Hodgepodging Right Along...

Grab the questions and don't forget to link up over by Joyce.  Don't miss out on all the fun!

1. What's your worst food memory?  How about one of your best?
Really having a hard time thinking of one.  I was very disappointed when I tried a Sonic Chicago Style Hot Dog - sorry folks not like I remembered.  There was no comparison to the taste.  Best one that comes to me quickly was a couple years ago we were in Branson and decide to try Old Chicago Pizza.  We ordered the Deep Pan Chicago Style - I have to tell you I was in heaven.  That was the best pizza I had tried since I left Chicago back in 79.  Very similar - yeah a very good food memory!

2. Do you appreciate people telling it like it is, or would you rather a speaker temper his/her words and maybe beat around the bush a little?  How about when you're the one communicating...which type are you? 
I like straight forward talk as long as it is not vulgar or disgusting.  And I am usually pretty straight forward.  It is what it is people!

3. What's your favorite place to hang out?
These days I would have to say my craft room!

4. When do you most feel like you're a slave to time?
All I have is time... do not really feel that way.

5. What was the last concert you attended?  Who'd you go with? Was it any good?
I went with my hubby and we seen Bill Gaither Trio.  Great concert!

6. Reality TV...harmful or harmless?  What's your guilty pleasure when it comes to reality TV?
I really think some of them could be harmful. Some of them have awful language.  I am not into TV a lot.  I have to say I enjoy American Pickers and I like to watch Duck Dynasty.

7. What's something you think is overrated?
There is quite a few things that are overrated!  A lot of the movies, and shows are definitely overrated.  Material things in general tend to be overrated.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
We have a special couple that attends our church that sure could use your prayers.  They are both in the hospital.  She has been dealing with pain and different things for about 5 months now.  They have not been able to determine what is causing this.  It may be Post Polio Syndrome, and of course they do not know a lot about that.  She had polio as a child.  Last Thursday her husband thought he was having a heart attack and Shirley called us.  We got there before they left with him in the ambulance.  He was also coughing up blood.  He has acid reflux, takes medicine for it.  When they got him to the hospital they ended up having to give him 2 pints of blood.  Not sure all the results on him - they let him go home Monday.  Meantime her son got her admitted to try to find out what is going on.  This morning, Tuesday - he was brought back to the hospital, he was slurring his words, leaning to one side, hand and face drawn a little and dragging foot a little - he had a light stroke.  So now they are checking him out again.  Please remember this sweet couple in your prayers they are having a tough time of it!  Thank you!

until next time...nel


  1. Oh goodness, that is a lot for two people to cope with...I will keep them in my prayers today.

    I love the Gaithers. Their music makes me think of Sunday mornings as a child. My dad always played their albums as we were getting ready for church.

  2. wow, that last couple is under the gun...hope things get better for them
