Falling Into the Hodgepodge

Welcome to Wednesday Hodgepodge #478.  Fall on over to Joyce's blog HERE to join other bloggers in answering the following questions.

1.  Volume 478.  Sounds like a lot.  Where were you in 1978?  If you weren't born where were you in 2008?

I was living in a small town in Northeast Louisiana with a husband of 13 years, a son who had just turned 9, and a daughter who was 7.  We were as busy as most other growing families at that time with church activities, school and supporting the kids varied interests.  It was a good time.

2.  Raise your hand if you remember records playing at a speed of 78 rpm?  What's a topic that when it comes up you 'sound like a broken record'?

It probably has something to do with grandkids and great grand ones.  How long do you?

3.  What's the last thing you recorded in some way?

I haven't done a vocal recording or a video in a while, but I am responsible for record keeping for our Homeowners Association.  I spent a big part of last week getting all the dues payment records in order for this week's board meeting.

4.  Thursday is the first day of fall (in the northern hemisphere).  How do you feel about the changing seasons?  Something you're looking forward to this fall?

This is pretty much how I feel about fall.  I love everything about the season from the colors in nature to the color of my clothes.  It is about the only season I actually decorate my house for.  I love the cool weather, the early morning walks and water workouts before it gets too cold.  Sadly, we don't see a lot of color change in Texas.

Something I'm looking forward to this fall?  We are taking a road trip up to Northeast Arkansas to spend a few days in a friend's B&B in mid October.  It should be gorgeous and cool.  Can't wait.

5.  In what way (or ways) are you like the apple that didn't 'fall far from the tree'?

My mother appreciated all things lovely and to the best of her ability passed that on to me.  Our dad loved music and in that respect, I definitely don't fall from the tree.

6.  Insert your own random thought here.
