Friday Feast

Have you ever played a practical joke on anyone? If so, what did you do and who was your victim?
In high school I was part of the tech crew that did the behind the scenes stuff for the theatre productions. We had just gotten in a shipment of brand new lighting equipment packed in big boxes of styrofoam peanuts.....lots and lots of styrofoam peanuts. So thinking myself quite the practical joker I thought I would take those peanuts and pour them into the car of one of the cast members. It was a windy day and when the guy went out and opened the door to his car zillions of little white peanuts got picked up by the wind and blew all over like a raging non-biodegradeable blizzard. Well he wasn't very happy about that and went inside and told what had happeded. The Tech crew director was about two stages beyond mad and found out it was me. I heard all about the enviornmental ramifications of zillions of styrofoam peanuts let loose upon our forests and streams. I was given a trash bag and told to start collecting them....easier said than done. I spent several hours chasing peanuts around the parking lot and picking them out of the stream.

What do your salt and pepper shakers look like?
I have two salt and pepper shakers. One set is from Tupperware. They are tall and have reddish pink tops. The other set are little glass ones with silver tops.

Where is the next place you plan to visit (on vacation or business)?
The next trip I'm taking will be for business. I'm leaving for Juneau on monday for three nights. Juneau is in southeast Alaska at the base of a big mountain and under several huge avalance shutes. Very disconcerting. Thankfully it's VERY beautiful there and that helps to distract you from the possibility of being buried alive beneath 9,000 tons of snow.

Main Course
What kind of lotion or cream do you use to keep your hands from getting too dry?
My hands are so terrible that I have given up putting lotion on them. No amount of lotion makes them any better. If I do put something on my hands I prefer it be not too greasy and not too stinky.

Make up a dessert, tell us its ingredients, and give it a name.

Huh? Ummm.....I'm not one for fancy desserts...I prefer ice cream.

Great feast!

Yes, the beauty will distract you most of the time. And work will help too.

A friend went to a location elsewhere with sortlike dangers and he said that one learns to live with it. He was OK as long as the people who lived there felt OK. They had a kind of intuition for when things were dangerous.

Good trip!

Feel welcome to visit my feast at

Lotions...Best of all - L'Occitane (available on Amazon) Shea Butter Hand Cream. It's very think but melts away to nothing pretty quick. I put a small goop on the back of my hand then rub the backs of my hands together - look odd but keeps most off my palms - then rub it in. For a not as bad day, Crabtree & Evelyn Gardener's Therapy (also good on feet).

I too suffer from horribly dry hands - usually fingers crack at least once a winter, but none so far.

LOVE your blog! I too am a New Englander by birth, but have live in "the south" for 18 years.
