It's a Great Hodgepodge, Charlie Brown

 Today being the 7th of October, I will limit my answers to 7 words. 
Think I can? 

1. It's October so let's get this out there first thing...have you jumped on the all-things-pumpkin bandwagon? How so?

Yes. Bought pumpkin coffee creamer and pie. 

2.  "We have more power than will; and it is often by way of excuse to ourselves that we fancy things are impossible." Francois Duc De la Rochefoucauld  

What's something you once thought impossible, but in hindsight see as more a matter of lack of will?

Reacting calmly to my teenager's "hot flashes."

3. The rose is America's National Flower, but every state also has its own (click hereto see the list). Are you happy with yours? If you were in charge what would youdeclare your state's flower? If you're outside the U.S. what bloom would you like to see labeled as your country's national flower?

Love Maryland's Black-eyed Susan. Happy, hardy perennial. 

4. What have you lost interest in recently?

Gardening. I simply don't "dig it" anymore.

5. In your opinion, who's the best living musician?

Phil Keaggy. The  guitarist has phenomenal talent.

6. S'mores-love 'em or no? Ever make them indoors? Last time you sat around an outdoor fire? Are making s'mores and sitting round a fire pit on your autumn bucket list? Do you have an autumn bucket list?

Like. No. New Year's Eve, 2010. No.

7. Your favorite small town? Why?

Alden ,Kansas. Best part of childhood there.   

8. Insert your own random thought here.

Meet Manny, my son's mini Goldendoodle puppy.

Oh how I empathize on the teenager thing. ;)

I love Black Eyed Susans but the rabbits used to chow down on them as soon as they bloomed. So disappointing! The puppy!!! Adorable!!!

I missed your humor this week, but admire your ability to keep your answers short and sweet. I trust the humor and long discourses aren't a thing of the past because I have a feeling the S & S answers aren't exactly you. So, praying that whatever is going on will not last and the YOU I so enjoy will be back soon.
