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


Here are her questions for the week:

Is it better to suspect something (bad or hurtful) and not know or to have your worst fears confirmed by sure knowledge?

Both kinda suck, but the unknown is worse.   If I had to choose, I’d want to know for certain.

What makes you laugh aloud?   Crack up?   Laugh until your sides split?   When was the last time you had a great big belly laugh?

I laugh all the time.  My wife cracks me up, and is as dry and twisted as I am.  My boys are hilarious knuckleheads, and I have a long-term resident, and periodic therapy patient, at my facility who is a favorite.  I have a couple of friends that crack me up regularly too.  So, I guess my answer would be that people are what make me belly laugh.  All the time.

Do you suppose Noah had woodpeckers in the ark?  If he did, where did he keep them?   Apologies to the Darwinians in the crowd…this is merely for fun, okay?

Well, if the tale is to be believed, I suppose the pair of woodpeckers would have been on board.  Being that it was made completely of wood, I’d imagine they made their way all around the ark.  It’s like a woodpecker buffet.

Why is “Charlie” short for “Charles when they are the same number of letters?

I don’t have a clue.  Better yet, why is Dick short for Richard?  That one makes no sense whatsoever.

What  happened in your world this past week that made you feel thankful, joyful or grateful?

School year ended, twins “graduated” from middle school, and we left to head south for a week immediately after the reception at school.


My songs of the day are:

”A Pair Of Brown Eyes” by The Pogues

”Short Change” by The Spencer Davis Group

”Do I Wanna Know?” by Arctic Monkeys

“I Don’t Want To Go To School” by The Naked Brothers Band

”Ain’t Love Funny” by JJ Cale

”Three Of A Perfect Pair” by King Crimson

“Short And Sweet” by Bobby Bare

”You Don’t Know How It Feels” by Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
