In Like a Lion Hodgepodge

It is that time, it is time for the Hodgepodge.
Joyce asks the questions.
We answer the questions.
Click here  to join the fun.
1. 'In like a lion, out like a lamb'...does the first part of this saying describing March weather ring true  where you live? 
My boys and I always play this weather game. We decided waking up to -20 degrees was lion weather. We all have Spring Fever at our house.
 2. March 4th is National Grammar Day. What common grammatical error bothers you the most? 
Their, There, They're
3. William Arthur Ward says- 'The pessimist complains about the wind; the optimist expects it to change; the realist adjusts the sails.' Which one are you? 
I am the realist. I will adjust the sails.
 4. What's something you need to 'march forth and conquer' this month?
In my Hodgepodge from last week I shared our basement project. Our basement wall on the East side of the house is bowing in and bowing out. We have our contractor lined up and just waiting for good weather to start. And I will need to 'march forth and conquer' with the help of my husband and boys, cleaning the basement.
 5. An ongoing debate around here...do you dust first, then vacuum or vacuum first, then dust? Of the two routine household chores, which do you dislike the least? How's that for wording? 
 6. According to thrilllist.com, the ten most photographed sites in the U.S.A. are- Cinderella's Castle in Orlando, Southernmost House in Key West Florida, The Space Needle in Seattle, The Site of the Boston Massacre in Boston, The Bellagio Lake/fountains in Las Vegas, The Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC, Coit Tower in San Fransisco, The Art Institute of Chicago, Niagara Falls, and snagging the number one spot-The Guggenheim Museum in New York City. 
 How many on this list have you photographed? Which on the list would you most like to visit and photograph?
I have only had the opportunity to photograph, The Site of the Boston Massacre in Boston.

 The Old State House.

It is hard to pick one. I would like to visit so many. I will pick  Niagara Falls, that would be a great family trip.
7. Fifty years ago Monday (March 2, 1965) The Sound of Music premiered at the Rivoli Theatre in NYC. Have you seen the film? Do you own a copy? On a scale of 1-10 how much do you love it (or not)? Ten=best movie ever. If you're a fan, what's your favorite scene or song from the movie? 
I am a fan of The Sound of Music. Yes, we do own a copy. I give it a 10! 
 My favorite song!
 8. Insert your own random thought here.
A few more photos of Boston

 My boys...oh my they have grown.

Have a great week! 


  1. I love these answers, Carla. It really helps to get to know a person, doesn't it?
    Your pet peeves and mine are the same....add loose/lose, peek/peak, its/it's and I could go on-but I won't.
    GREAT pictures of Boston. That one of the caped man is fantastic....xo Diana

  2. I love reading these! I have photographed a few of those sights and been to Boston but didn't see that one. I need to go back! You're and your get me!

  3. Sounds like we have quite a bit in common :) Great photos of Boston. Haven't been there in years and it would be fun to go back with the kids.

  4. Love reading your answers. In high school we had both a junior and senior trip and our junior trip was to Boston...loved the history. History was my favorite subject..maybe that's why I became an antique dealer...I love the history of pieces. Considering below zero temps in Feb. we had 30 degree weather on March 1st..so not sure if that counts as a lion or lamb. Guess we will have to see how the month ends. Janice

  5. I have only photographed the Bellagio, but sure hope to add more of those destinations to my list. Niagra and Boston are highest on my list of where I want to go. I love all of your photo's! So much fun! And the sail boat....it makes me feel warmer just looking at it!

  6. Hi Carla, Your Boston photos are great; I would like to visit there one day. Best wishes with your basement project. It has been a difficult winter and everyone is looking forward to spring!

  7. Good luck with your basement. That sounds like a big project. I like Boston, but am happy not to live there this winter. Course is snowing like crazy here today too. We're not much better than they are. I think we have 6 foot piles of snow and theirs are ten : ) After a certain depth it is a moot point.

  8. Nice shots of Boston.


High Fives from Wisconsin!
