And so began the custom of standing during the singing of the "Hallelujah Chorus".

Wow good morning Karla. I didn't think I would see you until this afternoon.


What was the last meeting you went to ? At least 11 years ago when I worked at a Manufactured Housing Company.

Did they served snacks ? At our month meetings we met for breakfast at a restaurant. But no snacks at our smaller meetings.

Do you have any unusual driving issues ? When I park I like the spot to be on my left. It's easier for me to pull in that way.



Do you have any unique,strange or wacky neighbors that we would love hearing about ? Thankfully we don't have any people neighbors, lol. We do have cows, turkeys, deer, birds, raccoons, and squirrels.


What was the first type of phone you remember having in your home ? A rotary on the wall. We had a pay phone once when I was really young but I don't remember if it worked. Probably not. My mother used to buy some strange thiings.



Have a wonderful day. I have to get ready for an appointment.

Today's Question(s)

What was the last meeting you went to ?

Finance team meeting at work a couple of weeks ago.

Did they serve snacks ?
Ha! No, they did not.

Bonus Question:

Do you have any unusual driving issues ?
(for example: Turning down the radio if your looking for a specific address)

I like to listen to classical music while I drive. It both relaxes and focuses me.

Extra Credit Question:

Do you have any unique,strange or wacky neighbors that we would love hearing about ?

Not at this point. The house next door used to be a group home for developmentally disabled adults, which caused some interesting moments a time or two, but it was sold, and is now occupied by the sweetest and most considerate couple I think we've ever known. Our neighborhood is basically a blue-collar area, and in my experience, that's the sort of place where we find the warmest and friendliest neighbors.

Just for Fun:

What was the first type of phone you remember having in your home ?

That old black dial type, the kind that weighed about five pounds and had a heavy-duty curly black cord that would always get tangled up.

We have rain!!! Glorious Rain!!!! Send more...until Friday...then stop!
Great way to start a short work week for me!


Today's Question(s)

What was the last meeting you went to ? Some meeting the HR people set up about blood pressure. I have one on Ethics next Monday.....I sure hope I don't have to study for that one....
Did they served snacks ?
That's why we went...they served lunch!

Bonus Question:

Do you have any unusual driving issues ?
(for example: Turning down the radio if your looking for a specific address)
OMG..I do the radio thing too! I make everyone get real quiet if I'm looking for a certain turn. That's about it. Oh and I am able to realize that when all the other drivers in the world are idiots, I need to take myself home and give me a timeout.
Extra Credit Question:

Do you have any unique,strange or wacky neighbors that we would love hearing about ? I have one neighbor that really is sweet but she gets more paranoid everyday. If someone comes to her door, even if it's the police, she'll call me or DH to look out there to see who it is before she answers. She was a mess during the hurricanes.
Just for Fun:

What was the first type of phone you remember having in your home ?
The dial phones that were actually attached to the wall. No plug ins.
I was young but I do remember party lines too!

I consider the radio to be too much of a distraction to have on when I am driving.

I don't know anything about my neighbors and I hope they same the same about me.
(did this one come from AksarbeN?)

What was the first type of phone you remember having in your home ?
I recall having one on the wall with an ear piece that was mobile, but you had to speak into the mouthpiece attached to the base phone. I don't remember what it was called.
