Bonus Question:

So who here has spent time on a farm ? Lived on a gentleman's farm til I was 9.

Did this farm have animals or crops ? 13 horses, 1 cow, 1 donkey, 24 chickens, 3 dogs, and 1 cat.

When was the last time you could be heard saying

"Nope ,sorry, that's just not gonna happen !!!! Two weeks ago when a court case I was a part of had been put off for another week due to the plaintiff making a call to the court house with an excuse which resulted in me driving home from vacation, my attorney said, "It's been rescheduled for next Wednesday." I snapped, "Nope, sorry!, that's just NOT going to happen!"

Today in History:
1899 - Carnation processes its 1st can of evaporated milk *I've never understood how there can be anything in the can if it's evaporated. Do you get it?

Today is:
Fight Procrastination Day *Could we look at this tomorrow perhaps?
.

****Just a short clarification.... I did NOT mean I grew up on a 'gentleman's farm' as in some man's farm!!!! lmao.... I meant I grew up on a small farm which some may refer to with the label... I didn't mean to label myself!!! >horrorface!< lolololololol****

Sometimes known as a hobby farm? I think we knew what you meant.

Today's Question(s):
Have you ever given a Surprise Party ?
I wouldn't want to risk inflecting discomfort on another soul.

Has anyone given you a Surprise Party ?
Not a surprise one, but I've never been comfortable being the center of attention at a party. That's just me.

If you found out someone was giving you a Surprise Party would you pretend to be "surprised" !! ?
No, and I wouldn't hide that I knew about it beforehand either.

Bonus Question:
So who here has spent time on a farm ?

Visited a farm where an aunt and uncle lived when I was younger. They just kept a few animals. Mostly poultry. Too woodsy to plant crops.

As mentioned yesterday I worked on a ranch intermittently as a teenager. I think my parents thought it was "character building."

Did this farm have animals or crops ?
Animals: cattle. Crops: depends on if you consider hay a crop.

Extra Credit Question:
In honor of "Wonderful Weirdo's Day" Is there a special " Wonderful Weirdo " in your life ?

If someone is a bona fide WEIRDO I probably won't know them for long. As elston suggested: eccentric. Now that's different. Lots of good folks have eccentricities...

Some famous eccentrics: Galileo (the earth isn't the center of teh universe!?), Columbus (the earth isn't flat?!), Edison (you can't make all those ideas work!), Pasteur (there are unseeable animals that make people sick?!)....anyone whose ideas were new at one time. Later known as geniuses in some cases.

Happy weekend, all!

When an idiot manager at our (used to be) favorite restaurant tried to push some burnt food off on Mrs. Tek when she had sent it back. This was just one among a number of things that have gone on since new management took over. They have ruined a long-time icon in our city. Time to find a better place to go.
