The Wednesday Hodgepodge

And, here's this week's Hodgepodge questions and my answers..........

1. "The cure for anything is salt water-tears, sweat, or the sea." (Isak Dinesan) Would you agree? Of the three, which has 'cured' you most recently?
Oh, I've always said that tears are very therapeutic for me.  I was caught a little off guard with some news a couple of weeks ago.  I immediately began to cry and then I pulled my boot straps up and I was ready to go!  That's the way I cope.  Thankfully I'm not one to just cry and cry and cry.  I can pull myself together and go forth after a good cry.  I wish that I had a pretty cry but I do not.  It's pretty much pitiful and ugly. 😃 

2. What's something you can't eat without salt? Do you normally salt your food a lot, a little, or not at all?
Oh, there's a lot of food that I can't eat without salt but the first thing that came to my mind was salsa.  I'm so glad that the restaurant we frequent  for Mexican food gives everyone there own salsa bowl.  If I had to share, it just might not work.

3. Sands of time, bury your head in the sand, built on sand, or draw a line in the sand...which sandy phrase could best be applied to something in your life right now? 
I haven't really done this but I have certainly felt like burying my head in the sand over all the negativity surrounding our new President.  Good grief, it saddens my heart and I pray that in the coming months we will see a major transformation across our country and MEDIA!!!

4. A favorite book, movie, or song with an island setting or theme?
The Elvis movie from 1966, Paradise, Hawaiian Style, filmed in Oahu.

5. Yesterday-did you run your day or did it run you? How so?
I definitely ran it and I really try to do that each day.  But, life happens and some days just get the upper hand.  ~chuckle~

6. You're on an island holiday. Will I most likely find you parked in a beach chair, shopping in town, on the back of a jet ski, or snorkeling off the back of a catamaran?
Most likely I would be shopping in town, but with the right driver, I could be on the back of a jet ski.  A right driver would be one that was careful and not driving foolishly. ~just so you know~

7. What do you think we humans most take for granted?
Life in general.  I probably don't take my life for granted at this point as much as I have in the past.  And, that's, no doubt, due to the fact of aging.  I use to never give tomorrow a thought but I have lived long enough now to know that our lives can change in a moments notice and tomorrow is not a guarantee.  That's just one of the many reasons that I'm so glad that I am HIS and HE is mine.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Have you heard?????  Patton did become the White House dog.  I absolutely love "doodles."  My brother and his wife have one and theirs was the first I had ever even seen or heard of.  And, he has no idea he is a dog. ~grin~  I, personally, cannot think of a better "first dog."  Just one more feather in Trump's hat!

Hi there! My name is Lea. I've been wife to the best Hubby for 44 years....Mom to a son and daughter....CiCi to 4 precious Grans....lover of family and friends....enjoy laughter and a good time....shopper....picture taking maniac....maker of delicious fudge....organizational enthusiast....memory maker....Southern Belle...and most importantly.....a Child of the King! Welcome to my little corner!


  1. Patton is adorable! Great post, so true about what we take for granted, sentiments shared by many in this Hodgepodge.

  2. I had not heard that, Lea! I learn so much from reading blogs. Totally agree with number 3! I hope that the incredibly biased media will become irrelevant now that President Trump brings the news directly to us. I do not need a talking head with a liberal mindset explaining things for me.

  3. Enjoyed this as always and totally agree with number 3. For goodness sake... enjoy your day!

  4. Patton is such a cutie...what a wonderful choice! I, like you, will be praying for our President, First Lady, and Vice President. It's high time we pull together as a country and offer them our support.

  5. I do wish we could come together, or at least make an effort to come together. The hate is so exhausting and I have pretty much reduced my Facebook news feed to just a few. Let's talk about something else already. It's an election and there's another one in four years if you're not happy with the current administration. I personally am happy to see a president working hard. Course he's not perfect, none of them are, but I think we need to give him a chance, as is the American way. Hope you're doing well and have a wonderful day!

  6. Oh my Patton is absolutely adorable and will be the perfect White House dog :)

    Have a blessed day, lovely lady. Hugs!

  7. Does anyone have a pretty cry? haha. I wishing and waiting for all the angst to dissipate too. It's so tiring to hear it all the time. Praying that the new President does something fabulous so the media will stop already. Oh my gosh,that's a darling dog!

  8. I've often wondered if it is a requirement for every incoming prez to have a dog. Not really being a pet person, I wonder who really cares for the dog and with Barron and mom living in NYC, who will enjoy him? I don't really see Trump being still long enough to have a dog in his lap. But, he is cutie for sure.

  9. I didn't know if the First Dog was a rumor when I first heard about him, but now that you've published the news, I believe it. He is aA.D.O.R.A.B.L.E!!!!


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!
