Debut of Wednesday Hodgepodge

Yeah for Joyce!  She has created a new meme called Wednesday Hodgepodge!  Alot of us were missing the Random Dozen that Lid at 2nd Cup of Coffee had graciously hosted for us, so Joyce decided to have a go at it.  If you would like to join us Joyce will post the questions on Tuesdays at her corner of cyberspace at From This Side Of The Pond and then on Wednesday mornings she will have Mr. Linky waiting for us.  It may take a little while to get the kinks worked out but she will be rolling them out before we know it.  The button above is still not working quite right, unless it is just on mine.  It will take you to her blog but the picture is not showing.

Well here we go:

1. Do you think you're more like your mom or your dad?
That is a hard one, the more I think about it the more I guess I am like my mom at least in a lot of ways.  My dad was always pretty quiet, never talked alot especially to strangers -definitely the opposite of me, did I ever mention I love to talk.  I did get my tempermant from my Dad though, it took a lot to make him mad.  He never let things get him down, and I guess I am alot like that.  I always believe you pick yourself up, you brush yourself off and continue on.  And it does take a lot to make me mad but if I get there hold on to your hats, cause she is going to blow.  Doesn't happen very often, the Lord and me worked that out quite awhile ago.  Amazing how He can change your life!

2. Do you like roller coasters?
No, not even.  I never have liked them.  I have been on a few small ones and even those I would have my eyes closed.  lol.  But now not such a good idea with the pacemaker.

3. How did you name your blog and do you now wish you'd thought about it maybe another five minutes before you hit publish? Would you change your blog title if it were not a huge pain in the derriere? (French makes everything sound a little nicer doesn't it?)
I guess my title is kinda boring, but I kinda like it.  I am glad to have the Fastenau name... Have I ever mentioned life is good!  Alot different than the first time around!

4. What is the best wedding gift you received? Not married? Didn't get any gifts? Then what is the best wedding gift you've given?
Wow, we got several nice gifts.  We got several frames and a couple of photograph albums those are always great to have especially for a photo addict.

5. What is the one bill you most hate to pay?
It bites me to pay the Dish bill.  Part of that is because I very seldom watch TV and the other part is because there is never anything worthwhile on.

6. Is the glass half full or half empty?
Half Full of course.  Life is what you make it!  If you have the Lord in your heart that glass should be half full or full!

7. What is your favorite word? Okay okay. Calm down. How about one of your favorite words?
I think Arkansas - If were talking Arkansas then I am usually planning a trip to see my daughter and grandkids!  And yes we are on the road again come Friday!  So definitely Arkansas!

8. Now, this is where you insert one random thought of your own.
The thing that keeps going through my head is how glad I am that Joyce started this Wednesday Hodgepodge.  You rock Joyce!

Well that is it folks, hope you enjoyed yourself!  I had fun!

until next time... nel


  1. I can see the picture on your blog so hopefully everyone else can too. It may take me a couple of tries to figure this all out completely. I'm glad you played was fun to read your answers. I'm with you on the roller coasters : )

  2. glad someone came up with another meme for the Random Dozen; this sounds like a cute one too! I'm with you with the roller coasters!! I don't think our bodies are meant to go through some of those things that roller coasters do (upsidedown, etc :)


  3. I'm really glad Joyce decided to take this on. She did a really good job, and I love the new button Daughter1 made for her.
    When we were in Copenhagen a couple of summers ago, uncle's lady friend insisting on riding some rides with YS and ended up in the infirmary. I know better than to even attempt to get on them!

  4. As always, I enjoyed your answers, Nell. I know what you mean about the Dish bill, and I agree!
    Have a great time with those grandkids--in your favorite word--Arkansas!

  5. Excited to visit you for the Hodgepodge! Have fun in Arkansas!

  6. How exciting that you're going back to Arkansas (and your daughter & grandkids) on Friday! Yay! Have a wonderful time!

  7. Great answers as always. I so agree with you on rollercoasters. Petrified of them.
    Enjoy your trip, grandchildren are so awesome.

  8. I like the debut, someone else said inaugural, very smart ladies you are! I do like roller coaster but don't do them very often anymore. I am glad Joyce started this too. I miss Random Dozen and I adore answering questions.

  9. I like your answers! Hate roller coasters, too and you sure seem like an optimist to me. Hope you enjoy your time in ARKANSAS!

  10. Hi - love your answers and the grandkids are cuties!! hoping to get to know you better thru this Wednesday Hodgepodge! Joyce does rock!!!

  11. Thanks for stopping by, Nel! I like your down to earth blogging.

  12. Wow a lot of us do not like roller coaster! I'm kind of surprised about that but then again, a lot of us have common sense! It's so nice to go visit other blog that I have never found before. This was fun.

  13. I enjoyed your answers and visiting your blog!! and I am glad Joyce took on this great endeavor!!!

  14. Hey congratulations on your new book from A Joy ful chaos,hope you enjoy it

  15. You sound like my hubby about rollercoasters. The last time he rode one he promised God he'd never ride another one if he just let him get off alive. He's kept that promise too. lol

    Hope you have a great time in Arkansas. Drive careful!
