Today's Question(s):

_________ is ,in my opinion, the best ever "People Watching Place" ?

The boardwalk (any boardwalk)

Bonus Question:
In honor of Elevator Day :

When was the last time you were on a Elevator ?


In September at eye surgeon's office.

If you are holding the door open for others getting on,do you

Hold your arm across the door ?
Use the door open button ?
Neither,if they can't hurry on oh well ?


Since I'm retired I ride elevators too infrequently now to comment on this one. I used to hold it with my hand, though.

Extra Credit Question:

Last thing that had you saying:

That was really worth the wait ?
and
That was a complete waste of time ?


Complete waste of time: Trying to take people photos at a festival on a bright sunny day.

Really worth the wait: Can't think of anything.

Just for Fun:

What is the one thing you do that would guarantee the "world would beat a path to your door?


IF scenario: Win the lottery. I hear the world pesters those winners for money.

Today's Question(s):

Paris is ,in my opinion, the best ever "People Watching Place."


Bonus Question:

In honor of Elevator Day :

When was the last time you were on a Elevator ? Last Thursday, I had to go to the 4th floor one building I was delivering some stuff on.

If you are holding the door open for others getting on,do you

Hold your arm across the door ? Sometimes this and sometimes I press the open door button. If the doors are nearly closed, I'm not sticking my arm in there.
Use the door open button ?
Neither,if they can't hurry on oh well ? I'm not that cold blooded.


Extra Credit Question:

Last thing that had you saying:

That was really worth the wait ? The touring windshield I got put on my TMAX. It has made a real positive difference. I don't get pounded by the wind like I was.
and
That was a complete waste of time ? The side wind deflecters I got put on my TMAX. I haven't noticed any great improvement there though one of the manager's swear they are worth the money.



Just for Fun:


What is the one thing you do that would guarantee the "world would beat a path to your door? I can't think of anything. There isn't anything I'm that good at that I know of.

Welcome back Karla, I hope u had a good time on your vacation. I am not sure if it is just me not having my coffee yet or the first question is a little confusing. I can totally accept it's me, so I will skip it. I was on an elevator not too long ago. If I hold the elevator for others usually push the door open button. I have been known to push the door close... The last thing that had me saying that was worth the wait was and the last thing that wasn't worth it was a disagreeable movie. I can't imagine anything I do that would bring the world to my door... maybe a few pervs... And that is all I have to say about that. Happy Columbus Day allyall
