Wednesday Hodgepodge

Happy Wednesday Evening!
Kinda late to the party today! 
Stop by Joyce's it's not to late!

1. What's something you miss about the 1980's? If you're too young to miss the 80's how about the 90's?
My big hair....I have very thin hair now I'd trade for my big ol 80's perm! oh why were at it I'll take my 18 year old body too! I love 80's music so I miss that but thanks to Pandora radio you can always find your way to the 80's! 

2. Do you have a library card? If so, how often do you visit?
I never got one when we moved here to Western NY....almost 2 years ago now! I've been reading a lot too.....I usually buy.borrow and usually donate back to library after. 

3. What's the secret to success?
Believe in your self...set goals and follow through!

4. This is National Backyard Games week...what's your favorite backyard game?
Bocce Ball but we are embracing the East Coast game of Can Jam though I suck at it big time. 

5. If I dropped by today what would I find on your coffee table?
Not much....just spent all day cleaning....if it was yesterday...I'd say dust! 

6. Do you own a bicycle? When was the last time you rode a bicycle? Is that something you enjoy?
Yes I love my Africa was my mode of transportation for two in the last two years I've rarely ridden sidewalks and very rollie here. Last time I rode was almost a year ago...with our neighbors 30 miles along the Niagara River to the falls! 

7. What's your favorite cheese?
I love cheddar, swiss, brie....

8. Insert your own random thought here.
My hubby is coming home tomorrow after spending a large chunk of May traveling for work....I can't wait to have him home for a long weekend! Lots to do around the ol house hold....the honey do list is long! I'm glad he likes doing projects....the man can not sit I'll be there along side of him helping...really I do help! 

Happy Wednesdayish almost Thursday!

I've never heard of can jam-how do you play? Have a great long weekend with your hubs at home!

Joyce said...

Yeah what is can jam? My love is coming home tomorrow night. Dang we should have gotten together while they were gone. ;) Bo is missing Gary big time. I had to open the office door yesterday so he could take a nap in there. I didn't get all of my projects done. Dang... Oh well. enjoy!!! xo


It's always nice when the hubby comes home. ENJOY the weekend.

Ina in Alaska said...

Yup- add me to the list of those wondering what can jam is - maybe there is a You Tube - I am off to look!

Debby@Just Breathe said...

I have thin hair too and I use to get perms. Wow, 30 miles on your bike, that's impressive. I love most types of cheese. Have fun with your husband.

Ina in Alaska said...

Ok Kanjam has a good website & video. Looks like fun!! And hard!!

CM said...

What an adorable bike!

I miss the 80s too!

Mark said...

I can honestly say there is not one thing about the 80's that I miss. The births of my 3 girls the exception. A decade of bad hair, bad music and bad cloths. Can Jam??

a happy little life said...

ahhh BIG HAIR!!! perms!!! so many times i was talked into different types of perms that would 'fix' my thick natural curly hair. you know 'restructure' it. secret was the right hair products and stopped washing it every day. i'm surprised i have any hair now after living through the 80's.

and speaking of such i used to smoke... how did i not combust with all the aqua net i used... while smoking.

80's music... good stuff. can't get pandora here, now i spotify. husbands favorite is foreigner's 'acoustique' much more mellow version of favorites in our middle years.

me, not good at games in general. everyone wants me to play... they know they will win.

your africa bike is quite fetching! haven't been on a bike in years, little scared.

yeah for husband coming home!!!
have a sweet rest of the week :)

Love that pic! Never heard of can jam.
I miss my 80s perm too - I have thin hair too and I just long for those days when a perm would fluff it up to 3x it's volume.
My guy loves projects too and finds being an expat the worst for that - no hobbies so life is all about work. Have a great weekend! :)

bill lisleman said...

I don't know why but I get so critical of these questions.
"If you're too young to miss the 80's" Ah what if you are too OLD to remember the flash of the 80's years? It's all a big blur. Oh wait I need to find my glasses.
Can Jam ?? sounds dangerous.

We have had a week full of wetness....and I am anticipating a sunny weekend.
Enjoy being "reunited!" What is can jam?

Maggie May said...

No idea what can jam-how is! I guess, kicking cans about?
Enjoy the time with your husband.

You are probably glad u don't live by us anymore! We loved to drop in on u while walking our dogs. I love ANY kind of cheese, stinker the better! I never thought about donating old books to the library. Karl loves to stay busy too. I am hoping he will get up at 6 AM Saturday and take care of the weeds! Have a fabulous weekend!

Kwana said...

I definitely miss 80s music. :)

Cheese? Love (almost) all of them --most especially Gruyere.

Love you!
