Plinky asked, “o you have a favorite work of art?” No, I don’t have a favorite work of art. My favorite artist is a young lady named Katie Armistead, and I couldn’t possibly choose just one of her works as a favorite. Other than her work, I have several favorite artists, from the well-known ones like […]
Plinky said, “Pick a new pet to take home for free.” There’s no such thing as a free pet, as any responsible pet owner knows! Beyond the costs of housing and feeding the animal, you have to provide for health care such as preventive medication for heartworms and other parasites (for dogs and cats, at least), […]
Plinky asked, “About how many books do you read each year?” Last year is the first time I ever tried to track them, and I think it was 150+ according to GoodReads. I don’t know how to see the number again, right off. That was probably about average. I’ll probably read less this year because I’ve […]

Plinky asked,“Should coffee shops limit the amount of time that laptop users can occupy tables? Why or why not? What should the time limit be?” That depends on the coffee shop and its clientele. If a particular shop isn’t having a problem, why should it set a limit? As the saying goes, if it ain’t broke, […]
This is so cool. To honor National Poetry Month, there’s National Poetry Writing Month, which is providing daily poetry writing prompts for April. I immediately thought of Hope Evey. Because of this marvelous thing I’m seeing a poem a day from another lovely lady.
1) Good pizza for dinner 2) Living in an area where we can get a pizza delivered (that hasn’t always been the case) 3) Having the money to buy the pizza! 4) Good dinner company
Plinky asked, “Do you ever purchase lottery tickets? Have you ever won?” I don’t ever purchase them — never have, can’t imagine that I ever will. I agree with whoever called them “a tax on people who are bad at math.” I read somewhere that in one of the recent lotteries that reached some huge award […]
