Chatting About This and That-#136
1.  Do you enjoy crossword puzzles, word finds, or any "word" activities? 
Oh yes! I love word games and especially the word puzzles over at  I do many word puzzles first thing after firing up the ol' computer in the morning. 
2.  What's on your dining room table right now? 
It is piled high, with mail, as it often is, when I have gone out of town.  That is where Mr BC goes to sort his medicine too and it is still lined up.  The only time it really gets cleaned totally off is when we are expecting company.
3.  Do you like Italian food? 
 Yes, the combo of pasta, cheese and tomato is fantastic.  I usually don't make it anymore but I love to go out to dinner to an Italian restaurant.   
4.  Did you ever want a brother, twin, or sister, when you were a child? 
I had my baby brother, who is seven years younger than I, and that was OK.  I think it would have been fun to have an identical sister, but other than that, I liked being the big sister.  Some of my friends had more siblings and seem to have had family drama.  I didn't and that was good. 
5.  How far away is the nearest grocery store?  
I don't call the Dollar General a grocery store, since they don't have produce and that and dairy are what I need most often, so, even tho it is in town, I am rarely in there.  The closest real grocery store is about 3 miles away. I usually shop on Wednesdays. And we do without until the next Wednesday.


  1. I've got to start doing those MW word puzzles again. They're really fun.

  2. I used to love the word games at Now that you've mentioned it, I am reminded that I have forgotten about it completely at least for two years.

    Have a great day.

  3. Maxeen comic is funny, but you know I'd be so happy to see my friend aka fat-around-my-belly drop out of my life altogether. I am looking forward to going to Carrabba's later in the spring for our anniversary. We got a GC at Christmas, which will be excellent! I love Italian food! I am a big sister, too. :)

  4. Gotta love Maxine! :)

    Word puzzles are great exercise for our minds. Although sometimes they are a struggle for me to do, I feel like I have to do them so that my brain can recover. Some days I wonder if that will ever happen, but it is a long, hard road. The puzzles make it a more fun road. :)

    I am the big sister, too.

  5. I haven't come across the word puzzles...must investigate.

  6. I love the cartoon! My table get cleared off every time we have someone visit. In the meantime, eh-uh- you know...
