When I went over to Joyce’s blog to copy today’s Hodgepodge questions, last night, I noticed it’s the 144th edition of “The Hodgepodge”. That sure is a lot of questions! One thousand and eight questions, to be exact! Thank you, Joyce, for continuing to surprise us each week, with a new set of thought-provoking questions! Speaking of questions, here are the ones for today:
1. What’s one thing you learned in September?
I already knew this, but I re-learned that our loved ones can be here with us one day, and gone the next. Life is very fragile.
2. Acorn squash, butternut squash, spaghetti squash, yellow squash, zucchini squash, or blech! hold the squash… what’s your favorite squash? What’s your favorite way to prepare your favorite squash?
The only kind of squash I’ve ever tried are yellow squash. We grow both ‘crooked neck’ and ‘straight neck’ squash in our garden, and I like them both. Unfortunately, the only way I like to eat squash is fried, but they sure are good!
3. The older I get, the more forgetful I become. Seriously, these days, I think I forget more things than I remember.
4. What’s your favorite television theme song ever?
My favorite television theme song is from the show “The Golden Girls”. I also like the theme from “Hawaii Five-O”.
5. What do you wish you’d spent more time doing five years ago?
I wish I’d spent more time doing things with Ed’s mom. She was still living at home then, but didn’t get out very much.
6. What item do you most need (or want) to add to your wardrobe this fall?
I don’t want any particular item, but I do need some new fall clothes that fit properly. Most of mine have become too big, since I changed my old eating habits, last December.
7. On October 2, 1950 the Peanuts cartoon was introduced to the world. What was your favorite cartoon when you were a kid?
I never really liked cartoons, as a kid, but I enjoyed watching The Road Runner Show, as a ‘tween’.
Our daughter and her daughter have begun taking violin lessons together. There’s a lady in our town who gives lessons, and furnishes each of her students with an instrument! She says this is her ministry. What a blessing this lady is to our community!
Sometimes Brandy and Madison practice their violins outside. Whenever they do, I enjoy sitting in my swing and listening to the sweet, soft music of their violins. It sort of reminds me of ‘Pa’ playing his fiddle on “Little House On the Prairie”…
