SHARING OUR WORLD, WEEK 22

Share Your World – 2014 Week 22

Regarding animals would you prefer not having them around or having domestics pets, farm animals, or seeing them in nature or the zoo?

We do not allow animals in our house. We don’t even like them.

Are you a collector of anything?

I don’t collect anything. Nothing. Never. Our home is clean and uncluttered.

If you could know the answer to any question, besides “What is the meaning of life?”, what would it be?

 What are the winning numbers for tomorrow’s Power Ball drawing?

If you were to treat yourself to the “finer things” what would you treat yourself to?

A brand new house with no stairs and a really GREAT kitchen.

  1. The photos with the dogs just made me laugh out loud when I saw the eyes of the one in front, like “hey I’m here too!” Fabulous. And I love your quick witted responses, rather than the usual staid ones (like mine) great read. 😀 😀

  2. I once lived in a house with no stairs. It had its benefits, but was rather boring and lacked character. The “me” house I’ve lived in the almost thirty years has stairs EVERYWHERE.

    My thought used to be, when I reached the tarnished golden years, installing a slide from top floor to bottom, and a person-sized dumb waiter with hydraulic pulleys to come back up. {{sigh}} Now ’tis evident I knew little then about arthritis and stamina.

    A reversing escalator? Or perhaps the hydraulic dumb waiter, with a cabana boy to hoist me up and down? 😀

    1. They make stair lifts. They aren’t terribly expensive. We are just too poor to get one. Kind of makes me feel trapped. I’d be happy with boring if I didn’t have to haul this decrepit old ass up two flights of stairs to get in or out of the house.

  3. Love the witty answers. Wouldn’t expect anything less from you. 😀

    I live in a one-level and I think the biggest benefit is that the laundry is on the first floor. I think I’ve been down in my basement maybe a dozen times since I moved in, and I’ve been here almost three years.

    1. We moved here from a three-story townhouse in Boston. The handwriting was on the wall — and my back, knees and hips. In the very near future, we would be unable to get from the first floor to the top floor without a stair lift. Besides, the condo had electric heat and the price of keeping the place warm in the winter was like a second mortgage.

      Our house is on one level, but to get to it, there are two 6-step flights and that has gotten more and more difficult for both of us. For Garry, who is the grocery hauler, just carrying packages from the door where UPS leaves them to our living quarters is a killer. I’d do a LOT to not have those stairs. And a big, new shiny kitchen … maybe a Jacuzzi bathtub too 🙂

        1. We used to have an outdoor hot tub, but we gave it away eventually. Maintaining it and paying the electric bill (those things use a LOT of juice) and buying all those chemicals was too much. An indoor bath-Jacuzzi seems a much better way to go.

          More kitchen cabinets and MORE COUNTER SPACE!!

  4. You did have a lot of fun with these questions. Your photos are great as it is. I’m sorry you have stairs. We purposely don’t have any, but then I’ve been physically unable to walk them for years. We even have ramps off our patios for me (and our pugs).
