I remember Bankerchick. She was a good blogging buddy, but she hung it up.

1. Tell us about any lawn or garden plans you have for this month. I don't have a lawn.

2. "Many things grow in the garden that were never sown there."~Thomas Fuller  What does this quote mean to you? That life gives us unintended consequences to contend with.

3. What's the first thing that comes to mind when you think about God? Love. He knows how hard I try.

4. If we were chatting in person, how would I know if you were nervous? I talk faster and my leg jiggles.

5. Do you like the color yellow? Would I find any in your home or wardrobe? I like it to look at, but I look hideous in it. My kitchen is yellow.

6. Daffodils, tulips, roses, sunflowers, day lily, black-eyed Susan...which yellow bloom on this list is your favorite? Roses. Though you left out my favorite: yellow carnations! 

7. Flip flops or bare feet? Bare feet


8. Fish out of water, big fish in a small pond, living in a fishbowl, packed in like sardines, this is a fine kettle of fish, plenty of fish in the sea, fish or cut bait...which fishy phrase most recently applies to some area of your life? Workwise, this week I had bigger fish to fry.

9. Have you ever been fishing? Did you catch a fish? If so did you keep it or throw it back? If you haven't been fishing is that something you'd like to try? I went fishing exactly once, when I was very young. (Kindergarten, maybe?) I caught a small fish and felt bad that it died on the bottom of the boat.

10. What's something you're always fishing for in your purse, wallet, desk, or kitchen junk drawer? Most recently it was my library card in my wallet.

11. Your favorite fish tale or movie? 

12. Are you sunrise, daylight, twilight or night? Explain why you chose your answer. Daylight. I like the color of the sky.

13. What's the oldest piece of clothing you own and still wear? I have a sweatshirt that's 20 years old. I don't throw things away unless I'm forced to.

14. What's been the best and worst part of your summer so far? The best part? Cubs baseball! The worst part? You selfish conspiracy theory fuckers who refuse to wear masks and are prolonging this pandemic for the rest of us. WWG1WGA, indeed!
Doesn't it get hot under that hat?


15. Are you a Jimmy Buffet fan? If so, what's your favorite JB tune?


  1. Your answer to #14 mirrors my thoughts exactly. Love the photo you chose to go with it. I forgot that Buffet did Come Monday, that's a pretty song.

  2. Liked your answers today. Especially #6, I like those too.
    Have a great Sunday my friend.

  3. #14! you go girl! Scream it out for me too!
    Great jb song! good answers!!

  4. You have the best answer for #2

  5. You know what I find amazing about #14 is that it is ok for schools to be in session. Why is that? Then also...many of the people I see yelling go back to school and get to work are people that are tucked safely in their homes. Looking at schools in a big picture way...many of us have elderly parents that we could take covid to. It is terrifying. I don't think any of us are worried about ourselves. Anyway, just a little input about that. My life is exactly the same as it was before. It is messed up. Do we have cases of covid in our school? Yes, we do. Are we closed down? No...because people need their kids in school so they can work. It has also gotten back to us that parents are sending kids to school knowing they have covid. The list goes on and on. I try to keep things light, but that is a trigger for me. I appreciate how much you do care about things being safe and trying to get back to normal as soon as possible. Loved your answers. Have a nice day!

  6. How did I forget the film A River Runs Through It? Or the song Come Monday? Yeesh, I'm slipping. I miss BankerChick, too.

  7. How did you get that Buffet to post in your blog? Dang it.
    Schools should NOT be in session! And I loved your rant. Yes, it must get hot under that tin hat! Stupid is as stupid does...
    We share a love of yellow, and not being able to wear it. I always blamed my Asiatic skin.
