Another Wednesday, another Hodgepodge. Join us on Joyce's blog HERE.
It truly can be. In these two pictures for instance.
Whether or not a picture represents or misrepresents truth, it still tells a story.
2. Have you ever driven any part of the Pacific Coast Highway? If so what was your favorite stop? If not, is this sort of trip on your bucket list?
San Jose: You do not want to miss seeing the crazy and fascinating Winchester Mystery House.
San Luis Obispo: Also known as Pismo Beach, there is a lot to do here, but I will just highlight some of the things we did. Dick had lived here for six months right out of high school and we visited a distant cousin he had lived with and had not seen in over 50 years. This was the highlight of the whole trip. As part of her tour, we had lunch at an outdoor restaurant on Moro Bay, where we could watch the boats and seals. She told us that sometimes the barges get so loaded with seals, that they sink. I can see how this would happen. We also visited the gaudy Madonna Inn and sampled some of their renowned cakes.
This was our last stop on the Pacific Coastline before going back north on an inland passage. I can honestly say this was one of the best trips we have taken and would do it again in a minute.
3. How do the changing seasons affect you? As the seasons change do you find yourself looking more forward or backward? Which season-season transition bothers you most? Why do you suppose that is?
The changes into Fall are my favorite and invigorate me. We happen to be getting a foretaste today with a wonderful 79 degrees.
As I get older, I am probably looking back a little more than I used to because I am old enough to have accumulated memories and experiences worth reliving. But, I am also old enough to look forward with anticipation knowing this is not my home and it will be so much better when I get there.
I do not handle the time change in the spring well. I love fall and winter and dread the coming summer heat. Perhaps this is why I struggle with that transition.
4. It's your birthday and you get to pick the dinner menu. What are we having? Do you ever lie about your age?
I don't really care what is on the menu as long as I have some German Chocolate Cake.
No, I am proud of every one of my almost 73 years!
5. What's a life lesson you've learned recently?
That God is not in my dress rehearsals. I am so good at rehearsing what if's and I am so grateful to have learned this lesson, but wish it had come much, much earlier.
6. Insert your own random thought here.
This past weekend, we traveled to Dallas to see our youngest granddaughter perform in a play.
All of the kids did an amazing job and we are so proud of our little actress.
