Joyce, thank you for these gentle prompts
... helping jump-start my writing block!

"April showers bring May flowers", or so the saying goes. Has your April been filled with showers?
Um, no. Last week our humidity levels hovered between 7% - 9%.
Do you carry an umbrella, wear a slicker, or make a run for it?
I love umbrellas! Then again, given all the product I put in my hair, the raindrops would probably bounce right off.
Besides rain, what else has filled your April?
Too many doctors' appointments and worry genes running amok. Not going there right now.
What's something you could give a 30-minute presentation on at a moment's notice and with zero preparation?
Oh wow, just the idea of giving a presentation makes my teeth chatter!
'Suppose I could stretch out the preparation of seafood crepes with champagne sauce ..... my only take-away from cooking class.
Share with us a favorite food memory from childhood.
On the few occasions when my dad was home for Sunday dinner -- once the roast was ready, he'd give me a little crust of bread smeared with salted marrow. It's been more than 50 years, but I'll never forget that seemed like the best taste in the history of EVER.
What's a song you thought you knew the lyrics to, but later discovered you were wrong?
No one song comes to mind, but I've championed the art of "la-la-la'ing" along to more than a few stanzas!
According to one travel website, the most over-rated tourist attractions in America are: Niagra Falls, Hollywood Walk of Fame, Times Square, Epcot, Seattle Space Needle and Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market. How many of these have you seen in person?
I've not visited the Space Needle or Faneuil Hall.
Did you feel like a tourist? Did you care?
Aside from someone (in Manhattan) cautioning me, "Please don't embarrass me by standing on the street corner and looking up." I never considered being a tourist a bad thing.
Tell us about a place (not on the list) you've visited that might be considered a tourist trap, but you love it anyway.
Your signature clothing item?
I've worn heels for so many years, my feet sometimes feel 'off' in sneakers.
What's an experience you've had you think everyone should experience at least once?
Seeing the Grand Canyon up close and in person can't be beat.
Unlike her more exuberant sister ...a few years ago our pragmatic g'daughter cracked me up: "Wow. I thought we were just going to see a big hole in the ground."
Insert your own random thought here.
Color me excited!
We recently finalized plans to visit son and family in Alabama next month. Not only does our long layover in Tampa allow for lunch with BF Debbie ... but I'm hoping to meet and break bread with blog pal Rick and his wife!
Have yourselves a beautiful rest of the week, m'friends!
Hugs from Phoenix,
