The Wednesday Medley





It's Wednesday and Terrie has once again come up with some questions with us for us.  Here's my answers........



1.     On December 5, 1901, Walt Disney was born.  Have you been to Disneyland or Disney World?  Can you share a favorite Disney memory?
Our family has been 4 or 5 times and our last time was last summer (2017) when we took the Grans and their parents. It was great to take the Grans but I really feel like DW is a bit over rated.  Yes, it is a fun place, a VERY clean place but there is so much to see and do in the US that I feel parents often choose Disney over other great destinations.  AND, IT IS SO EXPENSIVE!!!! I have no plans to ever return, "been there, done that, and have gotten several t-shirts."

2.     The first roller coaster attraction at Walt Disney World was Space Mountain.  Do you/did you like roller coasters?

I have not cared for roller coasters for probably 40 years.  I remember riding a few in my teen years but I wised up and left that to those a bit more fearless than myself.

3.     The very first fairy tale that Walt Disney made a cartoon about was Little Red Riding Hood.  Did you enjoy fairy tales when you were a youngster or did they scare you?  Did you have a favorite?

Well, I knew every word of Little Red Riding Hood and absolutely loved it.  I loved other fairy tales as well but LRRH was by far my favorite.  I loved the part where "the fox huffed and he puffed till he blew the house down."  

4.     In Lady and the Tramp, Tramp’s real name was Butch!  Do you have nicknames for your fur-babies and/or for your children?
We do not have any fur babies, they stayed with the buyers who bought our old house. I call my firstborn Granddaughter "my Princess" and my second born Granddaughter, "my Sweetheart."  That is as close to nicknames as we get around here.

5.     I can’t let this day go by without respecting George H.W. Bush, as he lays in state in the Rotunda of our Capital today.  He was our 41st President and only the second father to have a son follow him as President of the United States.  President Bush loved his colorful socks.  I bought Joe a pair of George H.W. Bush socks for Christmas one year.  I know Myra has a pair… any other bloggers checking in today who have a pair of the Presidential socks in a drawer at home?  How do you feel about colorful socks?

No Presidential socks in our house but I do love colorful socks and it seems men are especially "into" them.  I may need to get Hubby a couple pair for Christmas and see if he would wear them. ~grin~

6.     Please tell us something random about your week!
I had a not so pleasant experience yesterday at a doctor's office.  I needed a very common prescription refilled and I had to see the Dr. to get it refilled.  I've been taking this drug for years and as I said, it is a common drug and I do not see the need in having to see the Dr. each year just to keep taking it.  But, it is what it is so I made my annual appointment. My appointment was for 12:30 and apparently the other 7 people in the waiting room appointments were at 12:30 too (as they didn't even start seeing patients until 12:30).  I sat down and within minutes a man began uttering curse words one right after the other and another man joined in with him for all to hear.  Together they were cursing and talking ugly and nasty about their appointment times and how long they always had to wait to see the Dr.  I was getting my fill of it when another man walked in and the receptionist told him to have a seat.  He went off with a rampage of words that would have made the toughest man blush.  And, a woman sitting near me thought it was so funny and was laughing at them.  By this time I was about to absolutely blow a fuse.  I went to the window and asked the receptionist if I could speak to her in private. She opened the door for me to come back and I told her that I was leaving that I would not continue to sit in the waiting room and listen to such filth.  She knew exactly what I was talking about and said she certainly understood and was so very sorry that these men were behaving in such a manner.  A couple of nurses overheard our conversation and apologized profusely and said they were going to get me some free samples of the prescription I was there to get filled.  That was fine and I appreciated it but I was so appalled at the behavior of these folks that it took me a couple of hours to get myself back on track.  I guess I'll never cease to be amazed at what some folks will say and do and not care who sees or hears them.  Heaven help us all!  I do believe there should be a protocol for folks behaving in such a way in a public place.  My husband owns a business and there have been some times that he has asked folks to leave that were behaving in an unbecoming manner.  There is a correct way to state your grievances. 


Happy Wednesday!!!!

  1. It must have been that kind of day. I had a similar incident but with a woman I thought was my friend. I couldn't believe the words coming out of her mouth. I used to be a big Disney fan, but not anymore. I have never been to Disneyworld and have no desire to go.

  2. Yes, I know all too well what you went through yesterday at the doctor's office, but I think you handled the situation very well. Last spring, I needed a prescription refilled and the physician wouldn't fill it because I had not been to see him in over a year (General physician and I had not been sick!). It wasn't something that I take often, but when I need the meds, I need them, so I was kinda ticked about that. Hope you are enjoying the holidays!

  3. I completely agree Lea!! My parents taught us not to use language like that but my sister raised her girls that certain cuss words are fine! Half of the things out of their mouths make me blush!!! It is crazy to me and it is such a horrible thing to hear filth out of an otherwise beautiful person! UGH AND ICK!!! Society is not headed in a good direction! Also, I marched down to Lowe;s yesterday ready to let them have a piece of my mind and as I started talking, I just started crying. They are swapping out my dishwasher for an even better one and a different brand so I guess that speaks volumes!

  4. It is amazing what our world has come to in what is acceptable in public places...and don't even get me started on pants that the crotch hangs at knee level making their legs look about 10" long. lol If they only KNEW how they looked/were perceived. LOL

    I was about the 10th person in line when DW opened in 1971 so I had a 'star' picture on the little "history" spot just inside the main gates. Not sure if it is still there or not. Back then-Fantasy Land was the only thing open. Epcot and all the other theme parks were yet to come.

    Have a great day- xo Diana

  5. Good grief! I am just floored at the behavior of people these days and the language that is acceptable. I would have been very upset, too and am not sure I could have kept sitting there. We grew up in a house where the worst thing said was by my dad and that was dadgum! It's good you said something to the staff, but I guess they don't know how to handle it and those kind of people wouldn't hesitate to say all kinds of things if someone dared ask them to not talk that way.

    On a lighter note, I must remind you that it was the wolf in The Three Pigs who huffed and puffed to blow the house down! 😜

  6. Oh Lea!! That would have made me so uncomfortable at the doctor's office! It is unfortunate how the office scheduled the appointments though. I am sure everyone was upset. You are right though, there is a way you should conduct business and cursing is not the way. I enjoyed your answers! Happy Wednesday!

  7. I am so sorry you had to endure those men and their nasty words while waiting to see your doctor. I get frustrated too when it seems they book six people for each 15 minutes, but I sure don't curse about it. You did the right thing. What a shame! On a brighter note, I am so glad you joined in on the Medley today! I enjoyed your answers! Let us know if you get hubby that pair of colorful socks!

  8. I think I'd change doctors if you don't hear from him. He owes you an apology. Hope your week improves.

  10. I went to Disney World once, and that was enough. I guess I'm not into crowds, and yes it is so expensive! We took our kids camping, and enjoyed visiting the beach so much more!
    Sorry you had that experience. I've been in restaurants and shops where I've heard the staff use curse words between themselves in front of the customers, complaining about something or another! They should be fired! But it seems people accept it as a matter of course. Sad.

  12. I am soooo behind in reading and commenting on my favorite blogs! Grands and Christmas have had me on overload! About the colored socks...my hubby would NEVER wear them, but I like them:) About your dr. visit...appalling!!!! The dr. should have come out and spoken to these people or better yet perhaps the police should have been called. It's hard to believe those men would be so disrespectful especially around women!!! But even worse (in my opinion) was the woman laughing at them!!!!! I don't know what has happened to the manners or morality of many of our citizens. I was in WalMart today and this "lady" rode up to the customer service area on one of those motorized buggies and starting pitching a (loud) fit about how the buggy didn't work right. Well, I could really go on and on but I won't! Glad you got those samples but that doesn't make up for the fact that no one really did anything about those men!!!

  13. YUCK! Having to be in the presence of that kind of behavior is very rattling. Sorry you had to have that experience. Happy weekend!!! XO

  14. Wow. People these days have no filter, they just say whatever they want & don't think about or care that others can hear.
