1. something I'll never forget about the age I am now: 55 and still alive! thankful for every year

2.A household chore I've never done: 
Change the heater/air conditioning filters

 How have you managed that?  Hubs has never asked me to do it.  I DO know where/how though.

3. Nature shapes our personalities more than nurture? Inborn self is what it is but it certainly gets GREATLY tweaked along the way according to the amount and type of nurturing we receive/give.

4. Friday (February 28th) is 'Something on a Stick Day'...funny because Zoanna over at
A Penchant for Pens recently sent me an idea for a question relating to this topic. My favorite food eaten on a stick is GRILLED/SKEWERED shrimp.

5. Which of your five senses do you treasure most, and why?  Impossible to answer this one; am thankful for each one and hope to never lose any of them.

6. The best music, theatre, or sporting venue I've been to? In 1996 my husband was one of the volunteers for the Summer Olympics here in Atlanta; I got to attend the 'practice' opening ceremonies at the new stadium...'nuff said.
7. It's the last week of the five words or less bid adieu to your February. February brought birthday snow, thanks!

8. Insert your own random thought here. 

Hope this helps someone re-think their decisions regarding tattoos...

Tattoos are not on my bucket list and I am amazed at how many young people actually have them. Maybe they need to see this picture as well.

That cartoon is hilarious...yet another reason I will never get a tattoo. I'd be afraid it would end up somewhere around my ankles when it started on my upper arm.

Enjoyed the cartoon! :) Yes, I often wonder if people don't eventually change their minds about the whole tattoo thing. I've joined the Hodgepodge for the first time today and it's fun to meet new bloggers!

The cartoon is a hoot. I'm not a fan of body ink myself. Although I have seen some really nice work. Nice blog!

Ha-great cartoon! I love skewered shrimp too, right off the gril, BUT they must be perfectly cooked, not overdone. : )

The tattoo cartoon cracks me up. Wish I could get my daughter to believe that.

Kathy said...

Loved your cartoon! My husband and I have actually talked about how ugly tattoos must be, once the skin gets old and wrinkly. Glad I don't have one :)

I always think about that when I see young girls with tattoos in places that won't always be so...firm ;)
