"ONE" Random Dozen

Before I get started on Random Dozen, I have an important question to ask:
Can everybody see my cute background?  I got it from a new site I found, but it's not showing up on my husband's laptop.  Thanks!

It's time to link up with Linda over at 2nd Cup of Coffee for the weekly Random Dozen!  Since this week's theme is "ONE", I thought I'd try to answer with just one word.  We'll see how it works out for me!

1. What is one really fast, know-by-heart "go-to" meal to fix in a pinch?
     Spaghettisauce from a jar, of course!  (Okay, one question and I've already blown it.  Let's start over with #2)
2. What is one item you won't leave home without. (Purse and license do not count.)
3. Where is one place you never tire of visiting?
4. Share one factoid of your family's history.
    There goes my "one word objective"!  My maternal grandfather invented the corn stalker, but 
    didn't hang on to the patent.  One of the corn stalkers (along with Grandpa's name) is in a museum 
    in Texas.
5. Complete this sentence: "Once upon a time I ...."
    Went to the bridge during rivalry week and broke off the car key trying to open a can of paint.  I  
    wasn't suppose to be there...it was after band practice and I was suppose to go straight home. 
    told my dad that the key just broke off in the car door.  He acted like he believed me, but 31 years 
   later, I'm still wondering if he didn't really know what happened.
6. If you could win a one year's supply of anything, what would it be?
    Toilet paper
7. "One quirky thing you may not know about me is ...."
    I don't like for my morning routine to be disturbed...it makes me really cranky.
8. You have one dollar in your pocket. What will you buy?
9. "One thing that always makes me laugh is ...."
10. What is one thing you could do today to help yourself reach a personal goal?
11. What is one thing you could do today to bless someone else?
      Be kind.
12. What is one thing you're looking forward to soon?

Hmmm...6/12 with only 1 word answers.  Guess I did okay!

Don't forget to link up at 2nd Cup of Coffee!


  1. I can see the background, very cute.

    Spaghetti's my go-to also.

    What's a corn stalker?

  2. I love the popsicles background...it is so cute. I did not do well with the ONE thing...one word is hard for me. I did go with ONE complete thought. I so have to explain....I did random thoughts...but took it a different way. Have a great week.

  3. Oh yes, Mary, I can definitely see your background and I love it!!!
    That was a great effort in trying to answer with only one word. I don't think I could even do as many as you did. I'm a "long answer" kind of person. :-)
    Heyyy...toilet paper was a great answer!!! That WOULD be wonderful to have a year's free supply of!
    And summer is just around the corner! It is supposed to be in the 80's and sunshiney next week here in SE Ohio! Yay!! Especially after a seige of rainy, dreary days!
    Loved reading you randomness!

  4. The background is there.
    I laughed at toilet paper. Why not gas??? Hmmm?? gas is expensive. You are so funny.

    Interesting about your Grandfather and the corn stalker. I hope he got over losing that.

    The key story? I have one similar to that one and it still bugs me that I lied!!!!

  5. I can see the background, too. It's really cute and very appropriate for summer. I think the questions were about 'one' thing--not that the answers had to be one word. At least I hope not--cuz I totally failed if that's the case. I almost said home as well to #3. Good answers.

  6. I love the background...I saw it yesterday and meant to comment on it.
    The corn stalker is an interesting little factoid.

    And of course I didn't even try the one word thing. I'm convinced I'm not capable of that : )

  7. Yep = I see the back ground... very cute!

    I am loving seeing the "history" question! CORN STALKER? That's awesome but bummer he didnt get the credit for it!

  8. Hi Mary, your new summer background is very cool and refreshing looking... I love it.
    Your answers were true to life.I bet your dad knew what happened to your car key..Dad's always know!! My husband knew our daughter was not telling the truth , when the mileage reading in her car was too high and she had gone to see a friend out of town..when he confronted her and she confessed..." how did you know? ".... dad always know!!!
    Have a great day. hugs, Baba

  9. Your background is great, and I had the same answer for #6! How funny!

  10. I see it! I see it! Very cute!

    There is no way I could answer anything with just one word, I babble too much :)

  11. Yes, I see it and it is very cute. What an adventure in #5. Loved reading your answers.

  12. I see your background also and I am on a laptop. Forgot today was Wednesday...may do my random dozen tomorrow.

    You were such a wild child! :)

  13. Yes, I see the cute background! And somehow I missed that we were supposed to give one word answers or even stick to the "one" theme. I must have scanned the insturctions too fast in my excitement to answer the questions! Oh well!

  14. Very cute background! Somehow I missed the theme this week even though I did the dozen. Read all those ones and never saw them until I came here. Hmmmm!

  15. I love the background! I also enjoyed your answers, especially the once upon a time story!
