5 Question Friday

Rules for 5QF: Copy and paste the following questions to your blog post, answer them, then watch for the linky post to appear Friday morning and LINK UP!

Oh, and remember (pay close attention...this is the important one)...HAVE FUN!

1. What were you scared of as a kid?
     Have you ever seen the movie "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?" For some odd reason I saw it when I was 8 or 9 or younger maybe. That is a creepy movie with Bette Davis and Joan Crawford. It was about 2 sisters and the one sister, Bette Davis, had a severe case of jealousy toward her beautiful, talented sister. She hated her so much that she managed to set her up to have an accident in which she became crippled. Yeah, scary, I know. In order for my siblings and I to creep each other out, we would say something like, "Baby Jane is under your bed" as you were walking by it. In your mind you thought she was going to quickly reach out and grab your feet and pull you under.

I found this on the internet -
Plot Summary for the movie:
      In a tale that almost redefines sibling rivalry, faded actresses Blanche and 'Baby' Jane Hudson live together. Jane was by far the most famous when she performed with their father in vaudeville but as they got older, it was Blanche who became the finer actress, which Jane still resents. Blanche is now confined to a wheelchair - Jane ran her over with the car while drunk, even though she has no memory of it - and Jane is firmly in control. As time goes by, Jane exercises greater and greater control over her sister, intercepting her letters and ensuring that few if anyone from the outside has any contact with her. As Jane slowly loses her mind, she torments her sister going to ever greater extremes. Written by garykmcd

     Are you scared now? I'm scared just typing about it!

2. Do you sleep well in a hotel?

     Yes, as long as I have my pillow and the bed is fairly comfy and my hubby is beside me.
3. If you could meet any celebrity, dead or alive, who and why?
     This is my fluff answer... Carrie Underwood. I love her music and think she is absolutely beautiful. Beth Moore would be great to meet. I think God uses her in amazing ways through her writing.           

4. It's a hot summer day. Do you prefer to be pool side or at the beach?
     Either works for me. I love swimming in our pool because it's convenient, the surroundings are pretty and if I need something I can just go inside, but going to the beach is an extra special treat.

5. What is your favorite summer dish?
 I like when Shawn grills out, I love watermelon tons, and I like cold pasta salads.

Fun Post!

I so love pasta! Cold, warm, or hot!

Yes…I also saw "Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?” when I was young. Remember the bird?

Oh, I dream of my home in heaven…a cottage by the sea. The ocean is the loveliest place of all!

However…I am always happy sitting beside my very small back yard pool. It is our happy spot. I have my morning coffee out there when the weather is nice, and my husband and I love to eat out there as often as we can.

I have to learn to take my pillow along on trips; hotel pillows are always too full and stiff for me.

Happy Friday, Carol!

Dearest Carol~I know how you feel the "lump on your throat" the same one I had when you and Shawn parted with the children to Michigan.It brings tears to my eyes even now thinking of how I felt at the time. However, life turned out "well" and it was all for the best. I would worry if something happened "you were so far away". Thank goodness for the internet, the phone and blogs of course!They sound like "great people". It would have been anhonor and privilege to know them. May the Lord's blessings always chase their family and yours.
