Today’s Question(s):

Tonight is Oscars Night! Do you plan to watch the Academy Awards this evening?
Have you seen any of the films that were nominated for awards this year?
Do you have any particular favorite movies that you hope will win? - I never gave a hoot about The Oscars or most of the movies that were in it. The only Oscar I've ever liked was the one called.. Oscar Meyer (maker of hot dogs) In fact he deserves every award there is!

Extra Credit Question:

Do you sleep on the left-hand or the right-hand side of the bed? - Hmmm.. I don't know.. I can't tell when I'm sleeping... I know I ended up on the floor (carpeted floor) a few times, on my left side of the bed.. I also know that I have the whole bed (Queen-Sized bed) to myself, maybe that'll change sometime in the near future... and no I'm not talking sharing the bed with a dog or a cat.. I'm talking about sharing it with a wife.

Bonus Question:

How many National Parks and National Monuments have you visited so far in your life? - Too many to count... I think 3 of them..

Which National Park or Monument is your favorite? - The Grand Canyon, and the USS Arizona Memorial at Pearl Harbor, Hawaii.

Just For Fun:

When was the last time you took a nap? - ZZZZZZZZzzzzzzz... ZZZZZZZzzzzzzzz...

Good morning to all!

Today’s Question(s):

No. I have no interest.

Have you seen any of the films that were nominated for awards this year?
Not me.

I don't know anything about them. My DW & DD talk about Oscar movies, but all I hear is blah, blah, blah...

Extra Credit Question:

Do you sleep on the left-hand or the right-hand side of the bed?
Looking from the foot of the bed, I'm on the right side.

Bonus Question:

How many National Parks and National Monuments have you visited so far in your life?
Wow, too many to count.

Which National Park or Monument is your favorite?
I think I enjoyed the Gateway Arch and the Statue of Liberty (in the old days) the most. It's not a monument, but I really enjoyed the White House tour we did back in early 1990's. Mrs Bush even waved to us!

Just For Fun:

When was the last time you took a nap?
Last evening! DS and I were out geocaching all day (26 finds) and I was tired out when we got home. So a little nap was in order.

Today Is:
Thermos Bottle Day
Tell a Fairy Tale Day
National Pistachio Day I raided DW's supply of pistachios last night!
For Pete’s Sake Day Is a tame version of what she said when she saw the pistachios were gone!
National Personal Chef’s Day We wish!!!
Academy Awards Day

Have a great Sunday to all! (It's now less than 2 hours till Daytona!!! I have to finish my chores and then I'm all in for the race!)
