Friday Fill-In

May 18, 2012


I haven’t done this meme in a while! Fridays are usually one of the busiest days of the week for me, so I’m often scrambling to get things done. I’m still scrambling, but I have a few precious moments today!

Fill ins:

1. I like to avoid ___ if possible.

Television. I hate it. If I watch it, I can just watch the behavioral science and social engineering techniques ooze from the box. I never noticed the effect at first, but after a year of not watching TV and then going back to it, the effect was stunning. I once read a report that said that in days past, children got their moral values from their parents and their churches. But today, most children get their values from television, public schools, and music. So essentially, others are raising are kids. I can’t say they’re doing such a great job, can you? :-p

2. ___ is a virtue I do not have.

Tolerance, lol. Well, I can tolerate some things just fine! But the boob tube? nah.

3. Sometimes the _____________ are the ______________.

Sometimes wild flowers are the prettiest flowers.

4. I think that _____________ are the best _____________.

I think that lawn tractors are the best lawn equipment. I say that because BOTH our lawn tractor AND push mower have died this spring. We can’t figure out what the heck is wrong and the push mower is only a year old! It’s been raining buckets so the lawn grass is about 8 inches high! šŸ™


My time is up! have a great weekend, friends!

    I love wildflowers, too. And I hope you get the mowers fixed so you can take care of the cat barf, um, I mean long grass!

      Susi– LOL! Yeah, the grass. šŸ˜‰

      Actually we’ve got ALMOST the entire lawn mowed. It’s no fun mowing 1.5 acres with a push mower every couple of days.

      I like the wild sweet peas that grows on the sides of the road. Smells heavenly!
