Perky Jerky Turkey-Wedesday Hodge Podge

1. Give us three rhyming words that say something about your Thanksgiving holiday (or your most recent holiday gathering if you didn't celebrate Thanksgiving). Cranberries, Calories, and BatteriesThe first two are self-explanatory (another rhyme) batteries come in to it as the battery is dead on my car and would not jump.
2. When did you last say, 'the more the merrier'? Did you mean it? A couple of  week ago, when I had 3 extra dogs on the property, Here, I believed I used the phrase, when I let Boomer's and Sammy's mom know that they were here and she couldn't pick them up until after work.  Boomer came by again on Sunday night, a neighbor brought him by, because her neighbor, said I knew the dog. I texted his mom again. She has a hard time keeping him in the yard. It had been over a week since he roamed his way over here. I do worry about his wanderlust, that is why if I see him coming, he is going in the yard.  The more the merrier.

3. What's one piece of advice you'd give someone who is your same age? Any one as old as me...69....doesn't need my advice. Except, maybe avoid moaning about how things were better or smarter, when back then.....and Kids weren't really any different/better.....when they were raising them. Don't happy.
4. You're ordering a veggie plate, what four veggies are on it? Mushrooms, onions, green beans and sweet potato fries.

5. Shop til you drop! Did you? Have you ever? Will you between now and Christmas?  One year my bank was merging with another one....and it wasn't going well.  I was working 10 and 11 hours a day, trying to take care of atm disputes, that were a mess. I was making a lot of extra money during the holidays, but no time to shop.  I did all of it the 2 days before Christmas. I have shopped online so far this year, and I might finish it there if I can.  I do not like the mall for shopping....only for walking.

6. What's your favorite chair in your house, and why is it a favorite? The recliner in the living room, where Mr BC is currently napping.  I am so glad that he is here to sleep in it.

7. Share an early memory of faith, religion, or spirituality. I went to church, from a very early age, but I was a little unorthodox. When I was a youngster, a dear friend of the family, who was my Sunday School teacher, really enjoyed telling the story on me....of how she asked if any one would like to sing a song.  I am sure she was hoping for a loud rendition of Jesus Loves Me or This Little Light of MineI raise my hand and proceeded to sing a Beer Jingle.  I am sure my mother was really dismayed the first time she told it.

As an adult, I have never been particularly spiritual and have always had difficulty with organized religion.  Aristotle—one of the first known Western thinkers to demonstrate that morality, virtue and goodness can be derived without appealing to supernatural forces—even arguing that "men create Gods in their own image" I am humanist-thinking, in nature and belief. But, I would never push my belief or lack of it off on others or ridicule others for their religious beliefs.  Except for the odd meme question, I usually stay quiet about what I think. My friends are always praying for me and I say thank you.
8. Insert your own random thought here.


  1. Love all your cartoons. The Campbell's Soup can is a riot! Have a great week!!

  2. Hi Katie...isn't shopping online so much easier than fighting the crowds? Works for me!

  3. Loved the random! And I'm a great online shopper. Amazon loves me! xo

  4. We had the most delicious apple pie over Thanksgiving and I offered my daughter a piece for breakfast. In my mind it's no different than a donut or pastry, right? : ) I enjoy online shopping and have done a bit of that this week. I don't feel organized in my head for Christmas gifts yet, but I'm trying. Moving in mid-November is not ideal, but we're happy to be in and I'm trying to roll with it.

  5. Yes, I had pie for breakfast just yesterday, isn't it great being all grown up! I round up the strays or lost pets in our area too, I just can't relax knowing they might get hit playing in the road. I even rescue turtles crossing the road. Have a great week.

  6. Your 'directions' image practically has me snorting wine out my nose!

    Love your take on the 'more the merrier'!
    These days and UPS are my BFs, forever. :)

  7. Your Sunday School story is funny. Suzanne and I used to teach 3 4 and 5 year olds in Training Union and sixth graders in Sunday School. It was a blast.

  8. Love the 'directions' - must copy to read to friends.

    Re the dog... it's a good job you're around to take him in.
