Ninety-Nine Bottles And A Hodgepodge, Too…

You’re probably thinking ninety-nine bottles and a hodgepodge? What???  There aren’t ninety-nine bottles in this post, but this is the ninety-ninth hodgepodge!  That’s a whole lot of hodgepodge questions!  Speaking of questions, here are Joyce’s questions for this week:

1. So, do you like beer?


2. What’s your least favorite repetitive task?

Cleaning the bathroom!  Ugh.

3. When was the last time you rode a bus? Where was it headed?

The last time I rode a bus was back in 2005.  It was a school bus, and it was headed on a school field trip–I’m not positive, but I think it may have been headed to River Street in Savannah.

4. What song from your childhood or from your own children’s childhood could make a parent’s nerves stand on end?

The song “Ninety-Nine Bottles Of Pop” (or beer) quickly makes my nerves raw!  It’s like the sound of nails on a chalkboard to my ears.

5. The US Presidential election cycle is drawing to a close (can I get an AMEN??), and the third and final debate was held last night…what was the last thing you ‘debated about’?

Actually, it was that third and final debate, believe it or not!

6. Can a person make too much money? How much is too much?

As far as I’m concerned, sports figures and entertainers are highly overpaid for what they do!  That being said, if someone is willing to pay them a ridiculous amount of money, more power to them for taking advantage of their opportunity, so my answer the question is “No”.  This brings me to my next thought…

When did it become such a “crime” in America to be rich?!   Becoming successful and making money used to be the American dream, but our current administration seems to have contempt for the rich, and wants to punish the most successful citizens by raising their taxes!  Where’s the incentive to work hard–or to work at all for that matter?  No wonder there are 47 million people on food stamps!   I’m not a rich person.  Heck, I’m not even sure I qualify as middle class anymore, but if had a lot of money, I wouldn’t want more of it redistributed!  I’ll get off my soapbox now…

7. Pop-soda-coke-something else…what’s it called where you live?

Coke–even if it’s not an actual coke!  LOL


I’m praying, praying, praying about the upcoming election.  I believe America is at a very important crossroads, and I am praying very hard that our country makes the right choice…God be with us.

  1. I’m glad the debates are over. Ugh. They made my stomach hurt-literally!

    Hope you have a lovely day : )

  2. I’m worried about the election too.

  3. I pray all the time, too, about our country and the upcoming election. Very scary times we’re living in. Thankfully, God is with us! Same with me on #7…a coke is a coke, whether it’s Pepsi, Dr. Pepper, Sprite, 7-Up, etc.

  4. I had almost the same answer about money as you. And I’m praying for the election as well. I pray we get the man we need and NOT the man we deserve. They are Not one and the same.

  5. I’m with you on the whole money thing! I’m not really interested in giving Socialism a try.

    99 bottles can get on my nerves too, but it takes a while. I don’t think we ever made it past the 70’s before someone told us to be quiet. 🙂

  6. The bathroom seems to be the #1 answer today. Yes our country needs help and we need to be the best again. My feelings on the taxes is that we should all pay the same rate. Why do the rich get a break and pay a lesser percentage?

  7. Guessing I am an oddball. I rather enjoy cleaning the bathroom. Now when we had roommates I couldn’t stand to clean it. Some people are just thoughtless slobs!

  8. When I saw your title I thought of ’99 bottles of beer on the wall’. I chuckled because Joyce’s first question is about beer. Then I saw your answer about the song! Good one! I hated going on field trips and knowing that there was a bus full of elementary school children singing it at the top of their lungs.

  9. We’re pop people here in Washington State.

  10. We agreed on #2. And I have to agree with you on the money question. Having money isn’t a crime and it isn’t sinful … as long as our hearts are in the right place.

  11. Listening to the debates this year has me thinking What?
