Pigeon on Beale Street
Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday
And now for the Podge...
1. Speaking of 180...when was the last time you 'did a 180' on something?
With regard to decisions, I can't think of the last time. I normally stand by my initial reaction. However, when it comes to taking pictures while driving. I do 180s all the time.
2. It's Independence Week in the US of A! What's your favorite thing about America right this very minute? Favorites only! Let's hear what you love about America.
Spacious skies, amber waves of grain, purple mountain majesties, and those fruited plains.
If you're playing along today, and you're not an American but have been to America, what do/did you like best about this country? If you've never been to America, do you have any desire to visit? What's the number one thing you'd like to see?
3. Stars or stripes? Red, white, or blue? Watermelon, homemade vanilla ice cream, or blueberry pie?
The stars at night are big and bright! Oops guess I lived in Texas too long. Blue as in my daughter's and my son's eyes. Watermelon, but would readily enjoy my share of the other two.
4. When did you last see stars, figuratively speaking?
I equate 'seeing stars' with injuries, so guess it was 3 years ago when I fell down the steps and broke both ankles.
5. 'Clear as a bell', 'with bells on', 'lots of bells and whistles', 'saved by the bell'...which phrase 'rings' truest for you lately? Have you ever seen The Liberty Bell?
I have seen the Liberty Bell. I actually used the phrase "with bells on" yesterday. Hubs asked if I was going with him to work in the garden. I responded, "of course, with bells on!" Now go back and read it with a heavy dose of sarcasm.
6. Are you caught up in World Cup fever? Have you watched a lot or a little or none at all?
At first, yes. Now, not so much.
7. Bid farewell to June in 10 words or less.
Goodbye June. See you next year.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
So, I got to thinking about the word HODGEPODGE. Does anyone remember Orthography? Okay, so I'm aging myself. It's the study of language. It was one of my favorite subjects in Junior High. Anyway I looked up hodge which means "an English Rustic or farm laborer" and thenI looked up podge which means "a short fat person". Hmm Hodgepodge, a short fat farmer? No, when you stick the two words together, you get "a mixture of different things". Okay, so my brain is a little skewed in its thinking sometimes. But, hey that was my random thought.
