April Fool's Hodgepodge


Joyce came up with some more great questions for this week.  I can't believe March is already (almost) over!

1. April rolls in at the end of this week and in celebration of that infamous date (April 1st) answer this question-What is something foolish you've done? 
1?  You only want 1 thing?  I'll go with this:  There is a bridge in the small town that everybody paints.  

During our rivalry week when I was a Junior in high school, I went to paint the bridge after band practice.  I used my car key to attempt to open the spraypaint can and it broke off.  Here's the thing:  I wasn't suppose to be at the bridge; I was suppose to go straight home after practice.  What did I tell my daddy?  I told him it broke off when I was trying to unlock the car door.  He didn't question it, but I have a feeling there's no way he believed me.  My daddy is a pretty smart man.

2. With April comes Easter and that classic edible treat known as Peeps...so tell me...what's your favorite way to fix/eat chicken? That wasn't what you were expecting, was it? I 'fooled' you. teehee.
I like chicken just about every way.  I don't know that I have a favorite.
 
3. What's the best museum you've ever visited? Or your favorite? Or the one you'd most like to visit?
The Holocaust Museum in DC.  Mindblowing.  I think that's the best one I've been to.  Although, the Museum of Natural History in NYC was pretty awesome, too.  There are a couple of museums in the big town next to us that are free that I need to explore.
 
4. You know what they say about April showers...what's your preference-a shower or a bath?
Shower.  When we lived in SC I would take bath every now and then, just to soak.  I've never even taken a bath in our current house.  Maybe after we get the tub refinished.
 
5. "Absence makes the heart grow fonder"...fact or fiction? Why?
I think it depends.  If it's true love and not just an infatuation, I think it does.  When CH was at Army Schools, it definitely made the heart grow fonder.  However, there have been a couple of guys that I dated that would make me think it's fiction.

6. What's your favorite product made/grown in your home state/province?
Hmmmmm.....Jack Daniels?  Just kidding, I don't drink the stuff.  I would've said Saturn cars, but they aren't making those here anymore, and I don't drive a Saturn anymore.  Here's my final answer:
 Of course it was going to be something that has to do with food!  CH is convinced that the oatmeal pies are keeping his cholesterol down!  My all time favorite is the Swiss Roll, but this new one is catching up:
 

7. What is going on in the world today that affects you the most?
All this stuff going on in the Middle East causing the gas prices to sky-rocket.  Ridiculous.  We don't even get most of our oil from there, so why in the world are the prices so high?  I couldn't believe how much it cost me to fill up my tank the other day.  Craziness...just pure craziness.
 
8. Insert your own random thought here.
This isn't a great picture, but this is what I saw yesterday afternoon when I took the girls out:
  I just happened to look up and see it.  I don't know if  it's really called a rainbow or something else, but it was pretty cool.
 
To see how everybody else answered or to join in and link up, go visit Joyce.

  2. The Holocaust Museum is an amazing exhibit...disturbing and moving all at the same time.

    Little Debbie Cakes-haven't had one in ages...no one told me they help lower cholesterol : )

  3. Beautiful picture!

    There is a Holocaust Museum in Miami Beach that DH & I contemplated visiting when we were in Miami Beach last week. I was afraid that it would be too upsetting, so we passed. I wish now that we had gone anyway.

  5. I would like to see the Holocaust Museum. When I was a history major--way back when--World War II and the Holocaust were my major interest.
    That is an awesome picture of the sun dog I think.

  6. That picture is AMAZING!!

    Sure wish I'd thought of the Holocaust Museum. I would absolutely love to visit it. My hero, and the person I want to meet in heaven, is Corrie ten Boom. I've read The Hiding Place more times than I can count. I cannot imagine how moving that museum must be.

  7. Beautiful picture.
    #1 made me laugh. I'm sure there were times I told my parents things that I thought they believed but they really knew the truth.

  8. Must try Banana Pudding Rolls. Sounds like a good substitute for my beloved banana cream pie!

  9. Yeah...gas prices have REALLY affected my life in CA...$4.25 a gallon...sheesh. I also choose those oatmeal cookies becuase they are "healthier"...tee hee.

  13. I love `Little Debbie Cakes`.
    It's been a while since I've had them.
    I wonder what the `Banana Pudding Rolls` taste like.

  14. How great to live in the state of "Little Debbie Cakes"! I haven't seen the banana pudding ones yet!

    My foolish moment involved painting, too.

    I agree with you about oil...what in the world is up with that???

  15. I like that picture!! I'm sure your dad did know too that the key didn't break in the lock, but because you got home safe and sound, I'm thinking he just gave you a freebie :)

    I'm with you about gas prices, ridiculous, but what can we do? Except of course cut down driving as much as we can :)

    betty

  17. I'm pretty sure that was a rainbow! Beautiful and just for you! I didn't know you lived in the state of Little Debbie. I might have visited you sooner. I'm a Nutty Bar from the fridge kinda gal unless you wave a Star Crunch in front of my face. :)
