Chatting About Beans and Things

1.  Do you like beans? (the dried bean variety) What do you like them in? 
I mainly put beans in Chili. I am not really fond of beans.
2.  Does your house have enough storage?  
Yes, at last I live somewhere, that has enough. I have attic space on the
second floor and we have a storage shed.  The problem is that we moved
here 2 years ago and still have things in moving boxes since there was 
plenty of space to store them.  It is always something.

3.  Do you have any childhood memories of a store? 
I remember taking the bus downtown to shop at the Woolworth and  JCPenneys with my mother. This was before Malls.  I was running around the aisles when I ran into a woman, who knocked me down giving me a goose egg on my forehead.  She never even stopped to see if I was ok.  I know it was probably my fault, but she should have stopped for me.
4.  Do you ever shop at a farmers market? 
We have several local farmer's'markets close by.  I usually go to the one on      
Tuesday and sometimes the one on Saturday if I am out and about.  
5.  Do you still have your wisdom teeth? Are you wise? :) :) 
I had them removed thirty years ago and did not seem to lose any of my smarts.  I just had two broken teeth removed. One.....that had a crown. and the oral surgeon place an implant so I could have a tooth placed.  It is very noticeably missing and I want to improve my smile.  Also I broke a     bridge and had to have the broken anchor tooth pulled so they can place a   new bridge. If I had been wiser I would have taken better care of the teeth   that were left behind.  


  1. What a fun memory of taking the bus to town to the store! Love that. I seriously go could go back to the days without malls. Have a great week!

  2. I agree! She should have stopped to make sure you were OK! I hope you can stop by and visit:



  3. Thank you for mentioning about taking the bus downtown with your mother when you were a child so you could shop. We lived in the country when I was growing up, and if I walked the mile to the bus stop I could take the bus to town...and I did use that form of transportation the first year I worked after graduating from high school. Your shopping trip with your mom sounds familiar.

  4. I enjoyed reading all of your answers!!

  5. I am going to the farmers' market on Thursday, and I am looking forward to it.
    Have a wonderful day.

  6. Do you remember the circular clothing racks that don't seem to exist anymore? When I was a kid, I LOVED crawling under the clothes and standing up inside the circle.

  7. I love the farmers' markets although I only get the occasional chance to see one. They come to our area by invitation.
