Hot & Steamy Wednesday Hodgepodge


1. How often do you check the weather? How do you check the weather?
On a "normal" day, I'll usually listen/watch the weather with my favorite meteorologist in the morning.  Just in case you forgot what a cutie he is, here's a reminder:
 I say "normal", because if there's a chance of snow (which equals snowday, a day off!) I'll look at it several times/day.  You've heard the saying, "If you don't like the weather, stick around 5 minutes and it will change"?  That is applicable to the area around the Small Town.  They could call for a blizzard one minute, and change it to rain the next.

2. Since this is volume 84 of the Wednesday Hodgepodge, and since I got married in 1984, and since I'm attending a wedding this weekend it only seems right to post something related here.

"Happiness in marriage is entirely a matter of chance. If the dispositions of the parties are ever so well known to each other or ever so similar beforehand, it does not advance their felicity in the least. They always continue to grow sufficiently unlike afterwards to have their share of vexation; and it is better to know as little as possible of the defects of the person with whom you are to pass your life."

Agree or Disagree. Why?
I met my husband in Sept. of '83, and we got married in May, '84.  From Jan. to April, he was in Tx. going to Army Medic School, so we didn't even see each other for about 3 months of that.  We definitely didn't know each other's "defects", but after 28 years of marriage, I'd say it worked for us.  
3. Do you like to dance? Have you ever taken dance lessons?
In my house, yes, although the boys seem to be embarrassed even when there's no one around.  I've never taken dance lessons, and it shows!  I don't think it's this bad, though:

4. Fresh from the oven peach pie or home made peach ice cream? Pick one.
Not a big fan of peaches, either way.  If I had to pick one (which apparently I do!), I'd say pie.
5. Should people accept unfairness and learn to make the best of it?
ABSOLUTELY.  Not everything in life is fair:  put your big girl panties on and get on with it.
6. The top five all time summer movie blockbusters (released between May and August and grossing at least 100 million dollars) are-Jaws, Raiders of the Lost Ark, Star Wars (the original), Ghostbusters, and ET. Which one's your favorite?
Ghostbusters:  "We came, we saw, we kicked its a**!"

7. If given the chance, would you like to visit the moon?
Are you kidding?  There is so much of this world I haven't seen!
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Laika loves the game of "get on the couch and see if mama will give up".
As one of my sil said:  she's just all kind of cuteness!

    Love the video of your fur-baby too... animals are so funny in the way they act & their personality.

  3. I check the weather a lot more often if there is a weather "event" going on too. If there are rain or snow storms nearby, I pretty much turn on the Weather Channel and leave the TV on all day!
