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.
