Dawn's Meme

Only doing this meme because Dawn  Carpe Diem - Seize the Day asked me to. I feel guilty reading her journal and not replying more often.

Don't expect too much of my journal. I am retired and really do not have time to post on a recurring basis.



1: Grab the book nearest to you, turn to page 29, find paragraph/line 9:"some of us volunteered to fight for the Union. Some came in mainly because we were bored at home and this looled like it might be fun."

The Killer Angles, Michael Sharra. Great book about the three day battle at Gettysburg in the Civil war. I am a CW buff.

2: Stretch your left arm out as far as you can. What do you touch first: 

To the left the window, to the front the computer screen.

3: What is the last thing you watched on TV?:

Rerun of Regis and Kellie

4: WITHOUT LOOKING, guess what the time is: 1:35PM

5: Now look at the clock, what is the actual time?: 1:45PM

6: With the exception of the computer, what can you hear?:

Nothing the radio cycled off, it does every hour so I can keep track of my unexciting day.
Wife and dog went shopping. Nice and quite in here.
7: When did you last step outside?

An hour ago to go to my son's house to pick up mail. It was windy and cold in the Philly burbs.

8: Before you came to your journal, what was the last website you looked at?

a survey on gas usage for heating and cooking in a home.
9: What are you wearing?:

Kahki pants, golf shirt, long sleeve fleece type pull over with a zipper, white untied sneakers.

10: Did you dream last night?

Yes.  A horrible nightmare where I killed or somebody killed my neighbor and I had him in my arms. I moved and have not seen this guy in ten years. Strange.

11: When did you last laugh?

Probably on Monday when my son paniced when I approached an alligator, eight foot long, who was sunning himself on a pond on a the Ocean Course on Kiawah Island in SC. I was determined to get my ball and he is afraid of alligators. Wasn't able to get a picture of the gator. Great golf course and I really enjoyed the round.
12: What is on the walls of the room you are in?:

An AOL disc in a frame that was sent to me, as a Community Leader, by AOL when they reached ten million members in Nov. 1997. Hard to believe. Several pictures and a crucifix over the bed. Computer is in my bedroom and when I look out the window I see the 6 th green of the golf course. 

13: Seen anything weird lately?:

The alligator as above. 

14: Name a song that defines you right now, today, this hour:

"Old Man River"
15: In three sentences or less, why do you blog?:

I don't really blog since I am lazy and would rather be golfing or reading. A lot of my reading is now other blogs. I am addicted to them and hope some day to get over it. I do spend five or six hours on the computer every day. At least two hours just playing Tiger Woods 007 computer golf.
16: If you became a multi-millionaire overnight, what would you buy first?:

A trip on an Ocean Liner around the world with my family and friends. Have done many cruises but I picture a trip with most of the people who are near and dear to me would top them all.

If I had enough I would buy the ship or the Cruise Ship line. If I could convince my wife I would live on a liner all the time and just keep sailing.

Well that's it for me. Hard for me to admit it but I enjoyed doing this. It was even good for my stiff fingers. Have a great weekend and you do this meme leave me a link, thanks Bill
