Last week I was mowing the lawn now I am a tad anal about the lines being straight so in the smaller spaces occasionally I will backtrack the mower, I was doing this and backed right into the cable box which is about knee high so I ended up sitting down pretty hard on the box

I am also sure had anyone had a camera this past winter when I was trying to wrap our 12' grapefruit tree when a hard freeze was expected There I was on the highest rung on a ladder in 30 mph winds with 8 clamps hanging from my shirt trying to drag 4 queen sheets sewn together over the top of the tree


Extra Credit Question:

Have you ever attended services in a House of Worship other than the Faith you follow ?


I was raised Lutheran, Many of my friends growing up were Jewish so I have attended services in synagogues with them as well as being invited to share Seder at their homes.

My MIL is Catholic so I have gone to Mass with her a couple times

One of the most beautiful weddings I have attended was celebrated at a Greek Orthodox Church

Hi karla and everyone.......

Your entitled to sleep in every now and again girl
Today's Question(s):

So have you ever been told you "remind folks of someone famous"

Do you see the resemblance ? well I have been told I resemble a few but they don't resemble each other.
someone told a while ago I looked like Shirley McLain. It was around the eyes.
Another said Loretta Lynn.....that was because of the high cheek bones.
I did see the resemblance of each at one time but not now.
My cheek bones have taken on a life of their own. LOL!!

In honor of Repeat Day Oh yes..........I repeat and repeat and then repeat somemore.

Is there one day in the past you would love to repeat ? probably several but a day I spent with my mom before she got sick. It's one of my fondest memories. And I still miss her.

Congrats to all the Overstock gift card winners! I was surprised to see how many I "know" !!

What was the last thing that happened to you,that would of made a funny "You tube" video ?
I use rolls of paper towel in my van to act as spacers for over sized or odd-shaped flower arrangements. They can be mushed around as a support, & I can tear off sheets quick if I need to dust off lily pollen, etc. Yesterday after a funeral delivery, I stopped to get gas & opened the side door to grab a paper towel to wipe my hands.

Pulled away not realizing that roll had rolled right out the van with the first sheet end stuck inside. I actually made it to the street light when a guy pulled up next to me pointing & laughing. The roll was destroyed, but still together, like one big long weaving rag! I can't believe it didn't rip apart - if only someone had filmed it, I could send the video to the paper company for a commercial!

Have you ever attended services in a House of Worship other than the Faith you follow ?
Many times. That is something I find very interesting: how different cultures and people worship their God.

Is there one day in the past you would love to repeat ? YEP....

Would you rather be on a :
Reality Show
Cooking Show
News Show
Game Show - I think this is the only one that wouldn't have me in handcuffs!

Have you every tried:
Rhubarb
Fennel
Pork Rinds ......all three.
But I won't be running out anytime soon for more.
I think my dad used to make German cookies with fennel...sort of a liquorice-anisette taste, I think?

Word of the day:
espy \ih-SPY\ , transitive verb:
To catch sight of; to perceive with the eyes; to discover, as a distant object partly concealed, or not obvious to notice; to see at a glance; to discern unexpectedly; to spy; as, to espy land; to espy a man in a crowd.
Like the word! How do you decide on these, Karla?

Oh Grannie, why the long face?

In Ireland a lady deemed a "Lassie" is a huge compliment!
And even tho we know you are kidding; Lassie was the most beautiful dog around back then.


(........Wasn't she played by a male dog for a time? )
