Welcome to this weeks Hodgepodge. Joyce, From This Side of the Pond has been busy putting together this weeks questions. We give the answers, so join in and lets have fun.
1. What is a pet peeve you have when vacationing?
Last November we traveled down to North Carolina and we had our dogs with us. We paid extra for the dogs, we paid a lot extra for our dogs. The kids in the next room made more noise than our dogs. I wonder if they paid extra for the kids?
2. Would you describe yourself as a light packer or do you need everything in your closet plus the kitchen sink?
Well now, really!!! I don't need everything plus the kitchen sink but I will pack everything I might need plus the entire bathroom. I need light clothes just in case the the sun comes out, warmer clothes because once the sun goes down, I'll be cold. I need curling iron, make up, hats, sweaters, open toe shoes and closed toe ones. Can't leave without the electronics you know.... all of them. Well Hubby says I pack like I'm mobilizing for an assault on Iwo Jima! Don't we all pack that way???
3. What's the best lesson a child ever taught you?
Ever hear a small child pray? They are so very thankful for EVERYTHING! They thank God for the food, the plates, the dessert, the dog, the flowers, and they mean it. They are very thankful for everything they have. That is what i hope I have learned, be thankful for anything.
4. Share one piece of advice you'd give a recent graduate as they attempt to enter the job market?
I guess I would say, be honest, don't try to be every ones friend, work hard, be a person of integrity.
5. What's your favorite lemon something?

6. Flat sandal, wedge, heel...your favorite footwear?
Where am I going? A wedding, Carnival, the back yard? What time of year is it? Summer, Winter? If I'm just hanging out in the summer than flip flops are my favorite footwear.

7. What do you like best about a beach holiday? If you're not a beach lover (GASP!!) what do you dislike the least?
I'm not a huge beach holiday kind of girl, sorry all. I like fried dough and other fresh sea food that we get there. Something in the salt air makes the sea food taste better. I don't like how crowded the beach is. Our beach in our little state is very small so it is crowded. I don't like the cold water, all the cars and all the people and all the stores selling whatever! I would rather be out on a lake, in the woods away from all the crowed.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
In our state, dog owners are required to show proof of rabies whenever. Instead of carrying a copy of the rabies certificate, I take a photo of them and keep them in my cell phone. If I need it, I have it and can email it wherever it needs to go. Easy Peasy.... That is my random thought.
Now it's your turn. What are your answers?
