Share Your World – July 2, 2018

Photo taken when I was 20 years old.

Tell us about your first bicycle or car?

What fictional world or place would you like to visit?

If you could have someone follow you around all the time, like a personal assistant, what would you have them do?

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination. 

Even though I oftentimes will add photos to my answers, it is not a requirement to participate in Share your World.

I will post four different questions each week for you to answer.  There are two ways which you can participate.

  1. Create a SYW  post.  Then post the link to your blog in my comment box or leave your answers in the comments box of my blog.
  2. To make it easy for others to check out your photos, title your blog post “Share Your World” or “SYW” tag.
  3. Remember to Follow My Blog to get your weekly reminders.

I usually will respond to your entry on your blog, rather than on my page.

For the Love of Challenges

I’ve put together a list of challenges and their hosts.  So if you know a challenge host, please direct them to my blog.  Feel free to contact me anytime.  I hope everyone will be able to use my lists.



Tell us about your first bicycle or car?  I don’t remember much about my first bicycle.  All I know is I wanted a 10-speed bike when I was a teenager and never did get one.  My first car though was my life saver.  I called her “Bobbie” and had her for 17 or 18 years and put on nearly a million miles.  Bobbie was a 1979 Mercury Bobcat.  The Bobcat was Mercury’s version of the Pinto.  It was typical 1970s orange color and everyone could spot it from a million miles.  I ended up getting her engine rebuilt once.  It took Chris, a car salesman and their finance officer to convince me to replace her.  Mind you she was starting to rust, the knob to open the passenger window was broken and she was just plumb wore out.  She was a fun car to drive.s

Gilmore Girls: A Year in the Life – Date Announcement – Netflix

What fictional world or place would you like to visit?  I like small town living so I would say the town from the TV show “The Good Witch” which is Middleton, or the town the “Gilmore Girls” lived in Stars Hollow.  Those are the ones that come to mind.  A nice beautiful and friendly planet from any of the Star Treks would work too.

If you could have someone follow you around all the time, like a personal assistant, what would you have them do?  A personal chef who also cleans the kitchen.  I’m in a place in my life where I am actually starting to like food again and digest it properly.  So that would be real nice.

What did you appreciate or what made you smile this past week?  Feel free to use a quote, a photo, a story, or even a combination.   

We had a very strange week last week.  Although the week ended up on a wonderful note.  Chris and I went to dinner with a friend of ours.  And yesterday we were able to take long naps in the afternoon after a nice swim.

  1. Did you literally put close to a million miles on the Bobcat or is that just an expression? I can’t imagine a 1979 car lasting that long but if it did that’s amazing! Makes me feel better that I put close to 7000 miles on my new Honda since April.

    1. It’s real. I really did put close to a million miles. I actually got a pretty good oil leak fairly early on. And my mechanic (who took care of it for years) said they’d have to pull the engine to repair it and I’ll never got through that much oil. Although I probably did, but it took a decade to do it. So my I ended up putting a quart of oil in a week. Kept the oil fresh. The only thing I had to do on long trips is make sure I had plenty of oil. The car ran like a charm. When I did finally get my engine rebuilt, I also got a news transmission and radiator. Other than that it was breaks, clutch and tune ups and a few timing belts.

      1. That’s awesome. I used to put two quarts of oil in my Mustang at a time and always carried extra. But it only had about 70,000 miles so it may have been my fault. I would have considered fixing it but I wrecked it racing friends. Your story has a much happier ending. 🙂

        1. My mentor at the time had a mustang. When I showed her the key which looked like a Ford’s back then, she just said, you’ll be sorry you bought a Ford. I never regretted it. I did like her red and white mustang though.


  2. My first car was a yellow Pontiac LeMans. Bucket seats, black vinyl roof. I loved that car. I had it for a good many years and it faded pretty badly. I got a ticket parked at the beach once and the officer wrote ‘Car color: Beige.’ I was insulted.

  3. My first car was a 73 T-bird my brother sold me, learning to drive that tank made me able to drive small cars really well. I could park that thing on a dime, I literally could have lived in it if necessary, it was so big!
    I always loved The Jetsons and all of their modern inventions. Plus, cartoon space was cool. Honestly, though, I am sick of the suburbs and long to live in a small town.
    If I could have the equivalent of a personal assistant, I would need her to get my office organized. I’ve lost more than I’ve found, don’t know where anything is, and probably keep doing the same things over and over again.
    I appreciated all the time I got to spend with my hubby while he was between jobs, we had kind of a “staycation” since he will likely not get vacation this year.

  4. My first car was your first car’s first cousin — but mine was a British racing green Pinto. But Garry’s first car was a bright orange Dodge Challenger convertible that he kept for more than 20 years. He loved that car!
