wednesday hodgepodge

1. When the children of today grow up, what do you think they'll say about this period in time? What do you most hope they remember?

I am afraid of what children of today think. Anxiously waiting to read responses of others!

2. National Teacher's Day is celebrated in the US of A on the first Tuesday in May, this year May 7th...share how a particular teacher positively impacted you. 

A teacher that impacted me was my World History teacher, and he also taught Driver's Ed.  I remember just talking with him about his favorite type of music.  He was strict but fair.  His classroom was organized and he didn't tolerate any nonsense.  Years later, I taught English across the hall from him.  There was a few times, when I caught myself listening to him lecture and thinking how many times he had to call a student down-this wouldn't have happened in my day.  

3. What's a dish your mama made, that if set in front of you today would whisk you right back to childhood?                                                                         

Brown sugar pies!

4. Mother May I was a game we played when I was growing pieces, parts, or plugs required. What games from childhood do you remember loving that were also pieces, parts, and plug-free?

Playing kick-the can underneath the street light or playing red light, green light.

5. Besides your own mother, tell us about a woman who influenced you as a child?

My precious grandmother (on my father's side).  She was rather large and I use to laugh hearing my grandfather ask her if a tow truck was needed to get her out of a vehicle.  My grandmother was a devoted Christian woman.  My oldest daughter has had 2 open heart surgeries, and my grandmother would cry and pray with me over the phone.  I remember the second heart surgery daughter had-we were in Boston-the surgeon came in and said the surgery was needed or daughter would die within one year, but there was a 90% chance she would die on the operating table.  I had to call my grandmother-and she prayed with me on the phone and I cried.  She was something special-who influenced me more than my mother.  

6. Mamma Mia! What's the best play or musical you've ever seen? 

It has been so long since I have attended a play or musical-can't remember.

7. What are three smells that make you feel nostalgic?

country ham baking at Christmas, garden dirt, and burning leaves--all of these make me remember my childhood

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
A busy weekend is ahead!


  1. Your grandma sounds like a special lady. Everyone needs a grandmother like that. My maternal grandmother was that for me. We always said her prayers went straight to God's ear : ) I hope I'm that kind of grandma one day.

  2. Brown Sugar pies is a first for me! What were they made of...pure brown sugar? How interesting!

  3. I've never heard of brown sugar pies. You should share what they are, sounds interesting. I totally forgot about red light, green light! We played that one too. Have a great day!

  4. I've never heard of brown sugar pies but it certainly sounds like it would be tasty.

  5. Is a brown sugar pie like a a butter tart on a large scale?

  6. I'm going to have to Google Brown Sugar Pie! Yes we played outside under the street light too. Enjoy your week.

  7. Ooo! I LOVE the smell of ham cooking :) Hope you have a great weekend!!
