Share Your World: October 8, 2018

Time for this week’s Share Your World from Sparks From A Combustible Mind.


Here are her questions for this week:

Do you prefer Apple (‘I’ products) or Android for your technology ‘fix’?   

I don’t know that I have a preference per se, but I use an iPhone and an iPad.  But, that’s not by my choice, particularly.  I get my phones as hand-me-downs, when my wife gets her upgrades.  The iPad was a Fathers Day gift years ago.

What’s something on your personal bucket list? 

Taking the boys to Europe, travelling around Africa, travelling around Australia, living on Ocracoke…..for starters.

What would you name your boat if you had one?   The Unsinkable 3? The Please Don’t Sink? Your choice! Also, what would it look like? Do you want a motor yacht, a sailboat, or perhaps a dinghy?

I have one.  She’s no yacht, but she’s fun and gets us on the water, great for fishing, and fast enough to pull a tube or ski.

Her name is FUBAR.  It’s a long story.

Which fictional character would be the most boring to meet in real life? 

Wilson from Castaway.

And finally: 

What brought gratitude, a smile or laughter to your life this week?

My kids.  They crack me up daily, and the older they get, the funnier they get.  I truly, viscerally, miss them being little.  They were so cute, so cuddly, so wide-eyed.  But they’re pretty fun at this stage too.


My songs of the day are:

“Boring” by Jukebox The Ghost

”Pisces Apple Lady” by Leon Russell

”Get On The Boat” by Prince

”Wilson” by Phish

”Bored In The USA” by Father John Misty

”Rotten Apple” by Alice In Chains

”If I Had A Boat” by Lyle Lovett

”William Wilson” by The Smithereens

  1. Excellent answers, S. I love the pictures and the boat name. Military ref by any chance? I use that word once in a while. ; ) We have snow, roads closed and 17 degrees, power outages last night, actual blackouts in the whole area! : )

  2. I have to fully agree… Wilson gets the prize for the most boring ‘character’. Never did say much, did he? 😉 And Fubar? Well I know what I think that stands for, was a fan of Sylvester Stallone and Kurt Russell in that not very well known film from the mid 80s (early 90s?) about the two cops. And yes, I’ve used ‘Fubar” a time or two myself…I hope the boat didn’t show up that way…. Great musical choices too! Thanks for sharing your world! 😀

  5. Fubar? Hehehe guess I’d better go google that 😂


  6. Great pictures and answers. We called our boat MY TURN, because the kids kept saying, My Turn to ski, to drive, to do pretty much EVERYTHING. LOL I get hand me downs from my daughter so I have Apple products as well. Except for my computer, that Mac I bought myself. I think Wilson was a great choice. Bravo.

  9. Beautiful photos. Apple products are the best. Giving a boat a name? Hmmm …. giving a boat an island, water way or tropical fruit name may be interesting.. (-:
