Last Wednesday Hodgepodge of the Summer

Looks like this is the last Hodgepodge of the summer!  Come on, Fall!!!

1. When did you last sing happy birthday to someone? When were you last sung to? Does that embarrass you or do you enjoy being the center of attention on your special day?
I sang "Happy Birthday" to my daddy on Sept. 4th.  My parents call all of us and sing "Happy Birthday" on our birthdays.

2.  Name a famous or 'infamous' person (living or deceased) who shares your birth day and month. Is that someone you'd like to meet in person if it were possible?
Sam Walton.  I suppose it would be neat to meet the original "Walmartian".

3. Someone hands you a box tied up in a lovely bow...what are you hoping to find inside?
I'm not much of a jewelry person...I would say tickets to someplace I haven't been.  Or, it could be tickets to someplace I've already been!

4. What can you guarantee about yourself?
I will do something to make a complete idiot out of myself.  Happens more times than I care to think about!

5. Talking art and beautiful cities here...'The Last Supper' in the Santa Maria della Grazie Abbey in Milan Italy or 'The Mona Lisa' in The Louvre, Paris...which would you most like to see up close and in person?  Why?
The Last Supper because,'s in Italy.

6. Your favorite dessert?
Cake, ice cream, chocolate.  I'm not too picky about my dessert!  

7. This coming weekend marks the official start of autumn (in the Northern hemisphere)...what is something you do to get ready for fall? What is one thing you're looking forward to on your fall calendar? Spring or fall-which do you prefer?
I LOVE fall!  Can't wait for it to get cool enough to have a campfire at a campsite!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Did anybody watch "Dancing with the Stars" Monday night?  I was amazed at how well most of the contestants did.  I felt really bad for Bill Nye...I couldn't tell if he was suppose to be that stiff, or if it was just him.  I love Valerie Harper.  That being said, I did feel like she got the "sympathy" scores.  I definitely didn't feel she was as good as some of the other ones who scored as high as she.


  1. I completely forgot about "Dancing With the Stars"! I'll have to set the DVR to record it so I don't miss any other episodes. Fall is definitely my fav. season, too...especially in Tennessee! :)

  2. We haven't had TV for two years now, I don't miss it at all. Altho, we do have DVD sets of NCIS and GRIMM. LOL

    Had to laugh at your guardian angel. That could be me too I suppose. the reference to Walmartian. Never heard of that, but I sure will remember it from now on.

  3. I've never gotten in to DWTS. I just told hubs we need to get more firewood. This is perfect weather for a fire in the outdoor pit. We have two patio heaters as well, so add a blanket and it's perfect. We're at 39 degrees this morning! Definitely fire weather!

  4. I have DWTS recorded, but haven't watched it yet. I was shocked to hear that Valerie Harper was a contestant!

    A campfire sounds really nice, and it's a perfect fall activity :)

  5. We haven't watched "Dancing with the Stars" yet. It is on DVR and will catch up soon.

  6. I think she did get the sympathy vote - but I think she kept trying to remind them to be fair... they were wrapped up in the story though... I get it. When its Latin week for her, I hope they judge fairly.

    Bill Nye - oh wow - rough.

    I was GIDDY about Amber!!! Loved to see a more robust gal shake it - & shake it WELL!!!

  7. I wish I watched Dancing with Stars...but Monday night is a no television night for me. I rarely watch. Bill Nye would be stiff...he is stiff on television....and I so love Valerie Harper. I wish I had seen it.

  8. I'm pretty sure my guardian angel looks like yours. All. The. Time.

  9. Truly we must have the same guardian angel. Looking forward to some cooler weather-love sitting around a campfire.

  10. That is so sweet that your parents call and sing Happy Birthday to all of you. to somewhere we have been would be awesome! I don't regularly watch Dancing With The Stars but I did watch on Monday to see who was dancing and they were excellent. I was very surprised for the first day.
