Summer Hodgepodge

Well, thanks to Beth for posting this late this afternoon.  She is as big a meme junkie as I am so now I'm going to have to do it, too.

1. Summer's here-whoohoo! What's your favorite sight, sound, AND smell associated with summer?
~ There are so many!  I love the beach, early morning when the neighborhood's just waking up....but I'm going to have to say my favorite combination of sight, sound and smell in the summer happens in that first moment when you open the car door at the county fair.  Nothing in the world like it.

2. Fireflies or lightning bugs...what are they called in your neck of the woods?
~ Lightning bugs.  Most people around here that are my age also knew them as curfew up until our teen years.  It was pretty common to have to be back in your own yard by the time the lightning bugs came out.

3. What is something in the past week that reminded you of your childhood?
~ Splashing in puddles with my granddaughter.  Hardly anyone had swimming pools when I was a kid so any water would do when it got hot enough.

4. Define 'the good life'.
~ Having faith in something, having "enough", being content and comfortable in your skin and life.

5. Tell us what we'd see if you took a snapshot of your desk/workspace.
This is it.  Anyone know how to make Blogger post the picture right?

6. Peaches or watermelon? Yes, you have to choose.
~ I love ice cold watermelon with a bit of salt, but there is something about a sweet, juicy peach.

7. Ever been skinny dippin'? Is that too much for the Wednesday Hodgepodge? Rest assured we won't need details...unless of course you feel you must but keep in mind this is a family friendly blog so keep it G rated please.
~ I'll just say yes and leave it at that. 

8. Insert your own random thought here.
~ Plan B had better be good.

Plan B? And I'm with Ellie on the salt. YUCK!

salt-yum! But I eat it plain these days since I try to watch my salt intake. Getting older is not for the faint of heart!

The only thing I know about blogger and pictures is I need my picture to be exactly right/edited/direction, etc before I upload it. Once its uploaded I can't do anything with it. Of course I'm sure I'm not the one to be giving advice on this subject : )

Glad you played along today-welcome to the Hodgepodge!

Hi Joyce! Thanks for visiting me. :) I only put a dash of salt on the watermelon these days. When I was younger I put a LOT on. I don't know the answer with the pictures and Blogger. It used to be just fine then all of sudden it started taking all my vertical pictures and rolling them onto their sides. No idea....
