Friday Fill In #173

1. Where are my summer clothes?
2. If wishes were horses I wouldn’t have any. (Horses are expensive and needy and–in my opinion–kinda stinky.)
3. I’d like to see my house sold!
4. When I was a teen, I thought up this great name for a high school paper column; it was called “Bill’s Psychedelic Etch-A-Sketch Lunchbox.” (I wrote that column for two years. It was “Bill’s” because it was mine; “Psychedelic” ’cause I liked the sound of it; “Etch-A-Sketch” because it was always changing; and “Lunchbox” because it was full of good things.)
5. One of my mother’s favorite sayings was “Good-bye, I love you, be good.” (Either that or “If you’re too sick to go to school, you’re too sick to do anything else.”)
6. I’d have a hard time doing without my before bed snack–even though I know I should give it up.
7. And as for the weekend, tonight I’m looking forward to making supper for my favorite girls, tomorrow my plans include the first lawn mows of the season, and Sunday, I want to take a nap after church and Sunday lunch!


  1. JDaniel4's Mom

    I will have to remember your mom’s saying when JDaniel get older. The one about being sick is priceless. Have a great weekend~

  2. I must know your mother; I seem to say the same thing to my son. We have a saying in our house, though, that he said to my mother when he was three years old being particularly filled with joy over a new toy, “I love you, I’ve got marbles, Good-bye.”

    It made me smile to read your comment about the bleeding heart photograph on my blog. Isn’t it funny how we don’t escape a visual memory? Or, a fragrance for that matter.

  3. Hi thanks for stopping by. I enjoyed reading your answers. My Mom did the “if you’re too sick” thing too. Hope you had a great weekend.
