Hodgepodge Wednesday ~ Sunshine On My Shoulders & Other Happy Thoughts
Welcome to this week’s hodgepodge! I hope your summer is full of sunshine and happy times. If you wish to join in the fun, click on the picture above and visit Joyce at her lovely blog From This Side Of The Pond.
So….here we go!
1. What summer activity most takes you back to your own childhood?
2. What’s your favorite summer smell?
A walk on a sandy beach is one of my favorite things to do. I love the feel of it beneath my feet. There are always tiny treasures to find if you look closely. Love looking for sea shells with my children.
My favorite would probably be sunflower seeds. Love them on my salads in the summer. I am growing sunflowers in my garden this year. Excited to see those pretty yellow heads nodding in the sunshine.

5. What’s your favorite way to cool off on a hot summer day?
I love swimming. =) Any activity that involves water is a good idea! A perfect cool drink too, when you add a slice of lemon or orange and a sprig of mint. Icey, cold goodness!

6. Share a favorite song with the word sun or sunshine in it’s title.
John Denver’s “Sunshine On My Shoulders.” There is just something about John Denver that exudes genuineness. He was such a wonderful guy and had a great smile. Loved his music during my childhood…still do. All of his songs make me think of going home, sunny afternoons and a loving family.
7. Tell us about a time you had an exceedingly good or truly awful customer service experience. If it was awful, did you report it? Ever go back there again?
When I think of exceedingly good customer service, I always think back to a little waitress that was our favorite at our local seafood restaurant. We made it a weekly highlight to eat at Carrickers almost every Friday or Saturday night. This little lady’s name was Dot. I don’t ever think we learned her last name. But she took such great care of us and always had a smile on her face. She really seemed to enjoy her job. I think that is the highest mark of great customer service. A smile. =) It’s funny how someone who seems rather insignificant to the big picture of a human life, can make such a lasting, good impression. I haven’t seen Dot since I was in my teens…but I will always remember her good example and her smile.
8. Insert your own random thought here.
Nothing beats a sparkler exit at a wedding. Hands down the most fun event of my daughter’s wedding. The Grand Sparkler Exit. =)
