Turning the Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. Elizabeth Lawrence is quoted as saying, 'Even if something is left undone, everyone must take time to sit still and watch the leaves turn." So have you done just that? And what did you leave undone in order to do so?
Actually, I sat on my Daddy's back porch a few weeks ago and just sat with him, literally watching the leaves turn. It was a nice time.

2. Since we're talking turning...what's one thing you feel you're doing 'every time you turn around'?
Changing the toilet paper roll, putting dishes in the dishwasher, figuring out what we're having for dinner...take your pick.

3. How hard is it for you to 'turn the other cheek?'
Hard. Harder than hard.

4. When did you last turn a drawer, your car, a room, or your entire house upside down looking for something? Did you find it?
A couple of months ago, I looked for my Bible. I usually keep it in a bag with some other religious things, but it wasn't there. I haven't found it yet.

5. 'One good turn deserves another'...were you most recently on the giving or receiving end of that sentiment?
I don't remember being on either side.

6. Red, yellow, and orange are the colors of fall. Also the colors of fruit. If you were permitted only one color of fruit in your diet, which would you choose? This question isn't as easy as it sounds, at least not for me.
Yellow. I love bananas, but unfortunately can't eat them very often.

7. The Hunt for Red OctoberOctober SkyHalloween...which 'October' film is your favorite?
I've never seen "October Sky", and "Halloween" scared the crap out of me, so I'll go with "Hunt for Red October". 

8. Insert your own random thought here.
Today in the paper, they ran a story of an 18 month old who crawled into one of those "claw machines" that have prizes in them. Grandmother said that he was playing with the door of the machine, then she got a text, looked away for a second, and he crawled in before she could grab him. She did, however, take a picture of him before the fire dept. freed him. According to the story, the fireman said it happens all the time. This was the first time I've heard of it...what about you?


  1. I've never heard of a toddler climbing into a claw machine. Strange.

  2. Your random about the child in the claw machine game....yes, I have actually heard of that before. I have no idea how it could happen, but it seems it does. Little ones must be watched constantly! It was another fun Hodgepodge!

  3. You should definitely rent October Sky! It's a great heartwarming story! I hope your dad is doing okay. Grief sneaks up oftentimes in unexpected places. Glad you're nearby and are able to stop in and visit with him often. Hope you find your Bible.

  4. That sounds like a wonderful time with your dad! That is true about the toilet paper roll.
    That is quite a story about the child climbing into the machine. I've never heard of that before!
    Hope your having a nice weekend.

  5. You'll cherish the memories you made with your dad.

    I have never heard of a child, or anyone, climbing into those machines.
    They should have given the child any toy he wanted for free.
