Friday's Random Five

                                                        Random Thought #1
Yes I know Valentine's Day has passed. But, I just had to share with you what my honey got me.
                                                        Chocolate covered strawberries.

Random Thought #2
I live in a really small town. Not a large selection of restaurants here. So, I am super thrilled that Wakefield now has a Chinese restaurant.
Random Thought #3
Do you watch American Idol? I am so proud that one of Jasper, Alabama's own made it to the top 13.
Way to go, C. J. 

Random Thought #4
I know it has been a very cold winter!! But, the propane company has filled my gas tank three times since Jan. 1st. Something is wrong, somewhere.
Random Thought #5
My Random thought of the past is this: Have you ever wondered what happened to a close friend?
I wonder about Linda Porter. She's the one in the dark sweater below. Our husbands were both sailors stationed at Bainbridge, Md. back in the '60s. I just wonder whatever happened to her.
I am linking up with Nancy
for Random Five Friday
Why don't you hop on over there and see what everyone else has been up to lately?


  1. I just peeked at your last blog, congratulations how exciting! Plus your number 5 I wonder if this will somehow connect you up to her or at least with someone who might know the answer to your question.

  2. wow, those chocolates look so yummy good. what a great treat. enjoy! ( :

  3. Those strawberries are huge and look delicious! How sweet.
    You must be spending a fortune on the propane. Hope you can get someone to look at the problem.
    Hope you have a nice weekend.

  4. Those are some beautiful chocolate covered strawberries! I bet they were delicious. I like that old photo and I do often wonder about old friends as well.

  5. I saw on the news about price gouging. Perhaps there are others who use propane and you could check with them about their total this winter.

  6. I was just thinking about an old friend this afternoon. I wonder........

  8. Chocolate covered strawberries are so yummy. You wonder if your old friend isn't also looking at an old photo of you wondering where you are. Hopefully the stars will align and she will see your post.
