Summer fun, summer lovin', summer good Hodgepodge!!!!!!

Welcome to the Summertime edition of Wednesday Hodgepodge.  I have been extremely busy this past week and this one but I wanted to make sure I got in on the fun with Joyce over at From This Side of the Pond for another great edition.  So share some blog love and then hope on over to her page and join in.  We have such a great time joining in on her blog.  They are always so fun and you never know what she is going to give us next.

1. What summer activity most takes you back to your own childhood?
---- Wow what a hard one to start with.  Since all of my children are grown, I would have to say picnics at families houses.  We used to get together every year when they were younger and visit family we haven't seen in awhile.

2. What's your favorite summer smell?
---- The Grill...uh hello, I love the smell of hamburgers, hot dogs and ribs on the grill....just thinking bout it is making me hungry.

3. It's beach season in the US of how do you feel about sand?
----  I love the sand.  I could play in it all day long looking for shells.

4. Sun tea, SunChips, sunflower seeds, Capri Sun, Sunny Delight, Sun-Maid raisins, sun-dried tomatoes...your favorite food or beverage with sun in its name?
---- Sunflower seeds with a big ole glass of Sun Tea.

5. What's your favorite way to cool off on a hot summer day?
-----  Sitting in front of the A/C is my #1 way but other then that I would say ice cream for sure and an ice cold Coca Cola even though I am more of a Pepsi girl, nothing beats an Ice Cold Coke.

6. Share a favorite song with the word sun or sunshine in it's title.
----Walking on Sunshine by Katrina and The Waves.  That song always makes me dance no matter where I am or what I am doing.  Ok maybe not dance dance but I sure can't sit still.

7. Tell us about a time you had an exceedingly good or truly awful customer service experience. If it was awful, did you report it? Ever go back there again?
---- Seriously exceedingly good experience......uh no,  truly awful experience...uh no.  I would have to save they are all pretty average.
However, when I was working at a gas station I had a lady throw a 2 liter at me because I charged her 10 cents more then I did her white boyfriend.  I apologized to her and told her that the sign was turned incorrectly and offered her the difference back but she wasn't having any of it.  I finally told her to get out or I was calling the cops.  Just so happens about that time the cops pulled up anyway to get them something to drink as well.  I thought she was going to lose it at that point but she just walked out and didn't come back again while I was on shift.

8.  Insert your own random thought here.
----  Last week was crazy busy because I was covering for a lady on vacation and I had almost 50 hrs in .  This week I am covering for my boss and you know how it goes....if something can go wrong it usually does.  Needless to day it is only Wednesday and all I want is for my mommy to hold me and tell me everything will be OK.  My mom has been gone for 6 yrs now and even though I am in my 40's I am still a mamma's baby.  I was when she died and I was in my 30's then.
---- I am busy with work but I am also busy with trying to get my house in order for my daughter's baby shower Saturday.  This is her first baby and she is so excited.  My husband is going to go get a huge 20' long tent so that we can have it outside and not cram everyone up in our house.  We don't have enough room on the inside if everyone she has invited shows up.  But we will see.  Super super super excited.
