Hodgepodge Wednesday

Hello Friends ... how are y'all?

I'm thinking it's time I quit lurking in the shadows and join in the fun at Wednesday's hodgepodge!
Thanks for these great queries, Joyce!

* * *

Create an acrostic using the word LOVE:

Looking back, across culverts ... chasms, too;
Oceans - both real and immortal - 
vie for remembrance.

Does love really conquer all?  Why or why not?

No, I don't think so.
If that were the case, hearts wouldn't break -- and life-limiting diseases wouldn't stand a snowball's chance!

Tell us about a time recently where you really put your heart into something.

This is a tough one!  
I've become awfully stingy with my heartstrings.

The last time I set my heart on something was almost 3 years ago when I quit my 40+ year cigarette addiction.

What's your favorite love story?

Bridges of Madison County

Do you generally wear your heart on your sleeve, or keep your cards close to the vest?

My heart sits right there on my sleeve.
Unfortunately, I've always been overly sensitive.

What food says love to you?  Why?

What I wouldn't give for a slice of mother's egg custard pie!
She was never fond of sweets, but took real pleasure in making my father's favorite deserts.

When were you last 'tickled pink' over something?  Explain.

Just last Saturday, Mr. Sweet had my hair looking all shiny and  bouncy ... something I can't recall ever happening!
I seriously wanted to sleep with my head suspended out over the edge of the mattress!  

Insert your own random thought here.

Have I told y'all?  Dr. Choi's practically patting himself on the back over the results of Tom's last scan.  I won't pretend to understand its verbiage, but the lab's report said the remaining spots are "too small to categorize."  Yea!!!

Unfortunately, those of you who follow Joey and Rory know, theirs is a much graver situation.   
I was late discovering their story, but Rory's blog  humbles me like nothing has in a very long time.  Maybe you, too, might take something from one man's lifeIlive

Be well, be happy ...OK?
Hugs from an 86-degree day in the desert!
