I have had both fish and birds. Both are fun but the fish are easier upkeep! so...Fish emoticon

We keep our dogs in or in a fenced area as we have coyotes and they would kill the dogs!

Do you put out bird seed and feeders for wild birds or not? Hummingbird feeders or seed feeders?

Pets? I prefer my cats stay close by. However,... they are cats.

There are a few dogs that run the neighborhood. :-( They seem like nice dogs, but my cats don't like them.


Either pet fish or pet birds? No middle ground here. If you HAD to choose, what would it be?

Well, I used to have a nice collection of dresses to wear. Then with weight fluctuations, nothing fit anymore. I ended up just having nice pants & tops that would fit me. I recently bought a nice dress to wear at a wedding we were invited to....It was an outdoor wedding & there has been a recent West Nile Virus in our area. I wore my dress pants & heels at the wedding, instead of the dress. My heels kept sinking in the sod. It was sorta funny. My dress? It was the new short version & would've fit in perfectly with what others were wearing. I am short, so nothing is ever as short on me as it is supposed to be....so I felt comfortable with the dress length. Still haven't worn it yet.

How about pets? Do you let them run loose or keep them leashed/fenced when they're outside?

Depends on the season. I like shorter for mobility but longer for warmth! I was in big trouble for awhile in Iceland, lot's of formal occasions and only sleeveless, lightweight formals. My mom made me a long satin skirt and I found some beaded tops with jackets!

My wedding dress was "tea length" and it was nice to be able to walk free and easy. (Also it was my mom's)

On the same note: going to church or other non work public gatherings?
Dress or nice pants or jeans?
I wear dresses or skirts to church.

I say CD's b/c that is what I know how to use & have a CD player! I need my sons help for the digital kind. Too frustrating.

How about formal dresses (like for a homecoming dance?) ... do you think the floor length kind are the best looking, or the new shorter versions that they wear these days....? (It was homecoming weekend here in my town, so that's why it's on my mind. LOL) emoticon

I exercise whenever it fits into the schedule! I usually walk the dog for 15-30 minutes, depending on the weather, earlier in the morning. I then do MY workout later in the morning, sometimes early afternoon.

soy milk, rice milk, almond milk or cow's milk? emoticon

Hmmmm, my favorite is seeing a field full of purple wildflowers. Yellow wildflowers remind me of the mustard and clover flowers I used to step on as a get with bare feet (silly me.) Yes, I ended up with lots of bee stings. You'd think I would've learned and worn shoes?? Nope.

How about protein bars? Do you like the 20 g high protein bars, or do you like the ones that are lower in protein (about 9 g) that taste more like a granola bar?

LOL I think I answered this one before! I have a dog, and I love her, but I have been owned by cats and adore them as well...cats are easier..dogs are so devoted.

Outside for sure!!! (I don't have a treadmill, and don't belong to a gym right now) Though, I do own several of Leslie Sansone's walking workouts (okay, more than several, probably nine or ten!)

I would do better washing the dishes(loading the dishwasher!!)

Would you rather knit or crochet?

Either/Or game: This is where I name two things and you choose one. NON-food related.

i.e. Would you enjoy washing dishes or doing the cooking?

You answer with your preference and then ask a question.

Have fun!
