Wednesday Hodgepodge: Summer Fun.

Thank you Joyce for this weeks questions. You can join the fun by clicking on the button.

1. How has your hometown changed since you were a kid? What has changed most about the neighborhood you grew up in?
My hometown got bigger! More people, and a lot more stores.  The street where I grew up  only had about a dozens homes, now the street if full of houses and the ball field across the street has gotten smaller, but it does still look like the "burbs". I grew up in the 50's and there were lots of shoe factories, there was lots of work. They are all gone, the factories and the jobs. That is sad.

2. What song makes you laugh?
This is just funny because I have a cousin who went through this and her husband ended up being her brother!  I had a good laugh over this!!!

3. Are you a fan of Harry Potter? Read the books? Seen any/all of the movies? Will you be standing in line somewhere close to midnight later this week? For those of you playing along today who live outside the US or UK is Harry Potter a phenomenon in your part of the world?
Oh YES! I have all the books and all the movies. I've been watching them all week to catch up and get ready for the end. Since Hubby works 3rd shift, we will not be a midnight viewer as it were but come Saturday, we will be in line waiting for it and I will have my house colors on -Ravenclaw btw.

4. If the truth hurts, will you tell a lie? Are we better off as a society in a world that allows no form of deception whatsoever?
Wow - I never want to lie and try to tell the truth always. I think the way we tell the truth can often take the sting away from any pain that may be caused by the truth. Sometimes I can be tactful and sometimes not so much.

5. What is your favorite 'sauteed in garlic and butter' food? Or garlic and olive oil if that makes you feel better.
Any veggie. I love veggies sauteed in garlic and butter.That is one thing that made living a low carb lifestyle hard. More meat, less veggies!

6. Attending any reunions this summer/year? High school? family? Other? Do these events stir up excitement or dread?
No I'm not attending any of those activities this summer, but they do stir up excitement when I get together with friends that I've not seen in a while.

7. Lilac, hydrangea, peony...pick one.
                                                                Hydrangea, they last longer up here.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
This was the saddest little light house that I saw on our vacation. It's really small and it's automated so no need for a person. It just sits in the water and for some reason, it looks so small and lonely. It really should have another one to keep it company.  I think all light houses should be large and have lots of room in them and someone lives inside!

Thanks Joyce for fun questions this week.


  1. What sort of veggie allowance do you have on your low carb diet? I couldn't last without my veggies!

    Love that video!

  2. Your song was too funny. Poor little lighthouse. I love lighthouses and I agree with you they need to have someone living inside. Wouldn't that be a cool place to live?

  3. Lighthouses are my favorite things to see-poor little guy :(
    Great video!

  4. Everyone's blue hydrangeas are so pretty! I have hydrangea envy. That little lighthouse is kind of cute. :)

  5. That little lighthouse does look lonely. I've always thought it would be the coolest thing EVER to live in a lighthouse.

    My hometown got bigger too, but the people are still narrow minded as ever.

  6. The lighthouse does look a little lonely all by itself, out in the water!

  7. That song is funny. So glad you like Harry Potter. I have only seen a few of them. That is pretty sad about the little light house. Wouldn't it be cool to live in one. Of course a bigger one than that one!
