Random Dozen - September 8, 2020

It has been a long time since I posted anything. For any of you who were/are faithful followers I am sorry. It has been a weird summer. I will try to post more about that in the days to come, but for now I am doing Random Dozen.

1. Describe the best sandwich in the world, according to you.
This is by far THE best sandwich. You can use any kind of bread (except white), Hellman's Mayo ( or whatever is the best in your part of the country), hard salami, colby cheese, lettuce, and sliced tomato. Oh my do I have a craving now.
2. Which inspires you more: a good conversation, a song, a book or movie?
Oh by far a good conversation. So much more to be gained by conversing. You can share ideas, opinions, goals. You might even learn a thing or two.
3. What is your favorite board game?
Is backgammon considered a board game? I love backgammon. If it is not then I guess Scrabble.
4. As you grow older, are you more or less patient with small children?
As a rule I don't like children. I mean I love my son and those children that are in my life, but other kids? Naw, I don't like them. So I have less patience.
5. Name one item you never let yourself run out of.
Toothpaste. I can not even imagine starting my day without a clean mouth. EWWW!
6. Do you agree with Tennyson's assertion, "'Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all?"
Yes. How could a person survive in this world not having experienced love. Even if that love didn't work out for the best you would still have known the heights of happiness.
7. Name one national treasure or monument that you have visited.
I don't know if this counts as a national treasure, but I like to say that I have walked across the Mississippi River. We have the head waters of the Mississippi in Minnesota located in the Bemidji Forest. It is a beautiful place full of walking trails and the wonderful head waters. It even boasts to having the tallest pine tree on record.
8. Which is more painful, to be disappointed in someone else or to be disappointed in yourself?
To be disappointed in myself, because only I can control what I do.
9. What makes your kitchen uniquely yours?
The mess? No really it would be the table cloth I embroidered for my table and a bowl of things on the table.
10. Are you a crafty person?
I like to think I am. I can knit, crochet, embroider, scrapbook, cook, but none of those things with the exception of cooking very expertly.
11. What is your favorite traditional picnic or bbq (cookout) food?
If it is BBQ at home it is hamburgers, potato salad, pickles and pie.
12. Name one leisurely activity you enjoyed over Labor Day Weekend.
I went garage saling Saturday. I left at 7:20 am and got back home at 3:30 pm. I had a great very relaxing day finding treasures everywhere.
