such amazing revelations and scenes....

Busy busy busy day here today.  I have some awesome pics we took while walking yesterday morn, down the lane from our house, plus some eggcellent pots, but Mrs G had this quiz I answered....my responses here! What the heck.....


1) What is the most disgusting food you have ever put in your mouth?
BLEG! Whatta question! OK, as a vegetarian, the last time I can think of was my awesome mother-in-law, who has never quite grokked what a veg. is, dumped a bunch of mussels and scallops on my plate at a restaurant. I cannot imagine a more disgusting collection of food in my life, even if I was starving. I dumped them right back onto HER plate.
2) If you could magically play any muscial instrument, which one would it be?
DRUMS!!!!!! Anybody who has even seen me at a stoplight will hear the heavy metal on the radio and my magic fingers tapping away at the steering wheel with gusto! I know nothing of playing instruments, but that is my version of air guitar....
3) What song would you like played at your funeral?
Sh!t, forget having a funeral. I don't want one. I have told the wife, and really ought to get it down in a will, just have me cremated and dump my ashes anywhere convenient, like the back yard, don't pay much for it, and host a party with my triple chocolate cookies and a lot of Irish whiskey to go around.....a wee little wake! OH ALRIGHT, she can play Iggy Pop's tune "I wanna be your dog" http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbLRf0j80wU&feature=related or more recently http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zk6VmCgrj3M&feature=related
4) What are two things you would like to take back or do over in your life?
I wish i could go back and be nice to everybody I was ever rude to. All those people I say apologies to in my head at 3am. I can't think of anybody specific now that I am awake, though ;)
5) What celebrity have you been told you resemble at some point in your life?
Michael Keaton! "I'm BATMAN", a guy at the grocery store told me I look like treasury secretary Timothy Geitner, recently somebody said Steve Jobs (?) and somebody else 20 years told me Tom Hanks, but fuch it, I look like ME.
6) If you were a breed of dog, which breed would you be?
A beagle, noisy and loving! That's me!
7) What creature are you most afraid of?
I cannot say I like snakes much. Or bugs, like ticks. You won't see ME going off any trails or paths.
8) What movie made you cry your eyes out?
Last one, anyway, was Clooney in the DESCENDANTS, at the end, looking into his wife's ashes on the boat? Shoot, that was SAD.

Looking down at these pics, I am amazed how pretty the little brook is that goes through our neighbors yard....

The pigs are flying! :)

Wow, those spider webs tell me that fall is on its way.
