Meet Me on Monday: 20th Edition

According to Java:

"Blogging is a funny thing...we tell our most intimate thoughts for all to read and yet most of the time I find myself sitting and wondering, "who is this person!?"  I know them...but yet I don't know them!  I want to know who the person is behind all those words so I thought of a great way for all of us to "meet" each other!

Every Sunday I will post five get to know you questions that you can copy and paste into your own Monday post and we can all learn a little more about each and every one of us!!

"Its a great way to to meet new friends and for others to get to know me Monday at a time!!!" quoted by the Chacogirl!! I will make this SIMPLE and FUN!!"

This week's questions:

1.  Have you ever been on a cruise?
No.  We've been talking about it, but haven't done it yet.
2.  What is your favorite way to eat eggs?
Scrambled.  Most definitely.
3.  What is your favorite reading material?
Books, although blogs are closing in quickly!
4.  Name all the pets that you have ever had?
Growing up we had a dog, Socks, but he was hit by a car in front of the house where I live now.  (I actually just realized that...weird.)  One of my sisters brought home a cat (Elton), but he ran off after my daddy (farm boy, and all) fixed him with a rubber band.  We also had a dog named Pup, but we had to put him down after he bit a neighbor.
Since I've been married, I've had several dogs:  Gizmo (from The Gremlins), Murdock (From The A Team), Duke (because what else do you call a Pit Bull?), Petey (again, just because), Scooter (CH had always wanted a dog named Scooter), Rusty (I have no idea why), Abby (CH found her after she had been abandoned), Dixie (from Designing Women),  Molly (no idea why), and now we have Ally (from Ally McBeal) & Pepper (because she was almost all black when we got her).
5.  Were you ever a girl/boy scout?
I was a girl scout, but not a very good one.  Bad memories:  When I wore my Brownie dress to school in 2nd Grade, I got my 1 and only paddling.  I never wore it again.  Then, when I was older, we went to the girl scout camp and spent the night.  They had these "tents" with wooden floors.  I heard mice the whole night long scurrying around, and, with my imagination, just knew they were going to be running over me.  I never went back there again.  And soon after that I stopped being a girl scout.


  1. Wait...I can't comment on anything besides your daddy "fixing" the cat with a rubber band. is that even possible??

  2. Love the Girl Scout story! That would have cured me, too. I linked up today--hope you'll stop by.

  3. The only thing I liked about Girl Scouts was the cookie sale. And even then I hated selling them, but LOVED eating them. These days mom and day take the order form to work and do it all! Parental participation...yeah, that's it!

  4. I joined in. I like you answers. Have a great Monday!

  5. I got paddled sort of in second grade. This kid George took my book and I TOOK IT BACK. Mrs. Hateful, (real name Garret) always held out kids' hands and slap the palms with her ruler. She did it to me and George got NOTHING. I still hate that woman.

  6. We had an Abbey that had been abandoned and we took her in. And we have a Dixie now.

    Have a great week!

  7. you have had lots of animals!! wow! I too wonder about the rubber band method of fixing the cat. Surely not scientific, but effective?

    I never made a good girl scout either, the outdoors and nature did me in.

    hoping you are enjoying your day!


  8. If I heard mice when I was camping that would totally 'cure' me of ever wanting to go again too.
    Fixing the cat with a rubber band is definitely a farm thing to do. I've heard of a few farmers here doing the same thing here but with other animals.
    Have a great week!

  9. I wanted to say thank you for stopping by my blog and commenting... I know I'm a little late responding, but I am now following. I look forward to reading more of your stuff.
    All the best,

  10. You must find a cruise ship... and soon. ;)

  11. I missed this weeks Meet Me, but I hope to join in next Monday and maybe answer these questions too.
    I haven't been a cruise either.
    Enjoyed reading your answers.
