January 29

Dear Pothole Street Department,

When it snows 5 inches, that is when it is time to get out the snow plows and the salt.

Plow my street then.

Do not wait till 4 days later when everything has been packed down into ice, and plowing does absolutely no good whatsoever.

Also, if it snows only about an eighth of an inch, like yesterday, my street doesn’t need plowed and salted 3 times.

Sincerely,

I could do a MUCH better job

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now, on to the questions.

  1. When did you last feel you were required to jump through meaningless hoops to get something you wanted?
  2. What kinds of hula hoop memories do you have?
  3. How do you feel about basketball?
  4. What do you think of hoop earrings?
  5. What’s your favorite Whoopi Goldberg movie?

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

1.   Yesterday when I was doing my taxes.

2.  I stunk really bad.

3.  Blech!!!

4.  I love hoop ear rings, but not the humongous ones.

5.  I don’t much care for Whoopi, plus she doesn’t have eye brows…ewwwwwwwwww!

    4. I like them but they catch in my scarf.So I guess they’re just for warm weather
    5. Sister Act 1& II . I don’t like Whoopi but she made some good movies. She is TOO liberal & too ProAbortion for me. That was not P.C. but do Icare???

  3. 1. This week working with Sir Son’s high school transcripts.
    2. I was the hula-hoop Queen. I can still swing a good hula-hoop, much to the amazement and embarrassment of my kids.

    2. My coordination and hula hoops don’t go well together.
    3. I played on our school’s (it was a very small school) basketball team in Grade 8. The only reason I played basketball or baseball, or did track, was so I could go on the field trips. There were boys from other schools on those field trips! That was my only motivation (don’t tell my 2 daughters)
    4. Hoop earrings are okay, but they do get kind of big sometimes.
    5. Corrina, Corrina. One of my favourite movies.

  8. Meaningless hoops – every day at work
    Hula hoop memories – It was a lot easier when I was a kid (and had no hips!)
    Basketball – love watching my kids play
    Hoop earrings – dangerous, scared of getting ripped out of my ear!
    Whoopi Goldberg – Jumpin’ Jack Flash. Ahh, I love the 80s!

  9. Yes, as Mayor CC of Pothole, you would do MUCH better!
    My daughter has had tons of snow this year. The city has never plowed or salted their streets. Her and the neighbors plowed their own street with their snow shovels – crazy!

    jump through meaningless hoops – – Well, most of our tax forms have arrived – will be jumping that major pain of a hoop, shortly.

    hula hoop memories — Hula-hooping in the yard, on a hot summer day…then spinning around until you’re good and dizzy and unable to stand. Then we hoop and tackle each other and the hoop breaks.

    basketball? — Unless it’s my kids playing, I couldn’t give a hoot about basketball. That annoying squeak of the tennis shoes gets on my nerves. –

    hoop earrings? –they give me 60s flash backs

    Whoopi Goldberg — Sister Act was cute. I really, really can’t stand Whoopi.

  10. 1. meaningless hoops: dressing up for dinner every night we visit my in laws.

    2. hula hoops: i was the all time best when 10.

    3. bball: since all my kids were huge bball players or fans, gotta’ love it.

    4. hoop earrings: my husband gave me some hollow, gold hoops that are super
    light weight and VERY cool.

    5. “sister act”

  11. 1. Trying to find lamp for bedroom.
    2. Not bad at the hula hoop, but better at doing the ‘twist'(when I was younger).
    3. Don’t care.
    4. Doesn’t do much for my looks, but then, nothing does. Looks like something to grab ahold of and yank.
    5. Can’t stand Whoopie.

  12. 1. When did you last feel you were required to jump through meaningless hoops to get something you wanted?
