Don’t Throw The Baby Out With The Bath Water

I struggled with what to write for this one.  I didn’t know if I wanted to explain how it came from a German origin in the 1500’s.  Or if I wanted to tell about how in the past it was a weekly bath for the family… father first, then sons, then mother, then daughters and then last was the baby in the very dirty water – so you almost couldn’t see the baby in the dirty water.

I tried to come up with a comparison I could use in a story, got nothing though.  So instead of writing about throwing the good away when you are trying to get rid of the bad… I am just going to say that baby is just too cute to throw out.

Ask your nominees any 5 questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question

The questions…

     1. What are your aspirations in life?

To love deeply, to appreciate the little things and to help others.

     2. If you had $5000, what charity would you donate it to?

It would either be the local food bank or Good Neighbor… when I was unemployed and practically out of money they helped me with food and bills.  That is something I want to pay back.

     3. What is your favorite kind of music to chill out to?

I would say soft rock or a little meditation music off of YouTube.

     4. How would you rate your experience on WordPress?  1 being lowest, 10 being highest.

8 or 9 … the community is awesome!  The technical issues from time to time are a little annoying.

     5. Have you gained real friendships through blogging?

I would say so.  I think it is easy to do because as writers we share a lot of ourselves.

Three thing about me…

  1. I went on stage during a concert once.
  2. I want to go back to college or at least take some night classes – if I ever get the money to.
  3. I have been in 4 accidents driving… one was a no fault (icy roads) and the other were all the other drivers fault.

I am a rule breaker and will not nominate 10 to 20 people… instead anyone who wants to can answer my questions.

  1. Do you like your middle name?
  2. Have you ever been a witness to a crime?
  3. What is your favorite sport?
  4. Have you ever sang karaoke?
  5. If you could travel anywhere free of charge where would you go?

And now to share a “best” post… they are all special to me in some way but I will link to one I did many years ago.  It was the first blog where I included a poem.

So one and all join in on the fun, answer some questions and share a blog!  You have been nominated!
