Wednesday Hodgepodge

1. On a scale of 1-10, how would you rate your summer so far? Why?
(1=eh and 10=best summer ever)

A  5 -this not certainly being the best one ever-not very close.  A lot of unforseen circumstances creeping up.  On the other hand, not the worst one. 

2. July 26th is National Aunts and Uncles Day. Did you have many aunts and uncles growing up? Were you especially close to any one or maybe all of them? Are you an aunt? (or uncle for the men who join here on Wednesdays) Share a favorite memory relating to one of your own aunts or uncles or relating to a niece or nephew who call you Aunt (or Uncle).

Growing up I would go back to Baltimore and spend the summer with my grandmother, my aunt and my uncle.  I have a special aunt and uncle...While spending the summer with both of them I have so many fond memories....baking candy to sent my uncle who was in Vietnam, going to work with my aunt (secretary at the VA Hospital in Fort Howard, Maryland).  I can remember not wanting to go come back home to…

2. July 14th is National Tape Measure Day...the device was patented on this date in 1868. When did you last use a tape measure? Do you always know where to find one in your house? Tell us one way in which you feel blessed 'beyond measure'.

Red, white, blue-wednesday hodgepodge

1. How did you welcome the month of July, and tell us one fun thing you did to celebrate the 4th. (or the weekend for any non-USA residents playing along today)
I did a little cleaning to welcome July.  On the 4th, we grilled out and watched some neighbors set off fireworks. On July 3rd, we went to listen to a band play 60's, 70's, and 80's music--Loved this group.  Later when the band finished playing, I watched the most spectacular fireworks show ever!
2. Right now..what's your favorite red thing? white thing? blue thing? red shorts
