Friendly Fill-Ins: Week 3

Annie at McGuffy's Reader and Ellen at 15andmeowing are co-hosting a fun weekly meme called  Friendly Fill-In'sAll you have to do to participate is complete the statements and link your post up hereThis is a great way to get to know each other a little better!
Here are the this week's statements with the blanks:

1. Whatever happened to ___________________________?

2. I always ____________________________ on Memorial Day.

3. I used to wish                         , but                       .

4. I just cannot                        , no matter                         .
Here are my answers:

1. Whatever happened to teaching children manners and how to behave in public?

2. I always remember the families who lost a loved one in service to our country  on Memorial Day.  There would be great pride, but it would also be heart-breaking.

3. I used to wish that one day I would be free of the prison I created in my life, but I no longer have to dream of that day - I've been free and content with my life for 9-1/2 years now.  That still amazes me!

4. I just cannot abide people who don't own their behavior, no matter how hard they try to convince me that the fault lies with someone/something else.

Go With the Halo

~Image Source~

I have often said that I manifest both the sacred and the profane in my writing and in my life.  Fairly often I find myself yielding to minor temptations or bad behavior.  One night recently when I was pestering Papa Bear as he tried to fall asleep, he asked me why, and the only valid response I could provide was "The devil made me do it!"  Papa Bear then cited the classic illustration of having an angel on one shoulder and a devil on the other.  "Go with the halo", he said, "not the horns".  I try, most of the time I really do, but as to whether I am more drawn to the halo or the horns, I think it's pretty much a draw. :-)

Following Her Home

~Image Credit~
While out on the town for a good time
She met a man who didn't have a dime
But he had a killer smile, designed to beguile...
Would you like to come back to my place for awhile?
