Kokomo: The Weekly Hodgepodge

Want to join the party?  Go on over to From This Side of the Pond  for the Hodgepodge questions.

What would you say is the key to success?
Heck if I know that.  When I find out, I'll let you know.  I have theories on what success looks like, but I haven't been able to play it out in my life yet.
Have you ever been to the Florida Keys? Any desire to visit that part of the US of A?
No, I haven't, but I would like to. 

When and where did you last see a real live donkey? Monkey? Turkey?
Monkee monkey and donkey?  Never.  Turkey?  Other than on the table brown and crisp at Thanksgiving, nope.
An old Portuguese proverb says, 'Beware of the door with too many keys.' What do you think this means? Share an example of how this has proven true or false in your own life.
I'm not sure.  A door doesn't really have keys.  It requires a key to be opened if it's locked.  So, I don't think a door can have too many keys.  If the key opens the door, that's a good thing.
Besides your home, vehicle, and special jewelry, what is something you keep under lock and key?
Secrets of the heart.
When did you last get keyed up about something?
The Woodstock 5k in Anniston, Alabama this past Saturday.  I'm always keyed up and in desperate need of sleep the night before a race.  Adrenaline always kicks in with the excitement of race day.
Who thinks we need an easy one right about now?  Key lime pie...yes please or no thank you?
Oh yes, please.  Plus, I've had a couple of different brands of Key Lime Pie yogurt that were yummy. 
Insert your own random thought here.

Speaking of the beach...

I finished this seashell painting today.

Hmm... random thought.  I usually share a picture or a song at this point, but I've already done that.  I will say that seeing all my friends' beach vacation pictures on social media made me kind of sad.  I was happy for them, but mad at myself for still not being at the place to be able to go anywhere for fun, much less go to the beach.  Oh well, it's my own fault.  I'll just keep on working on it, and on me.


  1. I could so easily relocate to Margarittaville, FL.

    Appreciated your answers...made me laugh at some....and I must say I thought of the secrets of the heart too...but opted for chastity belt. Oh well.
