Friday's Feast #30

Describe a toy you remember from your childhood.

When I was about seven years old, I went to the San Diego Wild Animal Park with my parents, brother, and my Uncle Frank, Aunt Mary, and cousins (Zoey and the Furballs' momma and Gus 'n Perla's momma). While in the gift shop, I found a palm-sized stuffed green tortoise. He was about $3.00 and in my seven year old life, that was my allowance money for weeks! I must have stood there in the store for fifteen minutes mentally deliberating over my purchase.

I still have that stuffed tortoise nearly thirty-three years later.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you?

I'm selectively observant. When I want to be, I'm about an eight.

Where would you rather be at this very moment?

Jedediah Smith campground near Crescent City, CA. The smell of the redwoods and the sound of rushing water are a balm for my soul. The temperature would be far cooler than it is right now and I'd be smelling campfires. And if I were really lucky, the fog would start rolling in or there'd be rain.

Main Course
When was the last time you learned something new?

I learn new things every day and not necessarily things that I would want to know. Today, I learned that it's really stupid to drink a large soda at a movie theatre while watching a long-ish movie like "Transformers" ... I had SERIOUS coolant issues by the end credits!

Fill in the blank: I have ____________ but I haven’t ____________.

I have purchased a bunch of Harlan Coben thrillers (the Myron Bolitar series), but I haven't got enough hours in a day to read them all.

We've heard of Jedediah Smith Park--our dad camped there some years a go and raved about it. He said it was like being in a primeval forest. He promised to take Mom there some day. Redwoods have such a fresh earthy smell. Mom and Dad did camp at Humboldt along the Avenue of the Giants back in 2002.
