Friday5 for Jauary 20: Questions to Make Your Hands Clammy

I've tried 3 times to correct this, and stripped it out and if this does not work, I'll have to stop doing friday5.

Friday 5 for January 20: Questions to Make Your Hands Clammy

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!
Ha.  I was pleased with this week’s theme.  I wrote the questions and then checked my archive, and apparently it’s such a good idea that I thought of it two years ago.  I was pleased that I didn’t repeat myself.  If five questions aren’t enough for you this week, and if you never answered those, feel free to tack those questions onto these and make it a Friday 10!

Who’s been a ray of sunshine lately?
My youngest daughter, as she has reached some place in her life that seems to suit her very well. 

When do you next expect to be stuffed to the gills?
That has already happened the other night.  We ate at the Mall Food Court before seeing a concert.  I was trained early to eat everything I put on my plate and it was a hard lesson.  So, not being able to ever waste food, and not being able to take it home either, I ate all my food.  I was stuffed.
Among people you know, who can really tell a whale of a tale?
Our old and now deceased rockhound friend Bob could tell the best stories.  Very fun times at the rockhound camps.

What’s something you’ve been herring good things about?
The Women's March On Washington.  I hope it goes well.  Wish I could be there!

Which of the S.S. Minnow‘s passengers or crew do you think you’d get along best with?

The Captain. In the few shows we watched, I remember him as jovial and capable.  I know, he did crash his boat onto an Island.  Demerits!
But he was portrayed by a superb actor, Alan Hale, Jr.

Thanks for participating, and may you find a peaceful place to perch this weekend!

Thank you so much for the wishes, and the Meme.  And I wish the same for you. 


  1. I like the new look of your blog--a new font?

    I also can't make it to the Washington march, but I sent some Pussyhats with some friends who can be there.

    1. Pussy hats Rule! Being there in heart and spirit will count later on, as communities resist the pushing and shoving. For every person there at the march there are most likely five who can't be there but who very much care.
      And yes, thank thank you. It's a couple of new fonts.

  2. I am going to live the March vicariously with DD2 who is going to the one in LA! I hope every one is able to participate safely.

    1. Good for your daughter! I'm with you on safety concerns. I think the police are more aware of the consequences of brutality now. They can't beat up a woman reporter and smash her camera equipment anymore without major consequences.

  3. What was the concert? And what was the pre-concert meal? Musical foodies want to know!

    1. The concert was a bust, because we are so busy the date for it sailed by, without notice, and when we got to the venue and all was quiet. Ah! A foodie! The food was from the food court, at the mall, 🐼 Panda express, and delicious. Veggie chow mein and orange chicken.
