Share Your World #36

If you were given a boat or yacht today, what would you name it?  (You can always sell the yacht later) Today I would be given a kayak if I had my choice.  I learned how to use a kayak about three years ago.  I would name it the San Antonio, as that was where I was when I learned how to use one.  I loved it instantly, and I continued to use one every chance again.  But where I live, the only place I would be able to propel one would either be on the Root River (as nasty as it sounds), the quarry, which I’ve forgotten what it is called, but is very deep.  I think I would be scared out of my gourd, even if I were wearing a life vest, which of course I would be.  The only other alternative would be Lake Michigan, and that would depend on the weather, if there were waves, or if it were smooth.  I don’t think I would want to do that unless I had a death wish.  I guess I would sell it and put the money in some kind of savings account.


But I have used one, and I won a silver medal two years in a row, in a kayak competition.  



Unfortunately, since I’ve sold my kayak, I will not be able to compete with one this year.


Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best?  (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be?  Which of the 7 dwarfs best describes me?  I would have to say Sleepy, but Grumpy also, so the 8th dwarfs name would be Slumpy, which is a very good description of me.  I spend my days slumped into my recliner, when I’m not in my power chair.  I can’t slump in that chair, but I most definitely do in my recliner.  I think I have a permanent slump shape in that chair.


Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?  Hmm, I really have to think about this one.  I loved the Tori Amos song that was posted on Cee’s site, but it has to be something else.  Okay.  It just hit me like a ton of rocks.  I have made a lot of changes in my life over the last . . . years, and so this is the one that is a part of my life, both when I first heard it 40-some years ago, and much more so today.  The song would be “I Am Woman” by Helen Reddy which I believe came out around 1975, and was very much a part of my life.

Complete this sentence:  I like watching…TV series on Netflix, particularly The Fosters. and I can hardly wait for the next season to come out.  I have other favorites as well, but this is the best one, followed by,  The Walking Dead, which kept me enthralled for a few weeks, I do believe.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  I guess that I’m grateful that I did not have to go anywhere last week, I had no appointments, so I didn’t have to leave home in all that heat, which I cannot tolerate.

 And in the week coming up, I’m looking forward to staying at home, being entertained by my big screen TV, and my laptop.  My cat is more of a bother, but she makes me get up in the morning, which I guess is a good thing, or else I might just sleep the day away.  She has a built in alarm clock, and sits on the middle of my chest, and checks to see if I’m alive and going to get up and feed her, by trying to lick my eyelids.  That is not really a very pleasant experience, but the opportunity to stay at home, with friends around in my building, out of the heat, is something that I look forward to this week.
