If it's Wednesday it must be the Hodgepodge-Vol 27
1. What reveals more about a woman-her refrigerator or her purse?
Her Purse...at least in my case....the refrigerator says more about the tastes of the family but a purse is more personal
2. When was the last time you visited a zoo? Where? What's your favorite zoo animal?
I don't remember exactly but it was probably the first year or two we lived in Memphis....The Bears would have to be my favorite animal, of course, and the Pandas at the Memphis Zoo
3. What social issue fires you up?
Right now, I'd have to say its the way our government is spending money that they do not have.....I compare it to a person who racks up credit card debt.
4. Are you a coupon clipper? Are you extreme?
I do clip coupons for items I use on a regular basis or use the ones on products at the check out....I'm not extreme....I've watched that show a couple of times and I can't imagine why they buy all of that stuff....its another example of hording, I think...and maybe obsession.
5. What is one of your favorite souvenirs brought back from your travels?
I don't spend much money on souvenirs...I have bought baskets and bears which I still have.
6. Lemon meringue or key lime?
Key Lime....I like Marie Callender's
8. Insert your own random thought here.
You may not know this about me but I dislike communicating by phone....
We went house hunting with Daughter on Saturday. By now you know, her husband wants a divorce and wants to keep the house. Well we found a house that we thought was a good buy and in great shape except for the roof. She has never bought a house that wasn't brand new so has no experience with making offers and asking for concessions. We had advised her to make an offer on this particular house so yesterday there were a lot of phone calls and emails and faxes back and forth to Honey Bear in Memphis. Its so hard to communicate everything when we aren't doing it face to face. Very frustrating for all involved.
More flowers from our Charleston vacation.
I hope you've enjoyed your visit here.....yesterday my club had our annual Habitat for Humanity work day. There were 9 of us and we worked from 8 AM until 12:30. We were able to clean dry wall mud from electical outlets and the floors around the wall, sweep up the floor which is still the concrete slab, and prime all of the walls. It was a very pleasant day to work and we enjoyed one another's company and the feeling that we were doing something worthwhile. Because of the extensive damage from tornadoes in our area, Habitat has a shortage of volunteers. So many are volunteering in the clean up effort who would normally be working for them. The house we worked on is on a street with many other Habitat houses. Most were in different stages of the process, only a few were completed and had residents.
