[b]Today's Question(s) :

When you leave your home and go to lock your front door

Which way do you turn the key

I turn it to the left

In honor of the NFL's birthday

Have you ever been to a NFL football game ? Yup, I went to see the Cleveland Browns play the Buffalo Bills at the old Municipal Stadium in Cleveland, and sat in the Dawg Pound too. But I went with a bunch of guys from Buffalo so we almost got killed! My inlaws also have season tickets to the Redskins so I've been to many games over the past few years.

Extra Credit Question:

When was the last time you went fishing ? Real fishing? Never, and never will. I used to make a pole out of a stick and twine when I was a kid and fished in the little creek behind my parents house though. That was back in the late 70's I guess.I don't recall ever catching anything though!!

I'll be right down

Front door lock don't even have a key to the front door, we actually use the back door and you lock it on the inside then just shut the door, only need the key to open it

NFL is that football? guess that means no

fishing when I was a kid in the creek
funny story, in Florida on a big long pier that you had to pay to walk out on, lots of peop.e fishing
this man had a bucket of fish, I said wow, you caught all of that, he looked at me and said no, thats bait
I looked really dumb and just walked away

Blah! Blah! Blah! Day when someone ask me to read something (because they can't read the writting) at work, I normally have to start at the top and read down and will say blah blah blah most of the time till I get to part that they can't read
not sure why I do that

No need to go to Florida today. It'g going to be 70 and sunny in the fox River Valley today

Today's Question(s) :

When you leave your home and go to lock your front door

I almost never leave thru the front door. I push the button on the car mirror and close the garage door.

To the right
or
To the left

Bonus Question:

In honor of the NFL's birthday

Have you ever been to a NFL football game ?
I went to a Philadelphia Eagles game when I was 12 or 13. My adult sporting adventures have been at auto race tracks.

Extra Credit Question:

When was the last time you went fishing ?
It's been about 10 years. I have a friend who had a charter fishing boat on Lake Michigan. If he had last min cancelations he would call and my son and I would join him. I did more boat driving than fishing.

Where did this "event" take place ?

Today's Question(s) :

To the left Terrible to say but I never do. Most of the time the latch is on and we used the garage to go in and out with the remote. I use the front door if I am not taking the car but around here I never lock my door.
Of course Dh sits on the couch with a shot gun bearing its ugly teeth.

Have you ever been to a NFL football game?

I once won tickets to a Jet-Giant game at the Meadowlands from a radio contest. I never would have been able to afford tickets on my own.

When was the last time you went fishing?

Many years ago with my father. I enjoyed the relaxation of the sport, but not the actual catching of the fish. I think one of these days, I'm going to take the rod and reel, and a loaf of bread, and sit on a pier and feed the fish! No hooks - just something at the end of the line to hold the bread. Then I can enjoy the relaxation without actually bothering with the fish.
