Meet Me On Monday

Welcome to the 37th edition of 
"Meet Me On Monday!"
Each week Java posts a set of questions to help
us get to know each other better. Visit her
to play along or to check out the links
to other players.

1.  What is your favorite way to eat potatoes? 
I like potatoes prepared so many ways but I think baked is my favorite, loaded is good but I especially want sour cream, butter and cheese.
2.  What was the last package that was delivered to your house?
A book...I think it was the one by Fannie Flagg for book club in May.
3.  What is your favorite scent that you love to smell?
I've had no sense of smell for about 20 years now....however I always loved the way gardenias smelled and I liked vanilla....Years ago I wore Heaven Scent  and then when I was older I liked Evening I'd be happy just to smell again.
4.  Do you smoke? 
5.  Are your parents married or divorced?
My parents are both in Heaven....Mother went home first in July 2005...they would have been married 60 years in September of 2005...Daddy went home November 2006.


  1. I don't like sour cream -- usually I like just margarine on my baked potatoes. But I've had them with cheese, bacon, etc., on them, and that was good.

    Do you know what caused the loss of your sense of smell?

  2. My MIL had no sense of smell. McAlister's makes a mean loaded potato!

  3. It's tough, at any age, when you become and orphan!!!

    Love your blog....looks like you're an expert at all this. I'm still new. Would love it if you could follow.

    Did you notice that you can click on my main page photo and it will take you directly to Oak Lawn Images, Facebook site and to the catalogue of photos.
    Please check back frequently because I often change the main blog page photo.

  4. It's hard to beat a good baked potato, isn't it:)
    I don't have a strong of a sense of smell as I used to. I think I damaged it when I painted polyurethane for too long(without wearing a mask) while we were building our house...That stuff was ruthless!

  5. I love baked potatoes also but hold the sour cream -- I can't eat it. I love potatoes just about anyway you might fix them but then I was born in Idaho where they grow the best tasting potatoes!

  6. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Another person who is not a french fry addict. :-) I see you are a reader too. I have not read 'The Girl Who...' series yet, I'm on the waiting list for the first one. It must be weird to not have a sense of smell...but maybe you are used to it by now. Great blog!

  7. You mentioned you have a Family Tree Maker. I had an older version that is no longer compatible with my Windows Vista. So, I recently bought an up to date version and am having lots of fun with it...haven't made scrapbooks yet.
    Thanks for stopping y my site.

  9. I can't even imagine not having the sense of smell! I have a friend who can't taste and that's another sense I can't imagine not having. I love the scent of vanilla and usually the candles I burn are that scent:-)

    I love bake potatoes as well but really prefer them mashed with garlic and chives. I'm not a big fan of french fries unless it's a poutine.

    Have a wonderful week my friend:-) xoxo

  10. I love butter and green onions on my baked potatoes. For whatever reason I cannot stand putting sour cream on anything but if it is already cooked in a meal I can eat it.
