Catching Up on the Friday 5s

 All ten of these are from Scrivener's Friday 5 page.

Friday 5 for March 18: Take me to the old playground

1. When did you most recently swing on a swing?

Probably around 1970. It's been ages ago.

2. On what issue have you teeter-tottered?

Not too sure who I'd like to see as the next Governor of Hawaii. It depends on the issues they support like lowering taxes, TMT and those they oppose, like RAIL.

3. How close is your residence to a park, and when did you last visit?

Ala Moana Beach Park, like last month... I should go more often, but lately work has kept me away. No time.

4. How capable are you with a charcoal grill?

I don't own one, I don't grill, I live in a building. It's not allowed.

5. With what are you playing hide-and-seek?

A few things that I don't want to mention.

Friday 5 for March 11: Chocolate-covered mothballs: they always satisfy!

1. How did you have it your way this week?

I got to do most of the things I wanted to do this week.

2. Where do you want to go today?

As mostly a homebody, I prefer to go home.

3. How have you recently taken a licking but kept on ticking?

Well, I had a heart attack a few years ago. I am still here today.

4. In what manner are you thinking different(ly) these days?

I'm mostly set in my ways. I don't change my opinions very often. Can't think of anything right off hand where I am thinking differently.

5. This weekend, how will you indulge because you’re worth it?

Indulging is expensive and I have to hold back since gas prices are flying sky high, thanks to Biden cutting off the Keystone Pipeline and the war between Russia and the Ukraine only making matters worse. Re-open that damn pipeline. Trump had that correct... now look where we are! Gas prices higher than $5!!!!

I'm adding this question from the week previous Friday 5.

6. What’s a good song with ”yellow” in its lyrics or title?

Not too many yellow songs I can think of... but here's a list.

  1. Goodbye Yellow Brick Road - Elton John (my favorite yellow song)
  2. Yellow Bird - Arthur Lyman
  3. Yellow - Coldplay
  4. Mellow Yellow - Donovan
  5. Yellow Submarine - The Beatles
  6. Big Yellow Taxi - Joni Mitchell (1970 version)
  7. Yellow River -  Christie
  8. Yellow Ledbetter - Pearl Jam
  9. Yellow Rose of Texas - Johnny Lee
  10. Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Ole' Oak Tree - Tony Orlando & Dawn
