Today's Question(s):
I was watching HGTV House Hunters last night and knew I had to ask our "? family"

Could you buy or move into a house that was once a Funeral Home ? I like to think I could, but wouldn't know for sure until the situation came up. I did turn down an offer to work in a funeral home once.


Extra Credit Question:
Inspired by AksarbeN's "which side are you on thread"

When was the last time the windows in your home were "washed" ? All of them - In July (House went on the market). Certain individual ones have been done since then as needed.


Did you do this or talk another family member into this "project" That would be me.

What are your favorite window washing tools ? I discovered that for the outsides, the Mr. Clean Car Wash system and a soft brush work pretty well. Rinse them off when done with the hose and filtered water cycle and let them dry. No streaks.


Bonus Question:

Are you older or younger than Walt Disney World ? I was in college when it opened. Ask me about Disneyland, that was a different story. I was only in Elementary School then. Oh wait. Same net result.


Just for Fun:

What is your favorite farm animal ? I really liked my grandpa's sheep when I was a kid.

Last time you cleaned out your car ? 2 weeks ago

Favorite homemade cookie ? Oatmeal Raisin

Do we have any "October Babies" in our QOTD family ? Not in this family, although my parents were married in October. I guess if that hadn't happened, I wouldn't be here.

Have a Thunderingly Terrific Thursday!

You know, I've been meaning to get to that.

Chocolate Chip - although my wife makes a cranberry-white chocolate chip-oatmeal cookie that is outrageously good!

National Pizza Festival Month

Oh yeah!!! Sign me up for that one!

Its been at least a year and a half since they were done in & out.....and they are over due! I have done the kitchen window over the sink.....and the others on the inside.


Did you do this or talk another family member into this "project"
The house work is my domain.
What are your favorite window washing tools ?
Favorite doesnt quite apply.....I dont like this task.

Bonus Question:


Are you older or younger than Walt Disney World ?
OMG I think I am older than Mickey Mouse.....when Disney World was opened I was too old to want to go.

Just for Fun:

What is your favorite farm animal ?
I have a real fondness for pigs.
Last time you cleaned out your car ?
Last month I did a thorough cleaning.
Favorite homemade cookie ?
Peanut Butter Cookies.
Do we have any "October Babies" in our QOTD family ?
I am sure the answer is Yes......but I'm not one.

Thank You Karla and congratulations on your latest STAR!
