Share Your World for May 31, 2021

Now this is dedication: Melanie has Share Your World questions even on a national holiday!

What activity instantly calms you? Playing solitaire.

What’s the most spontaneous thing you’ve done lately? I don’t do much of anything spontaneously anymore. It takes too much planning.

If people receive a purple heart for bravery, what would other color hearts represent? (Example yellow heart = cowardice) They receive a Purple Heart for being injured or killed while serving in the military. I looked it up. I think Blue would be for bravery, Green would be for being able to grow things, Black would be for not being able to grow things, White for peace, Red for love, and Orange for being unable to rhyme.

What is the bravest thing you’ve ever done or witnessed someone else do? I think looking for a new job while you’re still working the old one qualifies, especially when doing so could get you fired. I’ve done that several times.

It’s Memorial Day in the United States, a day when we honor the service members who have lost their lives to ensure the safety of the people of this nation. That includes the men and women of the Armed Forces, and also includes the animals (dogs, horses, donkeys, camels, carrier pigeons, dolphins etc.) who accompanied our service members and never returned. "Thank you" is hardly enough.

  1. I remember the sign off so well and loved it when our Canadian channel 9 kept playing older movies that were hard to see otherwise like “Theatre of Blood.” I would say Red is for the number of kills you did. Blue are for the animals that saved or helped us. Orange are for the men that did the longest treks via marching or stuck in a lifeboat. Green are for the # of beautiful greenery you blew up. I guess i am morbid. Playing a dumb game on my Ipad but also making cards, reading, watching a good movie. Spontaneous….I recently bought sweat pants and pajama bottoms on sale. When I was a kid and bullied in school, my mom(bless her) told me to stand tall and never show fear. A group of 6 girls came up to me as I was heading for the bus and they were going to beat me up. I stood tall and told the one leader how silly she was that she needed 5 other girls to make her feel strong and with that I went right in between them and walked to my bus. My knees were shaking and I thought my heart was going to jump out of my chest but, to prove I was no a scaredy cat, I went off the bus and went back into the very empty school to take a drink out of the fountain. Show no fear!


  2. Thank you so much for Sharing Your World! It will ‘date’ me, but I remember that sign-off. What great choices for heart colors! Orange was especially piquant! (did I spell piquant right? O_o ) LOL Great answers, sir! Have the rest of a wonderful week!


  3. Nice share! LOL I think I would get black and orange medals but then I love the Giants so that makes sense. Have a wonderful Monday!


        1. Florida has some pretty nice options. They have so many configurations for uniforms that they have a mannequin set up in the clubhouse to show them what to wear on a given day. Remember when there was a home uniform, and a road uniform, and that was that? Charlie Finley broke that mold, but he was the only one doing it then. Now everyone’s doing it.

          1. Yes. I particularly think it’s funny that the Giants’ pitcher Brian Wilson once got fined because his shoes were “too orange!” I saw one player the other day who had rainbow colored shoes. Times have definitely changed!
