Willy Nilly Hodge Podge

Willy Nilly Silly Old Hodgepodge

Welcome to the Wednesday Hodgepodge! Can you believe it's the middle of January?   I  can't...   time is flyin'!  Click the icon to return to  J0yce's page!

1. ASAP typically stands for 'as soon as possible'. What else could it stand for in your life right now?
Anchored Securely and Peaceful 

2. Are you the last person to speak up in a group or the first to have an idea? Why do you suppose that is? Is it a good thing or no?

I   tend to lead out  with ideas...  I don't know if it is the teacher in me or what...   but  sometimes  I  get so  excited to share a point I have to  physical hold my hand over my mouth to keep myself from butting in...  Well,  with my  best  friends....    as we meet  regularly  to plan  community prayer events across denominations, and    I am one of the more vocal  of the group.. we all have our  own best  giftings...  and some a re more  quiet..  I often  am asked to lead  small group Bible studies because I  enjoy  talking about spiritual  things.I think that is good  because some groups can be very non vocal and I  do  like to draw others into  conversation.

3. What do you remember best about being 12?

I remember I felt gawky and was super introverted.  I hated  my cat glasses!

4. January 18th is National Winnie the Pooh Day. Which character do you relate to the most, and why? If you're stumped go here for inspiration.

I, like  our hostess,  love Eyeore... I love his solemnity and  down trodden point of view...  not because  I associate with it,  but I do believe that  my empathy for Eyeore  taught me   about compassion for others.  I find I have often  felt  drawn to  that type person to  show attention and  concern  for.

5. What's an app you use that helps simplify or make life easier for you in some way?

I have to have music in my life...  I mean almost  every waking moment...  and  it is so great not to have to  buy  cd's  when I  love an artist  and especially becasue our area is all country music radio stations,  I  have to say it would be Pandora!!!!

6. San Francisco (CA), San Diego (CA), San Juan (PR) San Antonio (TX) Sanibel (FL) have an all expenses paid long weekend to one of these destinations. Which one do you choose and why?

Well, none of these really   float my boat...  I'll save  that money and apply it to an Alaskan cruise.  

7. Share with us a song that makes you feel nostalgic? For what?
The first one I think of is Merry Christmas, Darling.   It came out the year I was a senior in college and my  fiance'  was  serving in the military overseas,  I was so lonesome for him.. and  I would be  lying in my  dorm room  crying every time  they played the  song..  I still  tear up  each time I hear it!

8. Insert your own random thought here.Our youngest granddaughter  just turned 0ne last month and we sent her  her birthday present in the mail. Her first baby doll...
I love her   reaction,  realizing what it was, and that it was her's..


  1. I too sometimes feel like Eeyore, but the quiz listed me as Kanga. I guess the positive outweighed the negative. Your granddaughter is a cutie!

  2. Your granddaughter is lovely. My wife and I have two granddaughters who we love more than we ever thought possible. I love spoiling them at every turn much to the chagrin of their parents. I enjoyed reading your answers this week. Until next time...


Your comments are a huge blessing and encouragement to me~
