Friendly Fill-Ins

This is a fun meme co-hosted by 15 and Meowing and McGuffy’s Reader. Be sure to visit and join in the fun!

Friday_Fill-In_BadgeHere are the fill-ins:

  1. The best part of where I live is _________________.
  2. The worst part of where I live is ________________.
  3. If I had ________, I would _______________________.
  4. My favorite article of cold weather clothing is _____.


Here are my responses:


I am not sure of the best part of where I live. Maybe the extra long growing season because flowers are growing here pretty much all year long. I saw sunflowers still out there shining away the other day while we were out.

The worst part of where I live is the fact that it is loaded with drunks all over the place. The crime rate here is higher than in New York City.  According to, the US average crime index is 286.7.  New York City’s most recent crime index was 234.8.  NYC population in 2014 was 8,491,079.  For Wharton, the most recent crime index is 335.6, just over 100 points higher than NYC… and the population here is less than 9,000 people!

Okay, the thing that keeps popping into my head for #3 is a song: “If I had a hammer, I’d hammer in the morning. I’d hammer in the evening. All over this land.”  But, my answer would be if I had my health & youth back, I would work on doing all those things that I put off for “some day”. Because I know now that those some days are not guaranteed.

My favorite article of cold weather clothing would have to be my beautiful, velvety knitted red and black sweater.  But, I can’t wear it now because something snagged the heck out of it and tore it.  I am considering making something out of what is left of it, but I’m not exactly sure what yet. I have no need for mittens, but I’ve seen several tutorials on how to make those out of old sweaters.  Maybe I’ll turn it into Christmas stockings.


Have a blessed weekend, y’all!

  1. I hope you can figure out a way to save that sweater. Or, maybe you could make socks to wear in the house. I love to do that, and have thick ones for just that! Stay safe and have a great week.

    Thank you for participating, great answers. It is nice that you have a long growing season. You could make some pillow covers with the sweater or just enjoy wearing it around the house. Have a nice weekend. XO
