If you could take lessons to learn any musical instrument, which would you want to learn?

I have always wanted to learn how to play the piano. I tried once back in the 70's when Karen Carpenter was so famous. I got so that I could play a little of her songs and I could play a little bit of Fleur Elise. I used to play the accordion when I was young for 10 years!! Remember accordion bands? Nope well you are not as old as I am then!!

Have you ever mistaken a person for someone else?

I am someone that thinks everyone needs to hear their own name everytime that you meet them so I have always been GOOD with names, but every once in a while I GOOF and when I do...and I do often...I feel AWFUL and wish that I could just fall into a HOLE right there in the ground... right there on the spot. SO yes I have done it a lot!! BUT I keep trying!!

On a scale of 1 to 10 with 10 being highest, how well do you keep secrets?
I am a marvelous secret keeper. I guess I would be a 14.0 at secret keeping and always have been...but one thing about keeping secrets when you tell me one...since I have been married...hubby WILL know it too...WE DO NOT keep secrets in this marriage!!

Main Course
What's the closest you've ever been to a dangerous animal?

Does a bull on a farm count? My brother and I got in a barn (shed) once and this bull got us penned in there and would not let us out!! That is about as close as I can remember getting to a mean snorting animal. When you are little he looked pretty dangerous to us!!


When was the last time you lost your patience?
I don't lose it as much as I did when I was younger, but I guess it would have to be Wednesday when I was helping my friend Barb set up her blog (you need to go visit her too). We would just get to where we thought it was set up and blogger would not accept her we would have to reset it...then it would not accept that NEW reset password...SO we would have to reset it again...this happened about 4 times...Finally we ended up using the old password!! I was about ready to kick the computer or tell blogger OFF!! Yeap that was the last time I lost my patience for SURE!! OH I was not a happy camper with blogger.....

Bless your little "squeeze box" heart. I remember how much trouble we had setting up your account. I went by and yes, I do remember her. (btw...I'm ALWAYS nice.) Hope you had a great anniversary. When do you pick up Annie?

Great feast! Yikes, a bull! The closest I got to a bull was when it was in a corral and I was on the other side off the fence. :) I get frustrated with blogger too. That's why I don't use it too much. I only have it for my husbands songs.

Thanks for stopping by.

I also wish I could play the piano.I'm always so amazed and inspired by beautiful piano playing. But, alas . . . I have no musical ability!
Great post!!

Thanks for stopping by. I love the way you use a kind of outline for your posts. Yes, a bull is a very dangerous animal. And when a bull is upset he is very wild. A bull can make the bravest cowboy run for his life. I live in the west, the cowboys out here are (thinktheyare) pretty "tuff". but they can run or ride with great speed if a bull runs their way. Enough of that, eh. I enjoy your blogs and your friendliness. I like to see what kind of day "Flip Flop" is having. :-)

Love this list, Sandy!! I loved Karen Carpenter. So talented...and such a sad story.

I actually gave myself a 9 for the secret thing because I usually tell my dh everything...we don't have secrets either.

Have a great weekend.


:-) Susan
