Good morning everyone
Happy Wednesday
Yay We finally closed !!! A few last minute nail bitters that had us all holding our breath. But finally after tons of phone calls( some not so nice) & faxes we started signing papers at 4 pm
Woo hoo I am so glad that 5 month "adventure" is done.

Today is my last day at school we finish a couple weeks before the kids.
Today we will be taking them out to the garden they planed and "harvest" the lettuce and other things and they will be able to enjoy the results of all of their efforts. I have a feeling the kids(inner city urban) have never experienced the joy of growing food they can eat.

I loved getting to know all of the kids this year and am going to miss them.

But before I can go see them I have to ask:

Today's Question(s):

It's National Towel Day !!!
So lets talk about towels

For bath towels do you prefer:
Thick ?
Thin ?
Regular size ?
The huge Bath sheet size ?

What color are are the towels in your main bathroom (not guest bathroom) ?

Does anyone use a color coded towel system where each family member has a certain towel color ?

How do you fold your bath towels:
In half then in half again ?
In Half then in thirds ?
Fold them I just pile them in the closet or take them out of the clean laundry basket ?


Extra Credit Question:

lol I think I was just adopted by
1.
2.


Bonus Question:


In Honor of Tap Dance Day

Pole position

Got into Chicago a couple hours ago. The hotel I booked turned out to be a real dud. The first room they gave me had not been cleaned after the last person checked out. The second room they gave me was torn apart so they could repair the ceiling. The third room where I am currently at has issues. The phone does not work. It is not the type of room I booked. The clock radio does not work. While I knew I was not getting the Ritz, I really did expect better from Ramada Inn. In a little while the hotel manager and I will be having an interesting conversation.

I want the biggest, thickest, baddest bath towels available.

What color are are the towels in your main bathroom (not guest bathroom) ?
Blue, pink, yellow...it all depends what towel I grab out of the closet.

Does anyone use a color coded towel system where each family member has a certain towel color ?
Not a problem for me. Fred only gets paper towels and the moose has non exsistent bathing skills.

How do you fold your bath towels:
In half then in half again ?
In Half then in thirds ?
Fold them I just pile them in the closet or take them out of the clean laundry basket ?
I just sorta fold them. Not really sure if there is any pattern to my folding skills.

Extra Credit Question:

lol I think I was just adopted by
1. Someone with no money
2. My parents. My dad was 5'9. My mom is 5'2. I am 6'0


Bonus Question:

In Honor of Tap Dance Day

What was the last situation,topic or discussion where you experienced someone "Tap Dancing" around the answer or issue ?
Where I use to work. My boss not only tap danced around issues, he also would do the soft shoe if he thought we had caught on to his tap dancing.

Just for Fun:

How many of our QOTD family have ever danced the "Twist" ?
If there is anything I do worse than singing, it would be my dancing. If I try to do both, people leave in a hurry.

Have you ever been in a "Twist Contest" ?
Like that is ever going to happen

No, but that's a good idea.
How do you fold your bath towels:
In Half then in thirds - I think this one.

This is a regular feature with one person I know, but don't see often. You have to try to read between the tap dancing, or between the lines.

Just for Fun:
How many of our QOTD family have ever danced the "Twist" ?
Have you ever been in a "Twist Contest" ?
Before my time.

Today is:
National Something Day We'll think of something.

Today is the last day to enter the May photo contests. Has to be your own picture, taken within 30 days.

See rules on the threads for May "Theme" contest and May "Home State" (or country)

Happy last day of school, Karla!

Today's Question(s):


It's National Towel Day !!!
So lets talk about towels

For bath towels do you prefer:
Thick ?
Thin ?
Regular size ?
The huge Bath sheet size ?
I like to drip dry (rather than dry myself straight after coming out of the shower), so I have towels that are large enough to give me decent 'cover' and thin enough that they stay 'tucked' in.

What color are are the towels in your main bathroom (not guest bathroom) ?
Mostly white

Does anyone use a color coded towel system where each family member has a certain towel color ?
I have all the white or whitish ones, and the coloured towels go in the guest bathroom, so when I have more than one guest they know which towel is theirs.

How do you fold your bath towels:
In half then in half again ?
In Half then in thirds ?
Fold them I just pile them in the closet or take them out of the clean laundry basket ?
I fold them in half, then fold each side into the middle, and then in half - that way none of the edges show. My towels are on display in both bathrooms, so I like them to look tidy.


Extra Credit Question:

lol I think I was just adopted by
1.
2.
I don't think anyone has adopted me lately!


Bonus Question:


In Honor of Tap Dance Day

What was the last situation,topic or discussion where you experienced someone "Tap Dancing" around the answer or issue ?
Well, certainly not on C-D

Just for Fun:

How many of our QOTD family have ever danced the "Twist" ?
Me!
Have you ever been in a "Twist Contest" ?
Not that I recall, but I did a LOT of twisting as a teenager - our village held dances for the local teens almost every Saturday night!

Happy hump day!

spot I had to go answer yesterdays questions first


Today's Question(s):

It's National Towel Day !!!
So lets talk about towels

For bath towels do you prefer:
Thick ? This one
Thin ?
Regular size ? Have these
The huge Bath sheet size ? I would probably like these

What color are are the towels in your main bathroom (not guest bathroom)
I have both white and navy blue.

Does anyone use a color coded towel system where each family member has a certain towel color ?
no but I know someone who does this

How do you fold your bath towels:
In half then in half again ?
In Half then in thirds ? This one. It is how my Mom did it
Fold them I just pile them in the closet or take them out of the clean laundry basket ?


Extra Credit Question:

lol I think I was just adopted by
1. The new buyers of my bosses house. They are young and stationed here with their families up north. I helped them out during the process and they told me yesterday after closing that I was "stuck" with them. They are great people so I don't mind being their "adopted Mom"
2. Our team at the company my boss bought last year. They love how hands on and involved we are with support and help. They said they never got that with the old bosses. So they told me I am now "family"



Bonus Question:

In Honor of Tap Dance Day

What was the last situation,topic or discussion where you experienced someone "Tap Dancing" around the answer or issue ?

OMG I shall make a list
The buyers Realtor - What part of "I received the doc the buyer sent YOU call me I have a question" should give you a clue that you should of received the same doc and when you didn't see it in your inbox this might be a problem since the lender won't sign off to close without it
This tap dancing almost cost us the closing

The Property Manager and board Pres of our HOA assoc. Yup you 2 messed up and no amount of "tap dancing" is going to prevent this from becoming "lawyer involved"
lol not me but for something they did that could of resulted in messing up the sale of my bosses house
lol now you know why I am so excited that the house drama is over




Just for Fun:

How many of our QOTD family have ever danced the "Twist" ? Yuppers lol now I have the song "twist & shout" playing in my mind
Have you ever been in a "Twist Contest" ? I ran many of these years ago while DJing
