I had an idea for my new novel but I forgot to write it down. Maybe something will jog my memory...lol.


Bonus Question:

Which major event in History do you wish you had been able to witness in person ?

There are so many, it's so hard to choose!!?? I guess I would say the signing of the Declaration of Independence. It not only dramatically changed things for us here in the U.S., it changed the world by inspiring democratic revolutions throughout Europe and beyond.


Extra Credit Question:

"Whatcha" doing this weekend ?
Not sure just yet.

I didn't watch it, but since the highlights have been on just about every channel I did see a few minutes of that coverage.


I hope everyone has a nice weekend!

Working.

Good morning everyone Good AfternoonHappy Friday Oh, ya

In order to do that, first I have to do

Today's Question(s):

What was the last thing that had you saying "I wish I had written that down" ? Probably the very last thing that someone said to me.....
Bonus Question:

Which major event in History do you wish you had been able to witness in person ? There are so many....I think for me, hearing the story of my Great Aunts and Great Uncles, running as fast as they could down the farm lane, to meet my Grandpa after surviving The Great War between 1914-1918. He was injured several times (badly at Passchaendale), and he was very surprised he came home alive to his family...... Without that happening I wouldn't be here...
Extra Credit Question:

"Whatcha" doing this weekend ? Some work, r&ring, finishing off a course, sitting by the fire, and maybe watching the snow that is supposed to hit tomorrow....

What was the last thing that had you saying "I wish I had written that down" ? Stuff the vet and I discussed.

Bonus Question:

Which major event in History do you wish you had been able to witness in person ? The crash involving Princess Diana. I would have fought to get her immediate medical care instead of letting her die needlessly in the back of that car.


Extra Credit Question:

"Whatcha" doing this weekend ? Working and taking care of my dog post op.


Just for Fun:

For those that watched the R. Wedding

What were some of the things stood out to you ? How the two are actually 'in love' and have respect for each other whereas Diana was like watching the innocent lamb going to slaughter.
