[quote=bjh;45087404]We're supposed to get rain this weekend. So batten down the hatches, but first here are . . .


Today's Questions:
What are some good places to walk for exercise?
Any where you can put one foot in front of the other.
Some people walk at malls. Do you ever go to the mall anymore?
Not the one closet to our house.
Tell us anything that happened in a mall:
There's a lot that goes on there that doesn't make the news. It's just a matter of time before the shootings start. John never wanted me to go there alone. He worked in that area and the mall was always the source of the high crime rate.
Have you been to a mall that has fountains in it?
Yes
Do you have a favorite decorative public fountain anywhere?
Yes in Chicago.
How about any favorite typeface fonts?

Foodie Questions:
What foods and drinks do you like to see for sale at a mall food court?

Ice cream, those cinnamon rolls (very deadly at about 600 calories) and specialty candy shops. Oh yeah, I forgot about those warm, soft pretzels. Maybe it's a good thing that we don't shop much.
Extra:
Have you ever planned a funeral?
No
Have you pre-planned and pre-paid any funerals?


Just for fun:
In your opinion why DID the chicken cross the road?
Chickens are beyond stupid. I'm sure it just walked around at random saying I don't know, I don't know. I had a rooster that loved to be in my bean patch. I had a fence around it each year and I swear it took him two years to figure out how to fly over the fence. He's buried in that spot now. He was dumber then a box of rocks but he gave me chicken hugs every morning. I'll never forget him running around the yard with a piece of left over pancake in his beak. He talked about it for quite awhile before he finally ate it. It was if his brain was stuck on stupid.

Today's Questions:

Probably not the Interstate.

Some people walk at malls. Do you ever go to the mall anymore?

Not since Christmas 2014. Was trying to do last minute shopping & my youngest son (has Autism) melted down & went running & screaming for the door with his hands over his ears. This one guy turned to his wife & said "Thats how I feel"!

Tell us anything that happened in a mall:

Well; there is that ^. But there is also the time I got hired as a model for a fitness products expo when I was 19. Lucky me; I was the "stair-stepper" girl. Like for 6 hours...stepping & smiling. Couldn't walk for 2 days after that.

Have you been to a mall that has fountains in it?

Both of the 2 malls we have do.


Do you have a favorite decorative public fountain anywhere?

OMG I have tried for 2 hours now to attach an image because they are SO cool but I'm too dumb to figure out how They are both about 10 minutes from my house; The Julie Penrose Fountain in Colorado Springs & the Uncle Wilber Fountain (same place).

How about any favorite typeface fonts?

Also tried image but NOOO. It's called "Indie Flower" from Google Docs & it is soooo pretty!


Foodie Questions:
What foods and drinks do you like to see for sale at a mall food court?

We used to have a place in the Citadel Mall called the "Mediterranean Cafe". It was sooo good; made Spanakopita just the way my YiaYia used to. But, they were too good... moved to a trendy spot downtown & got replaced by some "Chicken on a Stick" place.

Extra:
Have you ever planned a funeral?

No.

Have you pre-planned and pre-paid any funerals?

No.


Just for fun:
In your opinion why DID the chicken cross the road?

Probably trying to get away from the guys at the mall with the sticks...
