Share Your World
This is a great meme. Each week we are given a list of a few questions and asked to give our responses to them. Come on, give it a try. This week the questions were provided by Emilio from Photo By Emilio came up with the questions. They usually come from Cee.https://ceenphotography.com
What is your earliest memory? This is sort of a controversial question in that my mother says I cannot possibly remember it, but I do. When I was a very young child, I choked on a sucker (lollipop). My father turned me upside down and pounded my back until it came loose.
What was the last photo you took with your phone? I have a simple flip-phone. It does have a camera, but not a very good one. The last photo taken with my phone was of some purple flowers outside our daughter’s dorm. I am not sure if my child-bride Suzanne took that one or not.
Have you ever danced in the rain? I am a certifiable goofball. One time before my child-bride and I got married, we were walking back to her dorm at the University of South Carolina when it started to sprinkle. I grabbed her and started to dance.
What is the longest you have gone without sleep? A little more than 72 hours. I used to be a volunteer with the Iva Rescue Squad. One day, a little boy drowned while out with his parents on a picnic. We were called in to find him, hopefully alive. He was found, but not alive. I went home to crash, but about the time my head hit the pillow, the tones for the rescue squad went off again. I went back to the squad hut. My driver was refreshed and rested because he was not on the last rescue. We got to the hospital and while waiting for the ambulance to be released, I decided to catch a short nap on a gurney. I woke up in the morgue. My driver and the security officer at the hospital had thought it would be funny to roll me in there. I looked up, saw where I was, and went back to sleep.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? Our weeks are pretty much same-o same-o. I am grateful that we made it through the week and we are all still alive. I am grateful that my daughter did not hurt herself worse than she did in the horse accident. I am grateful that my military sons are safe (one of my older son’s unit mates died this past week). I am looking forward to being able to Skype with my kids whenever they can get access to a computer with internet access.
