Cee’s Black & White Challenge
When you lose electricity in a storm, do you light the candles or turn on the flashlight? How many of each do you own?
I live on a boat I do have about 4-5 small teacup candles but they are as last resort! We are in a remote area and can lose power or be completely cutoff via the road for a days at a time even. My first line of defense is to always have a flashlight ready and charged in the event of a need outside. For example high winds and the need to tie down mine or others boats. I also have a small Honda Generator and the cable already run and ready at anytime. My trusty Coleman battery lights….are always ready to go. Able to give me enough lighting for reading etc.
You are given $5,000 and the chance to exchange it for one of two envelopes. One envelope contains $50,000 and one contains $500. Do you make the trade? Why or why not? I hate to be gready, but 50k seems a no-brainer. I’m getting close to retirement I hope and my 401k is turning out to be pretty unreliable. Hmm ..50k – I’d just figure out an investment that gets it growing!
What’s your first memory? My first memory .. well the one that comes to mind first is when I was about 3 yrs old and wanting/needing to go up a couple of small stairs and there was a huge -seemed huge to me anyhow- cricket or grasshopper. I didn’t know what it was and was just staring at it till my mom showed me it was alive and harmless. I don’t recall ever being afraid of bugs since -except for maybe spiders!!
What do you do if you can’t sleep at night? Do you count sheep, toss and turn, or get up and try to do something? I don’t go to bed until I am tired. Usually sometime between 2 or 3am and then I watch 1 tv show previously recorded and have my sleep timer on the tv set for max an hour. It usually takes a couple of nights to watch 1 episode of whatever the show because I fall asleep pretty quickly.
Bonus question: What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? I am grateful that my dog Sky had a successful surgery . Though minor, when anesthesia is involved there is always a bit of a risk. She is doing well and I am confident she will make a full recovery! Thank you Steve at Harbor Vet.
