Tuesday's Questions Best Answer!

Who Won? 
Hello and welcome to Tuesday's Question.  I began asking questions in 2007 to get to know my readers and I've been asking them on and off ever since.

The idea to get to know the people who were visiting my blog by asking questions, worked, but lately, I realized that I was the one asking all the questions.

In the beginning I thought the questions would stimulate conversation and they did, but most of the time it was a one-sided conversation, meaning, everyone was answering my question.

Besides, I've been questioning my visitors for so long, I decided to spice up Tuesday's Question a bit and choose a best answer and the winner would have the opportunity to ask the next week's question and choose the next best answer, and so on...

The first person, and now, co-author of A Nice Place In The Sun, to win Best Answer To Tuesday's Question, was Sandee of Comedy Plus, who asked an excellent Tuesday's Question last week.

This was before I had all of the particular's aired out, meaning, Sandee should have had the opportunity to pick the next best answer, so if our winner from last week's Tuesday's Question would rather not choose who wrote the best answer it will be up to Sandee to decide.

So, are you ready to know who wrote the best answer?

   Cruisin Paul of Mr. Cruiser's Notes won the "The Best Answer," to last week's Tuesday's Question!

Last week, Sandee's Tuesday's Question was, 

"What is one of your fondest memories of your childhood. Is it food, a smell, an event, a holiday, or just snuggling with your favorite cat or dog? Was it a vacation or some other outing. I know we all have some great memories. Well I hope you do." 

And here was Paul's Answer: 

"I had so many wonderful experiences in my life but the one that sits in my mind is when we went to Uncle Jess & Aunt Bertha's vacation spot along Lake Huron. I remember Uncle Jess telling me that we are going to Grindstone City. WOW, I couldn't wait but surprise, Grindstone City was a great big grindstone along the lake. There was no city. Boy did we all have a laugh. It was fun drinking water from pipe from the ground, sleeping in the loft and just having fun by the lake. Uncle Jess & Aunt Bertha cared so much for us. We enjoyed their cabin until we all got old and they eventually died. It was a great time for all of us.
Have a great Tuesday. See ya."

Well...the link didn't turn out, but Messy and Sandee, and the rest of the visitors to Mr. Cruiser's Notes who answered Paul's question, I will post a link to your blogs.

Thank you for participating....:)))))

I like this idea to involve your readers. Also I love the name of your blog with "nice" added to make it quite different from the ironic Dreisser novel title.

Sandee said...

I don't think it matters at all. When you go from the cold and the snow of Canada into the tropics you are more interested in the warm and the beauty. I don't think it makes a bit of difference. You're warm and doing what you love...cruising.

Great question Paul.

Have a fabulous day Annie. Big hug to you and tons of scritches to Simon. ♥♥♥

This is a great way to spread out the fun! Thanks for thinking of it and implementing it!

Paul Pietrangelo said...

Thank you Ann you involving my blog with this. I totally enjoyed this Tuesday Question and Sandee's answer was amazing. Thanks again Ann. See ya.

Hi, greetings from me! You have a lovely blog. Have a wonderful weekend!

Ann Clemmons said...

Thank you, Jan and thanks for complimenting my blogs title. You know, I had forgotten about that movie until after I wrote the title? I cannot believe I did, but I did and I'm glad because I might have gone with a different one.

And I love the metaphor, A Nice Place In The Sun, meaning, a safe place to be. We all have our special places, whether it's a real place or a place within our imagination.

Plus, I'm so happy you like the idea of involving my readers. I decided to try it, and I wasn't sure how it would be received. Thank you so much for your visit and again for your wonderful comments. :))

I'm sorry for the belated reply. :))

Ann Clemmons said...

Hey Sandee,

I love your answer, as always. I felt like I was aboard a boat traveling into the tropics.

Paul came up with a great question, didn't he? And again, I adore your answer.

"Big hugs" xooxo

Ann Clemmons said...

Thank you, Messy! I'm so glad you like it...I hope I can keep it going, actually, I'm determined, even if there may be times when I'm lagging behind, ANPITS. makes me happy and you are one of the reasons it does.

Meaning, I'm lucky to have some great readers.

I love this sentence you wrote: "This is a great way to spread out the fun!"

'Cause, that is what I intend to do.

Thanks again, Messy.


Ann Clemmons said...

Paul, you asked a great question that from the looks of it, everyone enjoyed answering. And Thank you!

Again, you did a great job! And I appreciate it, truly I do.

And yes, Sandee's answer is fabulous. She had better watch out, because she may be asking a lot of questions...laughing.

See you, back!

Motherhood- Courage

Motherhood is an art impossible to explain, one which requires a vast sea of love, devotion, compassion, and understanding, unmatched by any affection we will ever know again.- Ann Clemmons






Words are the core of our souls, without written, vocal or lyrical expression we lose sight of one another or worse, ourselves. Words bring forth the essence of the human spirit; so express yourself without abandon.

Ann Clemmons

Written Phrase

Why is it that those we should know or believe turn out to be the ones we least understand? I suppose the world is an illusion until we find our way home.-Ann Clemmons

Favorite Phrase

I remember I used to half believe and wholly play with fairies when I was a child. What heaven can be more real than to retain the spirit-world of childhood, tempered and balanced by knowledge and common-sense...

Beatrix Potter’s Journal, 17 November 1896, from the National Trust collection.

The Storyteller, by Dawn Drover

Alone in her world
of make believe
weaving her stories
of magic and light

She brings joy
to the eyes
of innocent minds
less jaded and free

For only they know
what's in her heart
holding the secrets
she guards so well

Life's hidden mysteries
belong to those
whose wisdom and truth
shine on in imagination

Most of the worlds' great things were born of adversity and hardship; because these roadblocks encourage us to dream, imagine and believe.- Ann Clemmons

Favorite quotes-

Whenever you feel like criticizing any one,” he told me, “just remember that all the people in this world haven’t had the advantages that you’ve had.”'

F. Scott Fitzgerald. (Lines from The Great Gatsby)
"A Southerner Talks Music"

Mark Twain

"A book must be the ax for the frozen sea inside us."

Franz Kafka

An author values a compliment even when it comes from a source of doubtful competency.
