Thursday Thirteen




1. Handwritten - Since the computer age I rarely get a handwritten letter from family and friends. But, my daughter sends me handwritten thank you cards for every little gesture I give. I cherish these notes that are also signed by my grandbabies.

2. Hazel - My eyes are hazel. Sometimes they look very blue and other days green. I guess that’s just a characteristic of hazel eyes.

3. Heart attack - I had a heart attack four years ago and I still worry about having another one. Unlike men, women usually don't experience chest pain, but pain in their ears and jaws. I didn't know this until it was too late. Now every time I feel any pressure at all in my ears I think "here it comes". Maybe I'm turning into a hypochondriac.

4. High heels - I use to love to wear high heels You know those “Joan Crawford Come **** Me Pumps”. Now I would probably break a leg trying to wear anything over 2 inches. Just this past week I dreamt of shopping for the spike heels.

5. Hershey bar - I can’t do a list without listing some type of chocolate. This is my favorite, even better than Godiva.

6, Hiding place - Do you have a special little hiding place for money? I use to always keep a few hundred dollars in my sock drawer inside of a sock for an emergency or in case I wanted to leave town in a hurry. That was before AMT cards and machines. Now I probably don’t have $5.00 in my purse.

7. Hillbilly - That’s what people call us folks from West Virginia.

8. Horoscope - I’m not a believer in horoscopes but I read mine almost every day. If my horoscope said I was going to be coming into a lot of money or meet a tall dark stranger I wouldn’t give it a second thought. However, if it said not to travel or fly, I would definitely stay put. Now does that me superstitious?

9. Hollywood - I’ve been to California a few times but never to Hollywood. I hope I’m able to go before the big sign is torn down.

10. Home homebody - As much as I love to travel I am a hopeless homebody. I am most happy right here in the comfort of my home.

11. Hunger - Why is it that when I’m dieting I’m constantly hungry. A guy in my weight loss group is a true inspiration. In the past 2 years he has lost 168 pounds. He told me he always want something to eat at night, so he eats a lettuce sandwich with a little mustard. I’ve been buying the 35 calorie bread and loading it up with lettuce and it does work. That is only 1 weight watchers point.

12. Hurricane - I live in Hurricane, West Virginia. Hurricane is not pronounced like the storm. It is pronounced (her a kuhn)

13. Honesty - This is an extremely important trait for anyone to possess. I think I'm an honest person and if you asked any of my friends they would say so too.

My niece gives us cards every time we walk through her front door. It's nice but it can also be annoying at times.
