Here’s what’s on tap from our host Melanie. Cheers to Cyranny and Sadje for the questions. Let’s get this party started 🙂


How well do you know your next-door neighbors?   Do you like them?   (credit to Cyranny for the question) We live out on some acreage and technically do not have next-door neighbors. The parcel next to us is where C and R live. C is two years younger than me. She and her older sister P road the bus to school in the mornings with B and his brother. The foursome was what my mom would’ve called “first” friends having grown up together. We like C&R very much. We’ve not gathered in a year but we are on call/stand by to help each other.

Do you have a full length mirror?  (credit to Sadje for the rest of the questions) I do not but I can get an almost full length view in my bathroom mirror if necessary. Which is never.

(for the men)  Do you shave every day or do you like the ‘stubble’ look, or a beard? I’m answering anyway. LOL. I do not shave every day. In fact I have not shaved in over a year. I told my doctor I was embarrassed for having not shaven when I went in for my exam. She asked why? My male patients do not shave for me. We were meant to have hair in certain places. Have I told you that I love my doctor? Well I do 🙂

(for the ladies)   How long do you spend putting on make-up in the morning? No time at all. I don’t wear make-up even pre-Covid. Though once upon a time I would not leave my house without make-up. That was short-lived. Life got busy and I quit caring or both.

How many items of clothing are in your bedroom (or closet) and not hung up? A place for everything and everything in its place. All my clothes are hung up or in their proper drawers. B uses our rocking chair as a clothes hanger but usually he only puts his clothes for the next day on it.

GRATITUDE QUESTION (as always optional)

Do you have a happy place? I do. It was the library. They still are not letting people in except by appointment to use the computer. They are do have curbside for books. From 7:30 am to 10:30 pm, they have free wi-fi in the parking lot. I really miss book club and the other activities. I am grateful for the free internet that has allowed several folks to work or attend school using laptops from their cars. I only had to do that once or twice during the Spectrum debacle. Saved the day.
