Chats on the Farmhouse Porc 34: #26

Please come on over to join us on Patrice's porch and don't forget to bring a carrot or two for Wendell!

This week's questions:

What's your favorite type of chair?

A comfortable one! Most chairs are made for standard-height people, which I am not. Most chairs are too tall for me to sit in comfortably. They cause my back to hurt and my feet to swing like a toddler in a high chair. Good grief!

What was the last play you saw?

"Almost Maine" was the last play that I saw. It was a production at the local junior college.

If you could spend an all expenses paid week in a cabin in the mountains, a cottage at the beach, or a townhouse in a city with lots of great attractions, which would you choose?

I would choose the mountain cabin. While I am scared to drive or be driven on a mountain, the scenery is beautiful and I'm OK up there once I get out of the vehicle.

What's your favorite condiment?

This is a hard one. I like mayonnaise, but not to the degree that my husband does. I like mustard, too, but not as much as whoever makes the hamburgers at the local burger joint. I think they must use a whole jar per burger. :)

What's your favorite breed of dog?

I like mutts. Our first dog, which we named Gus, was a mutt. Our last dog was Shep and she was a German Shepherd/Chow mix and was the sweetest girl. She lived to be about eighteen years old. She was gentle unless you were messing with one of her babies; then, she'd chew your face off. Gus was the same way.

    1. I agree. They generally have a good temper and, in our experience, very protective. Once, my mother-in-law's current husband was making one of the kids squeal and Shep went after him. She didn't hurt him, just nipped at him, but she was fully prepared to rip him to pieces because she thought he was hurting the kid.

      Thanks so much for stopping by and commenting. I hope that you have a great week!

  2. I have always had mutts. Dogs no one wanted. We had a chow/mix of some kind and she was the best dog ever. The border collie and my Sheltie were the first puppies I got and I have enjoyed them.
    I thought I was the only one who was short and had trouble finding chairs to fit so my feet touch the ground. :)
    Very nice answers this week,

    1. Thanks. :)

      The full Chows that I've known have been rather scary dogs, but when they are mixed with another breed, they aren't so scary. They are protective and sweet at the same time. I'm glad that you've enjoyed your puppies. I think that collies are really pretty dogs.

      I'm glad that I'm not the only one in the feet swinging group. Maybe we should all band together and make the chair companies design an "us-sized" chair.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!

  3. When I was very young we had a Collie/Husky mix. That's what we were told but I think he would qualify as a mutt. He was the nicest dog!

    1. I'll bet! Huskies are great dogs and powerful, too. Our Shepherd/Chow mix dog had her first litter of puppies with a Siberian Husky. That dog jumped a six foot fence to get to Shep. Nothing stands in the way of love. haha Their puppies were sweet and huge...and just as persistent as their daddy.

      Do you have a picture of the puppy from your childhood? I bet it was beautiful. :)

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!

  4. I'm so tall, that I wouldn't know what it was like to have your chair problems. I recently went to the library and sat in the childrens' section with my daughter. I thought they'd have to get me surgically removed from one of the little chairs.

    I wonder what gave you the fear of driven/being driven up a mountain. I'm glad you can still enjoy yourself when there. :)

    1. I can't imagine that problem. I love those little chairs. They are just perfect for me. haha

      I think that my daddy, and later my father-in-law, had a great deal to do with my fear of being in a vehicle on a mountain. They would see an interesting overlook and drive toward it at what felt like a zillion miles an hour to me, getting way close to the edge. I was sure the brakes would fail or something would happen and we'd be going over the edge of the mountain.

      My husband and I were in the mountains on our honeymoon. He's diabetic and we'd stopped to get him some milk. I was shaking so badly that it was milkshake by the time I handed it to him.

      Thanks for stopping by and commenting. Have a great week!
