Random Dozen

It's been a while since I have participated in Linda's Random Dozen at 2nd Cup of Coffee. These are always so much fun .........

1. Describe the best sandwich in the world according to you. It would be on thick fresh Italian bread with a generous slathering of peanut butter, creamy of course and medium to thin crisp sliced English cucumber!! YUM-O

2. Which inspire you more: a good conversation, a song, a book or a movie? Nothing beats a good conversation but a book can run a close 2nd many times - Beth Moore comes to mind - like conversation in book form!!

3. What is your favorite board game? Oh...this is a tough one for me - it is a mood thing - I LOVE trivia, especially music (70's) trivia, Trivial Pursuit is on the top of my list for that reason, but I also love Scrabble and Cranium - again depends on my mood ;-) Anything that gets my thinker thinking!

4. As you grow older, are you more or less patient with small children? This one might best be answered as the last one was- mood plays a big part in this one - that and how much my not so small child has been behaving on any given day!

5. Name one item you never let yourself run out of? COFFEE .......and toilet paper is important but coffee gets the #1 spot ......sad perhaps but true.

6. Do you agree with Tennyson's assertion, "Tis better to have loved and lost than never to have loved at all'? Absolutely - cannot imagine living and never having loved - that is so much a part of who we are - there are many kinds of love to consider here too.....hmmm

7. Name one national treasure or monument that you have visited. Because I grew up in Toronto, I visited Niagara Falls many times - the Canadian side really is much nicer y'all, but doesn't hold a candle to The Grand Canyon - breathtaking!! I would really love to see Mount Rushmore and visit Yellowstone Park just FYI.

8. What is more painful, to be disappointed in someone else, or to be disappointed in yourself? For me it has to be to be disappointed in myself and what's even harder than that is disappointing someone I love.

9. What makes your kitchen uniquely yours? The love notes inside my cupboards ;-)

10. Are you a crafty person? I try to be - at some times more successfully than at other times.

11. What if your favorite traditional picnic or bbq(cookout) food? Ribs and potato salad (with dill pickle, English peas and bacon)

12. Name one leisure activity you enjoyed over Labor Day Weekend? Letterboxing after many months ....Who-rah ;-)

I am hoping to get to Niagara (the Canadian side for sure!) one of these days. And Mt. Rushmore. We travel a lot but haven't been to either place and they'r both on my to-see list.

Have a great day!

That's one interesting sounding sandwich! I also love the "love notes" in the cupboards answer.
Have a great day :)

We were at Niagara for my brother-in-law's wedding back in 1983. We had a few hours in the morning before the wedding to run over and have a look at the falls (and we were on the Canadian side!). Wow. Wish I could've stood at the rail for hours, just watching the water go over the edge...
