Here’s an Unrelated photo of my Ukulele, so you can all agree, I know at least two words that start with U.
Of course I can play it. Anyone can play the ukulele. Oh, like make music on it? Not so much, no. Chord strum, same chord strum, strum, strum, strum.
You know, most people think of the ukulele as a Hawaiian instrument, but it originated in Portugal. Mine’s a Portuguese baritone. Saucy.
When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?
Pen. Fat pens, good for my stupid, arthritic hands. I’ll show you my favorite pens, but don’t you dare try to use them. I’m pen-stingy.
The kitty pen is handmade by True and represents my beloved Felicity, RIP.
The blue pen is from my mother, and it’s my travel pen. It’s also a replacement pen because The Mister broke and fixed the first one right into ruin. I forgive him, but I just don’t like other people using my special pens. If we’re out somewhere, you need to have your own damn pen.
Like Cee, I also like Zebra SARASA pens.
I think the best pens are the ones drug reps give to doctors’ offices. For years, my travel pen was a VIOXX ad. I realize that’s funny ironic, but I’m just sayin, it was a nice thick pen, and while I don’t troll the hospital looking for fat pens, I’m not above asking the receptionist, “MayIkeepthispen?Thanks.”
What’s your choice: jigsaw, word, maze or numeric puzzles?
Crosswords! And yes, I do crosswords with a pen.
I like jigsaw and 3-D puzzles, but not near as much as crosswords. One of my favorite things to do is to sit at the table and work a crossword puzzle. Lil classical music, lil rain pattering from the open window, big ol cuppa coffee — That’s good stuff!
Do you prefer long hair or short hair for yourself?
I prefer long hair. After the traumatically bad haircut of 2009, I have vowed never to have my hair cut above my shoulders ever again. Never ever.
List some of your favorite blogs.
I’m squirming, because I hate exclusion. I read tons of blogs in the course of a day.

Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?
This last week I am most grateful for my husband. I’m also grateful for cooler days, a three-day weekend, the return of goat cheese & spinach pizza at Aldi, and new, better health insurance.
This week coming up doesn’t seem too busy. Moo has a performance on Saturday, but other than that, it should just be same ol same ol. Of course, I said that last week, and last week was filled with pleasant surprises, so you never can tell!
