Welcome Back
Saturday 9: Welcome Back
Another fun meme!

1. Where were you the last time that someone welcomed you back?

I was returning to my man's son's house to continue my vacation after being away to see my father in the nursing home. I also was checking on the CT house. I got a real NICE welcome from the man...

2. Tell us who is you favorite non-family member to hang out with?

I love hanging out with the 2 Airedale dogs that my previous bosses own. I visit the Berkshires every few weeks to go up and see them. I wrote a blog for a year about their adventures called AIREDALE ANTICS. It is still on the 1896 House website at the bottom of the home page along with my other work-related blog called BERKSHIRE RAMBLINGS.

3. What was the last thing that happened to anger you?

Last night, I opened two spoiled bottles in a row of my favorite white wine THAI LOTUS . The 3 bottles I had before them were just fine so I was thrown for a loop. (Hey, ummm, they were not all drunk on the same night BTW!)

4. What was the last thing that you saw that was shocking to see?

My ex-phone company sent me a letter telling me THEY were canceling my service. I had turned them off and canceled my account over 2 months ago. I was NOT amused.

5. What is your favorite thing to do on Saturday besides Saturday 9?

A day trip, a sleep in with THE MAN, or a get together of some sort with family or friends.

6. Have you had your summer vacation yet? If yes tell us about it.

Yes, last week I spent a week with 7 other people. Attended a wedding on the Saturday, then became a house guest at my man's son's place. We all shared one bathroom. You do the math. I really enjoyed meeting his kids and grandkids. We ate, drank a lot, played board games (or is that BORED games?), splashed around, and had fun in and around the pool. I took a million photos.

7. Pick out one of your cousins and tell us about them

My cousin David married a man long before it was so readily accepted and still lives happily with him in Kansas many years later in a gingerbread Victorian house.

8. Do you have any special plans for next week?

I want to catch my breath now back from vacation before the busy season starts at my job and plan to catch up on chores. Would love to finish the inventory for my last job. I'd promised I'd do it for them before October even tho I no longer work there.

9. At what age will you consider yourself old and why?

Gee, I think I already answered this in another meme. My ballpark number on old will be somewhere in the 70s or 80s if I survive til then, but I will fight BEING old. I still feel 30 something in my head, but the joints and wrinkles definitely are in their 50s.


  1. hahaha funny but maybe the letter sent to you by your ex-phone company just crossed their mail even before they received your cancellation..(=
