Four for Fridays!

I'm filling in again because Drew and THB's computer is in the shop.

1) Did you or your siblings have to wear hand-me-down clothes?

2) Have you ever fired a gun?

3) Merry Christmas or Happy Holidays?

4) When you were a child, did you put out milk and cookies for Santa Claus?

1. Being the only girl, no. my brothers were too far apart age-wise, so they escaped it as well.
2. When I was about ten, a .22. Biggie bought us a shot gun. So far I've avoided it.
3. Okay, here's the deal, folks, as long as you want to wish me happiness, it doesn't matter. I recognize other religions and respect them.
4. Sure did. I have happy memories of Christmases past. We didn't have a lot of money, but we had a lot of love.

1. Yes

2. Yes

3. Out of politeness I say "Happy Holiday's" although "Merry Christmas" should NOT offend anyone. I would much rather they change the phone option to press 1 for English. I don't think you should have to press ANYTHING for English.

4. Alway's, and much to our surprise, they were alway's gone, when we got up.

1. Not really as my sister is 5 years older than me.

2. No.

3. All of the above. This whole war on Christmas has been started by Fox News.

4. Yes.

Thanks for filling in.

1. Yes, of course. It was something many did back in the day. Times were hard then, too.

2. No, and I really don't ever want to. I even have issues killing spiders.

3. I use both, interchangeably. I think the big to-do over words is manufactured to keep our attention from other important issues. A greeting is a greeting. I agree with Ms. Beejay.

4. Yes, we did. My parents always used my dad's bonus for the holidays, at my mom's insistence. It was the rare time we got something new, and they went all out with the little they had. Very exciting.

1) No. My only sibling was my sister, five years older than me.

2) Not unless you count BB and pellet guns. I had a Wham-O slingshot.

3) Whatever.

4) On occasion.
