Random, Randomness - Sunday Stealing

1.  How did you choose your baby's or pet's names?
When we were selecting a name for our corgi, we wanted to pick a Welsh one with some meaning. One of the meanings of Gwendolyn is white circle. Our Gwennie had a white ring around her neck.

A Kick in the Head-Saturday 9

1) In the song, Dean sings, "Ain't That a Kick in the Head?" to express how delighted he is to discover the girl loves him. When was the last time you were pleasantly surprised? I have been pleasantly surprised that I love my new home here in Missouri so much.  It is wonderful here with the change of seasons, and Mr BC's bird feeders bring the nature to our yard.

Chatting about Bluegrass

Everyday Ruralty

1.  How well do you handle change? Better than some at my age and circumstance (old and retired).  I like a little change it makes life interesting. I am not always crabbing about how it use to be better, even though some times 'it did use to be better.'   I can adapt eventually to most change. I initially had a hard time adjusting to retirement, I kept feeling at the end of the day, that there was something I didn't get done.

Chatting on the Porch-Epic Fail

Everyday Ruralty
  • What's  the one thing you feel is the biggest waste of  your time during an average week?Playing games on the computer.  Last night, I was playing Spider Solitaire and decided I would go to bed when I won a game.  Half an hour later I finally went to bed.... a loser.

Dominoes - Saturday 9

I have to say I like the other Pink better. Unfamiliar with this week's song? Listen to it here.

1) Have you ever carefully set up dominos and then watched them fall? Or built a house out of playing cards? When I was a kid. A lot of work for such a short impact.

How I Should Have Spent My Vacation

I would love to say that our vacation to Santa Barbara was an unqualified success.....but that would be painting too rosy of a picture.  The Boys, including my son-in law were in the middle of a virus.....that just kept giving.  SIL brought it home from Florida, the previous week.  Two days later DD1 came down with it and was hit harder than the grandsons.  Then Caшa, who had seemed to be improving, got an ear infection, so off we went to Urgent Care.  Everyone would have a good day then the really congested, or coughing.....Grandma and Grandpa Bankerchick came down with it the second week  and all bets for fun, were off.  Gratefully the Au Pair never got we all got ....some... rest.  But it put a damper on the plans for the visit

Sunday Stealing

What would you choose to be famous for? 
I would like to be famous for finding a cure for something serious.

If you have a webcam, are you ever paranoid people can see you? 
No, not really I am not sure how many kicks a voyeur would get of me sitting in my blue chair. I always close my computer when not in use.

Band on the Run-Saturday 9

1) This song is about a band of musicians that escapes on an adventure. Do you consider yourself spontaneous and adventurous? I am somewhat adventurous, but I like to plan a little.
