Thursday Thunks #1

This week's crazy questions are brought to you by Berleen, the color Cotton Candy Pink and the number 3,333,333,331.

1. You are driving down the road and there is a puddle in the road. A big puddle. Not one that will really wreck your car or anything, but a big puddle. There is no other cars in front of you or behind you - do you drive through the puddle or drive around it? Through it so I can enjoy the splash.

2. Go to Google Images, type in any word that comes to mind and post the 1st picture you see.

A college calls you up and says that you have been selected to take get any degree that you want on their dollar.... what do you choose? Film appreciation.

4. Are you blogging on a laptop or desktop? Laptop

5. Which store, excluding a grocery store, do you shop at most often? Border's

6. My daughters tried out for the school musical last night. Were you ever in a school play/musical? Which one? No school musicals for this gal.

7. I read yesterday that a school PTA group wants to try to ban white bread, cakes, brownies or any other "treat" from their lunch menus... plus make kids' lunchboxes brought from home not include any "junk food". Thoughts on that one? As a barren spinster, I don't think I'm qualified.

8. How many people can your kitchen table seat? No table in my kitchen. But the kitchen floor does comfortably serve three cats.

9. What time is it right now? After 4:00 PM

10. Walk out the front door of your house/apartment, turn right, walk 2 blocks. What do you see? The Competitive Foot, a store that specializes in workout attire.

Thinking of you today, Mr. President

Happy Birthday to one of the heroes of my girlhood -- one of the few who actually deserves the adulation of schoolchildren. I fell in love with American history by reading about Abraham Lincoln. He's a leader who changed the world in his own time and continues to inspire today.

This is an old Life magazine shot of his living room in Springfield, IL. I've visited his home many times, and plan on going there many more. Hopefully, this year I'll bring my nephew. I am proud to be from The Land of Lincoln.
