Wednesday Hodgepodge

From this Side of the Pond

1. Security or freedom? Can you have both? Explain.

I believe one can have freedom while maintaining security.  Such as: a toddler-one gives a toddler freedom to explore but with security close by or growing up our parents gave us freedom but we knew we still were secure with them.

On the other hand, without security can we have freedom?

2. If you could visit any historical American site what would it be? Why?

I have always wanted to visit the Grand Canyon.  I have just heard it was so breath taking.

3. Free as a bird, free reign, be free of, free enterprise, free trip, walk away scot free, free for all...which 'free' phrase can best be applied to your life in recent days or weeks? Explain.

To be free of this black cloud that keeps hanging over us.  Hub's cancer returned last year, February 2017, had surgery at Duke, became allergic to the chemo, started new chemo it worked for 4 months and then his DNA started fighting against the chemo and for the cancer, tumors began growing, started a third chemo in May of 2018, had bronchitis, and now has pneumonia.  I want to be free of this black cloud lurking over us.

4. Something in your frig that's red? Something in your house that's white? Something in your view that's blue?

Beets, white appliances, blue sky.

5. July 27th is National New Jersey Day. Have you ever visited The Garden State? If so where did you go? Are there diners where you live? Have you tried Taylor Pork Roll? Do you like to play Monopoly? Salt water taffy-yay or nay? How do you feel about shopping at the mall? Springsteen, Sinatra, or Bon Jovi-you have to pick one.

Yes, been to New Jersey, went to Secaucus.   No diners where I love. Can't say I have tried Tyler Pork Roll.  I loved playing Monopoly but haven't played in years.  Nay on the salt water taffy.  I love shopping at themall...cause one can rest a spell before continuing on. Definitely Springsteen.

Raise your hand if you know why these add-on questions are appropriate on National NJ Day.

6. Insert your own random thought here.

We have had a lot of rain lately.  It has been raining for over a week but the sun is shining this morning. Sure hope husband can begin to feel better and start kicking cancer again.
Have a Blessed Week!


  1. Tammy,

    I'm sorry to read of your husband's fight with cancer. I hope he's able to beat this thing, so y'all can get on with your lives. I will certainly say a prayer for you both. God is able when we aren't. We're getting quite the rainfall this week. It was raining so, so heavy this morning. The cooler temps feel nice but that won't stay around long. Have a good week! :)

  2. I hope Charlie gets to feeling better! Is he at home or in the hospital. Prayers for you guys.
