Share Your World for November 25, 2019

Laura seems to still be on hiatus, so we’ll do the Share Your World questions, which come to us, as always, by way of Melanie from Sparks from a Combustible Mind. All the rules and this week’s questions are at the link above.

What did you have for dinner last night? We cooked a frozen pizza from the Home Run Inn in Chicago, one of their signature Meat Lovers with sausage (pronounced "sah-sage" on the South Side), uncured pepperoni and uncured bacon.

Look for it in your grocer’s freezer!

Would you rather go out on a Saturday night or stay in? What, and miss Columbo?

Peter Falk as Lt. Columbo

How are you, truthfully? Well, I did something to my left rotator cuff a while ago and I’m having trouble lifting my arm to put on my coat. Also, last night when I got into bed, the room started spinning, something it hasn’t done since I quit drinking. My sinuses probably backed up into my ear and threw my balance off. I’m fine now, though a little washed out, because I don’t think I slept that well, although I had some fascinating dreams. My knees hurt, of course, but that’s about par for the course

What’s the best topping/ice cream combination? If you don’t eat ice cream, what’s your favorite combination dessert? When I was in high school, my favorite combo was chocolate ice cream with pineapple topping. These days, though, my go-to dessert is warm apple pie a la mode from O’Charley’s. They’re owned by the same people who own Baker’s Square and that’s where the pies come from. Of course, we have a coconut cream pie for Thanksgiving, but that’s not ice cream.

Share Your Gratitude with a thought (quote), a picture or a short paragraph. How about a song? From 1942, Bing Crosby with the Bob Crosby Orchestra, "I’ve Got Plenty To Be Thankful For."

That’s all for now. See you in the funny papers! Happy Thanksgiving!

  1. Oh, that pizza looks yummy! I get vertigo every now and then usually when I have a cold. I am glad yours is almost gone because it can be very disconcerting.


  2. I have suffered from frozen rotator cuff, first on my left shoulder and later on my right shoulder. Very painful and each time I had to go through a couple of months of heavy-duty physical therapy to unfreeze (and un-pain) my shoulders. Brutal. I also have periodic bouts of vertigo, which is very disconcerting when it happens. Anyway, good luck with your rotator cuff malady.


    1. I thought I was having another stroke, because that’s how the first (and, thank God, the only) one started. The rotator cuff doesn’t give me trouble except in specific circumstances, so I’ve learned to live with it.

  3. I am trying to hard to keep up with my “attitude of gratitude” this week, but I am overwhelmed and irritable. I know I have so much to be thankful for as well, and I am doing my best to simmer down and enjoy the excitement of Thanksgiving rather than dread it. I won’t be doing a big spread, but I usually try to do a Thanksgiving themed brunch because I always go to work later during the day.

    I’m sorry to hear about your rotator cuff. I’ve been having a lot of shoulder pain lately myself, but can’t figure out why, or what I did to it. Hopefully you can get some relief for the issue soon!



    1. The rotator isn’t that bad (yet) and I’ve learned to live with it and make adjustments.

      When we lived closer to family, we always went to someone else’s house for Thanksgiving and Christmas. Since we’ve lived here we’ve gotten remarkably casual about the holidays, because neither of us is all that enthused about spending the day in the kitchen, so we make it real easy and don’t have anything that doesn’t cook within an hour.


    1. I hope you don’t have that dizziness again but, if you do, get thee to the doctor. Columbo is one I always loved. We had a chicken stir fry that I made and it turned out quite good. I like staying home and watching a movie but, unfortunately, we watched a movie that was frustrating. It’s called Afterlife with Liam Neeson and Christina Ricci which could have been so good but missed the mark totally. We bitched about it for almost an hour after..I hate those movies that could have been good. As for dessert combos, do liquor chocolates count? My dad loved apple pie with cheddar which I never understood but he grew up in the Ottawa Valley which has a Quebec influence and this is Quebec style. “No Man is a failure who has friends.” Love that quote


      1. I never quite got the cheese with apple pie thing, either. It’s been a good ten years since we saw a movie in the theater, mostly because I can’t get out of the seats, and we’re not big streaming fans, at least not for movies. If we land on a movie on TV and don’t like it, we can always find something else to watch…


    1. We’ve seen them so many times we know exactly what’s going to happen, and we still like them. There are a couple we don’t like (the ones with Susan Clark and Ruth Gordon: for some reason, Mary doesn’t like them, and one with Martin Landau, because the housekeeper is such a piece of work), Well-written, well-acted, and Peter Falk really brought a lot to the role.

  4. Thanks John for Sharing Your World! It’s a bit mystifying to me why your particular ping backs have to be approved before they’ll show up, but well I was more on the ball today and got it right away! Thanks! That pizza sounds delicious, as does your dessert choices… I’ve never tried chocolate ice cream with pineapple…but now I’m gonna have to! Yum!! I hope your rotator cuff injury is minor! And I hope you feel better with the vertigo and all. That’s never a good thing, is it? I loved the song too!! Jim’s Song Lyric Sunday challenge yesterday was written for that song by the way. It’d be perfect! Thanks for sharing it.! I do love me some Bing.


    1. Check your grocery store for Home Run Inn pizzas. I don’t know if you have Publix Food Stores by you, but that’s where we get ours. It’s amazing just how good frozen pizzas have gotten. The vertigo is all but gone (I still have a little, but then I still have sinus issues) and the rotator cuff isn’t that bad (yet).
