Can you answer?

It's 2020 and  I still have so many unanswered questions!!!!  Maybe you have the answers to some of these mind boggling questions

I haven’t found out who let the dogs out, or
Where’s the beef, or
How to get to Sesame Street, or
Why Dora doesn’t just use Google Maps...
Why do all flavors of fruit loops taste exactly the same, 
 How many licks does it take to get to the center of a tootsie pop.....
.Why eggs are packaged in a flimsy carton, but batteries are secured in plastic that’s tough as nails...
What does the fox say... 
Why “abbreviated” is such a long word; or 
Why is there a D in ‘fridge’ but not in refrigerator.
 Why lemon juice is made with artificial flavor yet dish-washing liquid is made with real lemons... 
Why they sterilize the needle for lethal injections?
why do you have to “put your two cents in” but it’s only a “penny for your thoughts” where’s that extra penny going to... 
why does The Alphabet Song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star have the same tune...
 why did you just try to sing those two previous songs... and 
just what exactly is Victoria’s secret? and 
where is Waldo?... 
Can you hear me now?.

I'm not really this witty.  I copied this from a friend, who stole it from her brother’s girlfriend’s uncle’s cousin who lived next door to an old classmate’s mailman.

Now it is your turn if you want to take it from me
or better yet answer some of these questions.

See you later for more Aimless Ramblings.

A new year and new decade is upon us.  Hard to believe twenty years have gone by since Y2K. This is a bittersweet day as we give way to old memories and make way for the new.  Wishing all of you the best the new year and new decade has to offer - may it be a year and decade filled with health, happiness and prosperity.

I'm using the Christmas meme making the rounds of blogland.  Thank you ladies for sharing.

Wrapping or gift bags?  For me it's gift bags unless there is no way to use them.

Real tree or artificial? We always have an artificial one these days. I miss the smell of a real tree though. 

When do you put up the tree?  Usually Thanksgiving weekend.

When do you take the tree down? Usually the day after New Year's - sometimes even New Years Day.  Growing up though I remember my mom never wanted to take the tree down on January 6th (Little Christmas, she used to call it)

Do you like eggnog? I love eggnog. Not exactly on my low carb diet, but a little at Christmas won’t hurt… I hope.  Hell, it's Christmas and carbs don't count.  

Favorite gift received as a child? 
I remember two, a Toni doll and a transistor radio.  (is there anybody out there that even knows what those things are?)

Hardest person to buy for? My son-in-law followed closely by my older grandson and my husband.

Easiest person to buy for?  No one.

Do you have a nativity scene?  Yes

Mail or email Christmas cards? 
I send out very few, but I use snail mail for them.

Worst Christmas gift ever received?  I guess I'm lucky I can't remember any worst gift.

Favorite Christmas movie? I love "The Gathering".

When do you start shopping for Christmas? Early. I HATE crowds and I’m not shopping once the hordes begin.

Have you ever recycled a Christmas present to a local charity?  Yes,I just did that.  I had several board games that had never been opened and I donated them to the Firemen's Christmas Toy Drive. 

Favorite thing to eat at Christmas?  Christmas cookies and trifle.

Lights on the tree; colored or white?  For years it was only white but our new tree gives us a choice so we have them rotating between white and color.  I think I know love the color best.

Favorite Christmas song?  Oh, Holy Night

Travel at Christmas or stay home?  Home. Just like with shopping, I hate the crowds and spending it with family means airports and such.

Can you name all of Santa's reindeer?  Dasher, Dancer, Comet, Prancer, Vixen - Rudolph, of course. Guess not

Angel on the tree top or a star? Neither

Open the presents Christmas Eve or morning? Always Christmas Eve for our presents. Santa's presents on Christmas morning.

Favorite ornament theme or color? I love the randomness of our tree. No theme, no rhyme or reason. 

Favorite for Christmas dinner?  Prime Rib, Yorkshire pudding, roasted potatoes, asparagus, and trifle for dessert.

What do you want for Christmas this year?  Health and happiness for my family and friends.

Who is most likely to respond to this? No longer have any idea who will stop by.

This was fun and also easy, I copied PK's post and so many of our answers were the same.
