Playing catch-up again. We were in Maine with family, taking a much needed mental health break.


When was the last time you tried something new?  How did that go for you?

The something new for me was drinking with the granddaughters. I hadn’t done that with them before. It felt awkward at first because as a grandmother or even as a mother because you don’t see them in your mind’s eye as adults. Once, I got past the creepy feel, we had a ball. Conversation was good, margaritas were tasty but this woman should have stopped at one. But stubborn as I am I didn’t want to be the light weight drinker of the crew. I decorated myself in vomit shortly after we dropped the girls off but thankfully I rose the next day with no hangover.

What’s the most sensible thing you’ve ever heard someone say?

Follow your heart, it will never lead you astray.

How old would you be if you didn’t know how old you are?

51, it was a very good year.

Lastly, I’ll be doing one “Halloween” themed question per week during October.  Those who don’t observe the holiday are welcome to answer or to ignore it as they wish.

Fun  CREEPY Halloween Question:

Have you ever seen a ‘fresh’ corpse (aka dead body)?

Yup, I have several times. The image stays in your mind for some time.

Scratchy, itchy, moldy straw stuffed in places that hurt
Crows landing on my outstretched arms
Arrogantly squawking in my ear, pecking at my hat
Raw winds with chilly temperatures freezing my tush
Even the farmer has abandoned me in the field
Caw, caw, go away can’t you give me moments piece
Rotted vegetables left under my dangling feet
Over my head the sun shines brightly but isn’t warm
Why, farmer did you leave me here withering

I’m sorry about the aftermath of the margarita fest, but sometimes…and it’s great you got to spend time with family whatever the occasion! Remember that part and forget the urp. Yeah. “A very good year?” LOL!! Tip of the chapeau to ol’ Frankie….Now I’ll have to pull up that song on my You-tube channel. Great music!! Thanks Lyn and have a wonderful week!
