Random XV- Sunday Stealing

Random XV
1. How old is the oldest pair of shoes in your closet? I have had to get rid of many shoes that I can't wear anymore so, I guess my Crocs are the oldest shoes in my closet, about 5 years old.

2. Did you buy Girl Scout cookies this year? If so, what variety? 1 box of Thin Mints, but I gave them $20 in donation.  I like the Girl Scouts.

3. Do you know how to ballroom dance? I can probably waltz somewhat.  I remember going to a cotillion class in 7th grade, in the evenings, where we learned manners and dancing. And then there was a dance at the end of it.  The boys had to be dragged to it and the girls loved it.  This was about 1959.

4. Were you a responsible child/teenager? I think so....maybe because of the manners class???  I very seldom did things behind my folks back or lie as I was pretty bad at it.

5. How many of this year's Oscar-nominated movies did you see? None before the show.  Since the Oscars, I have seen Philomena, American Hustle, Gravity, and best Animated....Frozen....just last week.

6. If you're going to have a medical procedure done, such as having blood drawn, is it easier for you to watch someone else having the procedure done or have it done yourself? Just do it yourself and get it over with.
7. What is your favorite day of the week and why? Wednesdays, as twice a month it is SS pay day.  When you are day is like the rest.  We try to get things done on weekdays when it is less crowded.

8. What’s the best compliment you’ve ever received?? "You don't look old enough to be retired."  I just got it at the hairdressers last week.

9. Do hospitals make you queasy? Not queasy, I am phobic about picking up germs, and use the hand cleaner if I touch anyone or anything.

10. At which store would you like to max-out your credit card? I'm not really a shopper....maybe I would max it out for a trip or a new kitchen.

11. Are you true to the brand names of products/items? Yes, to a certain extent.  I will try new things. It depends on what products they are.  Cleaners, toilet paper, cosmetics.....definitely. 

12. Which is more difficult: looking into someone’s eyes when you are telling someone how you feel, or looking into someone’s eyes when he/she is telling you how he/she feels? Nope

13. What’s one thing you’re deeply proud of — but would never put on your résumé? I once got a B in Geometry.....math not my strong suit.

14. What’s the most out-of-character choice you’ve ever made? I brought home a new dog from PetSmart charities, a month ago.  It was very out of character and I surprised everyone.  He is a 7 year old sweet heart. His name is Casper.

We now have 3 dogs.

15. What’s your personal anthem or theme song?
"Sittin' on the dock of the Bay" Otis Redding


  1. I LOVE your "dachshund nose art" sign! Mine's the dogs' (3 of them)

  2. Caspar is adorable! We used to do square dancing at Kramer's Hayloft with girl scouts (I think?). I can swing my parter and do-si-do with the best of 'em! LOL

  3. Shelter/rescue pets are the best! Congratulations on your new family member!

  4. Hold onto your Crocs ... they might be worth money someday ;-)

    Also, I LOVE your dog. We got a rescue puppy in October (I call him Howard the Wonder Dog lol), and he has enriched our lives so much!

  5. Aww! Casper is a cutie! It takes everything I have to be able to avoid those adoption days at the pet store. I would like to take them all home, but I know I just don't have the time to put in to be a good pet owner. If I ever retired, though..,

  6. Casper is adorable! :-) I love your suggestion for maxing out your credit card--a road trip adventure!

  7. Great theme song! Sometimes I wish I had another dog. Then I remember my asthma. I would donate to the Girl Scouts but I don't know any and they never come knocking on my door. Too rural, I guess.

  8. Casper is a cutie. I'd love to save all the dogs.

  9. I just had a nice experience with the No.8. question... thank you.

    Haven't danced for years. Did a lot of ballroom dancing when I was younger but I wonder if could do it now.

    Love that Otis Redding song.

  10. "You don't look old enough to be retired." I just got it at the hairdressers last week.

    I love compliments like that! :)
