1. Americans will celebrate Labor Day this coming weekend. Do you know what we're actually celebrating? (without consulting your friends google or wikipedia, ahem) What's a project you're currently 'laboring' over?

I think it has to do with the Labor force and working for a living but I really do not know have not ever looked it up.
 
Right now I am laboring over my Master's degree in nursing. Must get this done by October of next year. Then I an thinking I may get somemore education after that.

2. Labor Day also signifies the unofficial end of summer for most of us...what summer food will you miss the most? If you live in the Southern hemisphere feel free to substitute winter for summer.
 
Fresh strawberries!! peaches that are so juicy that the juice drans down your face as you eat them! MMM!!


 
3. A well known proverb states, "It's easier to seek forgiveness than ask permission." Your thoughts?

Forgiveness. That is something now. I think it is easier to ask permission. Asking permission does not let anyone into my closed off area. I just ask and move on. Seeking forgiveness makes me feel vulnerable.

4. Food critic, film critic, art critic, book critic...which hat would you most like to wear?
 
I think food!

5. When you were a kid, (besides your parents) who was your favorite adult?

I do not remember much of my childhood. But I am thinking my grand mother just because.
 

6. The astronaut Neil Armstrong passed away last week. He was regarded as a hero by many generations of people all around the world. Do we still have modern day heroes? What makes someone a hero?

 We do still have modern day heroes.  Police, Firemen and women, Soilders, doctors, nurses, teachers. All of whom are heroes to someone at some time in their careers.

7. I never get tired of __________________.

Hodge Podge Wednesday! In fact I look forward to it.

8. Insert your own random thought here.

 
Last Thursday, I came home home to find out Tia had died in the front yard while I was running errands. She was 13 years old! She was my husband's hunting dog and he refered to us (me and the dog) as his girls. My hubby was broken!! Tia went every where with him! It was hard for me too and still is even though our house was not noisy because of her it feels so much more quiet! and empty!
We burried her in our back yard Thursday night.
I had a dream just last night that I was petting her.... then I saw my daughter (in the dream) ...I asked her if it was real and Tia was really gone. She told me she was and I woke up.
Part of me wants  to go to the pound and get another dog today........part of me never wants another one...

So very sorry about your dog. That is hard. I understand the feeling of wanting and not wanting. In the end I feel like a dog fills a space in the house that needs to be filled. I'm sure you'll know when the time is right.

Aww, I'm so sorry for your loss! It is a hard thing to lose a pet that is such a good companion. Peaches are my favorite - it is hard to find good ones where I live, but when they are good - Oh, wow! I could just eat a bushel of them!
