Rory’s Friday Four: 18th September

The Friday Four
Ah questions, questions, questions – what is it about you and questions Rory?
Simple, l just like asking questions.
Some relatively simple ones today for this Friday however…
1 What three senses could you NOT live without? Discuss why…

Taste: I love my food.
Hearing: I have a natural gift and play piano by ear
Sight: there are so many beautiful things to see.

2 What is your favourite of these two and why? Pen or Pencil.
Pencil. I have always preferred to write with a pencil. Not just because I can erase it, but for some reason my writing seems tidier and you can actually read it!
3 What are your top 3 colours and why are they your favourites?
Green : there are so many different shades throughout all of the seasons.
Blue: the sky and sea is blue and on sunny days,  find both relaxing and calming.
Purple/mauve. I just love the colour and Nature, like green above, is full of it.
4 Are you able to list 10 basic smells and if so what are they?
Tobacco (yuk)
Fresh bread/baking
Fried onions
Fresh laundry
Freshly cut grass


About pensitivity101

I am a retired number cruncher with a vivid imagination and wacky sense of humour which extends to short stories and poetry. I love to cook and am a bit of a dog whisperer as I get on better with them than people sometimes! In November 2020, we lost our beloved Maggie who adopted us as a 7 week old pup in March 2005. We decided to have a photo put on canvas as we had for her predecessor Barney. We now have three pictures of our fur babies on the wall as we found a snapshot of Kizzy, my GSD when Hubby and I first met so had hers done too. On February 24th 2022 we were blessed to find Maya, a 13 week old GSD pup who has made her own place in our hearts. You can follow our training methods, photos and her growth in my blog posts. From 2014 to 2017 'Home' was a 41 foot narrow boat where we made strong friendships both on and off the water. We were close to nature enjoying swan and duck families for neighbours, and it was a fascinating chapter in our lives. We now reside in a small bungalow on the Lincolnshire coast where we have forged new friendships and interests.

    Hey Di, thanks for taking part – it’s strange you say that about pencil and something that reminded me that when l am writing by hands – which l am terrible at as l have serious problems with hand to eye coordination – but like you when l write in pencil, it is more legible – your comment reminded me of that – that might be something l should consider again 🙂

    Nice bold colours too which rich variety 🙂

    • I used to love my coloured pencils as a kid and would always get some in my Christmas stocking. Hubby bought me a colouring book and pencils one year but despite the colour on the pencil, the lead was the same for greens and blues, and orange, red and yellow. My SIL sent me some too and they had the same issue. Lucky you if you’ve got a set with bold colours!

    I must disagree to an extent with your assessment of the smell of tobacco. Tobacco itself smells divine. Burning tobacco on the other hand, depends largely on the kind. Some pipe tobaccos smell quite good, and nostalgia plays a large roll in my love of the smell of a good cigar or Camel cigarettes, as those were smoked by my father and grandfather, respectively, but most other tobacco when set alight, does smell rather atrocious, as does the lingering smell of almost any cigar or cigarette after the smoking is done.

    • Hi Frank. As an ex smoker, the smell of cigarettes is now most unpleasant, and I could never stand the smell of cigars. However, what you say about some pipe tobacco is true. Both of my grandfathers smoked a pipe and the smell brings back fond memories.

    I love blue and purple too.

    I’d prefer the sense of touch over taste but that’s just me…
