Hodgepodge 7.0

I got the term 'hodgepodge' from an old educational video-game system that I played when I was probably six or seven years old. My neighbors watched me sometimes when my parents were busy with work. We'd always call into a local Christian phone line to hear a Bible verse, and then play educational games until it was time for lunch. I always played Hodgepodge. I think it had something to do with jumbled-up words that had to be un-jumbled.

Ah, memory lane. In thinking about those neighbors (who happened to be very religious,) it still amazes me how many Christian activities I was involved in when I was young. My family isn't Christian, I'm not Christian, but somehow I found myself going to Youth For Christ meetings (mostly for the cookies and games) and attending church activities with friends. I listen to Christian radio at least once a week. I think a lot of the more specific religious stances and prevailing opinions on "the issues" are a load of hooey, but I think they've got general concepts down pat. I don't know where I'm going with this. I guess this is why I got that fun-but-useless minor in Religious Studies. I'm eternally curious, and religion offers a bottomless pit of learning. Now, if only I could find a Buddhist radio station... that would be fantastic!

I wonder if Ruthie (one of the neighbor kids) ever got her cat. Her parents told her she couldn't have any pets until she turned 18, and then she could have a cat. I hope she did. Life is better with pets.

I always seem to dremel dog nails after midnight. Curious.

Sometimes, you just have to help make someone's life a little easier. Give it a try - I guarantee you won't regret it.

Jayne decided a zombie on The Walking Dead was a threat, so he charged the TV and barked. Now I know we'll be safe in the event of a zombie apocalypse. Hooray!

I need to find someone to play a strategic board game with me and Steve. It's called Betrayal at House on the Hill and it's the best board game I've ever played. I was skeptical, but Steve paid me five bucks to play and I was hooked. Anyone want to come over and play? Please? Pleeeeaaaassseeee????

It's Mini-Egg season, folks! Rejoice! And finally.......

Talla's ears are finally both standing on their own!

It's 12:30am... I should go to sleep.


  1. Well I can help with the Buddhist radio thing.

    Not the same as turning it on the home radio. But at least you can listen even after its aired. ;)


  2. Hello there! Found your blog this morning, while I was browsing my friend's friends. I found your posts here interesting! Hugs! God bless you greatly! :)
