* Goin’ low

Thank you, Cee, for your weekly Share Your World challenge.  And thanks for all the amazing photography that graces your site!  Here are my answers to this week’s challenge:

Would you prefer to receive a unicycle, bicycle, tricycle or motorcycle?  I passed a guy on a unicycle today and remembered my fond dreams of successfully riding one in a circus.  After multiple concussions and broken bones on 4-legged animals and in cars, I think I will stick with a tricycle.  Low to the ground is how I go- until I get to heaven.

What is one thing you’d like to accomplish this year?  It would be awesome if I could blog consistently!  My body has been uncooperative for a while and when I’m ailing, my mind sounds like I’m grinding the clutch in there.  If you’ve never ground the gears on a manual drive, you don’t know what you’re missing!

What was one of the highlights of 2016 for you?  My dearest teaching widower and I have shared some wonderful moments with family: our son and his wife, my sister and her husband, and our nephews and nieces.  All those meals and movie nights blend into a single warm, fuzzy memory.  That may not be a good sign.  I might need transmission fluid.

Would you prefer to fly a kite or fly in a hot air balloon?  Think low.  Years ago, my widower and I were driving through the Napa Valley in California when we caught sight of a hot air balloon zooming to the ground.  We parked and ran across the field, terrified at what we might find.  The basket was upright and a smiling threesome were sorting lines and flames and ballasts.  Maybe it’s not as dangerous as it looks.  Still, I think I’ll stay low.

  1. After a nasty bout of Labrhitus, six weeks of impromptu world shifting and sporadic falling from floors… go figure!
    Unalnable to move my head faster than the shaddow from the apple tree in winter, or drive for two months. Keeping low sounds good to me. 😇 happy 2017.
