Know and Tell Friday

This is my first time to play this. It was fun!!! If you wanna play go HERE.

1. What is your favorite mode of transportation (flying, train, car, boat, etc.)? Why?
I actually love them all, but I think flying is the most convenient and easiest on the body. I have never been on a long cruise and so I am not sure how well I would like that, though I do love riding in boats!

2. If you could fly like Superman, jump and swing like Spiderman, swing on vines like Tarzan or fly on an umbrella like Mary Poppins, which would you choose?

I have always thought that being able to fly would be so awesome! It would be such a free-ing feeling without the fear of doing something like parachuting. The swinging on vines would be a blast though too.
3. You're driving down the road and you see a small cluster of people, all with their thumbs out hoping to hitch a ride with you. As you near the group you realize that the people standing there are Queen Elizabeth, Johnny Depp, Barrack Obama, Oprah Winfrey, and John Grisham. You only have room for one person. Who would you pick up?
That is a hard one. I would want to meet them all. So I think I would start with Queen Elizabeth because I would want to ask her the real scoop on Princess Diana and ask her how she could have treated her so poorly. I would drive her around for a bit and then drop her back off and pick up Barrack Obama and try and explain to him what in my opinion this country needs (which I won't go into now) and then I would drop him off and pick up Oprah. I would love to chat with her about my feelings of how she has sunk lately on the quality of her programs and tell her she needs to focus more on things that will actually help people instead of just entertain them like she used to be so good at. Then I would drop her off, even though she would probably refuse to get out, but I would tell her if she got out then she could spend more time telling Barrack what he needs to do to get elected... (which I pray does NOT happen!) like appearing on her show again, etc. I would invite John Grisham inside and pick his brain on his writing success and ask for an autographed copy of his latest book for Dave who is a huge fan . Last but NOT least...(I saved the best for last!), I would give Johnny Depp a ride. I would take him to wherever he wanted to go and for as long as he wanted. I would love to get to know what he is really like and if he is as strange as so many claim. I personally think he is probably a very nice guy. He is definitely easy on the eyes! I would have to get his autograph for my youngest son who is a huge pirate fan.

4. What was the most memorable trip you've ever taken?
That would have to be when I traveled to Europe with a college group. We went to London, Paris, Belgium, and Amsterdam. In Amsterdam a small group of us wanted to see the Red Light District and so one of the guys from another college group offered to show us where it was. It was about a mile from our hotel and so we walked through all kinds of alleys to get there. It was NOT a safe walk for a bunch of mostly young innocent girls and only one guy! I just remember thinking, "If I survive this it won't matter because if my Dad ever finds out he will KILL me." We made it to Red Light District. That is a story in itself. I tried to take some photos and a guy approached me just glaring at me. Someone else immediately came up to me and said that I better put my camera away or it will get tossed in the canal and maybe me with it! I guess those doing business there want to remain anonymous, especially from a bunch of gawking American tourists! As we were leaving we walked by a business that offered us a live 'show' (use your imagination here) for only 25 cents because we were Americans. Quite the eye opener! In Paris my friend and I got lost. We didn't know what to do until we heard some people speaking English in a pub and so went in and asked for help, but they told us they didn't speak any English! I could go on and on with the stories of that trip...

5. If you were planning a road trip with your best friend, where would you start, what would you stop to see and where would you end?
I would love to travel to New York City. I have been there before and it is a fun place to visit. Either that or the Oregon Coast. That is so beautiful there!

6. You are able to transport yourself back to any time. What would it be and why?
I would want to go back to the time that Christ lived. I would love to be in His presence and just watch and learn from Him. I think that would be amazing!
7. Would you have flown with the Wright Brothers when they first discovered air travel?
No way, no how!!!

If we gave awards for each answer, you would win for #3!! I love that you keep dropping them back off! LOL! I might climb into the back seat when you're giving Obama an ear full. That would be fun to witness.

I've never been to Amsterdam, but that's pretty interesting about no cameras in the Red Light District. Who knew?!

Thanks for joining us. Bless you, Jodi!

A woman after my own heart... I hope that does not happen, too (#3), but I'm afraid the public and the media have already placed him in office. It's hard to find anyone who will come out and say they aren't going to vote for him. Not saying McCain is better. I'm just saying.

I'd love to see NYC someday. Thanks for stopping by my blog.

Those were great--I think it would be so fun to fly.

LOL at your answer to #3.

I would love to travel back to the time of the Savior, too.
