Wednesday's Random Dozen

1. What is your favorite sign of Spring? When the grass greens up and the Daffodils begin to show their faces. Love it!

2. Did you remember to spring forward on March 14? If not, how did it impact your day? Not only did I remember, I changed all our clocks (and we seem to have a bazillion of them) by mid-afternoon on that Sat. I had my husband so confused until he realized that I had already "sprung forward." I always like to be "one step ahead of the game." ~chuckle~

3. If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what vegetable would you plant in a garden this year? Squash or okra, I love to eat both of them and go to our local Farmer's Market a buy it from local growers during the summer. I've never had a vegetable garden in my life and likely never will. Just isn't "my thing."

4. If soil, time, talent and climate were no problem, what fruit would you plant? Well, believe it or not, I'm not much of a fan of fruit, but guess I would probably have a vineyard of grapes (totally seedless though). And, perhaps an apple tree. Those are about the only fruits that I will eat. I know, weird...........

5. What is your least favorite insect? Oh, my, I have NO favorite but we have a lot of red wasps in our area and they HURT big time when they sting, and we have these big creepy water bugs, that are just plain gross!

6. March 22 was World Water Day. To celebrate, here are some water questions. Do you drink bottled water? If so, what brand?
How interesting that you would ask this.......Four weeks ago I decided to become a "water drinker." I have never drank enough, and I decided it was time to start drinking water. I buy the 10 oz. Sam's Choice bottles and I drink 6-7 of them per day. Needless to say, the first 4-5 days, I lived in the bathroom, but I guess my bladder adjusted to the new feeling and things "leveled out." Thank goodness!

7. Have you ever been somewhere that it was not safe to drink the local water? If so, how did you handle that? Yes, to Acapulco and to Tangiers and the travel company we were with provided us with bottled water. They had us so scared of the local water that if we had been desperate we likely would not have drank it.

8. How many glasses of water do you drink per day? See #6

9. March 24 is the birthday of Harry Houdini. Have you ever watched a professional magic show? Share. Oh, yes! Our family saw David Copperfield two different times and he was TOTALLY amazing. Our favorite memory from his shows was when he appeared in the middle of the audience on a motorcycle. Have no idea how we couldn't see something or figure out how it was done, but we had "not a clue" and still don't. It is one of our favorite family memories.

10. Have you ever been a participant in a professional magic show (up on stage!)?

No 11. March 24 is also the birthday of Steve McQueen and Clyde Barrow. Do you like Westerns or gangster movies? If so, what is your favorite? Well, hate to admit it, but I really do not care for either and I am sure that I should know who Clyde Barrow is, but for the life of me, I can't remember ever hearing of him. Shame on me!! After all, I am 57 years old! ~chuckle~

12. (Really random) What U.S. state that you've never visited would you like to visit someday? I just told my husband the other day that I would like for us to go to Maine and Vermont in the fall of the year sometime. I think that is likely the best time of year for their real beauty.

  3. Thanks for playing Random Dozen, CiCi! I love the daffodils - especially the tiny ones!

    A lot of people really love David Copperfield!

    Oh -- and Clyde Barrow was the Clyde of Bonnie & Clyde! He was one really bad dude!

  4. Hello to my Louisiana Bloggy Sister! I'm with you on Fruit, it's a big treat to lots of people, but except for a banana (which must have some PB on it) I only enjoy fruit in a pie!...What was it like in Tangier and where is that located? (blush) BTW, I didn't know who Clyde Barrows was either!. . .I signed on to Follow you so I'll be baaaack!

  5. I had no idea who Clyde Barrows was either! I like westerns though. Your water answer was quite different than mine. I need to follow your example and drink more water! Have a blessed end to the week!

  6. I saw that David Copperfield show where he appeared on his motorcycle also. He is just to amazing!


  7. I would love to go to Maine! I have never been there either. I am so excited to FINALLY be seeing a little spring, although today it is spring rain...but I guess I can't complain.

    I am the opposite of you. I like a few veggies but I LOVE fruit!

  8. We had some similar answers. Maine is one state I'd like to visit, and I like apples and grapes (thought I also like oranges and bananas. I like canned peaches and pears, but everything else I like fresh.) I don't care for westerns or gangster movies, either.


So glad you stopped by and hope you enjoyed your visit. I love your comments and read each and every one of them and I always try to reply to them. Blessings to you this day!
