N, O and Hodgepodge

Joining Joyce at From this side of the Pond


1. April 15th is the deadline for Americans to file their state and federal income tax returns.  What's a job you do on a regular basis that could be described as 'taxing'? 

Poop scooping

2. I'm participating in the April A-Z blog challenge, and the Hodgepodge happens to fall on Day O this week. In keeping with that theme...olives, onions, oysters, okra...of the foods mentioned, what's your favorite O food?

Olives.....love them on my pizza...green ones especially 

3.  What is something memorable you experienced as a child that your own children (or future children/nieces/nephews) will not get to experience? 

Always feeling safe

4. Term limits for our elected officials...your thoughts? 

Yes I believe in limits....in Utah Senator Orin Hatch is on his 7th term thats about four too many! 

5. On April 18th, 1775, Paul Revere made his famous 'midnight ride'...when did you last make a midnight ride?  Perhaps the fate of a nation wasn't hanging in the balance, but tell us where you were headed anyway.

I'm not a big night driver....can't even recall the last middle of the night ride...probably when Katelyn was a baby and I was trying to get her to sleep. 

6.  What would freak you out more...a mouse running across your floor or a big fat hairy spider? 

A mouse...at least a spider you can stomp on.

7. I love it when people ask me________________________?

how I like living in WNY

8.  Insert your own random thought here. 

I will NEVER get use to the amount of violence and disregard for human life that happening in today's world.  OH how my heart is aching for all those lives forever changed....praying for Boston

It is starting to get harder for me to drive at night too! I sometimes can't see the middle section as I am turning corners! Pooping scooping no thanks! Never tried green olives on pizza, but I love olives. Must try!

#1-Haha! I hear ya!

My eyes are not what they used to be (what is??), so I prefer not to drive at night. I got new glasses and they're supposed to help with night glare, but I haven't really noticed. Mostly if we're out at night I nap and hubs drives, even if it's only a short distance : )

I'll never begin to understand how one human being can be driven to harm another in such a horrendous fashion. What broken thing inside makes this possible?

I like olives too. I've been known to eat a jar of the black ones.

Hey we could share a pizza together. Well as long as you didn't just get done poop scooping.

You win the prize with your answer on picking up the poop!!!! How could I not think of that. I know that this crime could have been done by an American but I do believe our country has been too lax in allowing everyone to come here. If I wanted to live in another country it would be close to impossible. Our standards have been lowered over the years.

I also love olives, especially the ones stuffed with either cheese or garlic. Okra is also pretty yummy although not a fave for everyone. I can't fathom all that is going on in our world. It can be sod discouraging if not for faith! You're not alone in your night driving challenges. It seems to be more of an issue for me as I get older.

I kinda hate missing on the A-Z Challenge, especially now knowing you are on it. Hello Kathy.

I miss always feeling safe too - just thinking back to how we used to just go out to play and come back home for supper amazes me.
I also hate driving at night. My glasses are supposed to be anti-glare but I don't believe it!

I miss that feeling of being safe. When we were kids, we could walk barefoot to our cousins houses and then, camp out in the front yard during the summer time. There wasn't any real fear, other than the "boogie man".

My favorite o food is also olives although fried okra is pretty tasty too.

This age thing sure changes the view on night driving for me. I try to run all of my errands during the day. The glare is horrible!!

Thanks for your words of encouragement.

I'm not a fan of poop-scooping, either, especially when it involves cats. Good thing we don't have one.
