This will be quick. We are still on vacation, but I stole a few minutes away to check mail, post a quick blog or two, and answer some questions. Here goes!
1. Do you think cursive writing is overrated? (Schools in Indiana have now voted to take teaching cursive writing out of their curriculum.)
What a shame that they are eliminating cursive writing! I do no think it is overrated, rather I feel that eliminating this curriculum is laziness on our part. Some study somewhere (I don’t feel like looking it up) shows that those who write in cursive do better academically. Of course, as a former fifth-grade teacher, I think this helps our writing, reading, and everything else . . . 😉 but then, maybe I’m overrating its importance. hahaha
2. Do you still use a pocket calendar or notepad or do you keep your info on your smart phone?
No smart phone. No pocket calendar. Notepad…archaic I know, but see question 1.
3. What 3 things would you save if your house was burning down? (family & pets are already safe)
Photos, books, laptop.
4. Country Mouse or City Mouse, err Person?
Oy…. I like both. I love the country and would probably choose to live there, but only if I could make regular trips into the city….love the vitality of a city.
5. If you could pick ANY reality show to go on, which would you pick?
Wow. We don’t own a tv and it’s been a very long time since I’ve watched. Never did watch reality shows. There’s one that takes people on adventures all around that world that sounds interesting, but I can’t remember the name: Amazing something-or-other. The one that rebuilds or remodels your home also sounds good.
That does it for this week. We are heading home Sunday or Monday and life will return to normal. I’ll get back to visiting your blogs then (I have over 500 notices of new postings by y’all to catch up on…I’m gonna be busy!) Thanks for continuing to drop by during my vacation. Have a great weekend!!!

Glad you had a wonderful vacation. I would have never thought about grabbing photos, but they are in a shoebox 🙂 Hope you are having a wonderful Friday.
Thanks, Jenna. Only a few days left, but no complaints. This trip has been a wonderful reprieve for us.
Hey mine’s up too!
Great! I’ll hop on over and read them. 🙂
I totally agree with your #1!! Obviously the world is becoming less and less paper-orientated which is good in one sense, but is very sad in another. Sigh…pass me my quill!!
I’m with you. Have you ever used a real quill? I was given one (goose feather) that was made for me by a professional scribe. I’m ready to go back to those days. . .of course it would put a real damper on the speed of communication, but at least it would be pretty!!!!! 🙂
What a trip!
And what wonderful photos!
(I particularly like the fish – they’re so bright and cheerful!)
Thanks SIG! It was a wonderful trip. We got home just a little while ago, but we have great memories and beautiful photos to remind us. Thanks for “traveling” with us. 🙂
I love reading your 5 question Friday posts!
Thanks for stopping by. This is my third week of doing that (thanks to Redneck Princess!) Keep coming back 🙂 I will try to answer them every Friday. Feel free to join us!
I still love writing in longhand on a notepad… 🙂
I do, too. In fact, I always keep pen and paper with me. . .never know when the urge to write will strike! 😉
