Friday's Feast #31

How many times per day do you usually laugh? Well, I have my "go along to get along" laugh, which while insincere, does come in handy at work. Then there's my genuine laugh, which I'm fortunate to do at least a couple times a day. My oldest friend always makes me laugh, so does my nephew, so do the cats … I'm lucky. 

What do your sunglasses look like? I have many, many pairs. My current pair have black frames and very dark, dark lenses -- important when the bright sun hits the fresh snow.

You win a free trip to anywhere on your continent, but you have to travel by train. Where do you go? Hmmm … I don't know if Amtrak goes there, but my choice would be Key West. The drive to the island from Miami is tiresome, and the flight is scary. A nice, long, relaxing train ride would be nice.

Main Course
Name one thing you consider a great quality about living in your town/city. We're diverse. Four definite seasons (and boy, are we ever in winter now!), blacks/hispanics/asians/whites all live together (right on this floor of my condo building) … we even have 7 screens on our movie theater.

If the sky could be another color, what color do you think would look best? Blue is my favorite color, so I'm keeping the sky blue. But a specific bright, pale blue with only a few clouds. Summer sky. A sky meant to have baseballs sailing through it. (Alfonso Soriano, I miss you!)

What a happy trio!

Bookmama knows how I worry, and was good enough to send me this photo. It does make me feel better, because I want a united party going forth and kicking ass after the convention.

Looking at this photo, I feel proud. An African-American, a woman and a millworker's son are all in the running. Isn't this what they taught us in school -- that anyone can grow up to become President? It's finally true.

Thank you, Bookmama.
