Meet Me On Monday

Meet me on Monday is a blogging meme hosted at Never Grow Old. There are five questions each Monday. It's a great way for bloggers and their readers to get to know each other better.

These are the questions for this week:

1. Do you have a fireplace in your home?

Yes I do, but it doesn't work. The previous owners had an insert in there and removed it before we bought the house. Last winter (after 9 years of living in our house without any kind of working fireplace), we bought one of those electric fireplaces and it is sitting right in front of it. It looks cute and does a great job of heating.

Ours is like the one pictured below...minus the wheels:

2. Can you drive a stick shift?

Yes, but is not always pretty. I try to avoid stopping facing up a hill whenever possible. This is kind of hard since I live in the most mountainous state. Fortunately, the main vehicle I drive is an automatic.

3. How many computers are in your home?

Four! My hubby's laptop (when he is home), my laptop (just got this year. Yay!), a desktop that Buddy mainly uses, and an old desktop that only runs the weather station and uploads the weather info to the internet.

4. Are your taxes done yet? Do you do them yourself?

Yes they are done! We have a tax lady, because railroad engineers' tax laws/amounts/etc are constantly changing. Worth it to have them done.

5. What is your favorite meal of the day?

Probably dinner, because it usually has the most variety. can always have breakfast foods for dinner!

    Thanks for following. I checked out your website. So cute! I am now following you at your site, on twitter, & Liked on Facebook. On Twitter, I am TheJourney_1. Looking forward to getting to know you. Take care.

  10. Hi Becky Jane,

    Thanks for following. I just visited your blog and followed you back. So glad to hear that your son Bogie is safe in Japan. What a relief, huh?

    I am not in need of a wheelchair, but I do have early onset Parkinsons and it seems that I may need some substantial cane or maybe a walker in the somewhat near future. Maybe when the time comes, your advice can help me. Hope the rest of your day is wonderful!

  11. Hello Ellie,
