I did none of those and I haven't read all of yesterday's answers yet but I thought some should point out that accumulation of lint/fuzz in the dryer vent can pose a fire hazard.

It's Put a Spring in Your Step Day. I would... but since this is November I'm afraid I might Fall.

Today's Question(s):

Ok so after reading yesterdays question about your outside dryer vent

How many of you:
Cleaned yours out ?
Made a note to clean yours out ?
Told someone in the house "Hey go clean out the outside vent" ?
Told someone "Hey did you know we have an outside vent " ?
Went looking for said "vent" ?
Are still thinking I was talking about the "lint trap" inside the dryer ?

All I did was think "That's hubby's job, so I don't need to spend even a second thinking about it..."


Extra Credit Question:


What was your last "gest" ?

LOL well I guess it wasn't to clean the outside vent.


Inquiring Minds Question:

How do you "do" the QOTD:


1. Hit the "quote" button.
2. Read whatever "day" it is first, to write my opening remark.
3. Remove the bf and font info, as needed. Guests hosts: please don't use a special font! For some reason it can make things really messed up on my computer.
3. Then fill in the answers.

I like to read the other answers as a set, so I usually read them at the end of the day, or sometimes the next day. I like to write my answers without reading what anyone else has written, but sometimes I'll discuss the questions with normie if she shows up for our walk before I've had a chance to fill in my QOTD yet.


Extra Credit Question:
In honor of "fast food day"

Which is your all time favorite "Fast Food Place" ?

Starbucks, I guess. That's about the only fast food place I go to, and I rarely go there.


Bonus Question:

For those that text

I don't text.

Just for Fun:

Do you remember having a "dial" telephone in your home ?

Yes, and I remember when the phone company owned the phones and rented them out to you. The idea of owning your own phone was absurd!

Have you seen any of the "Godfather movies " ?

Yes.

Did you watch Luke & Laura get married ?

No.
