MilSpouse Friday Fill-In #42

MilSpouse Friday Fill-In(please feel free to use this!)

I love learning more about my fellow MilSpouse bloggers. So I created a weekly meme. Each week, I’ll post a list of questions on Thursday (so you can have your blog ready on Friday). Come back here on Friday (like today!) and enter your blog post into Mr. Linky below so others know who else participated and we can all visit other blogs. Please leave a comment too! And please feel free to use the button above!

This week’s questions are:

1. Do you think civilians, in general, understand the meaning of Memorial Day?
I think many may have an idea of what it is, but I think the true meaning of it is buried in SALES! PICNICS! CELEBRATION OF THE BEGINNING OF SUMMER! and all that jazz. Growing up, my mom made sure I knew what it was about but Memorial Day was still more about the unofficial start to summer.

2. What are your plans for the Memorial Day Weekend?
I have no clue. Something has happened (I’ll blog about it later) and now Huzzy is trying to get immediate leave to go to Illinois to help his brother out and help with the estate. Don’t worry, nothing has happened to a person… just an unexpected schedule change and now he can’t go in July like he planned.

3. What skill/talent do you wish you had? submitted by The 3 Turners
I know I have the talent to come up with great photo ideas/angles/shots and to critique them after they are taken… but I want to get better at the actual execution of them!

4. Which came first: the chicken or the egg? submitted by I Married Into The Army
I’d say the chicken. Who else would sit on the egg to keep it warm? My big butt would crush it.

5. What is the best thing about your post (base)? The worst? submitted by Randomly, Robyn
I like the fact that our base is nearly entirely wooded. They kept the trees if they didn’t have to take them down. Also, if you enter Main Gate… you’ll come up over a huge hill and the site of gorgeous snow-capped (most of the year) mountains greet you. I swear I hear Heavenly Choirs sing as I come over that hill. Love it.

The worst? Well, for me the worst is the winters that are drizzly rain and cloudy… but that worst is better than living in Michigan where they are downright bitter cold and cloudy.

Please don’t forget to add your blog link to Mr. Linky below by clicking on it. But also if you are not participating in MilSpouse Friday Fill-In this week, please do not put your link on there… I will remove it. It is unfair to others who do participate.

  1. I love your answer to the third question; I’d like to improve my photographic skills, too.

    Also, now I want to drive over that hill aboard your base. 🙂

  2. I’m glad you clarified your question 2 otherwise I would have been worried!

    And totally agree with #3. I have a nice fancy camera and no patience to sit down and learn how to REALLY use it.

  3. I found that first question harder to answer than I thought! This is my second round of Milspouse fill-insa nd I have to say I love them! Thank you for posting them!

  4. agree with the photography for sure. I feel like I miss out on TRULY capturing a lot of great moments because all I have is the digital camera I got in high school. I envy people who are good with photo editing programs and fancy lenses and such!
