He never liked for people to tell him “Happy Birthday”, so, I didn’t call him to tell him “Happy Birthday” that year.  He was dead 6 days later.

    I knew about the shrimp and the cheesecake. Now I know about the ice cream. I’ve never had Blue Bell before.

    Have a fabulous day. ♥

    Interesting questions & I enjoyed reading your answers. I think I may have done these before, as it sounds like some familiar questions.
    The answer your daughter gave to the bed time story was funny! ‘Once upon a time, go to bed’ 🙂
    I don’t think I have Instagram, or I’ve forgotten that I do? I never really knew what it was for. Kind of like Tumblr, which I have, but never do anything with it, and Pinterest either.
    Well, Suzanne, I wish you a lovely rest of the day, and a good start to the weekend. ❤

    • Thanks, Barbara.😊. I’ll have to look through your blog for your answers once my computer is on again.
      I will let Laynie know that you enjoyed her response.😊
      I hear you. I sign up for things, then forget all about them, or I can’t figure them out, so I give up. I have a Tumblr, too, but couldn’t figure it out and abandoned it.

      Have a blessed night!

  3. Thanks for telling us so much about you. Absolutely agree shoes without laces are the best. And cheap shampoo indeed works as good as expensive brands.
    Have a good time!

    • Thanks, Suze. I loved your answers, too, especially the grits response.😊
      Where in SC is your family from? My family has had over 300 years there, mostly in the area from Oconee County down to Edgefield County.
      Have a blessed night.

  5. 5 different books? And I thought I had a lot of different stories going on in my head.

    Liked by 1 person

    • David and I are book reviewers. So long as the books are of different topics. I can read more than one at a time. It’s asking for trouble, though, if they are even remotely similar. I prefer non-fiction, but do enjoy some fiction on occasion. No way would I tackle 5 fiction stories at once.

      What kind of books do you like to read? How many are you reading right now?

      Have a blessed night.

      Like

      • I read mostly fiction. Just about any kind of fiction.

        Currently, I’m reading two (Congo by Michael Crichton and Child of a Mad God by R.A. Salvatore) and writing two.

        Liked by 1 person

        • I’m not familiar with Salvatore, but have heard of Crichton. Those sound like interesting books.

          Best wishes to you with the books you are writing. I have two started, but life has them set aside for now. One is an historic romance novel, of sorts, and the other is a serial killer story. The kids really want me to finish that last one. Maybe some day.

          Have a blessed night.

    What does THWY stand for?

    Liked by 1 person

    • It is an abbreviation of a statement that my Granny Gunter made. The polite version is “To heck with you”. I chose that title as representative of her fighter spirit, which she passed on to me.

      While I have not had to endure even half the horrors that my granny endured during her lifetime, I have had to be a fighter in order to survive, too.

      Have a blessed night, Ellen.😊
