Grilling Goodness With Tina And Friends~ 4


It's that time again...Time for some more "Grilling Goodness." If you would like to join in all of the fun, just click here. Tina would love to have you all participate!

Now, on with the grilling.....

1. The World Series has you watch it? (And do you care who wins?)

Hmmm, let me see, no and no. I do enjoy a good baseball game, but my sweet hubby does not, so I no longer keep up with baseball. However, when I was a teenager, I loved baseball. I was a Chicago Cubs fan.

Specifically I was a Greg Maddox fan. I appreciated all of his baseball related skills.

Well, okay, who am I kidding here? I thought he was a full blown hottie! There...I admitted it to the tens of you reading this right now. I had a BIG crush on him, but in my defense, he was very good looking at his job.

Just look at all of that talent out on the field.

I'm just saying is all.

2. Is the inside of your car clean or 'garbage dump filthy'?

Neither. But I'll let you decide what you think, but I'm asking that you please, be nice!

The front seats....

The back seats.....

The driver's side floorboard.....

Since I am generally the only one who drives this car, I can't even blame the dirt on any one but myself.


3. Who is the next person in your family to have a birthday?

That would be my brother, John. He will be 27 on November 16th.

Wasn't he the cutest thing?

If it's all the same to you, let's don't mention to John that I showed you all these pictures. Thanks! ;)

4. Do you wear glasses or contacts? (How old were you when it became necessary?)

I have worn both, but mostly, I just wear glasses. I don't remember exactly how old I was when I got them, but I do remember something about having to wear them so that I could clearly see road signs, other cars, and pedestrians, and I think Kenny may have said something about me needing glasses the first time I left the house looking like this. ;)

5. What is your major form of exercise?

I don't completely understand the question. ;)

I'm teasing, of course. But seriously, when I am not busy having back surgery, back pain, nerve damage, and limping, I love to walk. I walk outside when I can, but mostly I walk along to Leslie Sansone's Walking DVDs. Like this one.

I also like to ride my recumbent bike.

(Mainly because I can sit and watch television while I ride it.)

6. What is something you could do to make your spouse's day easier today?

Shannon is a very easy man to please, so he appreciates all of the little things that I do for him each day, but since you asked, I would probably have to say that Shannon would appreciate me being a little less like Roseanne.....

And a little more like June here.....

I'm working on it.


(For the record though, my family looooves the Roseanne show. We heart the Conners. We just wish that our house looked more like the Cleaver's, as opposed to the Conner's.)

7. How much is gas where you are?

When I got gas last week, it was $2.34 a gallon.

I miss the days when it was $1.25 a gallon.


8. What is the furthest away from home that you've ever traveled?

As most of you already know, the furthest that I have traveled is to the Mediterranean (click here).

I try to get over to that part of the world every thirty-eight years or so.;)

You are so funny I love coming to your blog to be made feel happy. said...

That was funny! You should have told everyone about the Greg Maddox picture! A friend of mine from Tribune Broadcasting went to the 1st Cubs game when the lights were turned on! He stood in line to get a baseball autographed for my precious Amy's 18th birthday! It made her day!!! However, my Dad would have turned over in his grave knowing that her and John were Cubs fan as he was a die hard Cardinals fan!
Love you baby girl!
MOM :)

lol- We very well might be kin. You are to funny.. But it looks like we like baseball for the same reason..Ha. I would be into the game but I get so distracted by all the yummy eye candy its to hard to know what is going on...

When I was growing up I was not allowed to watch Roseanne. My parents did not approve of it. Even now when I see it on television and stop to see what is going on I feel a little quilty even though I am laughing my head off.. Now, there is a little tidbit. My families favorite show was Alf. Or Andy Griffith.

My Goodness said...

I just LOVE that you take the time to find photos to answer your questions with!! ((hugs))

Hmmm Greg Maddox...I didn't know him until he was with the Braves.

I'm curious about your walking dvd...not sure how that goes.

Glad you got glasses!! lol

Thanks for playing!!

SondreLyn said...

That is really funny, I esp like the car thing. Mine is similar. There isn't anything in it, but it is not the cleanest thing either!

Michele said...

Loved your answers! No June Cleaver lives here but you can bet Rosanne does!!!! :) Just ask Larry!

You are so fun Amy! It is so refreshing to come here. I hope you are doing better in your health. Praying for you.

Please come clean my car. I married a garbage man, or so he thinks. Honestly, my drive for keeping everything in place just went to pieces the day we married. He's a mess, but he's mine. What's a girl to do with that kind of love?!


Dianne said...

LOL, I love that last comment, every 38 years or so. HA HA HA.

I think your car is spick and span, if I had a car, it would be kept in that same condition.

So I take it John is not a big blog reader, otherwise he would already know that you featured his toddler cuteness for the world to see.

I just love getting to know all these little things about you, I'll have to try and tell you more about me, you are good at this grilling goodness thing.


Mia said...

June Cleaver ain't got nothin' on you my dear!!!

Half Gaelic, Half Garlic! said...

You are hilarious girl!!

And that is the lowest price I have seen on gas in a long time...I too wish for $1.25 a gallon.....I fill my tank 3-4 times a week....I have to drive a lot for work....UGH!!

It is such a treat visiting your blog...I needed this little bit of laughter midday on a Monday!


Gina said...

Wow! I wish gas here was under $3 a gallon. I was excited last week when I paid $3.15 for gas. One of the downsides of living in sunny SoCal, everything is more expensive. :(

Have a great day!! :)

Cheffie-Mom said...

What a fun post! LOL! Thanks for sharing!

2nd Cup of Coffee said...

Very fun answers!

Paula (SweetPea) said...

You car looks great. Don't all of our cars look like that on the driver's floor? My car is clean everywhere except there.

I wear contacts and have for about 10 years...glasses before that.

I too have been known to walk with Leslie but just not lately.

I have a recumbent bike almost exactly like that.

I think gas was around $2.59 but that was up north as I traveled today for training for work.

Tracey said...

Great answers and love the pictures!!!

Pleasant Drive said...

I love the way you use pictures to illustrate! And, I enjoyed learning more about you :)

Jamie @ Purposeful Pursuit said...

What fun! I love reading your always makes me smile.

Kenny said...

I prefer the Tawny version of you over Roseann. Also I am glad to know you only go to the Mediterranean every 38 years. I don't think you could handle it any more.

Smiling Shelly said...

How fun! I can't believe I've missed two Golden Goodness(es). I've got a lot of catching up to do (and -as you well know- plenty of stories to tell).

I miss you guys terribly and will be back as soon as humanly possible :)

PS. I can see why you love baseball, those tight mean guys do know how to make the field look nice.
