Share Your World – May 22, 2017
What one thing have you not done that you really want to do?
On the top of my bucket list is a cross country train trip. I doubt this will ever happen unless I win the lottery or something. I know Amtrak used to offer a program for such a ride that allows you to get off and reboard within a given time frame. That would allow me to spend a day anywhere and then board the train again to sleep overnight. Again, all that takes money, some I’m sorely lacking in retirement.
How often do you get a haircut?
About once every 6 weeks. I’m due for one now but must wait until the cash is available.
In regards to puzzles what’s your choice: jigsaw, crossword, word search or numeric puzzles?
I’ve always preferred jigsaw puzzles simply because it doesn’t require a lot of calculating or figuring out math problems. Jigsaw puzzle idly while away the hours until it’s done. I used to turn my photographs into puzzles. Walgreens has always been available to do that. About a year ago I had one made of a local scenic spot that won in a calendar contest a few months later. It came in its own tin with the same photo on top. It was well appreciated by its recipient.
How many cities have you lived? You can share the number of physical residences and/or the number of cities.
15 —- Belleville, Il – O’Fallon, Il – St. Louis, MO – Ferguson, MO – St. Charles, MO – Montclair, NJ – Stockton, NJ – San Antonio, TX – Biloxi, MS – Goldsboro, NC – Aiken, SC – Graniteville, SC – Langley, SC – Beaverton, OR – Hillsboro, OR – Portland, OR – Uxbridge, MA
I’m sure I’m forgetting a few because I’ve moved so much in my life while crisscrossing the United States several times. I’ve had two 3200 mile moves in my life as well. I also lived in Kunsan,Korea, Ubon, Thailand and Misawa, Japan. I get around. 🙂
