Got a good reason For taking the easy way out



Where on your body do you have a scar, and what caused it?

On my heel! A big scar...My brother was bicycling me around the neighborhood---I was on the back wheel's bumper/fender of the bike, and my feet were resting on the wheel's axle instead of dragging on the street. My foot slipped off and went into the spokes of the tire. Really got mangled up and a lot of loose flesh and blood.

We were young....and idiots!

What is something that has happened to you that you would consider a miracle?

Becoming a grandmother of a Down Syndrome grandson. He has taught our whole family the true meaning of LOVE---unconditional love!!

Name a television personality who really gets on your nerves.

Well, I don't really watch that much television, so not many would get on my nerves [people, that is]. But the influx of some TV show genres get on my nerves. Maybe that's why I don't watch much. But I DO watch national and local news a again, not necessarily any PEOPLE get on my nerves, it's the content in the news programming. All news is so dramatically 'acted' out it totally sucks! Seems big boobed ladies who die and had a playboy[magazine] reputation is "in" this week!!!
[and no disrespect intended for the dead or's just that the news gets a subject[people's stories] and pounds it into the ground until the viewers are sick of it....look at the racial slurs of Mr. went on for WEEKS]

Main Course
What was a funny word you said as a child (such as "pasketti" for "spaghetti")?

Fridgerfreezer. It wasn't me....I can't remember words I used 50 years ago!! But I do recall this one. My son...."fridgerfreezer"=refrigerator.

Fill in the blank: I have always thought ______ was ______.

I have always thought PURPLE was/is PRETTY!!!


  1. ouch! that sounds painful...i agree with u about the news...i can't stand to see the same news over & over again!!!

  2. Gday Anni! enjoyed your feast
    Appetizer :ouch Very painfull
    Well desert I have to agree, i love purple once had a purple corded velvet lounge suite.

  3. Great feast...If I have a choice I always grab purple! Love that color.

    Your St. Pat's theme is cute!

    Take care,
    Thanks for visiting.

  4. Loose flesh and blood? Youch! Oh, and love your soup. You are so right on that one! :-)

  5. You will NOT EVEN believe! WE have the SAME EXACT appetizer today! How incredibly ODD is that???

    My mind is BLOGGLED!!!

  6. Ouch!

    I agree with the ongoing news stories. Stuff stops being news after the 10th telling.

  7. Just came from Melli, now please tell the truth who copied whom ??? It's the same text besides she was the victim of her sister and you of your brother. It's probably made on purpose so nobody thinks you have copied each other. That's my miracle today, lol ! I discovered your crimes !

  8. "fridgerfreeer" That's original! I love it.

    Oh yeah, I agree with your salad. It is becoming more and more apparant that "news" is that which pertains to big boobed women, sex scandals, with everything in between. What a shame that the media outlets in this country consider the above to be real "news."

    Nice feast! Thank you for visiting my site, too!

    Best -

  9. Great Feast!
    Have a wonderful day!
