My boat's out of the water...


..and in a safe place. Thank you Sharba & Kevvy for making the big trip over here just to get it out of the water!

OttO had her rummage sale finally this weekend! Was able to get over there Sunday to help out. Not so sure she really needed me but we had a great visit! I think she did pretty well... getting rid of some big items and gaining space in the building where she had it all stored! I even came home with a few books - but she wouldn't let me pay for them... because we pretty much have a book exchange going in our family and this just made it easier for me to choose.

Had my Ranger detailed this weekend too! Otto's stepson did a beautiful job!!! It's something I've wanted done for years and now it's nice & clean - inside and out! It was my Christmas gift from Nat & Emilio & a great one! (My fault it happended so long after Christmas... not theirs! I had to get stuff out of it so he could clean it.)

D day (D for delivery) is approaching for my new carpet. I chose different colors than originally planned... and that's a good thing. I love the colors! They were special order and expected to arrive withing 10 days of ordering - around next Saturday. Guess I can then get another big bed. Do you realize how inconvenient a single bed is for a big adult? It's comfortable but I can't roll over in it without waking myself up!

Okay... here's my Monday Madness:

More great questions from our fellow Monday Madness members! Have fun, and thank you all for playing, and for the questions!! Have a great week! =)

1. From amaranth:
Name three people you would pick (and why) if you could choose who to be stranded on a deserted island with.
Wow! Tough one - haven't thought about since much younger years... Tony Bennet for art & music, John Lithgow for humor and Brian Williams from NBC News - for mental stimulation... ;-)

2. From julie:
What is your favorite genre of film and what is your favorite movie from that genre?
Old fashioned musical extravaganzas like 'Oklahoma' and 'Sound of Music' are always fun... my all-time favorite is 'Fiddler on the Roof.'

3. From tiffany:
Which country would you like to visit and why?
Hmmm. No big desire to go so far because there is so much I have not yet seen in the United States... but I guess Mexico might be fun because we share the continent and I've been to Canada several times.

4. From wil:
What are you driving these days? What's it's (their) good and bad points? Would you buy another one, and why or why not?
I drive a 1998 Ford Ranger 4x4 pickup truck with a cap. It is a stick shift and everything else is 'power' so it's economical on gas. I would buy another but my next vehicle will be a small SUV - most likely the Ford Escape and still 4x4. It's a good idea here in Michigan. The only thing I don't like about my Ranger is there is only room for one passenger... unless they are very small adults or children... because the extended cab just has tiny 'jump benches' for sitting. The Chevvy van was Frank's & it's a gas hog. I use it only to take the boat in and out of the water...

5. From cindy swanson:
"Lost," "24," or both?
I've not watched '24' but I might begin... I've been hooked on 'Lost' ever since it began!

6. From lady starlight:
You've been very good this year. What should Santa bring you for Christmas? (the sky is the limit)
Santa, I sure would like to have a new bank account with a few million dollars in it... collecting interest of course!!!

Comments:
Musicals are wonderful. My favorite is Man of La Mancha.

Have a Happy!
 
Great list. :) Super idea for a Christmas present to ask for! :D Musicals are great - we did Fiddler on the Roof and Sound of Music when I was in high school.

Have a good week. :)
 
My mom and I watched 'Sound of Music' every Easter for years, so now it's one of my sentimental favorites. :) Thanks for stopping by my blog for MM!
 
Musicals are great. And a few million dollars sure would come in handy.

Thanks for visiting! Have a happy MM.
 
A few million dollar would be great to own ;D

BTW, thanks for your lovely visit and comment.

It's just, I was kinda surprised to find someone exactly like me: have soooo many blogs. :D Been visiting some of yours, surely will visit more.
 
I love it that you drive a stick shift. I drove one briefly years ago and HATED it. I guess I am just not as hip as you!
Thanks for stopping by 'yor mommmeeeee"!
That is very odd to me too. How did that happen!!??
 
Great answers! Hey, when the sky's the limit, why not go for broke?? =)

We had a very successful AND fun weekend, Mom. Thanks for your help; and yes, you were a help.

Love you! (I got my dress!!)
 
Enjoyed your answers! Love ya!
 
Hi Sherle. I will never get tired of watching Sound of Music. It's a well loved classic.

Take care,
Rach
