Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Picture postcards were first printed back in the mid-1800's and deltiology is the official name for postcard collecting. When did you last send a postcard?  Receive one? Do you save postcards sent to you? Do you collect and/or send postcards when you travel?
The last time I sent a postcard was to my friend Patty's kids.  They were asking for postcards from around the country for a class project.  In return, they sent me a few from Tx.!

2. What treat do you most like to indulge in while on vacation?
I really like to indulge in whatever the area's specialties are.

3. Are you good at hiding your feelings?
Absolutely not.  I wear my heart on my sleeve.

4. Does your town/city/county still deliver telephone books to your home? Do you check the yellow pages when searching for a local business number or has the internet replaced the phone book in your home?
Yes, they do.  Sometimes I'll check the book, other times I check the internet.

5. Would you rather be first or last?
Last so I know what's going on!

6. July is National Park and Recreation Month (in America, but everyone can still play along)...where and when were you last in a park?  Did you participate in any recreational activities while you were there?
It depends on what kind of park you're talking about.  National Park:  Great Smoky Mountains.  It's in my backyard, but I don't think I've visited since last fall when we went camping.
State:  CH & I camped in a State Park over last weekend, and we're going to a different park this weekend.  The one we're going to this weekend is close to the college YS will be going to, and he has orientation at the beginning of the week.  So, we're killing 2 birds with 1 stone!
I was in the Small Town's park this morning with Pepper.  I decided (now that my summer break is just about over) that it would be a good idea to get my butt out of bed and take her for a walk.

7.  What was one of your worst ideas?
Geez, I have NO idea.  I would say maybe stenciling ivy on my cabinets in our SC house.  By the time we moved, I wanted them OFF.  Wonder if the new owners got rid of it?

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Just like I told Debby, I'm really trying not to drag out the recap of my trip, but there's so much to share!  I'm already on Post #8, and I've got a few more posts to write.  I've been putting off doing one post in particular, because I want to make sure I do the topic justice.  


  1. Loving reading the posts about your trip - I think I missed a couple though so going to have to go back and make sure I don't miss anything!

  2. Love answers. We are so much alike. I live in a parsonage and one of the walls has a stenciled vine over the door way....and above one of the window walls is the quote, "Give us our daily bread." I love it. I am a huge fan of ivy and I have a bread tray I made that has the same quote I use in the dining room. They want to repaint over it when they do paint the house sometime this year and I am hoping to talk them out of it. I guess if they do I can get one of those peal off things they sell and put it up...then take it down if and when we leave.

  3. I'm a heart on my sleeve kind of girl too. Sometimes its not fun.

  4. I think you definitely need to recap your whole trip. It would be fun to bind all those posts into a blog book as a keepsake. I'm reading them in batches as I'm not on the computer too much these days. Too much summer to be enjoyed away from the computer!

  5. You never know - that ivy may have sold the house for you :)

  6. I wonder when the phone books will stop. I know my father's generation still uses them and I do occasionally. Your doing a great job with your trip posts.

  7. The Smoky Mountains are absolutely one of my favorite places on earth! Hope to move back one day! Please be sure to stop by my blog today! I'm having an Easy Canvas giveaway and would sure love for you to join in!

  8. I loved reading your hodgepodge of answers. I am always fascinated by these post. I truly enjoy learning fun, interesting and random facts about fellow bloggers.
