Odd Bits

Posted under Bits & Pieces Fridays 9 Comments

So I took the new car out for a spin yesterday.

Well, not a spin, exactly… I had to take it up to the dealership to get it’s plates. Since the weather was dry, it was a treat. Today, is the state inspection, and then back into the garage it goes until the nasty weather is over.  My current car is still kicking so I’m driving that for all the piddly little trips around town.

Anyway, it’s Bits time, so let’s get to it, shall we?

  1. Your current must-see TV at the moment?
  2. Last night’s overnight temps where you live?
  3. Favorite veggie?
  4. Favorite fruit?
  5. If you could rename yourself, what name would you pick?

Have a great weekend!

  2. If you could rewind to ONE day last year and enjoy it all over again, what would it be and why?
  3. If you could be any creature for a day, what would you pick and why?
  4. Are you afraid of heights?
  5. Something that always makes you smile?

Have a lovely weekend, everyone!

  1. Favorite holiday song?
  2. Real or fake?
  3. Star or angel?

Have a great weekend, everyone!

P.S. If you’re on Facebook, be sure to check out my AUTHOR page (url shown in graphic below) every day from now until December 19th (and hopefully beyond just because) to get in on whatever “Big News” Countdown goodie I have up for grabs that day. I’ll be posting that day’s goodie during the 7-8 a.m. hour most days and, who knows, you just might land something good! Basic RGB



Turkey Bits

Posted under Bits & Pieces Fridays 6 Comments

In light of the fact that this is our last bits before the official Thanksgiving holiday, it seems only appropriate that we have turkey bits today. So here we go…

  1. Turkey or other meat? And if turkey, white or dark meat?
  2. Favorite veggie?
  3. Stuffing or mashed potatoes?
  4. Favorite way to have turkey leftovers?
  5. Under/over on how long you’ll think you’ll be eating leftovers this year?
  6. Dessert most looking forward to?

In lieu of the holiday and the busyness that ensues (my college kid is coming home!), I’ll meet you all back here again on Monday, November 27th.  Until then, be safe, eat well 🙂  , save up your favorite “three things–the post holiday wrap up” to share when we return.

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
