You'll be glad - well, some of you will - to know that all the snow melted away at the first ray of sun.  It was all gone about four hours after I took the photo.  So, now it really feels like spring and I'm happy to be heading over to Patrice's porch for a chat.  Let's go...

What's your favorite clock- digital or an old fashioned face with hands?  I like a clock with a face.  Is that old-fashioned?  It's just friendlier and, usually, more decorative. 

What's your favorite type of bird?  No contest:  the red-wing blackbird.  And since I love almost all birds that is high praise.  I love hearing its spring song - it touches something very deep inside me.  .  Hearing that music in the field means spring is definitely here to stay. And everyone knows that spring is my favorite season.  Right?

How do you feel about being in front of people? This could include meetings, speeches, performing, or just saying something at a party.   When I was about six, my mother decided that my 'talent' would be reciting poems.  I did this for several years back in the day when schools put on this kind of performance.  Back then, I always wished that I could play an instrument, dance or even sing -  this was such a weird thing to do.  Either that or I hoped that the stage would open up and swallow me.  However, these experiences prepared me for standing up in front of people and saying, well, almost anything.  Which I have been doing for most of my adult life.  It seems that I just gravitate to the volunteer jobs where you get to be up long as I have the microphone in my hand, I'm good.  

What's the last item of clothing that you purchased?  Jammies: my favorite outfit.

Please give me a caption or a Wendell quote for this picture.  "How's a chicken-chasing horse supposed to ignore this? 

If you want to see the photo to go with the caption, just hop over to the farmhouse porch at Everyday Rurality.  You can join in the chat, too.  Thanks, Patrice - and Wendell.

I think clocks with hands are much prettier than the digital versions, but if I'm in a hurry I prefer the digital because it's faster to read.

So does that mean you have lots of poetry committed to memory? Oh I love that, My kids do because we would do that lots but about all I still have memorized is nursery rhymes and lyrics for rock music.
Yes, I believe I love new jammies the best.
I like the red winged black bird but we don't get many of them here.
Have a great week!

I just LOVE poetry and am so glad that my daughters are learning to memorize and recite through our home school curricula. I must admit that I LOL at your caption ... chicken-chasing horse! This really tickled my funny bone! : )

Nice to meet you and get to know you a little! Have a blessed week.

In Him ~

I agree about clocks, unless it's the middle of the night and I'm trying to see across the room. :) I don't think I'd know that bird's song if I heard it. I, generally, don't know the different songs. I do like to hear the happy songs though.Great Wendell quote! Have a super week!

I'd have had stage fright at that age, too.

I agree about the clocks and even change the clocks on my smartphones to faces instead of digital images.

Hahahahahaha! Love your caption for the picture. I have never liked speaking in front of people- I would make myself nearly sick thinking about it!
