The Friday Five

Well, I never...

1. I've never been skiing. Not one for cold and snow. Though the idea of curling up before a fire with a good book and a lovely hot beverage is appealing.

2. I've never been impaneled on a jury. I came close one time. My juror number was two away from being called when both attornies finally accepted the jury panel.

3. I've never participated in karaoke. A good thing since I sing like a hinge.

4. I've never been horseback riding. A high school friend showed horses, and I went with her to a show. She had a friend who had a big, ol' plow horse named, Amy. Amy was a companion to another horse named Russell T Boomer. The friend asked me if I wouldn't mind giving ol' Amy some exercise.  She said Amy was real gentle so I agreed. I was boosted onto Amy's back, handed the reins and told riding Amy would be like riding a bicycle. Pull left to go left, right to go right, give her a little nudge in the ribs to go forward, and pull back on the reins to stop. Simple enough.  Amy had a shape like an oak barrell, and me being short (though I'm quite tall for a Hobbit), my legs stuck straight out from Amy's side. We were doing okay, she ambling across a field, and me bumping along on her back, when Amy caught a whiff of Russell T. having a snack. The ol' gal took off like a shot with me trying to hang on like a tick on a dog. No amount of pulling back on the reins, and yelling "WHOA" would help. That ol' mare wanted a share of the snack and that was that.

5. I've never had a professional manicure or pedicure. I don't like the feel of shellac on my nails.

Your turn.


  1. I've never been to Boston in the fall. Or any other time either, but I want to remedy that before I'm a weeble.

  2. You may want to remedy that before I'm a weeble! LOL

  3. I've never been to Disneyworld and I sure do want to. :)

  4. I've never been to Wash DC, that's on my to do list.

  5. Hi! Thanks for stopping by Milkmoon!
    I've never published a book, but that is something I dream about!
    Great post!

  6. "I sing like a hinge."
    Hee hee hee....
