Friday Feast 23 Feb 07

Appetizer
Where on your body do you have a scar, and what caused it?
Where do I start? I am covered in scars. Lots are horse induced! My best on is on my top lip, where I got kicked in the face by a rearing horse. My boy's big half sister. Same Dad, she got her Mum's temper.

Soup

What is something that has happened to you that you would consider a miracle?
One time - before mobile (cell) phones were common but were just becoming reasonibly priced. My car broke down on a lonely country road. I was at least 3 miles from the nearest civilisation and the road is not that busy. About 5 mins later car came by and stopped.

There's me a 25yr old woman on my own having a major panic attack because 1. Do I get out and start walking? 2. No one is looking for me until at least 10pm and this was about 6pm 3. A car has just stopped - I have no idea who the people in it are!

The people in the car were a lovely elderly couple who took my Mum's and my brother's phone numbers. Drove to the nearest village and phoned them for me. They refused my offer of money for the phone call and said if they couldn't get through they'd come back and let me know. With in half an hour I had my Mum and a breakdown truck with me. I am sure that kind elderly couple were angels. in the whole time I was stuck I didn't have another vehicle go by.

Salad
Name a television personality who really gets on your nerves.
This will probably not translate into US for apologies for it but Anysley Harriott really really really... He's a TV chef, unfortunately it's hard to get away from him because although it's possible to avoid the programmes he's on he is also in the adverts.

Main Course
What was a funny word you said as a child (such as "pasketti" for "spaghetti")?
I have never been told of any I said but there are some daft family words

Cutter grass - Lawn Mower, curtesy of my big brother Wolvers - wolves from two of my nephews Wellow - yellow from my youngest nephew Just remembered that I could never say soldier and always said shoulder. So my brother was a shoulder.

Dessert
Fill in the blank: I have always thought ______ was ______.

LOL see above - my brother was a shoulder!

Can I have I have always thought God was great?

War was/is not the answer

I am so sorry, but I can't read anything with your green letters, it is not clear on your background. Impossible to read ! I thought I better tell you instead of running away, lol !

Just highlight it Gatt like you were doing a copy paste and then you can read it.
Your shoulder brother touched my heart. That is soooooo wonderful.
I had trouble with the "was" I wish they had used a present tense.
Great Feast!
Have a wonderful day!

Hello, not sure how I wondered over here...but I love your scrapbook page! And that was a very cool meme

Arlene said...

This cracked me up, but I think I was a little confused...

Rose said...

They say that there are angels on earth. I guess you met two of them. :)

The Wooden Porch said...

What a sweet old couple!

Paperback Writer said...

You got kicked in the face by a horse!! Eek!

Bellezza said...

This is the second feast which mentions an angel surrounding us; I love those stories, and I believe in them with all my heart. I think your blog is quite special...it's nice to see your spirit within it.

A good feast. TV personalities can be quite obnoxious at times. There are so many to choose from lol.

Gattina said...

It's good that people like your elderly couple are still existing !

I came here to admire your new template ! It looks very neat and clear and I was able to read EVERYTHING without any problem. It's much better than the other, at least to my taste.
And as you see, I am NOT curious at all !
