The Key to the Hodgepodge

1. What would you say is the key to success?
Being happy.

2. Have you ever been to the Florida Keys? Any desire to visit that part of the US of A?
The past couple of years, CH & I have spent New Year's in The Keys.  That is the perfect time to head down there!  

3. When and where did you last see a real live donkey? Monkey? Turkey?
I saw a donkey the other day, but can't remember where.  I saw a monkey (well, actually a chimp) last summer at the Copenhagen zoo.  I saw a turkey in the mountains not long ago.

4. An old Portuguese proverb says, 'Beware of the door with too many keys.'What do you think this means? Share an example of how this has proven true or false in your own life. 
To me, it means that something is locked up with multiple locks.  In other words, it is something that is not to be trusted.  

5. Besides your home, vehicle, and special jewelry, what is something you keep under lock and key?
My passport.

6. When did you last get keyed up about something?
I can't believe I can't think of something!  I get keyed up from time to time...thanks to CH.

7. Who thinks we need an easy one right about now?  Key lime pie...yes please or no thank you?
Oh, yes!  Especially if it's fried from a little place in The Keys:

8. Insert your own random thought here.
The first week of school is halfway over.  Actually, it is halfway over since we're out of school tomorrow because of election day.  Does anybody else think it's weird that we're having elections on a Thursday?  


  1. Fried key lime pie? Sounds so unhealthy but oh so delicious!

    I thought elections were held on Tuesdays everywhere.

  2. Thursday elections do sound weird to me too.

  3. I don't even keep track of election days anymore, because we signed up for voting by mail. So much easier, and we get our votes in early.

    I enjoyed your Hodgepodge!! Lots of people are saying they love the Keys. Joe and I were not impressed. Maybe we should go again, since it has been 15-20 years since we went there.

  4. I do think it is unique to have an election day on Thursday; is this routine or a special election? I never heard of a fried key lime pie, but that looks delicious!


  5. Election day on a Thursday? Yep, a bit odd. I believe you're right about the key/door answer. We start back to school next week. The kids start the week after. I am NOT ready.

  6. Sounds like a great place to spend New Year's. Well now I have to go to the Keys and try that fried key lime pie! That is a strange day, aren't they usually a Tuesday?

  7. Remember when all elections were more or less held at the same time of year too? It's like year round voting up here. Thursday is odd-I agree. We shared a piece of friend key lime pie last week. So rich I could only eat a few bites (thankfully!), but so so good.
