It’s time for the latest round of Share Your World from Cee’s Photography.

Here are Cee’s questions for this week:

If you were given a boat or yacht today, what would you name it? (You can always sell the yacht later)

That’s an interesting question.  We have a boat, but it’s not officially named, as in the name painted on the back.  We don’t dock it anywhere and simply tow it to wherever we decide to go.

It’s a Mako fishing boat, but we use it for tubing and cruising around too.

My father-in-law used to have a cabin cruiser, and it’s name was FUBAR.

I’d hate to be unoriginal, but I love that name, so I’d likely steal his material on that one.

Which of Snow White’s 7 dwarfs describes you best? (Doc, Happy, Bashful, Sleepy, Sneezy, Grumpy, Dopey) Plus what would the 8th dwarf’s name be?

I’m a combo of Bashful, Happy, and Dopey, I’d say.  If that were the case, the 8th one would be something like Bappey or Hopey.

Name a song or two which are included on the soundtrack to your life?

Oh lord, Cee!  Only two?!?  Man, I’m not sure I could narrow it down, and different periods of my life have a soundtrack unique to that particular time.  But, two that are for sure on that soundtrack would be:

“Come Monday” by Jimmy Buffett

and:

“Give Me One Reason” by Tracy Chapman

Both are for purely sentimental reasons associated with meeting, and falling in love, with my wife.  Since that is the most pivotal move I’ve ever made, they’re definitely in.

Complete this sentence: I like watching…

…lots of things.  But, not much TV.  I love watching live music, my kids laughing and having fun, college football games from a stadium, sunsets, sunrises, storms roll in, the line at the end of a fishing pole, rapids tear through a gorge from a kayak, my kids while they sleep, the ocean, the Sound, the stars.  I could go on, and on, and on.

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

I’m thankful Hermine didn’t cause more damage and loss of life than it unfortunately did.  And, I’m thankful that my in-laws were spared any significant damage.

In the coming week, I’m looking forward to celebrating my wife’s birthday, which happens to be the unofficially official beginning of us, way back in 1992, 24 years ago.  I have two good reasons to remember that date.

 

My my songs of the day are:

“Give Me One Reason” by Tracy Chapman

“A Boat Lies Waiting” by David Gilmour

“Birthday” by The Beatles

“I Think She Likes Me” by Treat Her Right

“Champagne and Reefer” by Muddy Waters

“Possess Your Heart” by Death Cab For Cutie

“If I Had A Boat” by Lyle Lovett

“Come Monday” by Jimmy Buffett

  3. Ya know, I just posted my own share your world, but I forgot to mention one thing I’m grateful for. It’s men like you! The love that you have for your wife and family is truly inspiring. Picking just two songs stumped me too, but I’m totally on board with your choices!

  4. Ohhh, I like the yacht question! I was just pinning pics of luxury yachts on my pinterest board last night because at some point in this life, I’m going to own one. I might name her Ava. Sometimes I have these random moments where I think I’d name a daughter that if I had another one. I scrapped that idea so yacht it is! Also, ‘Give Me One Reason’ by Tracy Chapman used to be one of my favorite songs. I actually forgot about it, so thanks!
