Wednesday's Random Dozen is BACK!!!!

 Aren't we thrilled to have Linda back with her Random Dozen!! I know she deserved a break, but it sure wasn't the same on Wednesday while she was away. I bet she missed us too!

 1. When was the last time you laughed until you cried?
Just a little over a week ago at a play at our local theater. It was the Dixie Swim Club and it was just hysterical and I highly recommend it.  The director of the theater makes sure I am in attendance at all of the plays because of my very loud and contagious laugh.  He "claims" it's good for the audience and they will join in.  Oh, well, guess I could be known for something a whole lot worse.~smile~

2. If you found $10 today, what would you do with it?
Probably put $5 in each of the "Grans" piggy banks.

 3. Do you volunteer anywhere?
Not per say, but I do try to be aware of the needs of my older (I don't like the word elderly) friends and help with those whenever I can.  I'm quite sure I could do a whole lot more.
4. What is your favorite summertime veggie or fruit, and how do you eat it?

I love fresh purple hull peas, cooked with a little bacon, okra, mealed and fried and cantaloupe with salt and pepper. Oh, and new potatoes with butter, salt and pepper are just the BEST!
5. Is your social sphere (circle of friends) small, medium or large? I would say that my circle of friends is large. I have friends from all walks of life, varying personalities and interests and they all offer something different in their friendship.  Of course there are friends and there are  "bosom buddies."  Now that "circle" would be much smaller because I do not feel that a person can possibly have anything but a small circle of BEST friends.  I can't imagine life without my friends, they "double my joy and divide my grief." 

6. When was the last time you attended a family or school reunion? How did that go?

The Class of 70 - I'm on the 2nd row, 2nd from the right
 My class celebrated its' 40th class reunion on June 26th of this year.  It was super fantastic!!  We had a nice meal and then just a time of fellowshipping. We decided that the hearing of many is not what it once was (is anything?) and we would forgo any kind of music to try and talk over. ~chuckle~ It was an evening of sharing a lot of fun memories 

 7. When you're feeling blue, what is the best way someone can cheer you up? Well, it depends upon what I'm blue about. I'm not usually blue/sad alot but when I am, it's usually something major. Prayers, reassurance from the scriptures and a warm touch or hug from a loved one or friend is super "salve for the wound."

 8. Have you taken a vacation this summer? Hubby and I went to Point Clear, Alabama and then we also met family in Branson, Missouri, not big trips, but great fun!

 9. What is the most unnecessary item you carry with you all the time?  Well, I carry so many items in my purse/suitcase that my friends call me a boy scout because I'm pretty much always prepared for anything. I carry band-aids, wet ones, asprin, sissors, flashlight and a "bazillion" other things, and I don't think any of it is unnecessary. ~chuckle~
10. What is the best summer flick you have seen so far?
This is sad to admit, but the only movie I've been to this summer is Toy Story 3 with my daughter and Grandson. I've gotta do better. ~smile~

11. Describe a perfect summer day.
Beautiful weather, some "hubby and me" time, time with family  and not having anything that just HAS to be done.  Of course, I'm guilty of often thinking things HAVE to be done when they really don't. It's that weird part of my personality. ~wink~ I'm very blessed to have a lot of these kind of days.

12. Please a share a favorite photo from the summer so far!

Welcome to my little corner!


  1. You and I are about on par with the movies. I went to see Ramona and Beezus with my mother, sister and niece.~ I really like the picture of you with your niece and nephew. You have a beautiful famil. I think I've told you that before!:)

  2. Love reading these...maybe I should jump on the bandwagon sometime so I actually posted more than once a week!

    I NEVER see movies unless they are "kid" movies. In fact, last weekend we had a date night and we realized that the only movies we had even heard of were kid movies!

    Thanks for the words of encouragement yesterday. I will have to share with you soon about the changes I spoke of...trying to keep them under our hat for awhile.

    Have a great week!

  3. Beautiful! Friends double the joy and divide the grief! Love it!

  4. I love okra but just cannot find it anywhere here...I even asked at the farmer's market and its just not grown here. Can't even find it frozen in the supermarket. So sad! We go south a lot though and i always order it someplace.

    Enjoy your day!

  5. Your contribution to the meme is one that inspires me at every question to respond, but I can't do that, so let me just say I LOVED your answers. Wondering why you don't like "elderly" and what purple peas are!


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!
