Spooky Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. What's something you're dealing with that might be described as tricky?
I have no idea.  (Aren't I off to an amazing start this week?)

2.  What's your treat of choice?
Funny you should ask.  I saw this yesterday in Kroger, and have no idea how it ended up in my cart:
Seriously.  Did you even know there was such a thing???

3. Did you/will you carve a jack-o-lantern this month? Which real (living or dead) or fictional 'Jack' would you most like to meet in person? Why?
Nah.  I quit doing that a loooong time ago!  Hmmm...Jack Kennedy maybe.

4.  In your opinion, what's the grossest sounding word in the English language?
The "F" word.  I hate that word.

5. When did your heart last skip a beat?
When my daddy called a few weeks ago.  He very rarely calls me, so my heart skipped a beat when I heard his voice on the other end of the phone.  There was a dog that had gotten into their fenced-in back yard.  He had no idea how it got in there.  I had YS take some food down for them so they could feed him until they found the owner.  Daddy called me back a few minutes after YS had gotten down there to let me know that it was their back-door neighbor's dog!  He must've crawled over the fence.

6. Monster Mash by Bobby 'Boris' Picket, Michael Jackson's ThrillerWerewolves of London by Warren Zevon, or Ray Parker Jr.'s Ghostbusters...your favorite 'scary' tune?
I don't really care for "Thriller", although my boys are obsessed with the album cover:

7.   It was a dark and stormy night when______________________________.
My sister & I were at home by ourselves and we heard a creaking noise coming from the basement.  We ended up calling the police; they looked around and said it was just the wind blowing the garage door.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
I saw this on "The Bridge" as I drove by yesterday:
As you may or may not know, there is a Packer who is from the Small Town.  He played high school football with my 2 oldest sons, & I graduated from high school with his dad.  He was injured a couple of weeks ago, and will be out for a few more weeks.  I saw on his twitter post that the middle school sent him well-wishes.  He is definitely our hero!


  1. I chose Jack Kennedy. Hub and #1 daughter are huge Packer fans!

  2. Basements in general give me the shivers, noise or no noise. I love the bridge!!

  3. I tooooooooooo, I despise the "F" word. It's ugly. Thing is, that word didn't even cross my mind.

  4. I certainly agree with you about the "F" word. When I hear it I get a shiver down my spine.

  5. I am not a fan of the "f" word either....but I was not evening thinking along those lines. Love the random thought and the picture. That is wonderful and yes, he would be a hero for sure.

  6. I don't like the "f" word either, swearing is a turn off!

  7. Your dark and stormy night made me smile. It reminded me of one that happened when my brothers and I were home alone. I may have to blog about it someday.

  8. I'm with your sons...love Thriller and the album cover! Sure do miss MJ and his incredible talent! No..never heard of that candy before, but I'll be keeping my eyes open for it!

  9. Those Tootsie Rolls look yummy! I don't like the "F" word either. I do love Michael Jackson and Thriller was a great album. That was sweet of the middle school to send the football player well wishes and I love the bridge sign!!

  10. I hate the "F" word too.

    We don't do pumpkins either. I do have a fake jack-o-lantern we put out sometimes.

  11. I love Thriller but the lovelies and I love to howl so I chose Werewolves of London. LOL I am not a fan of the "F" word either. Wait- who is your Packer????

  12. I so agree with you on #4. Cool sign on "the bridge".

  13. The OSU Marching Band recently did a half time show honoring MJ. The show was awesome, truly the bad is magnificent. However, I've never liked MJ and can't figure out why so many honor him. He really wasn't a very honorable man in life so I don't get the bigger then life afterwards.
