Share Your World For March 15, 2021

Hey kids, what time is it?

It’s Howdy Doody tme!

No, it’s Share Your World time! Melanie has the questions and everything at her blog. So, let’s get going…

How well do you know your next-door neighbors? Do you like them? I don’t think we know either couple very well, but we know them to say "hi." On one side, we have a couple that runs the car wash near us. They leave early in the morning and come home late at night. Their son plays bass guitar and we hear him practicing, but it doesn’t bother me, since I used to play bass guitar, too. The couple on the other side is very nice: he works in a wine store, she’s a teacher, their daughter is at UGA and is a swimmer. He’s always good about helping Mary when she needs to wrestle the lawn mower into the van so Mary can take it to be serviced. One day I fell and couldn’t get up, and the daughter came and helped Mary get me back on my feet. Like I said, she’s a swimmer and has the muscles to prove it.

Anna’s prettier and not quite as muscular

Do you have a full length mirror? No.

Might be worth it to get one

Do you shave every day or do you like the ‘stubble’ look, or a beard? I have a beard. I grew it about six years ago when I got tired of shaving. When I started shaving, I used a safety razor with a blade, and an injector razor that I really liked, but couldn’t get the blades, so I started using the plastic ones. After years of using those, they weren’t sharp enough, so I tried to go back to a safety razor, and cut myself pretty badly, because I had forgotten how to use one and I was trying to do it left-handed because, you know, stroke. Finally I said "the hell with it) and grew a beard.

Mary likes it, so long as I don’t start looking like Billy Gibbons or Dusty Hill

How many items of clothing are in your bedroom (or closet) and not hung up? I don’t have any clothes that I actually have to hang up any more. We fold them and put them in a dresser drawer.

HEY! I’m tryna sleep here!

Do you have a happy place? Of course: Home Sweet Home.

  1. The Like button will not load, so LIKE! Best “why I grew a beard” story ever, for one, and I love that you have good neighbors 🙂


    1. Glad you enjoyed it! Some blogs always have a problem with the Like button; this is the first I’ve heard of me having an issue. The likes are handled by WordPress, as I discovered a while go…

      1. I actually encountered the loading like button on several WP blogs subsequent to one another for probably 4-5 in reading so the problem could have been WP or me, but it lasted fewer than 30 minutes for sure.

    1. I get the GIFs from

      Shaving every day can be a real pain. I did it for over 40 years (since freshman year of high school, even though all I had was peach fuzz)…

    1. People keep to themselves here as a rule, but we know a few of the people and they’re friendly. We’ve been here over 33 years and haven’t had any trouble with the neighbors (except for the kid that kept cutting through our yard).


  2. Love your answers and seeing ZZ Top…hahahaaa. I too, do not have a full length mirror…a partial one but not a full one. As for beards, thankfully no or I would be in some Freak Show(sorry for the political incorrectness.)but I do have these wayward hairs sprouting up on my chin or neck…Tweezers come in handy. Our neighbours-some are good, some are bad and some are downright ugly. My happy Place is on the couch in my home watching a movie. I have an extensive wardrobe so I have to change the winter stuff with the summer but, this past year, I wore very little that was in my closet. That was so nice and comfortable.


      1. Right now, I hardly wear makeup which is so nice to be honest. When I do put it on, I would say, about 15-20 minutes but I can do it fast and go in under 5 minutes. Right now, I am happy that I comb my hair.


        1. Combing your hair would almost be considered a necessity, especially if you have hair like mine (which is curly and gets tangled easily).


  3. Thank you John for Sharing Your World and your wonderful sense of humor! My deceased hubby had a beard almost the whole time we were married and he looked better with it than he did clean-shaven (although I never said a word about it either way). He said it was a pain in the butt to have to shave every day. Now that I’m starting to grow the ‘old lady facial hair’, I agree with him. Another ‘good’ thing about Covid. If I had a lot of chin hairs, who was to see or complain? Ziggy doesn’t care about that stuff. LOL Maybe it would be worth the time to get a full-length mirror just to watch the cat do that…. LOL Have a magnificent week John!
