Today's Question(s): *
What was the first car you ever owned? The first car I owned was a subaru. Until I was married I drove one of my parent's cars. It was a blue convertible... can't remember what kind of car it was. Both cars were great. Bizarre activities? The convertible witnessed a few.



Just for Fun:
Do you normally wear a watch? Not any more. As much as I hate cells, I use mine to tell time.
I have a cell because my daughter decided I needed one. I travel a lot on my own. Once the car broke down after one in the morning on a trip back from Maine. I was lucky there was a gas station/convenience store open.
I really hate cell phones. Friends call while they're driving & lose connection, calling back several times. I'm not a "phone person" anyway. People have run into me in grocery stores because they're on their cells and not paying attention. I could say more...

The "tiny" Question: What is Life? Life is what you make of it.


Looks like a beautiful day! Happy Thursday!

What was the first car you ever owned?

1975 Oldsmobile Cutlass Salon

Did it turn out to be a winner or a lemon??

It was already 11 years old when I purchased it, and once a month it would nickel and dime me with some sort of small repair needed. But I loved that car.

Did this car witness any bizarre activities??

If that car could talk...


Do you normally wear a watch? Yes.

If so pocket or wrist? Wrist.

Plain or fancy? I like nice watches, I'm not big on jewelry, but I like me some Omega, Rolex, Breitling, Oris, IWC etc.

Mechanical or electric? Auto and mechanical, not a fan of Quartz watches unless it's for work, which would be a Casio G-Shock.

Aren't cell phones just a big irritation to all?? Even those using them ?? The monthly bill too!!

What's an irritation is a new smartphone comes out every six months to replace the previous edition that was supposed to be the cutting edge in technology. Meanwhile they all gave some sort of glitch. Get it right the first time!

The "tiny" Question: What is Life?

Why it's a board game originally created by Milton Bradly in 1860. Everyone knows that.
