, we bought jugs of drinking water–and never had any more stomach problems.  Who would’ve “thunk” it?

8.  How many glasses of water do you drink per day?  I’m lucky if I drink one.  I am a huge fan of iced tea though!  Can you tell I’m southern?

9.  March 24 is the birthday of Harry Houdini.  Have you ever watched a professional magic show? Share.  No, not anything like David Copperfield.  However, I have watched the magic shows included as part of the Ringling Bros. Circus which were pretty good…like turning a lady into a tiger, or making a bird disappear then reappear.

10.  Have you ever been a participant in a professional magic show (up on stage!  No, thankfully not!  I try to avoid the spotlight.

11. March 24 is also the birthday of Steve McQueen and Clyde Barrow. Do you like Westerns or gangster movies?  If so, what is your favorite?  I like westerns the best.  I love the old Clint Eastwood westerns–The Good, The Bad, and The Ugly is my favorite.  I recently saw The 3:10 to Yuma with Russell Crowe and enjoyed it very much, too.

12. (Really random)  What U.S. state that you’ve never visited would you like to visit someday?  My first choice would be to visit Hawaii.  It’s such a beautiful tropical place…I’d also like to visit Nevada and go to Las Vegas–not to gamble–but to see all the lights and sights!   Two extremes–from the tropics to the dessert!  LOL

  1. Hawaii sounds really nice right about now…I’m in need of a tropical vacation : )

    Enjoy your day!

  2. Sweet tea and being southern are synonymous, aren’t they?

  3. I once had a friend tell me that I could never be truly southern because I don’t like iced tea. But I can drawl with the best of ’em!

  4. I choose Hawaii too! I love ice tea too!

    Happy Wednesday!

  5. Great list! LOL… I used to live along the OH River in Indiana. Everyone there liked to drink iced tea as well. I’m not a real fan of it. I like herbal teas though. Happy Wednesday.

  6. I liked the Clint Eastwood westerns too, though I haven’t watched them in years.

  7. Thanks for joining in on Random Dozen! We just got the Good, Bad & The Ugly from Netflix a couple of weeks ago. The kids were not as enthusiastic as we were. Their loss. HA!

  8. I try to avoid the spotlight too and never volunteer to do anything on stage!

  9. Mmmmm…. I would LOVE to have kiwi in my yard too! I would like to have ALL fruits and vegetables at my finger tips! LOL! I like iced tea too – but nobody would EVER accuse me of being southern for it! I don’t like it sweet!

  10. Kathy, Great list. I love westerns too. Hope you and your family are doing great. How are you feeling? Miss you, Lots of Love,
