Used to be I would answer cheese puffs to this one. Now, I would say raisins. After the strokes, I try to stay away from fats and salts.
Is the paper money in your possession right now organized sequentially according to denomination and with the bills right side up and facing the same way?
I was once held up at gunpoint because I had 50¢. Since that time, I stay away from carrying any cash, if at all possible. Right now, I have one $1 bill and that is all. It is right side up in my wallet. It is difficult to get 1 bill out of sequential order. By the way, it is also alphabetized and in serial number order. It is also divided by the min
t and the date it was printed. Easy to do when there is only the one.
If you were a mouse in your house in the evening, what would you see your family doing?
My child-bride and I would be on our computers and our oldest daughter would be on her computer or phone. Or, I might be reading with my grand-dogger in my lap.
Would you rather not be able to read or not be able to speak?
Hard question. I talk a lot. I also love to read. If I could not speak, I would write if at all possible. Growing up I knew a good many people who could not read. They would come to my family’s store to get my father to read their mail to them. If he was not there, they would ask me to do it. This was very sad.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
I am grateful for one more stroke-free week. I am grateful both my daughters got to be home. We had to take the baby back to the island today. This is sad. I am also grateful that this past week my child-bride Suzanne celebrated her 17th birthday. I know it is her 17th because our first official date was on her 16th birthday and she has not aged a day since then.
While I don't know when it will happen, I am looking forward to hearing from Davey again. He shipped out over the weekend. This is his first assignment to a ship.
I am working on a frugal cookbook. If you have any frugal recipes, please send them to me.
