Today's Question(s):
Since today is Roller Coaster day

What is your opinion on Roller Coasters? Love the children's roller coasters, anything bigger scares me.

Bonus Question:

What is your favorite Airport to fly into or out of? Never flown.
so of course we have to ask
What Airport to you try to avoid flying in or out of? The one chance airport is the Wilkes County Airport. Three sides has mountains, so the speed had to be right going in and you have to clear the trees going out. Could that be why Lowe's moved to Mooresville? The executives wanted to stay alive!


Extra Credit Question:

How many time have you wanted to say to someone
(lol you may not be able to say it to them but you can vent here )

I know you mean well, but I really wish you would stop ___MYOB______.


Just for Fun:

What was the last thing that had you "Hollerin'" Haven't been to Spivey's Corner lately.
Do you have one dominate color of clothes in your wardrobe? I have a lot of pastels lately.
Did you ever got to "summer Camp" when you were younger? I lived in summer camp. No need to go it was an everyday thing. Fishing, climbing trees, shooting leaves off with a beebee gun.
Was it day camp or sleep over camp? It was called home.
What is the silliest thing you have every taken to the beach? A baby in a stroller on the beach. They don't roll very well in the sand.

Good Morning Everyone! Interesting questions as always, Karla!!

Since today is Roller Coaster Day, what is your opinion on roller coasters?
Used to like them - Not so sure you could get me on one now!

Who here likes to ride in the front car?
I don't ever remember riding in the front car.
Have you ever kept your eyes shut during the ride?
Nah, I think they were open.

What is your favorite airport to fly into or out of?
Well, I have only been on an airplane once (round trip), and that was from Sacramento to Las Vegas. Sacramento seemed easier to find your way in and out of.
What airport do you try to avoid flying in or out of?
All of them! Actually the Las Vegas airport was a pain to find your way out of. I kept taking the wrong loop and ended up going around the same circle about 8 times!

How many times have you wanted to say to someone - I know you mean well, but I wish you would stop closing the gate when you leave in the morning! This would be my dh, I know he is doing it trying to protect us because he leaves for work at 3:00am, but it is a pain to get out, unlock it and lock it behind me. It is kind of creepy in the winter because it is still dark outside when I leave for work! But, since I am so nice, and I know he means well, I keep my mouth shut!!

What was the last thing that had you "Hollerin"?
Do you have one dominate color of clothes in your wardrobe? Usually dark or bright colors. I seem to have quite a few brown items.
Did you ever go to summer camp when you were younger? No, I always wanted to though.
What is the silliest thing you have ever taken to the beach? The hemmorhoid (sp?) highway Wait, let me explain - - - - A large group of us go to the sand dunes and ride quads. Well, there is a trail that goes to the beach that is short hills the whole way. Well, you have to keep up with the guys, but if you don't stand the whole way, your butt takes a beatin - hence the name!!

Have a great day!!!!

Are you talking about me? Oh, no, it's probably toosie!

What was the last thing that had you "Hollerin'" ...I saw the baggage guy intentionally drop my carry-on luggage...he smashed a personal keepsake that had been my partner's for more than 30 years and had great sentimental value.

I'm really sorry to hear that, at the least I would've reported him. At the worse, smacked the you-know-what out of him.

Today's Question(s):
Since today is Roller Coaster day What is your opinion on Roller Coasters ?

I rode them when I was a kid and can't say I ever really enjoyed being dropped and jostled around. This is fun? I'm happy if other people enjoy them though. I preferred the bumper cars and cars on tracks.

Bonus Question:
What is your favorite Airport to fly into or out of ?

Dont know that it's a favorite, but have flown out of DFW the most.
so of course we have to ask What Airport to you try to avoid flying in or out of ?
Heathrow. It must have been designed by people who wanted users to have to walk a few miles to get anywhere. However, I can recommend Gatwick if you're going that way.

Extra Credit Question:
How many time have you wanted to say to someone I know you mean well, but I really wish you would start believing me when i say "no thank you.".
Some people just don't want to accept a no thanks and it can be in a variety of situations. If I decline something, I'm not being bashfully polite.

If an offer is turned down twice, accept it. Don't keep offering whatever it is. That is a false hospitality that just becomes uncomfortable to everyone.

Just for Fun:
Do you have one dominate color of clothes in your wardrobe ? blues
What is the silliest thing you have every taken to the beach ? crackers for the sea gulls

Today is:
No Orange Clothes Day if I'd known that I would have worn orange
