Wednesday in Texas

Hey, Y'all,
Wednesday morning looks lovely out there, and I'll betcha it's gonna be hot, fer shure!
My grandson and his sweet little wifey are asleep upstairs with two of their four children. Whitney and Daniel have two sons, Austin and Noah, and two daughters, Hannah and Ellie. Austin and Noah are with their other great grand parents, just down the block and around the corner. Hannah and Ellie are here with Dan and Whit. They all had supper together with Whitney's parents last evening.

Carol is at work, Daryl is at a conference in another city, and the other grandkids are kind of scattered around. I am sure that Andrew is at work, his wife, Julia, is busy at home with their two little girls, Alyssa and Brooke. Matt and his soon to be bride, Amy, are at work, I would suppose, and grand-daughter Emily is at work.

My friend, Carmen, at (sorry, I don't know how to do the link thingy) has just tagged me with the 5 question "getting to know you" questionnaire. I am supposed to tag 5 more people and will figure out who I want to tag by the end of this posting. I am to answer 5 questions five times, so here goes. (Man! This is going to take a little time to reach back for the first one, but here goes.)

1) Where were you five years ago?
A. Living with my sweetie pie at home of our daughter, Teresa and her husband, Tom, in Navarre, Florida.
B. Recovering from heart bypass surgery (just about fully recovered actually)
C. Going to Curves and trying to get back into shape (ha)
D. Getting ready to work in Bible School at the church in Florosa
E. Eating out sometimes with Tom, Teresa and Gramps

2) Where would you like to be five years from now?
A. Well, first of all, I would like to be still kicking around this old green ball we call earth.
B. Still blogging
C. Still able to drive (see my expectations are not real high, but doable)
D. Touring the country promoting a new book I had just had published.
E. Throwing money around because I would have a lot . Ha ha ha

3) What is (was) on your list to do today?
A. Just regular stuff
B. Hold and kiss my grandbabies, grandkids.
C. Play with them
D. Spend some time with Dan and Whit and everyone else here
E. Have three meals (always a good option, and one I try to always do. ha)

4) What five snacks do you enjoy?
A. Just regular stuff (that includes chocolate anything, just about)
B. Crab dip and vegetable thins
C. Hot chocolate and cheese-its (sweet and salty together)
D. Banana Split
E. Apple slices and pepper jack cheese

5) What would you do if you were a billionaire?
A) Faint first when I heard that I was, then Thank God for the opportunity to use it.
B) Set up a regular donation (anonymously) to my church
C) Build and fund a nursing home that would have only the best care and not charge the residents more than a hundred dollars a month. I would set up a foundation that would be able to continue funding it perpetually.
D) Buy a modest home out in the country (we are renters) where my husband and I could live and he could have great care as long as he lived, and I could have a large room for setting up a huge quilting frame and quilt that way.
E) Establish some kind of foundation for helping battered women and children that would put them back on their feet.

Sorry about the lack of links I don't know how to do that yet.
Well, I gotta be about my days doings now. I haven't had my breakfast yet.
This is Blabbin' Grammy signing off for now. Much love to each of you. Bye for now. More later.

this taggin` business sure is contagious! but it's interesting to read the answers!:) ...been dragging my feet this morning and had better start writing my own. have a great day, Ruby!!!

It was wonderful coming to know more about you. I do wish you get a billion dollars, so you can do all the good you want to do.

Links are simple - when you write the post, just above the box is an icon that looks like two steel chain links . All you have to do is highlight the text which you want to link, click on those steel links, and type in the name of the website.

Easie peasie!

I just happened upon your page while visiting friends of friends (of friends). What a lovely lady you are! I'm enjoying getting to know you through your posts.
May God bless you as you keep blogging!

Like the "Just regular stuff" answers. And it's really hot here as well.


Pleased you're enjoying yourself.
I've been tagged answers isn't very interesting.

I feel a little bit up in the air,
I was supposed to be going to Nashville in June to see my favourite singer Daniel record a programme for PBS, I had my tickets and airflight tickets, then heard about the awful flooding in Nashville.
I don'tknow whether I am going or not at the moment.

Take care Ruby.

Grammy said...

Yvonne, Please don't let the flooding thing bother you. All the water will be long gone by the time you get there!

Rayna, thanks for the hints on how to do the links. I will try it, and if it doesn't I won't have lost anything, will I?

Deb, I will check you out.
Thanks to all of you for stopping by and commenting.
Best regards to all of you,

Grammy said...

Oh, that's okay, NF1. I haven't published a book yet, haven't even written one, but I might. You never know.

Patricia Stoltey said...

I enjoyed reading your answers a lot, Ruby. Boy, that chocolate sure shows up on a lot of lists, doesn't it? It sounds like you have a wonderful big family. Such a blessing. Until our first grandbaby showed up last year, our family was shrinking instead of growing. Things are looking up now. :)

I see a couple of blogs on your list I haven't visited yet, so I'm off to check them out.

Oh girlfriend, ya just have to try, try again on the linky thing. Persistence pays off, this Ozarks farm chick just keeps on tryin' till I figure the dang thing out. I'm subborn like that, I'm just that kinda gal. Heeehehehe! I loved mettin' ya'.

From the bloomin' hills and hollers of the Missouri Ponderosa, ya'll have a wonderfully blessed day!!!

Wanda said...

Enjoyed learning more about you Ruby. I wouldn't be surprised to learn that you become a published author. You're such a good storyteller.

arlee bird said...

I hope we run across each other in 5 years when we're both promoting our books.

We can have dinner and argue over who's going to pay the bill because we'll both insist on doing it since we'll have so much money from our book sales.

Enjoyed the answers.

Tossing It Out
