It’s time to join Cee at Share Your World. This big old grouper sandwich is from Turtles on Little Sarasota Bay, Siesta Key, Florida and this sandwich is what I was looking forward to for LUNCH the next week in my last SYW post but I couldn’t say where then! So it is a little part of my answer in Cee’s bonus questions at the end of the post. Have I befuddle-muddled you yet? On to Cee’s questions for this week. Join Cee’s Share Your World with a post of your own and link back to her or if you feel all up and HAPPY, play in the comments. I would love seeing your answers.
Where did you live at age five? Is it the same place or town you live now?
I lived in a small town just south of St. Louis, Missouri. It is not the same place I live now.
You are invited to a party that will be attended by many fascinating people you never met. Would you attend this party if you were to go by yourself?
Yes… probably. As long as I don’t have to wear a fru fru dress.
Did you grow up in a small or big town? Did you like it?
I grew up in a small town and I mean teeny! Yes I did like it… I loved growing up there. I had a blast and had some wonderful friends. Those were the days when my gal pals and I could walk home from school and stop at the dime store lunch counter and order a big old plate of crinkle cut french fries with a blob of ketchup for dipping the fries and a fountain Coke with a squirt of cherry syrup. And because that wasn’t enough food fun we would order a scoop of chocolate ice cream with gooey marshmallow on top in a chilly cold metal serving dish. AND we didn’t give a hoot about the calories! Dang, it is always about FOOD for me.
As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up?
I don’t remember thinking about that. All I wanted to do was ride horses. For a brief time in grade school I wanted to be a nun… dying here, dying. You went to Catholic school back in the old days, they worked very hard at trying to recruit you to join the sisterhood of nuns. I still didn’t know what I wanted to be in college and now at 63 I just want to be happy and healthy.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful for the trip to Venice, Florida and the grouper sandwich for lunch. I am looking forward to ordering a pair of BOOTS in the week coming up… I see a BOOT post in my future!
