Share Your World 2016 – Week 19

Here are my answers to Cee’s Share Your World questions for this week.

You win a pet monkey but this isn’t just any old monkey. It can do one trick for you whenever you want from getting a pop out of the fridge to washing your hair. What would be the trick?

Hands down the very first thing that comes to mind:  Obscene hand gestures towards anyone he senses annoys me.

Hey, he’s a monkey! I can’t control him and he obviously doesn’t know any better 😀

What caring thing are you going to do for yourself today?

After supper go for a nice long walk to unwind, get some exercise, and clear my head.

What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?

I never really thought about it but if you look in my closet the colors you’ll see the most of by default are blue, gray, black and white.

I do have a couple of funky colored tropical shirts I like to wear in the summer, just to mix things up a bit but otherwise it’s mostly an occupational hazard I guess; you’ll usually find me wearing the colors of conservative business casual.

Complete this sentence:  When I travel I love to….

As much as possible, go beyond the beaten path, on foot, with my camera.

Because you don’t get shots like this from the visitors center parking lot:


Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

We spent a great mother’s day weekend with my Mom.

Next week the long term forecast says it’s safe to start planting some of the vegetable garden – that’s always one of my favorites times of the year.


Thanks for reading 🙂

    I liked the tall ridge with rock details like grains of wood, along with the waterfall, Norm. I also enjoyed what you would use a personal monkey for: obscene gestures or acting out with rude people “getting the brunt of it!” 🙂

    I enjoy getting to feel I know you better this way. Maybe you really are a grumpy old man, based on the monkey idea…I still don’t think so!

    I’m a spoil sport, I would teach the monkey to send kisses, rudness these days is a dime a dozen,
    and YOU are a softy

    Ooh! I love that photo of the falls!
    I smiled when you said you had some funky shirts to mix it up. I buy random purple or yellow shirts for The Mister, because when it comes to clothes, he shares the same color spectrum you and I do.
