Share Your World 2016 – Week 36 (?)


Visit Cee’s Photography to learn how to take part in “Share Your World.”


Question # 1: If you were given a boat or a yacht today, what would you name it?


Question # 2: Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best: (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey)? Plus, what would the 8th dwarf’s name be?

Since I have never read the entire story of “Snow White”  — because I hate it — I am not familiar enough with the dwarfs to know what they are really like. And since at least 5 of their names are so negative in nature, I most certainly wouldn’t want to be connected with any of those 5.  As far as an 8th dwarf is concerned, it’s something I wouldn’t wish onto any reader.

Question # 3: Name a song or two which are included in the soundtrack of your life.

“I’ll Be Seeing You”
“Jesus Keeps Me Singing”

Question # 4: Complete this sentence: “I like watching …

I like watching rivers and oceans.

Bonus Question: What are you grateful for from this past week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?

I’m grateful for considerably cooler and less humid weather in our area.

This next Thursday my newest creative writing class begins. I’m always excited to help people who want to write and who want to learn more about their craft. I have several students who have taken a number of classes from me, and I always enjoy re-connecting with them, and I have some students coming on board for the first time this term as well.



Share Your World 2016 – Week 14


Cee’s Share Your World challenge is a great way to get to know fellow bloggers and let them get to know you. If you’ve never participated, try it. You’ll like it. Besides, it gives you a chance to talk about yourself all you want and not feel guilty for doing so.


Question # 1: If you could hire someone to help you, would it be with cleaning, cooking, or yard work?

Definitely with yard work!  I hate to do yard work, and my yard needs it desperately.
Bah Humbug!!!


Question # 2:  What makes you laugh the most?

Myself. No —- just kidding. I’d have to say Old Andy Griffith shows that featured Don Knotts.  I can just be thinking about some of those scenes, and I’ll start laughing right out loud — even though I can quote some whole scenes line for line, I still find them hilarious. (See video at end of this post for a sample.)


Question # 3:  What was your favorite food when you were a child?  

Okay, I know you all EXPECT me to say chocolate.  But I’m not going to do that.  The truth is that I just like food — lots of food — and almost all kinds of food. About the only things I can’t stand to eat are turnips, hominy, and head cheese. I honestly don’t remember if I had a favorite as a child, but if I did, it was probably potatoes, because, to this day, I love potatoes in any shape or form. I can eat them hot or cold or even lukewarm — boiled, fried, baked, mashed, or hashed.


Question # 4  List at least 5 favorite flowers or plants.

Okay some of my favorites — in order of preference — are as follows:


Blue Spruce Trees

Maple Trees

Oak Trees



Bonus Question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the coming week?

I’m grateful for all the chocolate Easter candy that was on sale for half price or less last week.

Next week, I’m looking forward to having some time off from teaching so many classes at one time. Everybody needs a little rest now and then, and maybe, with my “spare time,” I can finish the novel I’m posting one chapter at a time on here.


Here’s the video that goes with Question # 2.
