Not really but the neighbor wants us to ride bikes up to the local Harley shop so she can see about upgrading her bike. She wants our input. Enjoy the warmer weather. And last but not least - Remember and pray for and thank those who serve or have served our country!

lol What are the chances any of your list will get done ?
All should happen but the last one definitely will!
Bonus Question:

Do you wear bifocals ?
No - I had lasik surgery a few years ago (had my distance vision corrected)

Today's Question(s):

yes, lots of paperwork

lol What are the chances any of your list will get done ?
Am happy to say it's getting done!

Extra Credit Question:

A couple of steaks wouldn't go amiss. In fact they'd be much appreciated. Let's see the food groups we learned in school were: 1. Dairy 2. Fruit and Veg 3. Meats and proteins 4. Breads and starches. 5. Steak!

Just for Fun:

Did you ever "cut" or "skip" a class when you were in school ?
Like a dummy, yes I did a couple of times. Naturally got caught and was in trouble.
If you see a penny on the ground will you pick it up ?
Nope.
Other than change, have you ever found money on the ground?
The most I ever found was $23 laying on the ground. I saw what looked like a couple of $1 bills folded over on the ground, picked them up and put them in a pocket. Later it occurred to me..maybe they're not just ones. When I looked at them, Lo and behold, there was a $20 that 3 ones had been hiding.
How many different kinds of Pickles are in your fridge ?
Dill, dill and dill. The hot dog relish is gone. *sniff* I'll only eat sweet pickles in relish. We are a dill family. This and something I saw on tv earlier today makes me want to go to the store and get some hot dogs.
Have you ever worn a "Tiara" ?
Not bloody likely


Today in History:
1827 - The first nursery school in the United States was established in New York City. and people have been educating plants ever since
1879 - Iowa State College, located in Ames, IA, established the first veterinary school in the U.S. cool!

National Pickle Day
Sea Turtle Day will skip the turtle soup today in their honor. j/k I wish them well
Lucky Penny Day have gotten one of the new pennies already in circulation. on the back instead of the Lincoln memorial is a cabin. I suppose signifying Lincoln's birthplace. Also got an Indian head/Buffalo nickel from the 1930s a couple of weeks ago!

Have a safe and relaxing weekend, all!
