‘Falling’ Into Another Hodgepodge…

Happy Fall, y’all!  The last couple of days have been very ‘fall-like’ for us, and it’s been nice!  It’s mid-week, which means it’s time to ‘fall’ into another edition of The Wednesday Hodgepodge.  Below are the questions furnished by our gracious hostess, Joyce, along with my answers.  As always, thanks to Joyce for hosting this fun meme!

1. What’s one thing that’s still the same about you as when you were young?

My conscience.  All of my life, I’ve had a strong sense of what’s right and what’s wrong.  I still do.

2. What’s more important-history or science? Why?

As I’ve grown older, and become more aware of the world around me,  I’ve discovered history is more important than science.  If we don’t know history, and learn from it, we’re bound to make the same mistakes as some of our predecessors.  Case in point, America’s growing trend toward socialism tells me many people don’t know history!

3. Lima, kidney, string, garbanzo, black or pinto-your favorite bean?

Out of the beans listed, I like lima beans the most.  In fact, we had lima beans for dinner, last night.

4. What’s something people come to your town to do?

During the month of May, people come to our town to buy our famous ‘sweet onions’ and, also, to enjoy our ‘Sweet Onion Festival’.

5. When was the last time you were in a meeting? Sum it up for us in five words or less.

The last time I was in a meeting was about two weeks ago, when the family met at the funeral directors office, to make arrangements for my MIL.  My words to sum up this meeting– “Very sad and stressful.”

6. What special event would you like a VIP pass to attend?

The Country Music Festival in Nashville, Tennessee.

7. What’s one piece of advice you’d give a writer?

Write from your heart, about the things you are passionate about.


Today, I’m sharing an unusual sight.  It’s a photograph of one of our pear trees. The tree has both ripened pears and new leaves/ blossoms on it, at the same time!  I think our poor tree may be a bit confused.

  1. Your answer for #2 makes me want to switch my answer to history 🙂 Ooo! A sweet onion festival sounds fun!! Happy Wednesday!

  2. I enjoyed my visit here! I enjoy Joyce’s Hodgepodge so much!

  3. Your random picture is…erm… well, random! Poor little pear tree. Doesn’t know if it’s Spring or Autumn!

  4. Aww, poor tree. It’s definitely autumn here, which I love so I’m happy about the weather at the moment. An onion festival sounds like small town kind of fun-a little piece of Americana which is what makes America special I think.

  5. …that pear tree is quite a sight!!!

    Now, how did you fix your lima beans? I like ’em in succotach…or cooked with ham [dried lima beans]. Yum.

    And I loved your answer to the first question…very much so. Way to go.

  6. Your the first Lima Bean I have read today! The onion festival sounds like fun. I also said write from your heart 🙂 That is very strange about your pear tree……

  7. Yes that pear tree definitely suffers from apPEARant season confusion. Sorry! I suffer from awful punning, a serious, character flaw!
