Random Dozen

Thank you Miss Linda for your fine questions!

1. On a scale of 1-10, how superstitious are you, honestly? I'd have to say about a five. I have a black cat and walking under ladders doesn't scare me but I really don't like walking through grave yards, I don't want to step on anybody...

2. Julius Caesar is quoted as saying, "I came, I saw, I conquered." Which circumstance or experience of yours does this saying best describe? My teenage years. I NEVER want to go back to that...yeah I conquered them, I'm still hear to talk about it.

3. If I peeked in on your day like a mischievous little leprechaun, at what time would I most likely find you blogging? Truthfully I haven't been blogging much, I'm just too busy farming and and tending my island paradise over on facebook.

4. Re springing forward for Daylight Saving Time, is there anything you've ever been really early or really late for? I'm usually always early, unless it's a morning appointment, I don't get my flesh in gear until after or about 10am, anything before that and it'll be late. Now, if you expect it on or around 10am then I'm early. :)

5. What are you most looking forward to concerning Spring? SUNSHINE and breaking out the flip flops!

6. Shamrocks are the national flower of Ireland and are picked on St. Patrick's Day and worn on the lapel or shoulder. Do you wear green on St. Patty's Day? Yep. I dress the kids up too. It's my Mother in laws birthday so we send her a family picture of us all wearing our green! No, we are not irish.

7. One of Caesar's assassins, Casca, said, "But, for my own part, it was Greek to me," which of course means he didn't understand something. Probably his own lines in the play. Anyway, what is something that is "Greek to you," something incomprehensible or indecipherable? Pie, the number thing not the dessert. Oh and Algebra. Seriously, a x b does NOT = a number, they are LETTERS. Adding them together makes WORDS. Everybody knows that!

8. Is March behaving more like a lion or a lamb where you live? Honestly, it's been very mild, almost too mild...we have a saying here: "We haven't begun tournaments yet!" We have high school and college tournaments we NEVER and I mean NEVER make it through March without some kind of snowfall. Correction: BIG snowfall. and then we end up with the rivers flooding.

9. "An extra yawn one morning in the springtime, an extra snooze one night in the autumn is all that we ask in return for dazzling gifts. We borrow an hour one night in April; we pay it back with golden interest five months later." -Winston Churchill. If you had one extra hour per day every day, what would you do with it? Read and write.

10. Legend says that every Leprechaun has a pot of gold hidden deep in the Irish countryside. Aside from real gold or money, what material item would be in your dream pot of gold? hmmm, it's a toss up. I want to say chocolate but I can get that at the store, but finding something well now that would be diamonds! Big ones, baby ones, colored ones, clear ones...pretty PRETTY diamonds.

11. "The best things are nearest: breath in your nostrils, light in your eyes, flowers at your feet, duties at your hand, the path of God just before you." Robert Louis Stevenson. Look around you right now and tell us about something essential or beautiful very near you that you take for granted every day. Most near me is my cat Tabitha. She has been a very good pet and friend and I don't even like cats. She saw me through my wild days, so yeah she and I have fondness. Then I'd have to say the pictures on my wall, those photos can never be replaced and they are pictures of loved ones both with us and those that passed on. They are memories. One's true treasure.

12. Just for a bit o' fun, click here (www.blogthings.com/irishnamegenerator/) and then report your Irish name. Mine is "Zoe O'Sullivan." I love it! Izett Flynn and the quote "What butter or whiskey does not cure cannot be cured."

QUICK get me a whiskey and a good ole pat of butter!


  1. Enjoyed your answers. Glad you joined in this week. And your right photos are prized possessions. True treasures!

    until next time... nel

  2. #9 so what are you writing? Will we see a sequel to your book? yes?

    whiskey and butter.....sounds like paula deen! ha!

  3. We have the same kind of springtime weather here. In fact we've just had massive flooding in our area this past weekend. I'd love to think we won't get any more snow but I know better.

    Your #7 was good : )

  4. I love the look of your blog! And I completely agree that you can't add letters!

  5. #7 was great! My BIL memorized pi to something like 100 digits after the decimal when he was in high school.

    My Irish name had the same quote.

  6. great answers I love everyones Irish name and that quote must have been on everyones what is that about :-) how funny

  7. LOVE your answers! I have to agree with conquering the teen years and no, I wouldn't go back either. Now I'm excited when each of my children conquers those years. Have a great day!


  8. Just stopped by on the hop. I enjoyed your answers. I'd never thought about taking pictures for granted, but you are so right--I love my pictures that sit on shelves and line the hall walls...

  9. Not too many of us would want to repeat the teen years. Ugh.
    Love the green family photo idea!
    But can you find really, really GOOD chocolate at your store? :-)
    Have had fun with everyone's Irish names. At least I can pronounce yours (I think). :-)

  10. LOL Sara...I love that you have been busy tending to your FB farm. I get on the facebook farm every day after work because it is mind-numbing and takes my thoughts away from sick patients!

    You're hilarious, as always

  11. I'm also careful in graveyards, but I thought that was a form of respect! Loved your answers!

    Happy St. Patrick's Day. I live in flip flops too.
