a train, some small ones that are part of a collection.
a birdhouse?
a mirror?

Today's Question(s):
Where is your adult 'hiding place?" My home. I live alone, and am very happy with it. 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? Either home, or walking on a trail in a wooded park.

Bonus Question(s):
Can you see, from where you are sitting, any kind (real, photo, replica, etc.), of any of the following:
a train? No.
a birdhouse? No.
a mirror? No.
a feather? No.
a plant? Yes. Lots and lots of potted plants.
something holding pencils and pens? Yes. A coffee mug.
pillows? Nope.
candy? Yepper. I have a candy dish on my desk that contains individually-wrapped Werther's coffee-flavored hard caramels.

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? Oooooooo, yes please!
submarine?
dirigible?
unicycle?
other? A 70-foot yacht would be nice.

Today’s Word:
depthless
Pronunciation: (DEPTH-les)

1. Immeasurably deep.
2. Shallow; superficial.
Etymology: From Old English deop (deep) + laes (less).

Today is:
Lazy Day I wish.
National Banana Split Day (U.S.) I'll just have plain vanilla or chocolate ice cream, please.
National Duran Duran Appreciation Day Okay.....
Paul Bunyan Day What about Babe the Blue Ox? Aren't the two of them responsible for creating Minnesota's ten thousand lakes with their footprints?
Skyscraper Appreciation Day I live near Chicago, and it's pretty cool to visit the city and admire the skyscrapers. I wouldn't want to live there, but it's an amazing place to visit.
Smithsonian Day It's on my bucket list.
S'mores Day YUM!


Have a good day everyone! Happy hump daaaaaaaaay!

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 go for a ride on my motorbike. Hard for people to find you if you're constantly moving around. Also, it's impossible for me to talk on my smart phone if I'm busy watching out for stuff on my bike.


Bonus Question(s):
Can you see, from where you are sitting, any kind (real, photo, replica, etc.), of any of the following:
a train? I wish. I like trains and usually enjoy riding them (sometimes Amtrak gets my goat because they're not always the best for being on time.
a birdhouse? Nope
a mirror? Yes on this though it's a pretty standard mirror.
a feather? Nope but, I do have a toy white buffalo I got for making a donation to the St. Labre Indian School.
a plant? Lots of these, there's an empty field right next to the Extended Stay where I live. The Extended Stay accepts pets so, the field is really useful for guests with them for obvious reasons.
something holding pencils and pens?
pillows? I can see these on my bed.
candy? Ditto on this. I have some Wintogreen lifesavers, some candy corn, some Lindt Peppermint/White Chocolate truffles, some Brach's maple nut goodies and some candy orange slices.

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? A helicopter would be handy. I can avoid a bunch of the traffic that way.
submarine? A submarine would be neat. I could play Captain Nemo though I wouldn't sink any ships by ramming them.
dirigible? This would be cool too though dirigibles tend to be really big. The helicopter would probably be better.
unicycle? Too difficult to try to balance on.
other? I've seen a car/plane combo which would be neat.

Home sweet home.
