Hodgepodge-ing on Wednesday

1. What's something you miss about the 1980's? If you're too young to miss the 80's how about the 90's?

Well, first of all, I'm sidetracked by trying to wrap my mind around the fact that there might be bloggers that are "to young to miss the 80's"! Shouldn't anyone in that category still be in school?! Nothing like a wake-up slap first thing in the morning! Joyce, you are making me feel my age! LOL

The 1980's - at least the first half - are kind of a blur to me because I was busy getting my nursing degree and then working night shift, but I do miss parts of that decade, especially 1988, the year we got engaged and married. Ah, young love and the fun of planning a wedding!

2. Do you have a library card? If so, how often do you visit?

We had a family card but it is expired. We live outside of any city limits, so we have to pay to even have a card. We faithfully renewed it annually and went to the library every week throughout the summers all through my kids' years in elementary and middle school, but they've got enough of their own books and once they outgrew the reading program with the cool prizes, we quit going.

3. What's the secret to success?

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and do not depend on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge Him, and He will direct your paths. (Proverbs 3:5-6)

4. This is National Backyard Games week...what's your favorite backyard game?

Sitting on a porch swing!

5. If I dropped by today what would I find on your coffee table?

Candles, a book or two, a Jason's Deli menu, some extraneous clutter.

6. Do you own a bicycle? When was the last time you rode a bicycle? Is that something you enjoy?

Yes. When my kids were in elementary school. Not as much as when the bikes were less aerodynamic and I didn't have to ride all hunched over like a racer.

7. What's your favorite cheese?

Depends on what else we're having. I usually like provolone or baby Swiss or Monterey Jack on a burger or sandwich. But nothing beats cheddar on a baked potato! (Although I haven't had one of those in a looong time!

8. Insert your own random thought here.

If you are a major university and you are preparing commencement programs for your School of Public Affairs, it is a good idea to have multiple people check them for typos before sending to the printer, especially when certain letter omissions can result in horrific embarrassment for the school's name.

The University of Texas is reprinting the programs and mailing them to all of the graduates so they will have a correct one for their keepsake.

May God bless the poor employee that did this. I hope her (or his!) boss has a sense of humor; s/he will never live this one down!

Oh my word-not sure the poor soul responsible will ever be able to get over that!

Your random made me laugh out loud!

Amen on #3.

I love to sit on a porch swing and read or play on my laptop or just play with the dog or talk to hubby or all of the above at the same time.

I saw that typo headlinedon the news yesterday! I laughed my head off :)

I love sitting on our swing. Espcially together with the hubby and girls :)

You're right! Bikes now do make you hunch all over. Maybe that's why it hurts to ride!

Here's my chat:

WOW that poor person who made the error! Maybe the way bikes are made is why I why I ride a stationary one! He he...
