Can You Whistle

I totally can't whistle! It's a very sad story. I've tried and tried to learn and just can't do it. I can't skip and I can't whistle. Very untalented! I do make a great sound like a whistle. I can Woot Whoo with the best of them!!!!

Can you whistle?

Who Has Been Locked Out

**********This is a Pay Per Post Ad**********

I've locked myself out of my house on several occasions. Once I had to crawl in a window. NO fun there! I've also been known to store keys all over the place for just such an occasion but that is also a pain. What I really need is a biometric door lock . That is a very super cool high tech finger print door lock! How amazing is that. You see those in movies all the time but I had no idea that people could actually get them. But you can.

I checked them out and found my favorite one. Here is the picture of it.
I can't afford it obviously but they aren't nearly as expensive as I thought something like that would be. I'm saving my pennies but if I had the extra money I think it would be a really neat thing to have. You would never have to worry about having your key. But most importantly you would never have to worry about someone else having your keys.

That's what is creepy to me. If you forget or lose your keys somewhere you pretty much have to get new locks if you don't want to be worried forever that someone is gonna come in your house. With this you wouldn't have to worry. All you need is your fingerprint. Pretty handy! So if you want a fancy hi tech biometric door lock go check them out.

Have You Had Any Winter Weather Yet?

Today was the first day of any real winter weather here. We got a lot of sleet! And it's supposed to snow tonight. So I'm sure the roads will be great tomorrow. I don't mind the winter weather. Well I mind it when I'm driving but that's the only time. The snow and cold is okay with me. My dog Lena however is not a fan of winter. Today she didn't want to go outside. Then after she made the pee pee she started jumping on the patio door trying to open it. She really didn't want to stay out there! I guess sleet is no friend to the puppies...

So have you had any winter weather yet?

Who Has A Disclosure Policy

I now have a disclosure policy. I think that it is important that I am straight forward with my readers about things on my blog. I wouldn't want anyone to feel like I was trying to trick them or be sneaky about something. So I've decided to create a disclosure policy. In the future you will see posts from me about different blogs, services, or products. I will be paid for some of those posts. Any posts that I will receive payment for will be clearly identified. If you want to read them you can and if not you can skip them. It's your call. But I'll be clear upfront. This disclosure policy was really easy to create and I feel it is pretty clear about what I will and will not do.

How Do You Relax

My favorite way to relax is to spend time working in my flower beds if it is nice outside. If it's this time of year and the flower beds are done then I relax by reading a good book or watching a movie.

How do you relax?

What Is Your Favorite Smell

My favorite smell is rain! I love the fresh clean smell. I have a nose for rain too. I swear I can smell it a day away. I can just smell the rain coming in. I love that. I also really like the smell of clean sheets. I love getting in the bed when the sheets have that crisp clean smell. What would be perfect is clean sheets on a rainy day! That would be a little bit of heaven for me!

What is your favorite smell?

Do You Have A Real Christmas Tree

I've always had real Christmas trees. I love them. I love the hunt for the right tree, I love the way they look, I love the way they smell. I just love real trees! However for the first time ever I have a fake tree this year. It's a little sad to me. While it is very pretty it's just not the same. But I just knew that my little dog Lena would cause big problems with a real tree. So fake it is!

Do you have a real Christmas tree?

Who Was Your Neighbor Growing Up

My coolest neighbors growing up were Grandma and Grandpa Marks as I called them. They weren't really my grandparents but they looked like grandparents to that's what I called them and they loved it. They were great neighbors. I would go over to visit and they of course gave me too much candy! Grandpa Marks was quite the photographer and he taught me so much about cameras! I love that. Every once in awhile I see old cameras like his at antique stores. Someday I'm gonna get one to remember him by. Grandma Marks would have tea parties with me and she always let me help her wrap her Christmas gifts which was a blast for me. I loved wrapping. They were really great people and amazing neighbors. I lucked out.

Who were your neighbors growing up?

Do You Eat Seafood

I do eat seafood. However, I'm pretty dang picky about it. My Dad lived in Boston for awhile and I got spoiled on good seafood. You can get awesome seafood cheap on the wharf. Way better than anything you would pay a small fortune for at a restaurant here. So now that I'm a seafood brat I can't stand places like Red Lobster. It's overpriced and not that good in my opinion.

So do you eat seafood?

Where Do You Never Want To Visit Again

I never ever ever want to visit Yuma Arizona again! I know that some of my readers are from Yuma. Semper Fi! I love the Marines but I don't love Arizona. It's way hot there. And I don't care that it is a dry heat. There is no comfort in dry when it is 115 degrees. And the sand... YUCK! And the lack of grass makes me sad. I need color... Not sand... So that is the place I never want to visit again...

Where do you never want to visit again?

Do You Watch Nip/Tuck

Okay my sister and I have recently started watching Nip/Tuck. We used to watch it every once in awhile. But this season we have been watching every episode. I don't know why we like it. In fact sometimes I think we are more horrified by it and somehow we just get hooked in. It's just an odd show... I like it and I hate it. Go figure.

So do you watch Nip/Tuck?

Can You Speak More Than One Language

I can't speak more than one language. I have attempted to learn German and Spanish. I took German for one year in high school and Spanish for two. I actually know more German than I do Spanish. I try really hard to learn languages but I am really not good at it. However, I am determined to learn Spanish before I'm 50! That is my goal. I would really like to be able to speak Spanish.

So can you speak more than one language?

What Is Your Nickname

Are You A Good Singer

No I'm not a good singer! In fact I can't sing at all! Well actually I can sing but I should not ever ever sing. The only place I do sing is church and the only reason I do that is because I know God will forgive my sorry voice. I do on occasion accidentally sing along to the radio when others are present. But it never lasts long, usually someone tells me to shut up or they throw something at me.

So are you a good singer?

What Is The Best Practical Joke You Have Ever Played On Someone

The best practical joke I've ever played was when I totally got Darby's mom Donna. She was the Administrative Assistant at our office. So I went to the office late one night and completely covered her desk in post-it-notes. I mean everything was covered, the phone, the desk, the chair, the computer. You could only see yellow post-its! It was pretty funny!

So what is the best practical joke you have ever played on someone?

Also tomorrow is Sunday so leave your questions for me in the comments section and I'll answer them!

Would You Go Skinny Dipping

I would totally go skinny dipping depending on who I was dipping with! In fact I've done it before I'm sure I'll do it again. That's why I would love to have my own pool. Then i could skinny dip anytime I wanted. That time I did it at the rec center I got in BIG trouble. I guess that's not allowed or something... I don't understand that....

So would you go skinny dipping?

What Is The First Paragraph On The 57th Page Of The Book You are Reading

I am reading the book 90 Minutes in Heaven written by Don Piper. The first paragraph on the 57th page of this book reads....

"On the night I entered Hermann Trauma Center, I was in surgery for eleven hours. During that operation, I had the broken bone in my right leg set. My left forearm had to be stabilized because two inches of each bone were missing. My left leg was put into traction because four and a half inches of femur were missing. During the operation, an air tube was mistakenly inserted into my stomach. This caused my stomach to inflate and my lungs to deflate. It would be several days before they discovered this was the cause of swelling in my stomach. Further complicating my breathing, I was unable to be elevated, and I developed pneumonia. I nearly died a second time. "

It's a pretty good book. You ought to check it out.

So what is the first paragraph on the 57th page of the book you are reading?

What Are You Doing For Thanksgiving

This question comes courtesy of Debbie. Debbie is my sister-in-law Amanda's mom. What is very funny about this question is that I'm actually spending Thanksgiving with Debbie. I guess Amanda forgot to tell her that Heather and I are coming to Indiana for Turkey Day.

We are actually going to be at Shawn and Amanda's house Tuesday-Thursday for the holiday. Then we are heading to Tulsa for Thanksgiving with my mom's family. So we will be spending quite a bit of time on the road but we are looking forward to seeing everyone!

What are you doing for Thanksgiving?

Have You Started Christmas Shopping Yet?

I have started Christmas shopping. In fact I am pretty much done Christmas shopping. I have a few little things to pick up yet but for the most part I'm done. I hate shopping when it's all crowded and I hate being broke. So I try to spread the spending out.

So have you started Christmas shopping yet?

Would You Agree To An Arranged Marriage?

I would totally agree to an arranged marriage. In fact I think my family and friends need to find the guy, interview him, interrogate him, do whatever they want, plan the wedding, pick my outfit, and I'll just show up! I'm so fed up with this "dating" crap! I'm fed up with trying to meet people and make "connections". It's CRAP! So please please please someone arrange the marriage.

Would you agree to an arranged marriage?
