Hodgepodge for the 4th

Once again, Joyce has graciously provided us with questions, this time with a patriotic theme.  Want to join in?  Click on the button above, copy & paste the questions in your post, answer, then don't forget to link up so others will know you've joined in!

1. What makes you stand to your feet and cheer?
A good football play, a soccer goal being made, a child who has been working on a certain sound finally getting it, someone who has struggled at something achieving what they've struggled.
2. What's your favorite patriotic song?
God Bless America and the National Anthem.  (Sorry, couldn't pick just one!)
3. Do you believe that opposites attract? If you have a significant other are you opposites?
I do think opposites attract.  In some ways CH & I are opposites, but in other ways we aren't.  We do balance each other out, for the most part.
4. You're going to get a behind the scenes look someplace...where would you like that someplace to be?
The Vatican.
5. How far would you have to travel to ride a carousel (merry-go-round)? 
Just up to Dollywood, which is about 30-45 minutes away.  

6. When was the last time you saw fireworks? What was the occasion? Do you enjoy fireworks?
I have no idea.  I'm not real big on fireworks, after seeing them at the National Mall in DC.  Nothing else compares.  The Small Town used to have "Freedom Fest" with a pretty good display, but they didn't have it last year due to budget cuts.  I don't think they're going to have it this year, either.
7. Of all the 'beauty products' you own, what item do you consider to be the most overpriced?
I keep my products pretty simple.  Right now, I don't have anything that I would consider to be overpriced.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Last Saturday, CH & YS had the opportunity to see OS in his element...on the job at the river.  They said they had a great time, and were impressed by OS' guiding ability.  


  1. Great picture...looks like your son has a fun summer job!

  2. My BFF from grad school had that same summer job- she loved it!

    Hubs and I are opposites too...but we don't have that balance that y'all do.

  3. Great photo! That looks like a fun summer job, for sure.

  4. I love that picture. It looks so fun.

  5. Thanks for sharing that picture ... looks like fun!

    Sounds like a lot of places aren't going to have fireworks this summer ... either between budget cuts or fire risks.

  6. Liked # 1 answer!

    The Vatican would be an interesting place! If only someone would make a documentary for each of our answers. Curious minds want to know.

    River rafting...fun! My boys have gone and love it. I've still got to give a try someday.

    Happy 4th!

  7. Oooh! A behind the scenes look at the Vatican..good one!

  8. Loved your answers! My hubby and I are opposites too in many ways, but I think, in the ways that matter, we're just alike. Balance is a good thing.

  9. i had to squint to make sure your son wasn't our alaskan guide this week. ;) so much fun!

    cheering is definitely called for when a child finally gets a sound, indeed.

  10. Loved your answers to #1! I could not agree more!! And a WAR EAGLE to you!

  11. That's a GREAT action photo.
    Can't begin to imagine what it must be like to do that every day like your son does. What a guy!
