Random Dozen ~ Pft

1. Please share one memory of your high school graduation. Pics would be great!
I didn’t get to walk. There was a glitch, records were lost. A test needed to be retaken. Despite the fact that I was a straight A student the vice-principal forbid me to walk. After graduation — AFTER — the principal apologized. Pft.

2. What is one “emergency use” item you keep in your vehicle at all times?
Before Amoeba, a plastic box with tools and jumper cables. Now, tons of trumpets. Pft.

3. In your region, do you celebrate graduation open houses? Addendum: (If so,) how many open houses/bridal showers/weddings are on your upcoming events calendar?
Pft. Beyond the age of graduation. None.

4. Tell me one truth you believe about motherhood.
It isn’t for everybody.

5. What was the last thing you broke?
My fingernail. Pft

6. On average, how many pieces of junk mail do you receive daily?
Pft. Mail or email? Dozens.

7. Do you like to shop by catalog?
Yes. Would you like an Avon book?

8. Is lawn maintenance at your house a “his job,” a “her job” or “his/her job” or “that’s why we have teenagers” job?
Mostly “his” but “she” is trying to do a couple of things.  (Stuff keeps interfering!)

9. Which room would you like to redecorate in your home?
We are currently (Wednesday) on a shopping expedition for living room furniture.

10. Do you read a newspaper regularly, or do you read most of your news on line?
News? Pft. Scandal sheets you mean. Online, such as it is.

11. Do you believe everything happens for a reason?
Within reason. 😉

12. Are you more worried about doing things right, or doing the right things?


  1. My emergency item would definitely be baby wipes – even though my kids are long past the diaper stage you never know when you’ll need them, and chances are that if you do, it will be an emergency LOL.

    My photography is now available for purchase – visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  2. Again these questionings, lol ! I feel like in a police station ! I rarely shop online, I only did it once for a bathing costume !

  3. You NAILED it..
    Actually I love Avon too..
    well done, Quilly!
    I like you Within reason…indeed!
    Have you a great Wednesday!

  4. My emergency item is…hand cream and chap stick. I am lost without them. Never shop by catalog, partly because I love to go shopping 8)

    1. Betty — no point in doing it if one isn’t going to do it right — on the other hand, no point in doing it right if it’s the wrong thing to do …..

  5. Quilly ~ Smart-Ass Answers from you?? , did Thom help you with this???

    In all seriousness, I liked your answers, I am just be Facetious {Fancy Word for Smart~Ass}

    1. Melli — we were amazingly efficient with our shopping. We found three couch sets we liked and the questions we asked the sales clerk narrowed it down to one. It will be delivered in two weeks.

  6. You have me using the pft now and I have found that it works. LOL!

    I can’t believe you didn’t get to walk the pomp and circumstance at graduation! That is too much!

    I sure hope we will get to see your NEW LR furniture???

    1. Chuch Lady — don’t tell anybody, but I stole the pft from another blogger long ago. He used it occasionally and I fell in love with it. It is so expressive!

      I walked when I graduated from college — and the new furniture won’t be delivered for two weeks.

  7. I almost did not get to walk at my high school graduation. The senior English teacher withheld my diploma until I rewrote my entire theme paper because I had misspelled the word religion. I was a local pastor’s daughter and she thought it was appalling that I could not spell religion.

    1. Granny Annie — that sounds rather petty — just like the Vice-Principal who was punishing me for dropping out of school for 6 weeks (third semester) and coming back to take the 4th semester and finals and testing out. One final remained to be taken so he marked me ineligible to graduate.

  8. I love that the trumpets are emergency equipment. That makes sense! After all, when Jesus returns, the trumpets will sound, so those of us who have trumpet players around (and their trumpets) will know first! Yippee!

    Hope your day on the mainland is fun!

  9. I do love a meme cleverly twisted.
    I would think jumper cables are handier than trumpets in most vehicular emergencies, but I guess I’m just a traditionalist.

  10. 1. the lights went out and we all took the mortar boards off and fanned our selves.
    6. all of them.
    7. is online a catalog? then yes.
    9. NONE of them.
    10. everyday. I’m masochistic.
    11. yes to frustrate me.
    12. yes.

  11. I read The Washington Post every morning. I don’t think I could ever leave the DC area (yes, I’m a snob) because so many of the papers out in the hinterlands are fishwrappers. And no, don’t tell me I can read the paper online. Pft!

    1. Melissa — well, you CAN read the paper online, but the tactile experience is quite different and you won’t be able to smell the ink, which is half of believing.

        1. Tilden — you are a good mommy. Your kids love and respect you. they grew up hardworking and honest. I think you did an amazing job as a widow struggling to make ends meet.
