Welcome to Life Through Bifocals

Life is not always clear and easy to figure out. So grab a cup of coffee and your bifocals and let's see what we can see.

Thank you Joyce for this weeks questions, click on the button above or answer here. The important thing is to join in and have fun.

1. How many students were in your high school graduating class? Did you know most, if not all of them?
Our graduating class had about 650 students. Several small towns fed into the high school where I went. No, I didn't know most of them. The one person that I did know very well, I married 3 weeks after we graduated.
Our Senior Prom 1972

2. What was the last thing you photographed?
A card that I made for a friend. We celebrated his birthday at Sunday small group.

3. Pickles-love 'em or loathe 'em? If its love what's something you eat that needs a pickle?
I love pickles, sweet bread and butter pickles.   I love subs and hamburgers with lots of pickles on them.

4. What's a stereotype you seem to perpetuate without meaning to?
Joyce always seems to ask a hard question.  I had to ask Hubby and after agreeing not to hit him, he told me that I am directionally challenged.  It's true, I can get lost in anyplace.  I drive until I run out of gas or hit an ocean, which ever comes first.  And considering how far the ocean is from our home, that's a long way.

5. Ever been horse back riding? If so is it something you enjoy? If not, do you have any interest? Did you watch the Kentucky Derby? Will you be watching the last leg of the Triple Crown this weekend?
The last time I was on a horse was about 7 years ago.  We went to Yosemite National Park and my son and I went for a ride on horseback.  It was part of a guided tour and it was very fun.  I did not watch the Kentucky Derby and will not be watching the last leg this weekend.  Not really an interest of mine.

6. What's your favorite 'wedding' movie?
I really had to google "Wedding Movies" since there are so many out there.  I did like this one.  It was cute.

7. What is one 'tourist attraction' in the USA that you'd like to see in person?
Old Faithful.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I have two thoughts this week
1. Looks like we are getting more rain this week. I'm really tired of rain! And what is rain with sun??  At least the temps start to come up!  Hopefully by the weekend, it will be sunny and warm.
2. Summer is officially 14 day away!! I'm so excited about that!

OK, now it's your turn. 


  1. I'll take some of your rain. It is dry here. I am actually getting ready to turn on the sprinkler to water the garden.

    Enjoy your day!

  2. That birthday card was an awesome idea.

  3. We've had lots of rain too but our weekend is looking good. My patio pots are swimming!

    You were a young bride : )

  4. I'm sitting here watching the birds eating at the feeders in the pouring down rain. And I think I saw the garden veggies grow right before my eyes! LOL I can take a pickle by itself, but not on anything. Ew. :)

  5. I didn't think of the Wedding Planner. That was a cute movie too!
    We've had thunder storms on and off again. I can't wait for warmer weather this weekend so I can finally get in the garden.

  6. Some of those highs seem pretty low to me! We're getting rain, too! Perhaps it will be gone by Friday :)

    I'm sure the recipient of your card loved it :)

  7. I knew my husband in HS too. We dated sophomore year for a few months and then not again until after graduation. We married 3 years later. Wedding Planner is one of my favorites. Old Faithful is awesome and I need to see it again someday. Enjoy the rest of your week. Hope the rain stops!

  8. Old Faithful...that's another one I want to see some day. I'm rather directionally challenged too!

  9. I just stumbled over from Fiddledeedee. Apparently, according to your screen shot of the weekly weather forcast, I live the next town over from you, too! :)

    I'm with you on being directionally challenged. It's a sad day when you have to call the husband for directions. The next town over...

  10. I would like to see Old Faithful, too. I dream of a long road trip out west to see sights like the Grand Canyon, Grand Tetons, Glacier National Park, Mt. Rushmore, Yosemite, etc. But then I don't know that I could be away from my grands that long ... and whenever I start thinking about planning a road trip, my thoughts always go to the beach. ;-)


Thank you for stopping by today and if you left me a comment, thank you twice!
