Not to seem superstitious, but the number 13 is a favorite of mine, so I couldn’t miss this one.
What was your favorite subject in school?
I didn’t like school – for a number of reasons. This is a ‘sharing’ challenge so I’ll share. I had very few friends in school. Maybe my own doing, I don’t know. But it kind of spoiled school for me. Later, much later, I attended college at the age of 47. At that age you’re there for the learning, not for the friendships, so, then, math was my favorite. (I got your back, Gen).
“Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away” (George Carlin). When have you had such a moment?
No doubt, the birth of my son.
What’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, or numeric puzzles?
Numeric puzzles, of course. And I love, Love, LOVE Sudoku. Every Sunday, Jeff and I go out for breakfast. He has to have the Sunday paper. I have to have the Sudoku. We sit and reach our hands across the table, my left resting on Jeff’s right, waiting for our order. Jeff reads. I do the puzzle. Corny you might say. I say Thank God.
If you found an obviously abandoned car with $50,000 in the back seat, what would you do?
As much as I could really use the money – Uncle Sam creamed us this year! – I’d have to turn it in to the police. I’m such a nerd.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week,
That our taxes weren’t any higher!! I’m paying taxes on money that I already paid taxes on! ie: Social Security. Come on. Really? Yes. Really. But it can always be worse, right?
and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
Next week I’m off from my little caregiver job. I can use the time off. And if the sun decides to shine, BONUS!

Thanks for stopping by.
You’d turn the money in – I think you’re more honorable than I. Although, I’m not certain what I’d do.
It’s not that I’m such s nice person as much as the I’d be afraid of the karma. 😱
I was like you at school, but it made my school enjoyable.. it trained me to be a peace loving human being.. I still today do not mix greatly. But the 60’s and 70’s we so free and exciting and people were not looking for anything other than friendship… 😉
I’m not a mixer either, gerry. I can talk to strangers in a supermarket more easily than I can talk to people that I know.✌️
Thank you, but still – there is way too much math in this entire post. Including taxes. Ugh! I hate those things. Is that quote really George Carlin? Because it’s also an awesome George Strait country song. Found (stolen) money is just bad karma waiting to happen. Math aside, good call on that one.
That’s funny. I just mentioned karma to one of the bloggers Carol. It’s like if I take the money I’ll probably go straight to hell. We don’t want that to happen.
Great minds think alike.
I like the sound of your Sundays Gemma 😉
… and yes .. the money would have to be handed over for me too .
Have a happy week … hope you *find some Sun 🙂
The sun is so bright today. Jeff and I went for a walk and stopped at a coffee shop. My transition glasses were so dark I almost walked into the counter. You made it happen thanks.🌞
Wishing you a few sunbeams, Gemma. I’m sure your little friend will give you lots of sunny smiles. When I was a child, I found a one pound note on the street, an absolute fortune in those days. My mom made me hand it in at the police station. To this day, I wonder what happened to it. 🙂 Wishing you a happy day. xx
Thank you, ad. 🌞❤️
I love your Sunday’s! And not corny at all. Well, maybe a little bit but in a wonderful way. Love is hard to come by – I don’t know why we have to argue so much about who can love who. “Thank God” indeed.
Your love of Sudoku intimidates me but I feel you pain on the taxes. You’re a good person Gemma!
Correction: I feel your pain. I am not only mathematically challenged, I also type like a two year old. 😉
I get it. 👍
Thanks, Janna ( but you don’t know me. LOL )
Seriously. Much thanks.
MathS was your favourite??? Well we can still be friends – and anyway I ended up in data analysis, didn’t it? Subject? One of the sciences – chem or biology maybe. Love the quote – being charged by a Mountain Gorilla would be one example for me.
Crosswords – I do them with my wife regularly. The cash in the car – it would depend on my feelings at the time.
Well from the past week – and I’m not sure I’m grateful for this! – a tradesman at our front door today said hello to an old woman who was in the hallway behind me – but there was no one else in the house – I mean, wow, who yuh gonna call? Next week – more time on the Somerset Levels; more table tennis. A
What?!??? Ghostbusters for sure, bud! Ahhhh! And ahhhhh with the Mountain Gorilla! Yikes!

I didn’t have many friends in school either….One or two. Did you know that I consider 13 to be my lucky number!!!! 🙂
No! You too? I have little gold earrings I got a million years ago with the number 13. I thought I lost them once and I panicked. I thought the world was going to crash down around me. But then I found them. And things got better. LOL
I didn’t even know you had a son. Have you blogged about him much? And I don’t think it is corny at all that you and Jeff show a little PDA on Sunday mornings 😉
He is all about PDA. I have to reign him in! I’ll tell you about it sometime. My son is 29. My only. Jeff has 3 boys and 2 girls – all grown. We have none together but he always tells me how cute they would have been if we did. 😁
I wouldn’t touch that money and I’d call the police right now! I like you and your Husband’s Sunday breakfast outings too… 🙂 Corny works for me..
I have no idea where those two little periods at the end of the last sentence are going to or thinking. I left them just hanging there so here.. 🙄
I love Sudoku!!
Thanks for the peek into your life. I also think your Sunday morning breakfast and hand holding is sweet….nothing wrong with corny!
Awwwh- happy Easter Sunday! And I have a small gift 🙂
Enjoy strolling down that sunlit lane , if you get chance.
Oh! So incredible! Both of my signature icons in one post. Thanks, Jo! I love it. HAPPY EASTER ❤️
You’re welcome 🙂 And to you and Jeff!
A joy and a blessing to see your world. This I can so relate when you wrote, ““Life is not measured by the number of breaths you take, but by the moments that take your breath away” (George Carlin). When have you had such a moment?
No doubt, the birth of my son. Our love ones take our breathe away with the happiness they give in our lives. A hug, a kiss, of seeing them after a days hard work…
Wishing you and your family a blessed Easter.
Thank you, Mr. B. Happy Easter to you and your family. ❤️
I had a friend in high school who loved the #13 – but I have yet to find anyone else who does – 🙂 – ❤ –
also, that sunday outing sounds fun – and your brain must be staying so sharp with all the puzzles.
Oh this ol’ brain? 😉
