QUESTIONS

What is one topic you really like to talk about? Or something you really want to tell people?
What do you normally never tell strangers about yourself? (be general, I don’t need to know details or invade privacy)
Have you ever broken anything?  (can be health related, emotion related, or situation related – you define “broken anything” for your own satisfaction)
Is having a big ego a negative trait or positive trait?

My answers:

What is one topic you really like to talk about? Or something you really want to tell people?
Dogs. I know a lot of dogs. I love dogs. Dogs love me (usually). In a lot of cases, I’d rather have the company of dogs to people. Did I say I love dogs?

Now we have Maya.

What do you normally never tell strangers about yourself? (be general, I don’t need to know details or invade privacy)
Nothing Political or Religious.

Have you ever broken anything?  (can be health related, emotion related, or situation related – you define “broken anything” for your own satisfaction)
Probably not, but I did take a sledgehammer to a wall and demolished it with practically one blow. You can read about it here. 
Addendum:
Having read other bloggers response, it never occurred to me about broken bones, as I’d taken it as more about breaking things on purpose. Now where did I get that idea from? So to answer the question properly after my DOH moment

No broken bones, but glassware and crockery definitely, plus plenty of fingernails!.

Is having a big ego a negative trait or positive trait?
I suppose it depends on the individual and circumstances. IMO having a big ego is a very negative trait, and thus the harder the fall when everything goes belly up.

GRATITUDE SECTION:

What aspects of your city or neighborhood are you grateful for?

We have made friends here.

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.

    I am a dog lover also but haven’t had one for a long time, too hard to manage now.

    • It was over 15 months since we lost Maggie that we found Maya. She is beautiful but we have our work cut out for us.

      • She’s worth the effort though as she is learning every day. We are making such good progress in most areas, but the lead work is still heavy going.

        One of my faves was a German Shepard wolf mix. Dropped off in a box on the road with his brothers and sisters at a recreation center where my neighbor worked. She brought him home and her mother wouldn’t let her keep him, so she brought him over to our house and we fell in love immediately. He was the most loving huge friendly dog to all of our neighbors and friends. But if you were a stranger and tried to enter our backyard, you would probably be in big trouble. One time the meter reader didn’t read the sign I had posted around saying do not enter this yard without coming to the front door first. I heard Smokey barking and went out to the backyard and the meter reader was inside the fence frozen. Smokey was laying down looking at him then he’d look at me and then he look at him asking, shall I eat him or not? I miss him very much.

      • Wonderful story of a gentle giant. Any photos?

      • Pity. I bet he was gorgeous though.

    Cool answers

  3. Thanks Di for Sharing Your World! Maya is indeed a beautiful girl! Getting so big too! The pics of your fur kids are very precious and Maggie still brings a bit of a tear to my eye. She is missed. It’s a good idea in these days to keep our religious and political points of view close to our chest because (at least over here) you can’t tell who might just shoot you for having an opinion. Wonderful answers and beautiful meme you shared today too! Have a great week! 🙂

    I always felt that dogs understand you, I guess cos they react to your emotions, it feels like they’re more emphatic

    • All of our dogs have been sympathetic to our moods, knowing when to keep out of the way in an emergency or when to come in and offer comfort, Maggie in particular. I get on better with dogs most of the time.

    It’s lovely that you have friends where you live.

    • I know. We made friends on the boat too and discovered it was not us responsible for the fair weather action so those we thought as friends when we were in the cottage.
