Woo Hoo! Last week, in jest, I suggested a question Cee should ask as part of my answer to her question regarding what I always take with me wherever I go. This week she used that question! I am honored! An internet recognition – does that mean I’m “somebody”? Anyway, I certainly cannot ignore this week’s sharing, can I?
1. On a vacation what you would require in any place that you would stay? Question came from Wanderings of an Elusive Mind The obvious first: cleanliness, a comfy bed, shower, a refrigerator and microwave is nice, a coffee pot. However, the most important would be electricity so I can charge my electronic gadgets, and INTERNET! Life without internet is not life! Gone are the days of my youth when I was comfortable camping in a basic camper; now I am not especially willing to do with any less than at least a KOA Kabin – where they have internet. I don’t need luxury really, although I wouldn’t turn it down. I must confess to really loving the beds and bedding in the Hampton Inns.
2. If you were or are a writer do you prefer writing short stories, poems or novels? I guess I’d have to choose short stories because I doubt I could build a plot to take me through a whole novel. A poet, I am not, so that lets out poems. My preference though is blogging, or something very similar – a place where I can do stream of consciousness or rant or rave about whatever is on my mind at the moment. Something that doesn’t require a great deal of planning.
3. What’s your favorite song of the moment? I tend to have the same favorite songs most of the time. Hallelujah is one that always gets me – I think I have it in MP3 form by several artists. More recently, Carrie Underwood’s Temporary Home and Mama’s Song. Philip Phillips Home. Cry Me A River, that one is another that I have by multiple artists – Julie London (of course), Susan Boyle and more recently, Angie Miller who is currently an American Idol contestant. Sucker for nostalgia, I am.
4. If you were to buy a new house/apartment what is the top items on your wish list? Windows, lots of windows. An open floor plan. No carpet, all laminates – less work to keep up than hardwood. With all those windows, some kind of view of green – mountains would be fine, ocean would be wonderful, river or lake would work as an ocean-replacement. No desert. I am not a desert person.
The perfect KOA cabin in Deadwood, South Dakota. I am deep in concentration, writing a blog to keep family and friends up to date on our travels. Don’t know what’s up with the brim of the hat folded back – dorky!
