Wednesday Hodgepodge

From this Side of the Pond

1. "A daughter's a daughter all her life, but a son's a son til he takes a wife." What say you? Elaborate.

I had two daughers but my hub had avery close relationship to his mother (way more than I was with my mom..ahem) and his mother was involved in our daughter's lives.  My hub was still a son when he and I was married. I personally don't know any man that has quit being a son or a daughter quit being a daughter because of marriage. 

I have 5 beautiful grandsons...THREE are my daughters and TWO (I never get to see) are from my step-son. The idea that my daughter will have to give her sons away when they marry is not the case, but my daughter will have to realize her sons have a change of focus now.

2. Something you've seen recently that was 'cuter than a June bug'

3. 'You can't buy happiness, but you can buy ice cream and that's pretty much the same thing.' Agree or disagree? Last time you had a serving of happiness ice cream?  Dish-cone-milkshake-sundae...which one do you choose? 

Money can't buy happiness, and ice cream can make one happy, and money can buy ice cream!

It has been awhile since I had ice cream; I believe it was last year while in Tybee.  I am not a huge ice cream fan,but I prefer mint chocolate chip in a waffle cone.

4. What is one way/area in which you're currently 'swimming against the tide'? 

Groundhogs!!!  I planted a garden this year; the first time in many, many years.  The groundhogs have eaten my lettuce and hot pepper plants!!  I have called the game warden....NOTHING!!  AND I was told I couln't shoot them since I live in the town limits.  A friend is bringing me a trap this afternoon, so we will see.  They are baby groundhogs so the mother must have left.  I was afraid to put poison out since I have a cat.

5. Three things you're looking forward to this summer?

1. Spending time with grandsons and boat rides.

2. Reading

3. Maybe a trip...who knows...

6. Insert your own random thought here. 


  1. I love the photo. Everyone looks so happy. I hope you enjoy your summer.

  2. OMG cracking up at the coffee quote. Slow clap!

  3. We have a chipmunk problem here and they have tortured my potted plants. And most recently a deer nibbled one of my hydrangeas down to the nubs. Grrrr....I think there are deterrents that are not poison but that help. Ask at the garden center. Have a happy summer!

  4. Wow! The groundhogs ate the hot peppers or just the leaves of the plants? I wonder if it burned their mouths!!

  5. Those littles sitting in the boat are so cute!! Oh sorry about those groundhogs. Your random thoughts are making me chuckle!

  6. Loved your answers and that first quote is awesome.
