Wednesdays are very busy for me, so I'm "jumping the gun" a bit (hey, that goes with one of this week's questions) and getting my list posted today.
This will be "THE LAST FEBRUARY" 'RANDOM DOZEN'...JOINING LIDDIE answering some VERY random questions, indeed...



1. Have you ever fired a gun or shot a bow and arrow?

My learning curve: a bow @19, a pistol & rifle @ 23, and a 4-ft blow gun @ 33

Psalm 38:1 “Take a deep breath, God; calm down— don't be so hasty with your punishing rod. Your sharp-pointed arrows of rebuke draw blood; my backside smarts from your caning.”

2. Do you know where your childhood best friends are?

I know where they are, chat on FB but rarely get to see them L

Amos 5:14 “Seek good and not evil— and live! You talk about God, the God-of-the-Angel-Armies, being your best friend. Well, live like it, and maybe it will happen.

3. Do you usually arrive early, late, or on time?

Usually I’m on time; though since hormonal struggles loom I don’t fret so much about it.

4. Are you more of a New York or California type?

Speaking from a weather perspective: love me some southern California specifically in the OC…but New York coffee and fresh bagels can’t be beat…there I go, being indecisive again.

5. Do you have a special ring tone?

Even though my ringer is on silent A LOT b/c I’m one who REALLY doesn’t want to interrupt church, or a meeting, or a personal conversation …when I’m out and about shopping or away from home expecting updates from my teenager, it’s turned up to HIGH…giving a unique opportunity to enjoy music, receive a call and WITNESS… so mine is:

the chorus of TAKE IT ALL by Hillsong United…

“Jesus, we're living for Your name,
We'll never be ashamed of you
Woah oh oh
Our praise,And all we are today
Take, take, take, it all

Take, take, take, it all!”

6. What is your favorite type of chip?

Cheddar Soy Crisps then KETTLE COOKED Cape Cod Sea Salt and Cracked Pepper…you actually didn’t think I could choose JUST ONE, did you?

7. Best comedy you've ever seen is ....

Anita Renfroe @ Women of Faith…here’s a sample (YOU RAISE ME UP...below questions)

8. Have you ever cut your own hair? To quote Dr. Phil, "How'd that work for ya?"

Many times I’ve cut things on my own: the grass, the hours DD can stay out on a date, the cheese when there were no dairy products in sight, hubby’s hairline on the back of his neck, and MY hair…with my short style I can trim my front angles and get an extra 3 weeks before a formal cut…helps a girl’s pocketbook, a little

9. If you were going to have an extreme makeover--your house or your person?

Not that my hair, face, body, teeth, skin, and nails don’t need one, but hubs and I have trouble finding central ground on this one--a designer’s opinion would be a great way to go

10. Are you allergic to anything?

Used to be allergic to walnuts, yet recently discovered it has disappeared—made me happy! “Dust” appears to be my biggest nose enemy by encroaching on me no matter HOW MUCH I clean, wipe, dust and HEPA vacuum…it WON’T go away even though I try to make it disappear.

11. Why is it so hard to change?

Many changes are hard, yep, next to ‘ne’r gonna happen’: CHANGING ketchups is out-of-the-question in THIS house, hubs requires HEINZ; CHANGING the toilet paper, paper towels, and trash bags is so challenging only the most-qualified person in the house can EVER seem to get it done (what? Me, complain?); CHANGING my $20 bill is next to impossible…DD borrows them quite often and their remnants rarely make it back into my clutch (does everything cost $20 now?)

Yet, CHANGING my clothes happens more now than ever before…hot flashes bring on ALL types of new reactions and conditions (‘nuff said, I’ll let your imagination fill in these blanks)

12. Dedicated to February love: CS Lewis said, "To love is to be vulnerable." Please share one example or share any thought you'd like about this topic.

Shared joy is a DOUBLE joy; shared sorrow is HALF a sorrow.
