Crowning HodgePodge

1. How many students were in your high school graduating class? Did you know most, if not all of them?
There were 35 people in my graduating class. You could say we kind of knew each other. lol

2. What was the last thing you photographed? Though she is technically not a "thing" I photographed a precious four year old girl Saturday. Can't wait to get her pics edited.

3. Pickles-love 'em or loathe 'em? If its love what's something you eat that needs a pickle? I love a good pickle. Especially, the refrigerator pickles I make every year. They are scrumptious alone, as a side, or on a sandwich.

4. What's a stereotype you seem to perpetuate without meaning to? Harley riders. And I am one!

5. Ever been horse back riding? If so is it something you enjoy? If not, do you have any interest? Did you watch the Kentucky Derby? Will you be watching the last leg of the Triple Crown this weekend? I have owned several horses over my lifetime. I'm over that. They are too much work. I traded in my four-legged beast for a steel-wheeled machine. I'll be out on it this weekend, so there won't be much TV on my schedule.

6. What's your favorite 'wedding' movie? I'd have to say "27 Dresses."

7. What is one 'tourist attraction' in the USA that you'd like to see in person? New York City. I absolutely want to go. The hubs? Not so much.

8. Insert your own random thought here. I am absolutely retiring at the end of this month. I'm counting down the days on my calendar. Marking them off with a big black 'X'. I cannot wait!!!
Thanks for stopping by and visiting. Be sure to visit our lovely host Joyce and the other HodgePodgers. 

Peace and Joy,

1 Thessalonians 5:11 (NIV) Therefore encourage one another and build each other up, just as in fact you are doing.

Holy Heart Failure Batman!

It looks like the Joker has been up to his old tricks. What shenanigans are these? I stop in to see how my neglected blog is holding up and everything is changed. YIPPEEEEE! More things to learn. I think my poor little brain is on cognitive overload.

In the meantime, I am busy preparing to retire from my job of 30 years and do something I totally love: taking pictures. It is pure joy. That's what photography brings me each and every time a capture the pure essence of someone. Whether it is a newborn or a grandmother.

Hope you all are well. I think of you often and pray for you as God leads. Oh, and I'm working on my summer gottado list. I'll have it posted soon. Happy summer.

Peace and Joy,

James 1:2 (NKJV)My brethren, count it all joy when you fall into various trials,
