~~ Friday’s Hunt v.3.13-- "M" is for ...

Friday's Hunt for the week of March 31st: Starts with M; Week's Favorite; and Water

You can count the keys on this LARGE PRINT typewriter pictured below.
Please also note that it is a manual and not electric.

"Typewriter" posts, 

1.  Starts with M:  "M" is for Make Up
Here it is "Make up your mind", is it Double or Single Space after a period?  

To help matters, I learned in my Typing Class to always do two spaces after a period, also do the double space after a colon.  Now-a-days most published material has only one space after periods.
For me I still double space, I think it helps the reader to separate the sentences.

These two links may help you make a decision:
a.  Google it:

b.  Huffington Post article:  (a scientific survey study)

c.  More uses of "Make Up" besides 'make up' your mind
 - Wearing makeup, I put too much "makeup" this morning;
 - Catching up by taking a "Make up" exam in school work or a rained out sports game;
 - Constitute, Women and people of color "make up" the majority of the Trump coalition
 - Fill in, complete, Donald Trump's Tax Plan—The Rich Pay Less, and You "Make Up" the ... 
 - Patch up a damaged relationship, after a night on the town and dining at a nice restaurant, the couple seemed to "make up" their differences;
And I am sure there are others you might think of.  For me, these are the majority of uses of "Make UP".

2.  Week's Favorite: Eating, if not leftovers then it's hot dogs made me.

Pie from "Pi Day".  Mrs. Jim made Apple pie for me.  I told you I would get some (Link to Pi Day Posts)

I am the Hot Dog maker of the house.  This is just a plain dog on bun with relish, mustard, and cheese.  (Link to hot dog posts)

Left over spaghetti from eating out.  I had eaten the Frutti di Mare before getting the rest put into my doggy bag.  Then, as usual I add a dozen plus shrimp from our freezer.  Really good "Fruit of the Sea" leftover dish. 


3.  Water: You might like this, from an older 2012 post about "Water",
Stealing from the kids

These are balls rescued from the golf course, many came from the water, possible the water being held in the sand trap where Sam (not his real name) is raking for balls.  He found several but not his own.

The children's sign on the tree says:

$1.00 Yellow
...50¢ Blue
...25¢ Green

Share Your World -- March 27 Week

Here are Cee’s questions for this week. I hope you’ll share your answers, too.

Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?
YES, both first and middle. 
My Dad's middle name is Vernon, that is also my middle name.  He did answer to Vernon and used C. Vernon for all his documents and signatures.
But no one called him either Charles, his real first name, or a suitable nickname.  They mostly called him Jim.  Then when I was born they named me James Vernon
But they couldn't call me Jim as that was Dad's popular name.  So I was either  Jimmy or Little Jim.  Dad was never Big Jim.  And I was never a Vernon. My three uncles called me Jimmy all their lives and several of my friends still call me Jimmy.  I'd rather be Jim which I am to most people.  Hardly ever except for official things am I James. (Sorry this got drawn out and long.)

Music or silence while working?
Classic Rock.  That would be a bit of the later 60's, the 70's and maybe a bit of early 80's  I'd rather have TV, it is turned on most all of the time now that I don't work.  I don't pay much attention to a lot of it though.

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?
By my bed.
In my study/office.
In the garage.

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?
 - I will never forgive certain persons even though I can be 'friendly' with him or her.  They may have forgotten but I cannot forgive because of scars I have.
 - I will NEVER eat egg plant.  Probably that is because of a high school joke.
 - I will NEVER get to the South Pole.  I have always wanted to do that.  The closest I've been is around Cape Horn and have visited the Falkland Islands.
 - I will NEVER get to Antarctica or the North Pole although I've been into the Artic Circle.
 - I will NEVER kick or mistreat a pet or any farm animal, no animal for that matter.

Optional Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 
I'm grateful for my Sunday School class.  Without it our church with thousands of members (Second Baptist Church Houston) would not provide the fellowship with other members.  Our class has 137 members, most of them fairly regularly attend.  Our attendance averages in the 90's on Sunday mornings.
 - LAST WEEK, Friday night, our Shepherd Group met at a Mexican Restaurant near the church, ten minutes from our place.  We have 20 in the group, 14 came for dinner.
The picture is of our teacher, Dr. Charles
 and his wife.  Our class is aged 60 and up.

 I had Chile Reno dinner, besides the pepper filled with

hamburger my plate had rice, guacamole salad, charo beans,

a chicken enchilada, and all the corn chips I could eat. 
I took a doggy plate home for Sunday lunch, about half of this.  
-  In the WEEK COMING UP, we are looking forward to our seven-year-old granddaughter, KP, to have a soccer game.  She plays mostly at Left Guard.  That was on Saturday, on Friday night the men of our Sunday school class will have a supper and meeting at the Church.  The ladies will meet Saturday morning.
 - EVERY WEEK Mrs. Jim and I put together and mail out a newsletter to our Sunday school class meeting.  This week I also will make an April Calendar showing the month's activities for the class.
