TV Watching 201 — Six Word Saturday —

My Six Words:
Now What Was Your Question (Bad)?
Perhaps you know the question.  The other big question is, "who was asked, MEN or WOMEN" (six words there too!).  In the picture are the six top ANSWERS when 100 people were asked. 
Why Bad?  I'm asking this a lot of late.  My daily TV watching includes watching
F a m i l y  F u e d re-runs at 12:30 while I eat lunch.  This is right after the 12:00 local CBS station's news that I watch while I am preparing lunch.  Or blogging if Mrs. Jim is making lunch.  Chances are it's me making the lunch, as seen here on my blog, I make a good lunch.
But honest to goodness, I don't know what in the world the question was for these six answers.  They are the top eight answers to the question when asked to either 100 men or 100 women.  I can't remember that either, of course. 
I really do not know. 
But if I knew the question I might be hapy to knows these answers.

Highlight this area to see the answer:
(from here) The question was,
"What will you do in Heaven?"
I don't remember if it was asked to 100 men or to 100 women.

My Alphabe-Thursday -- "F" -- Things in a Row -- Two Questions --

Click on any picture to see it larger.  Your 'Back' button will get you back to here.
"F" is for Fruit:  I took these pictures at my local Kroger Grocery Store in Willis, Texas.  They are also very fitting for my Thursday Things in a Row post.  Texas merchants are proud to be able to sell merchandise which has originated in Texas.  Hence the sign.
"F" is for Flathead Ford:  This restored 1934 Ford V8 Tudor belongs to one of our car club members.  Our Montgomery Country (Texas) Early Ford V8 Club met on June 2, 2012, at one of our member's home.  We ate, kicked tires, toured the members Texas ranch home, and had a club meeting (link).
The pictures below are of the Flathead V8 engine of three cars.  Please notice for Thursday Things in a Row posting Ford positioned the spark plugs all in a row.   The first engine on the left is from the 1934 Ford pictured above.  The second is of a members 1936 Ford, while the one on the right is in a 1952 Ford V8 Pickup.
Ford manufactured the Ford Flathead engines for his cars from 1932 through 1953.  In 1954 the Ford V8's were the newer modern Overhead Valve V8 engines.

You can check out more Alphabe-Thursday 'F' assignments with Miss Jenny at the head of the class. You can find her here. You might even like to join us as we go through the alphabet, one letter per week.

And now for my Thursday Two Questions: (See Thursday Two Questions by Self Sagacity for more reading. You could also make your own by checking in at this link.)

Last week 's post was about gourmet and public transportation. The responses were very interesting.
My Two Questions for this week:

1. What are your produce buying methods?
First we check the weekly specials at Krogers, H.E.B, and Brookshire Brothers.  We also try to buy items in season.  Then for the rest we 'splurge' on what seems to be good at the moment we are shopping.  The local Kroger store is our favorite place to shop.  Sometimes we end up at Sams when we cook for a crowd.
2. What is your favorite fruit?  How often do you get to eat it?
Bananas for ice cream and apples to eat with cheese or make apple pie are about equally my favorites.  I like most fruits after these, probably starting with oranges and then grapes.  (I hardly ever buy grapes if they are over 99¢ a pound which would be a sale price.)

Bonus Question:  Did you fly your American flag for Flag Day on June 14?
Yes, Mrs. Jim and I did fly it on our pole in the ground out in the front yard flower bed.
The picture here is an old July 4, 2006, one on Adi's Meme.  I took a picture this year for flag day but wanted to get Adi back on the blog.  She six years older now than in this picture but still gets around good.  Good that is, with her arthritis pills and shots.

Summer is ... — Thematic Photographic

Summer is morning fog on the golf course that's behind our house.  It'll soon be hot. 
I am golfing tomorrow, it is supposed to be 101°F high temp by afternoon.
Summer is having take-out breakfast from MacDonalds.
My favorite is Egg Biscuit with cheese.  I take the bottom biscuit off.
I eat the egg and cheese top part with ketchup.  Then with coffee I have
the bottom part with strawberry jam.
Summer is dogs sleeping most of the day in the shade someplace.
This is Adi, our beagle dogShe has never slept outside in her life.
Summer is concerts in the park.  Back in my near-hippy days, early 70's,
there would be a musical group under nearly every tree in the Houston parks.
I'd ride my motorcycle litterally from tree to tree and find a shady place to listen.
I remember then ZZ Top was playing out there, getting a start with the others.
Summer is weddings so blissful.  This picture was of my oldest (of four)
granddaughter, Megan and her getting-to-be new husband, James.
Summer is vacations in the cool lands.  Colorado and its Garden of the Gods
will be nice in most years.  It was last year.  But this year the woods are on fire
there and the scenery may not be so green.  There are forest fires now around the
Colorado Springs area.  So far this year Texas has been spared.  Not so last year.

He tied his feet to the cord and plugged it in.

He hoped to light up like a Christmas tree, incandescent like.

But instead, he fried.
