Friday Feast #191



Appetizer-- What is the nearest big city to your home?

I guess that depends on your definition of a big city. I live just outside of Monroe, Louiisiana which is maybe 65,000 people. The closest really big city would be Dallas, TX, which is about 5 hours west of here.

Soup-- On a scale of 1-10 with 10 being highest, how well do you keep secrets?

I can keep my mouth shut if I need to, so I would say a 10.

Salad-- Describe your hair (color, texture, length).

My hair is a medium length bob, cut slightly shorter in back. It's blonde, turning gray (or maybe I should say it's gray with some remaining blonde highlights). My hair is soft, baby fine and almost perfectly straight.

Main Course-- What kind of driver are you? Courteous? Aggressive? Slow?

I am very courteous but I have to admit to suffering from road rage. I hate it when people don't use turn signals or won't get over so they don't block traffic. So I guess even though I am a courteous driver, I get angry and frustrated with drivers who do not afford me the same courtesy.

Dessert-- When was the last time you had a really bad week?

What one might call a bad week is all relative to your situation. We all have bad times but there's always something positive happening as well, even if we can't see it at the time.

Marsha -- thanks for stopping by!
Since you were first to post in my blog, I return the favor, I think? LOL

Yes, so true about so many people feeling so self-centered on the road these days. If only they would think about the safety of all those in their present "monkeyshere", and the safety of themselves, maybe they would be a bit more careful.

Five hours is a long ways away from the big city.
If you have to drive, hope you don't run into the rude drivers. LOL

Have a great weekend.

I'd forgotten about people not using their turnsignals--that drives me CRAZY!

And 65,000 people sounds like a decent-sized city!

Nice feast!

Thanks for stopping by...I have similar bouts of "road rage" occasionally. Makes me crazy when people don't return courtesy on the road! :)

What a nice tour I had round your blog.
Congrats on your daughter becoming a nurse. She's lovely.
And the Warehouse 1 shot is perfection - I would have climbed a mountain to catch that one.
Thanks for visiting my Feast

heheheh
we joke that many women 'round here are too busy talking on the phone and simultaneously applying makeup to be bothered with a TURN SIGNAL!
Yeesh

We would be great travel companions! I'm courteous, but experience road rage too.

Hi Marsha! Thanks for stopping by my place this week. I think I have road rage too - those drivers who won't get out of the way are the worst! I think there is still a little Noo Yawk driver left in me :D

I like your honesty about road rage, I hate it too when people don't or won't merge properly, it's just so rude.

We do have a similar hair cut and color.

Great feast!

Straight hair is something I haven't the 2 hours to create for myself. *sigh*
I feel much the same way as your main course.
Very optimistic dessert. ;)

Happy Friday, Marsha. You are in a much bigger city than I am...I think we have something like 15,000 people here :-)

Have a great weekend.

Thanks for stopping by and for the kind words...

I have long hair most of my life... ;)

No closer big city, huh? That's something!

Road rage...I think everyone has at least a little!

Have a great weekend!
