Way Back When-sday Hodgepodge

Hello, welcome to the Wednesday Hodgepodge! Head over to Joyce’s and join us, it’s a lot of fun!

1. Do you play games of luck/chance for money? Have you ever played bingo for money? Visited a casino?  Placed a bet on a horse? Bought a lottery ticket?

 I am going to say that I normally do not. I won’t say I have never played Bingo on a cruise or a campground, but I am fairly certain I never won much, if any. I have been to the casino a couple of times, years ago, and I seem to remember playing until my $20 was gone. I have don’t think I have ever bet on a horse and I know I have never bought a lottery ticket. I don’t think I got the gambling gene.
2.  Will you be preparing and/or dining on the traditional Corned Beef and Cabbage meal this St. Patrick’s Day? Mashed-baked-hash browned-french fried…your favorite way to have potatoes?

Most likely not, although every now and then Honey gets a hankering for some corned beef. You don’t have to twist my tail very hard to get me to eat any kind of potato. Maybe mashed is my favorite though.

3. What’s the last thing you felt ‘green with envy’ over?
Envy seems like a dark, sinister word. I don’t think I envy anything. I might jokingly say I covet something, but it just means I like it. Without wishing anything hateful on anyone, I guess I would envy someone with big eyes.

4.  What’s at the end of your rainbow?

5. March 12th marks the anniversary of the death of Anne Frank (June 12, 1929-March, 1945).  Anne’s diary detailing her time spent hiding from the Nazi’s during the war ranks as one of the best selling books of all time.  Besides your blog, do you keep any sort of diary or journal?  Was this a habit you developed as a child or is journaling something new for you?

 Except for this blob, the only other thing that has come close to journaling has been writing in our children’s baby books. I really tried hard to write down all of those precious little tidbits and milestones that get fuzzy as the years go on.  Especially who did or said what! I guess scrapbooking has sort of been a little like journaling, but I am so far behind and spotty that I can’t even journal effectively because I can’t remember anymore!!
6. What’s an item in your home or closet that contains every color of the rainbow?

That’s a tough one. I am not that colorful and certainly not rainbow colorful. Probably what comes close is all of my embroidery floss.

7.  Write a limerick with you as the subject.  You can do it!!  Just remember this is a family friendly blog…don’t make me get out my wooden spoon.
I am Capri K from The Mitten.

At the computer this morning I’m sittin’.

Just adding my voice

to the Hodgepodge with Joyce,

and then on the road I’ll be gittin’!

8.  Insert your own random thought here.

Here is the Way Back When-sday part of the post. When we were in Florida last week visiting my Aunt Ava and Uncle Frank, my Aunt Ava gave me this.

She had been hanging onto it for almost 50 years!!!

There’s little 2 year old Capri K on the left with her buddies Kathleen and Eileen Fitzpatrick. I remember these girls, they lived down the street from my Grandma and Grandpa Davidson. I played with them a lot because we spent quite a bit of time at my grandparents house. I wonder if Mrs. Fitzpatrick spent all $3 of that prize money in one place??!!

    LOVE YOUR LIMERICK, LASSIE! So glad to have you back to give me a laugh! Did I ever mention that I visited Ann Frank’s house in Amsterdam?

    Love the limerick and photos can be journals as well. A picture is worth a thousand words.
