I love the sunshine!

Eggsandwich04 at KS Blogs nominated me for more Sunshine Blogger Award! As a sun worshipper, I never get enough sunshine. Even though the brutal temperatures here in Nevada have driven me inside this summer – there’s always a space in my heart for a little more sunshine blog tag! Thanks Eggsandwich04, I am honored!


I want to say I love the concept of this particular blog tag, not just for it’s positivity – but because it is different every single time you are tagged with it. This community of bloggers has asked some of the most fun, insightful, silly and profound questions and the answers are just as rich.

So, the rules:

    1. Thank the blogger who nominated you in the blog post and link back to their blog.

    2. Answer the 11 questions the blogger asked you.

    3. Nominate 11 new blogs to receive the award and write them 11 new questions.

    4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo in your post and/or on your blog

I am going to skip #3 yet again as everyone I know has had a bit of sunshine – some of them multiple times. But I’m thinking about taking the opportunity to ask new questions…

Meanwhile, off to the questions I must answer 😀

What’s your favorite dinosaur?

Dinosaurs are cool! Of course, weirdo that I am, I have a favorite that you’d have to look up. Sphagesaurus is a vegetarian crocodile that lived in South America in the late Cretaceous Period. I have a “thing” about crocodilians and it tickles my fancy that this big fellow is a vegetarian (probably). In fact, there are about four different crocodilians around this period that appear to be either herbivorous or omnivorous, My artist friend Robert E. Sloan who does dinosaurs painted me a lovely little painting of the Sphagesaurus that is safely in storage so sadly I can’t share it with you 😦 Thank you for an hour down the rabbit hole of prehistoric crocodilians while I looked for the name I couldn’t remember 😛

If you could have a song play every time you enter a room, what would it be? 

This made me chuckle. You know, this used to sort of happen for me. Especially when I was a touring girl, I had certain sort of theme songs that stated “Summer is BACK” the first dance I did at clubs that I rotated through regularly.  I had a 15 year career, so there were different songs, but the first one that came to mind was “Back in Black” by AC/DC.

I’m a little more mellow these days. Maybe Tub-Thumping by Chumbawamba.

If you could do anything in the world as a career, what would it be?

I would be a horse trainer and rescuer. I would do a mash-up between these folks, Horse Humane Plus, and Sky Dog Ranch with a touch of Black Hills Wild Horse Sanctuary.  As a child taken to livestock auctions I dreamed of buying the “dinks” before the kill buyer got them, taking them home, feeding them up, and giving them training so they could find wonderful forever homes. Now I am terribly concerned about the BLM’s policy of managing wild horses to death, and about losing the bloodlines that only those horses carry. About losing the intelligence, endurance, and power these horses have after evolving to live in the worst places in the West on their own. So when I’m not rescuing auction horses, I would do my best to grab entire herds as the BLM rips them off their range and give them a new home where they can go on being wild horses and use birth control methods to keep the old lines going strong into the future. Which is the combo of Skydog (who tries to keep families together, but gelds all stallions) and Black Hills (who are actively preserving wild horse genetics).

If you were a flavour, what would you be?

Butterscotch. You had to be there.

Which Pokemon starter would you choose; Bulbasaur, Squirtle, or Charmander?

And this is why I am not the most successful trainer ever. I choose YOU, Charmander! Because I like salamanders! Salamanders are cool! I believe my friend Pinkie would probably tell me that Bulbasaur would be a better strategic choice. But I like salamanders!

What can you talk about for hours?

OMG. Does this presuppose that someone would listen to me? I can rant endlessly about the greed based medical system in the U.S. but that’s no fun. I can tell stories about my dancer days for hours. I can talk horses until everyone is asleep. Almost any science-y or gaming subjects, books, and yeah, probably anime, too. Oh, and crime, serial killers, and conspiracy theories.

If you were given a million dollars today, how would you spend it?

You know, these days a million dollars just doesn’t go that far. I’d buy us a ranch, and a couple of good vehicles. (I want a fun zippy city car, and a truck for the ranch work) I’d buy one of those condo’s or some sort of comfy small dwelling in downtown so we could stay there during the week for close access to hubby’s dialysis clinic. I’d stash some cash for security, buy a nice new Class C RV, and then give a lot of it away to various charities (like the ones mentioned earlier), as well as some deserving individuals I know.

None of that would happen in the real world. But I just deleted the whole greed based medicine rant because, hey, sunshine. 😀 In the real world, I think the best thing I could do is donate the entire lump sum to the wonderful dialysis clinic we are working with now and we’ll just carry on as we are.

Would you rather time travel to the past or the future? Why?

Ugh. I hate time travel. Makes my head spin. If I can take hubby I’d go to the future because maybe they’ll have developed some better treatments, or even a real cure, for his health condition. Otherwise, meh. I might go into the future just to see how things turned out.

Name at least one thing that you can do in five minutes.

I just fell on the floor laughing. I can do that in five minutes. I can open my mouth and completely screw something up in five minutes or less! But for something sunshiny – I can do a quick sketch of anything you like, or I can fold an origami crane or a fish.

Where would you go in case of a zombie apocalypse?

I’ll have you know I am strongly resisting the urge to say at least a dozen snarky things that come to mind instantly about how would we know, most Americans act like zombies anyway, etc. Cough.

I would fire up the ol’ Firefly and head to the least populated area I could get to. Maybe the mountains between Mexico and New Mexico (USA). There’s a whole tribe of Apache been hiding in there for over a hundred years. Of course, I’d also have to hide from the Apache.

Another good idea might be to head to Lake Mead and steal a houseboat. Float around. Fish. Can zombies swim? Zomboat anyone?

What would you do to relax?

Go outdoors. Find a tree to smooze with or better yet a body of water, river preferably.


I have one more Sunshine Blogger tag to do, so I think I’ll hold off until I do that one, and think up questions and tag people after it. I’m sorry if I’m not very sunshiny today. Yesterday was a very long day dealing with some (if this makes sense) routine medical emergency situation with hubby. He’s fine. Things actually turned out quite well – as good as they could have I believe. It’s been a bit of a difficult month so far.

Sunshine is good 😀






    1. AAARRRRRRRGGGHHHHHHH – now that’s going to be stuck in my head for DAYS. I remember John Denver mainly for a horrible, never ending argument I had with a friend over him. She was a big John Denver fan and was telling how squeaky clean and perfect he was and I mentioned he had been arrested for possession of marijuana. He was , of course, “just holding it for a friend” (for those of you not born in the 60s, this was the standard excuse used by all pot smokers). Not to mention his song “Rocky Mountain High”. Woo boy. Anyhow. I liked this song until they played it 100000000 times a day on the local radio station (as they used to do). Showing my age here.

    1. LOL. Yes. I have some fun ones. Some scary ones. Lots to say. I’m just a bit leery of saying it these days. Amazing the things that can get you attacked online…

  1. You are lucky you are not a Gen-One Kid Summer or I would have scolded you for picking Charmander… Your reasoning are good enough! It is still the wrong starter but as a Charmander it’s cute! Yet there can only be one number 1. As for strategies.. Char would win.. but the right answer was Bulbasaur nonetheless xD
    It is number 1 in the pokédex so it will always be my number 1. I am super happy you remembered that I am a Bulbasaur girl though so all is good! I guess now we need to find ourselves a squirtle girl for our squad!

    I want to here the stories about your dancers days as well .. make a post about that!

    1. Well…my number one is Ponyta, of course. I about broke a leg getting to the park down the street when I saw a ponyta there. And then I realized it was like the daily ponyta – sometimes two or three. That park saw a lot of me! But then I wouldn’t fight them in the gym at the park because I couldn’t bear they might get hurt. Yah. Terrible trainer. I could write a lot of posts about dancer days. I’m debating it. There are people, you know, who find my old career objectionable, and think not very nice things about dancers and I have gotten VERY cautious about putting myself out there to be whipped up on. Don’t get me wrong – I’m proud of my life and my career. I’m just not in to ASKING for meanness in my life because you know, I obsess. So, I’m thinking about it.

      1. If you go with Ponyta , Bulbasaur is a better adition to your team xD while charizard gets the flying type, Ponyta can actually fly and bounce! Galarian Ponyta is one of my favourites so we can both have one!

        About the dancer stories, I get that, to me though it is just another job, one with a more interesting scene then at your local velcro factory! If you dont feel comfy putting it out there but wanna tell it , you could always go third person, with June’s story or Autumn or Miss Winters exotic adventures 😉

      2. I love the Galarian Ponyta! I’ve been looking for a list of all the equine based pokemon. Just another rabbit hole.

        Miss Winters Erotic Adventures is a great title. Now to put a story with it. I do think I might want a level of plausible deniability 😛
