Linking to Wild Bird Wednesday
And now on to Wednesday Hodgepodge...
1. The best part of waking up is Folger's in your cup! Black silk that is! And speaking of coffee. I ran Mr. Coffee's cleaning cycle twice last evening and it worked fine this morning. I think we need to invest in a water softener.
2. Given a choice, which animal interaction would you most like to experience (or for those non-adventurers...which would you dislike the least?)- Swim with the dolphins at one of several locations in the Florida Keys, a lion encounter ten minutes from Victoria Falls (Africa), or a day at a remote base camp high in the Big Sur wilderness via the Ventana Wildlife Society helping track California condors?
I'm not a good swimmer and the thought of being eaten by a lion isn't my cup of tea either, but tracking condors would be right up my alley!
3. What is something you fear about 'old age'? What is something you look forward to?
I fear the possibility of dimentia, not being unable to care for myself, and becoming a burden to my family. I look forward to retirement.
4. Hot sauce...are you a fan? If you answered yes, what's something you make/eat that must have hot sauce? On a scale of 1-10 how hot is too hot?
I'm a fan! I like hot sauce on a lot of things, but especially scrambled eggs. I'm good at around 8. Any hotter and I'm ready for a glass of milk.
5. It's been said that children learn what they live. What do you think children learn at your house?
That you can have fun without computer games.
6. What's your favorite movie with a number in it's title?
The Sixth Sense. It scared me and I don't scare easily in movies.
7. Saturday (August 16th) is National Tell a Joke Day...share one here.
Q: "What's the difference between a guitar and a fish?"
A: "You can't tuna fish."
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Bro O has always tried new varieties of plants in his garden. This year he has grown what is called a 'peach tomato'.
Garden Peach Tomatoes are native South American fruit. It is a small, bright yellow fruit with the globe shape of a tomato. In addition to the yellow color, it has a slight pink mottling when very ripe. It also has fuzzy skin. If you enlarge the photo you can see the fuzz. It does actually resemble a peach.
Plus it's good for you as it is rich in iron and vitamin B5. Apparently it also helps lower cholesteral.
I can't quite end my random thoughts without saying how sad it is to lose Robin Williams. I don't understand depression of that magnitude and hopefully never will. His struggle is over now. He is at peace and I'm sure in a happier place. R.I.P.
