Share Your World – Week 8

share-your-world2Share Your World is a weekly challenge hosted by my spouse, Cee, at her photography blog. She started Share Your World years ago when she was running a number of challenges on a photography site similar to WordPress.  The majority of photographers are introverts, and they needed a way to get to know each other.  You don’t have to be a photographer to participate, though.  Grab the questions and give us your answers.

Here are the questions for this week:

Would you rather be given $10,000 for your own use or $100,000 to give anonymously to strangers?

Normally, I’d like to have the big wad to give away, but today I’m feeling more like the $10,000 for me.  Maybe it’s the rainy winter weather, but I’d like to have the money to get our front and back yards (gardens) done.  I would get the landscaping people in to put the irrigation system in place, create a retaining wall in front where it slopes down quickly, put in the walking paths and then start planting the big trees.  I feel like I’m ready for things to come alive.

When you’re 90 years old, what will matter most to you?

I’ll be too amazed knowing I made it that far to answer that question.  I want to be of sound mind and body, and have Cee by my side enjoying it all.

Candy factories of the entire world have become one and will now be making only one kind of candy. Which kind, if you were calling the shots?smoothie

That’s a hard one.  No chocolate.  My favorite candy is made by Boyer and is called a Smoothie.  It’s a peanut butter cup that is covered in a thin butterscotch instead of chocolate.  The peanut butter inside is crunchy.  Yum.  I also like maple sugar candy, and most things with nuts or coconut.

Thinking of a Smoothie made me so hungry for them that I ordered a box.  They are made by a little company in Pennsylvania near where I grew up and I can’t get them out here, 3000 miles away.  Writing about them made me homesick, so I looked them up and Boyer is still making them, half a century after I was a little kid.  Amazing in this day of mega-companies.  I’ll just pay for them out of my $10,000.

So, you’re on your way out and it’s raining. Do you know where your umbrella is or do you frantically search for it all over your apartment/house?

Raining?  I live in the Pacific Northwest where it rains nine months out of the year.  We don’t need umbrellas.  We know two truths:  we will dry out and we will get wet all over again, so what’s the use.  Pull the hood up on your windbreaker and make a dash for it.  You won’t melt.

    • They are absolutely delish! They are called “smoothie” because the flavor is so smooth. The taste of the peanut butter comes out. I find that chocolate covered ones lose a lot of the PB taste.

  2. $10,000, please, to leave to my daughter. Soft-centered(preferably almond) dark chocolate candy. My main concern as I age is my health. I carry an umbrella in my car. Since, unfortunately, it does not rain much in Southern California, it stays where it is. When it does rain, I’d rather make a dash for it and feel that rare rain in my face.

  5. I had forgotten about Smoothies! I’m from W.Va. originally and remember having them as a kid, but I don’t know if I could have told you what flavor they were. How cool that they’re still available.
