Friday Feast #153

Describe a toy you remember from your childhood.
The one that really stands out is a doll house my dad put together Christmas Eve, after I finally went to bed. While he and my mom were working on it, I woke up and wandered down the hall and caught them at it. My mom whispered to me that I was walking in my sleep and to go back to bed. I must have fallen for it, too!

It was a really neat doll house and had tons of little people and little furniture. He built it on a wooden platform with wheels so I could take it all around the house. Cool.

On a scale of 1 to 10 (with 10 being highest) how observant are you?
I'd like to think "very" since I like to paint and sketch! But as I get older I find more and more escapes me. I'm having to train myself to keep in the observant mode!
Where would you rather be at this very moment?
Does "anywhere but here" count? Come to think of it, that's a stupid answer! I could get zapped to Iran or North Korea, or Heaven help me, Iraq! Let's be more astute and say on the beach at Princeville in Kaua'i, Hawai'i.
When was the last time you learned something new?
Today. I'm working on my HTML skills - and it's a slow trip.

Fill in the blanks: I have SKILLS but I haven’t BEEN USING THEM.

HTML is easy, you just need a lot of practice to get the hang of it :)

Happy feasting! Come join mine at

Happy Friday and good luck with learning html. Like "She" said... it's not difficult. I kept myself a "cheat sheet" for a long time with the basic codes. And, I still find myself having to check back occasionally for help. There are some great tutorials online... just Google "html tutorials." Have fun with it :-)

Oh fun html!! I have worked and worked on that too and I am a lot better at it now than I was. I can get by and I guess that is all that I need to do with this blog!! I guess your other two bloggers are there so they could help you if you need it too. Have a great Friday my friend..Sandy

Hawaii is good Gracie. I'm with you on this one. Great answer on this question by the way. Anywhere but here isn't a good answer at all when you put it in those terms. Have a great FF and weekend. :)

Great feast...good luck on the HTML!
My skills are limited in that area.
Takes lots of trying and re-trying for me.

Happy Friday, Gracie.

Ugh! I don't even know what HTML means! Can I go to Kauai with you and you can just tell me about it?
