friday5: A toy gun? Really? That ain't no toy.

Friday 5 for January 15: SW: TFA

Hello, and welcome to this week’s Friday 5. Please copy these questions to your webspace. Answer the questions there; then leave a comment below so we’ll all know where to check out your responses. Please don’t forget to link us from your website!
PS from the Z Blogger:  The link back to the "Mother ship"  is HERE.  *wink

(inspired by a certain movie I finally saw, with no spoilers)

When did you last wear a lei (or something similar)?
Thinking...tic toc, tic toc.. and the answer is... never.

What are your thoughts on organically grown produce?
My thoughts are that everyone, but especially the children, should ever eat anything else.  The reason is that it's best for them and for Mother Earth. 

Which Goldie Hawn movies have you seen?
"Overboard", "First Wive's Club","Death Becomes Her", and "Housesitter", "Shampoo",and, "The Out-of-Towners".

What’s something you’ve recently and reluctantly flown solo on?
Flown solo?  Well, I'm not a pilot so, the answer is, nothing.

What experience do you have with BB or pellet guns?
BB guns: I owned one as a child, and so did my brother.  
One like this new commemorative one.

My cousin was blinded in one eye by a friend's beebee gunshot when he was 11 or 12 years old. 

Also, the ignorant neighbors used to shoot birds out of the honeysuckle and off the telephone wires- in our urban neighborhood - with one, Grrrrrrr!

Pellet guns I've never had any contact with one,good or bad.  Personally, I don't like either one of them, because kids who have no training or any sort of instruction just don't understand that they both can be so dangerous.

Wow, I just googled this for an image, and it's all over the place...Wowzer!  

Thanks for participating, and I have a bad feeling about this!

At first it was unclear why you would have a bad feeling about this friday five.  Now I know!

Even though I liked my BB Gun, and the Savage .22 that replaced it, I really never would have let one of my kids haveeither weapon.  My poor cousin was reason enough, but a parent could end up losing the house in a lawsuit, I reckon.


  1. try googling "i have a bad feeling about this" or searching that phrase on youtube. :) it's a quote from the movie that inspired this week's questions.

  2. Your first sentence was dead on (no pun intended) No guns, not even pellet guns or paint guns, are toys. They are weapons and need to be treated with respect and responsibility. My children did have pellet guns. They were allowed to shoot them with their father at a target. They were taught at a very young age about gun safety because our house (both being police officers) were full of weapons and they needed to learn early about the dangers of not treating a weapon with respect.

    1. I wish everyone did such a great job of educating their children about all firearms, Wendy. I wish all parents were so careful to teach proper respect for weapons.
      Hope you have a lovely week.
