Wednesday Hodgepodge

Wednesday already....the week is going too fast. But it means that its time to From This Side of the Pond for this weeks Hodgepodge

1. Do you wear your heart on your sleeve, or keep your emotions tucked in tight?
I'm a very open person, very honest, very trusting and I feel things very deeply. Ask me anything ...I will always answer. Sometimes I feel I should keep things inside...then maybe I wouldn't get so hurt

2. How did you meet your closest friend?
My best friend is MrD, but my closest friend...and longest is Mrs R. I met Mrs R on our first day of school an incredible 48 years ago. We have been through a lot...and she is always there for me. I can honestly say we have never had a disagreement. I have to share this photo with you...and she will probably kill me..Its of me and her..Christmas the joke compares of a Mr and Mrs competition for the Old Age Pensioners at the village Christmas party...I was the glamourous assistant. It was great fun...and fun is how I would describe our friendship.
3.  Pink lemonade, grilled salmon, cotton candy, pink grapefruit, a strawberry milkshake, or raspberry sorbet...of the pink foods listed, which one is your favorite? Least favorite? Which one have you most recently consumed?
Ok...this is my kind of and food in the same sentence! My least favourite is easy..I.m not a grapefruit all! Most recently lemonade. I had my first ever last week at the local Grill. It was quite nice. I love salmon...I could eat it til it comes out of my ears. favourite has to be the milk shake. I had one when we were in Vegas..and it had big chunks of fresh strawberries in it......absolutely scrummy !

4. When were you last 'tickled pink' over something? Explain.
Every time I Skype my little grandson. He gets so excited its funny but melts my heart

5. Are you a fan of television talk shows? Daytime, nighttime, or both? What's your favorite?
I'm afraid I don't watch much daytime tv, but years ago I did watch 'Oprah'.These days I just watch Fox News in the evening with MrD so I guess whoever is on there

6. When was the last time you wanted to ask a question, but felt too foolish to do so?
Hmmm ..I didn't think any question was stupid. But on the other hand, all the time..I get these terrible 'blond moments' when my brain cells cease to work

7. My favorite __________________right now is _________________.
My favourite fruit right now are apples...Im eating so many Im going to look like one! Oh...and I love dipping them in strawberry yogurt

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
Love and Hugs

  1. Nice to meet you today through the Hodgepodge. I love apples too, especially dipped in peanut butter. That is a great quote. I remember when I met my husband, thinking we'd just be friends and maybe meet someone through him. I wasn't long before I realized he was the ONE!

  2. Hello Phoebe. I enjoyed your answers...especially your favorite pink food. Milkshakes would have been my answer also! :)

    I love getting to know more about you through your answers to these questions. xo

  3. I'm a fan of apples too. My favorite is Cortlands with extra sharp cheddar cheese. I so identify with your Random Thought. It makes marriage so much more enjoyable. Nice blog page.

  4. I sometimes dip my apple in peanut butter, but strawberry yogurt sounds good too. I'll have to give that a try. Have a great day!

  5. I just love your photo..always enjoy your answers, Blessings
