Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Do you play games of luck/chance for money? Have you ever played bingo for money? Visited a casino?  Placed a bet on a horse? Bought a lottery ticket?
I've never visited a casino or bet on a horse.  I did bet on a dog once at the dograce.  A looong time ago.  I lost.  Definitely not in the lucky column very much!
When we lived in Ga., the people who worked in the "itinerant building" would pitch in a dollar for the "big lottery", but we never won.

2.  Will you be preparing and/or dining on the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage meal this St. Patrick's Day? Mashed-baked-hash browned-french fried...your favorite way to have potatoes?
I'm not sure.  We'll be coming home from our first camping trip since Christmas Break, and I usually make Corned Beef & Cabbage in the slow cooker.  Plus, it's on a Sunday this year, and Sunday's are our Mexican night.

3. What's the last thing you felt 'green with envy' over? 
A couple of my coworkers went to the Pink concert last week.  I LOVE her.  Then, one of the 2 coworkers went to the Bon Jovi concert a few days later.  

4.  What's at the end of your rainbow?
Happy, healthy boys  young men who are self-sufficient and love what they have chosen to do for a living.

5. March 12th marks the anniversary of the death of Anne Frank (June 12, 1929-March, 1945).  Anne's diary detailing her time spent hiding from the Nazi's during the war ranks as one of the best selling books of all time.  Besides your blog, do you keep any sort of diary or journal?  Was this a habit you developed as a child or is journaling something new for you?
I don't keep a diary or journal and never have.  Excluding my blog, of course!

6. What's an item in your home or closet that contains every color of the rainbow?
I don't think I have anything at all.

7.  Write a limerick with you as the subject.  You can do it!!  Just remember this is a family friendly blog...don't make me get out my wooden spoon. 
For real???  Sorry, just not feeling it right now, but I can't wait to see how creative everybody else is!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
I have a confession to make:  I peeked to see who Sean (The Bachelor) was going to pick.  But, I wasn't sure if I had the correct information, so I watched every week.  Last night I thought I had it wrong, right up until the very end.  I am very pleased at who the new Bachelorette is; I hoped they would pick her.  Just in case you had to DVR the finale, I'm doing my best to not use names!


  1. So...did you consult Reality Steve, too? He was spot on about Sean's choice...I just had to find out! I can't stand not knowing! OK...after reading about your co-workers seeing Bon Jovi in concert, I have another reason to be envious! :)

  2. I like your personal pot of gold :)

  3. Looks like both of us will pass on corned beef and cabbage this year due to being on the road. I can't wait to see and hear about your camping trip.

  4. Hope you have a great camping trip.

  5. Yep, we're close to each other... Pink & Bon Jovi are both here too... back to back. Nashville & Louisville must always be back to back stops :)

    I wasnt too happy with the Bachelor choice. But like its going to work out anyways :) haha!

    I'm glad about the Bachlorette too. I liked her a lot.

  6. Have fun camping. We are chosing to take a staycation....during my Spring Break. I am tired...and just want to read, write, crochet. Just be quiet.

  7. We always have a running ticket for the lottery. We won $11,000 a few years ago. Like the end of your rainbow. I've never watched any of those bachelor or ette shows. I'm not watching Idol this season but thinking of tuning in tonight to see who the final twelve are!

  8. We don't watch The Bachelor but glad your pick won.
