Cee’s Share Your World-2016 Week 11

I’ve seen these prompts before from Cee, but have never taken part in one.  My hold up was the fact that I don’t really let people in, until I know them, trust them, and like them.  I’ve been doin’ this a while now, and that trust is building.  And I really like y’all, so here I am.

Below are the questions put forth by Cee, who, by the way, has a great site.  Loads of photographs, tips, and awesomely fun photo challenges, which, I have to admit, I’ve become a bit addicted to participating in.  Check her out!

So, anyway:

1. How many siblings do you have? What’s the order?

None, unfortunately.  I’m an only child, raised by a single mom.

2. In a car, would you rather drive or be a passenger?

This is an easy one: Drive, without question!

3. When you lose electricity, do you light candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you have?

Well, my wife is a candle-holic, so we certainly use them, and have tons of them.  I use flashlights, or headlamp types in particular.  We live in a rural environment with no outside lights, minus some landscape lighting and porch lights.  But when we lose power, I couldn’t see my hand in front of my face outside.  In my world, flashlights are a must.

4. List at least 5 of your favorite animals (any animal to domestic to wild to marine).

Pelican, jellyfish, red-tail hawk, dolphin, and, best animal ever, a dog.

5. Bonus Question:

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

Well, last week was one of “those” weeks for me.  I questioned my career choice, the will of the universe, and my faith in a higher being.  I was knocked off center.  I’m grateful for my wife, my boys, my friends, and many of you, for helping me gain perspective and get back between those navigational beacons.

As for what I’m looking forward to from this week, it’s finalizing plans for the next trip we’re taking, at the start of April.  It’s close enough now that I can taste it…and lord knows I need it!

My songs of the day are:

Protection” by Lucinda Williams

But Enough On That For Now” by Vandeveer

Love And Trust” by Mavis Staples

Mental Floss” by Jimmy Buffet
