Good morning everyone
Happy Wednesday
and again I find myself in a rush, have to be somewhere at 10 and here it is 9:15
Now that in our fantasy CD world, our houses are clean and our lawns are mowed from yesterdays ?
I thought it would be fun to see how you would answer

Todays Question:

If you remember the TV show "Bewitched" and you could blink your eyes and pop into a place, where would you "pop"


Today in history:
June 11, 1905 Penns Railroad debuts fastest train in world (NY-Chicago in 18 hrs) - ok you know I had to check to see how long it now takes
rofl 103 years later it takes 18hr 45mn heres the actual schedule
departs - 49 Lake Shore Limited New York, NY- Penn Station4:00 pm
11-JUN-08
arrives - Chicago, IL Union Station 9:45 am 12-JUN-08 18h 45m
BTW it takes 20 hrs 40 mn for the return trip

June 11, 1982 Movie "ET the Extra-Terrestrial" released

and from the strange songs in history list :

June 11, 1977 "Ain't Gonna Bump No More (With No Fat Woman)" by Joe Tex hits #12
June 11, 1977 "Dance and Shake Your Tambourine" by Universal Robot Band peaks at #93

Word of the day:
imbroglio \im-BROHL-yoh\, noun:
1. A complicated and embarrassing state of things.
2. A confused or complicated disagreement or misunderstanding.
3. A confused mass; a tangle.

Yes, and No.

Lawn was mowed yesterday. It's a good thing I did it's raining again and I hate to mow wet grass.

We deep-cleaned the living room and dining room over the weekend. I'm going to do the family room today since I can't work outside because it's RAINING again/still. It's a good thing I worked my tail off earlier this year or the back corner would still be a mess. If I could get two dry days I could whip it out. Just two!

So Yes it's mowed, but No the house isn't quite clean yet.

As for being teleported to a place of my choosing; well there are some fun ideas that would get me in trouble, so I'm going to be more conservative than that.

Me, a forklift and a pallet into the center of Fort Knox. Take a full one, leave an empty one. Woo Hoo!

If I can't take anything with me then the South of France during late spring. Of course my wife requires the same ability or it wouldn't be any fun.

My life is, at times, an imbroglio.

I would have an endless amount of "popping" and would probably spend all eternity going places and never get tired of it. Even if I did get tired of it, I would take Uncle Arthur with me a few times. I really liked him.

Endora was a witch! I hated her.

German chocolate cake is my favorite!

Being in Chicago I guess I would blink myself to NY 18 hrs later. With the 45 min I saved I would have lunch. Then if you let me I'd blink myself back.

I used to watch it occaisionally but we liked 'I Dream Of Jeannie' a lot more and watched more of that one.
If I could 'blink' Im not sure where it would be to. Probably Canada somewhere, its so pretty and Id go back with no fuss!

Yum! German Chocolate Cake!!!
I am too young to have been around when Bewitched first aired, but I sure did watch the reruns! It was one of my mother's favorite shows!

If I could "pop" myself anywhere it would probably be Austria, I've seen pictures from when my parents lived in Europe and Austria looks absolutely amazing! I would of course have my husband "pop" himself there too!

My life right now has very much potential to be an imbroglio with a full-time job, a 21-month-old, another on the way and my being in college! Phew!!! I enjoy every moment of it!

Funny, my partner and I were just talking about Bewitched last night, and saying "boy, I just wish we could wiggle our nose, and poof! our move would be complete."

But no, we have two weeks to pack. Ugh. It almost kills the excitement of a new home. Almost. But not quite.

Well... I don't know about me, but I think a lot of people here would probably blink their eyes and "pop" me into my room..

Actually, I never watched Bewitched, but I'd pop myself into the flight deck of a Boeing 777-200, sitting in the captain's seat, cruising at 38,000 feet, going about 520 knots, at latitude 21 degrees, 30 minutes, longtitude 157 degrees, 57 minutes, (Over the island of Oahu) on it's way to the south pacific.

I'd pop back in time to the set of Bewitched and blink Dick Sargeant back into Dick York. He was a much better Darren!

Here are hugs for EVERYONE who answers the Karla Question of the Day!!
