Monday Meme

*Happy Memorial Day!*
*****
I didn't really have anything to talk about today so I'm doing a Monday Meme instead.

1.  If you could have any job in the world, what would it be?


Honestly, I don't know!  I can't even decide on a major.  I used to think that I wanted to work for a title company, but could never get hired on with one.  Sometimes I think I want a government job, one where I can help people.

2.  Do you regift the items you receive that you don't like?


Sometimes!  I used to do it regularly, but then I always worried that I would give someone their gift back accidentally or that the person who gave it to me would ask to see it.  I don't do it as much anymore.  Do you regift?

3.  Would you rather eat a stick of butter or snort a tablespoon of salt?


Neither one, really!  lol  But if I have to choose one over the other, I'd go with the stick of butter.  It doesn't specify that I can't spread on bread or crackers, so that's exactly what I'd do.

4.  Show and tell.  What comes to mind first when you see this picture?  Or, tell a story if it reminds you of one.  
I never met my mom's mom (my grandmother passed away when my mom was a teenager.)  I guess they used to can a lot before my grandmother got sick.  When I look at this, it's what I would imagine their pantry to look like once they were done.  My mom didn't can when I was a kid, so this certainly doesn't look like any of our pantries over the years!  

It also reminds me of Y2K.  I went to a friend's house for a visit in 1999 and they had a whole spare room filled with foods and bottled waters.  His parents, the mom especially, were both super nervous about the year 2000.  I always wondered what they did with all that food once they realized that things weren't going to change.

Don't furget my annual Doggone Dog Swap!  You only have a few days left to join if you don't want to miss out on all of the fun.

What a strange question number three is, LOL.
My granny had lots of preserves too, my grandad used to grow all their veggies and had hens for eggs and chicken. They lived a much healthier life in those days.

Hi,

Opps.....Mommy just found out that the link on our post today wasn't working. Silly woman didn't copy and past it right. It's fixed now if you wanna come back and see it. It is too cute!!

Sniff ya later......Weenie

PS....Mommy said that picture reminded her of how her grandmother used to can boiled chicken every summer. She's got a fantastic story about that. Maybe someday she'll do a post about it.

Hope you had a gooed Memorial Day. The photo of the preserves has such a cozy feel.

Butter on saltines is the best!!

Salt or butter, ugh! I am still sad I can't participate in the dog swap, but hopefully next year.

Your pal, Pip
