Share Your World: 2016 Week 49

Time for this week’s Share Your World from Cee’s Photography.

Here are Cee’s questions for the week:

What do you value most in a friendship?

I only have a handful of really close, true friends.  Those 3-5 people know everything about me, have been through years of highs and lows with me, and we’ve all sorta grown up together, from our idiocy-days in our 20’s through all of us becoming “upstanding” and “responsible” (to a degree) adults with jobs and homes, and some of us families.  I’d trust any of them with my life, or my kids’ lives.  Trust.  That’s what I value most.

Do you prefer eating the frosting of the cake or the cupcake first? Do you prefer a specific flavor?

When I see a cupcake, I just eat it.  Generally in 3 bites or less.  I like the combo of both the cake and the icing.  Of course, I’m not above taking a swipe of icing with a finger either.

Have you ever been in a submarine? If you haven’t, would you want to?

I have, a couple of times.  There’s one on display in Mobile, AL at Battleship Park.  It’s a WWII era sub, and it is being restored.  Even has the painted Japanese flags on the side of the bridge, representing a ships they’d sunk in battle.  It’s amazing how tight those quarters were.  To me, that’s the ultimate in faith, to go hundreds of feet into the deep in a metal tube, all the while being hunted and attacked by an enemy.

Went on another at Battery Park in Charleston, SC when I was a kid.  I believe it was only there temporarily.

If 100 people your age were chosen at random, how many do you think you’d find leading a more satisfying life than yours?

I have no idea.  I will say this: I’m very happy and yes, satisfied, with where we are in our lives right now.  Is it where I thought I’d be if you’d have asked me at 20?  Probably not.  But plans change and different roads are travelled.  I’m blessed, and happy.  I’m sure there are others that are too within that 100 people.  Unfortunately though, I’d imagine there are more who aren’t satisfied than that are.

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

Well, I’m grateful my wife is home, and that the holidays are going smoothly.  We aren’t done yet, but close, with gifting.

In the next week, I’m looking forward to increasing temperatures.  Granted, it’s only going to be up in the 40’s but that’s a hell of a lot better than the 20’s and teens we’ve had the past week.  Can I just say, I do NOT like winter….at all!
