Mornin' all!

I hope you're well-rested, and ready to hit the morning Questions.

Onward...

Today's Question(s):
Where is your adult 'hiding place?" It can be a real, or imaginary place (childhood playground, the piano, the island of Nilondin [I made that up just now] , etc.). Where do you go when you want to get away from the rat race?
I've never really had a hiding place, real or imaginary. If I need time alone I just tell everyone that but if that didn't work I would probably disappear to the park at the nearby lake.


Bonus Question(s):
Can you see, from where you are sitting, any kind (real, photo, replica, etc.), of any of the following:
a train?
a birdhouse?
a mirror?
a feather?
a plant?
something holding pencils and pens?
pillows?
candy?

Just for Fun:
If money were no object, and you actually had a place to store it, what "exotic" means of transportation would you like to have:
horse and buggie or a jet airplane
helicopter?
submarine?
dirigible?
unicycle?
other?

Today in History:
Birthday: 1955 Joe Jackson, U.S. singer, pianist
Entertainment: 1985 Michael Jackson buys ATV Music (every Beatles song) for $47 million
Science/Technology: 1990 U.S.'s Magellan spacecraft lands on Venus
Sports: 2014 Rory McIlroy wins the PGA Championship, marking his fourth major championship; McIlroy is now one of only four players in golf history to reach this achievement by age 25

Today’s Word:
depthless
Pronunciation: (DEPTH-les)
Meaning: adjective:
1. Immeasurably deep.
2. Shallow; superficial.
Etymology: From Old English deop (deep) + laes (less).
Earliest documented use: 1619.

Today is:
Lazy Day
National Banana Split Day (U.S.)
National Duran Duran Appreciation Day
Paul Bunyan Day
Skyscraper Appreciation Day
Smithsonian Day
S'mores Day

Quote of the Day:
"The world is like that -- incomprehensible and full of surprises." ~ Jorge Amado ~ (Brazilian writer, also born today, 1912, d. Aug 8, 2001)

Have a good day everyone!

Thanks Patscats!

Today's Question(s):
Where is your adult 'hiding place?" It can be a real, or imaginary place (childhood playground, the piano, the island of Nilondin [I made that up just now] , etc.). Where do you go when you want to get away from the rat race? My favorite place to escape is Mike and Lisa world right at home on top of the mountain


Bonus Question(s):
Can you see, from where you are sitting, any kind (real, photo, replica, etc.), of any of the following:

It's still a little dark out but I'm facing the open sliding door and I can barely see the mountain range…and the clouds above it. I can also see the floral centerpiece and a fan. To the right is my kitchen so I can see…ahhh my coffee maker, a pineapple and a bowl of oranges


Just for Fun:
If money were no object, and you actually had a place to store it, what "exotic" means of transportation would you like to have:
helicopter? this or a private plane would be fun…..or an exotic car
submarine?

dirigible?
unicycle?
other?



Happy Hump Day!!!

Where is your adult 'hiding place?" It can be a real, or imaginary place (childhood playground, the piano, the island of Nilondin [I made that up just now] , etc.). Where do you go when you want to get away from the rat race? At home, live alone in a small house in the middle of a field. Quiet, peaceful. Or sometimes it's in my car, listening to music and driving through the hills.
