Wednesday Hodge Podge

The Wednesday HodgePodge is Nuts-volume #46

1. It is officially fall here in North America...I realize not everyone who participates in the Hodgepodge lives in North America but if you do, what's your favorite memory of Summer 2011? If you'renot in North America, what's your favorite memory of the season just ending on your side of the world?
Fresh tomatoes from the Garden

2. Your favorite nut? You know I mean the edible kind, right?
I'm nuts about nuts of all kinds....Sometimes I feel like a nut, sometimes I don't.....I love Cashews but can never eat just favorite are the sweet and crunchy ones....I also love Pistachios.....and don't forget Boiled Peanuts, a favorite Fall delicacy here in the south.

3. What activity puts your sense of balance to the test?
Most all of them as I have Meniere's Disease of the inner ear.....even walking beside a ditch can through off my balance...

4. How would you describe your sense of humor?
I think I have one....ha ha!......I don't like practical jokes, though.

5. September 28th is National Ask a Stupid Question Day...what's your stupid question?
I should be able to ask one since I watch Golden Girls last night....."Who wrote the Book of Love"?

6. Roller skates~hula hoop~jump rope...which activity would you most enjoy? Yes, you have to choose.
I never roller skated (see #3 above).....can't jump rope any more without wetting myself (I know TMI ) that leaves the Hula Hoop....I wonder if I can still do that.

7. What's your most sentimental possession?
I'm not sure I can narrow that down....I have a flannel shirt that belonged to my Dad..I cut Okra while wearing it.........I have a robe that belonged to my Mother which I pack in my luggage........I think the old photos are the most valued because they show the past and I would hate to lose them.

8. Insert your own random thought here.
I slept way too late this morning....don't know what was wrong with Smokey....he didn't come in the bedroom to wake me until almost I have to get dressed now and go to the grocery store.

This weekly Hop is brought to you by Joyce. Join us.

I had photos for Outdoor Wednesday but haven't loaded them yet
so they'll have to wait until next week.


  1. Ooooh I love boiled peanuts...I always buy some from the guy on the side of the road when I'm at my daughters in SC. So good!

  2. I have balance problems, too, due to TM, and I know what you mean about walking beside a ditch or something like that.

    I can't eat nuts much any more due to dental work. But I love cashews.

  3. We love boiled peanuts too! But we have them year 'round- thank goodness. LOL Pretty sure that a lot of us have the wetting issue when jumping rope. And laughing really hard. LOL oops. :)

  4. Sounds like you have some very special items that mean the world to you.

  5. I have a hard time jumping on the trampoline for any length of time. Those darn kids ;)

  6. Oh geesh! An inner ear problem would be the death of me. Just thinking about that makes me dizzy. I don't blame you for not wanting to go spinning around. Stay on terra firma girl!

  7. 8:00 A.M.?!! For me that's nearly a day gone already. [kidding]

    Had to giggle about jumping rope at our age. Not funny, but still giggled anyway. And, I know I can still do the hula hoop. I have one and use it. Oh, and pistachios. They're so darned expensive these days. Guess now that they're considered 'health foods' that is the reason they jacked up the price by 200%!! Me, it's pecans!! And black walnuts. And peanuts...and pistachios. Oh heck, it'd be easier to name the ones I DON'T like. One I can think of is hazel nuts.

    And not to leave this one out....the favorite thing about the Summer of 2011?!!! For me, it's finally OVER!!! LOL

  8. Ps...the Wednesday hodgepodge button doesn't link to anywhere. I guess I'll go out on the 'net to find it.

  9. I can empathize with you on your fathers shirt, and your mom's robe. My mom passed away in 2005 and we just cleaned out her closet last week - and all her clothes came home with me. I trying to work my way through them so I can decide what I have to keep and what I can bear to give away. My house is going to collapse under the weight if I don't stop collecting things though :-)

  10. I forgot about boiled peanuts! Good answer, especially for us southerners!

  11. Some of these were especially funny!
