Share Your World – 2016 Week 28

The Share Your World (SYW) Challenge is a fun opportunity to connect with your followers and to give them some insight into who you are, what you enjoy, and often times to learn a bit of history about you. The format is simple. You answer a set of questions that change each week and then link your post back to Cee’s SYW post so everyone can enjoy.

Before we get to the questions, the featured image today is a small part of our family taken on our front porch. This is really my world. Here is the picture again:

Here are today’s questions:

What is your earliest memory?

What was the last photo you took with your phone?

Have you ever danced in the rain?

What is the longest you have gone without sleep?

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up? 

So here we go:

What is your earliest memory? My earliest coherent memory is from my kindergarten class. We had one student that was quite different from all of the rest. He probably had ADHD, but back in those days (mid 1950’s) there was no such designation. Anyway, I can remember this boy getting up at nap time and sneaking all around the room, trying to find hiding places where the teacher couldn’t find him.

What was the last photo you took with your phone? I took some photos at our neighborhood 4th of July party at the community pool.

Here, the sun finally peeked out from under the cloud cover:

To really prove the sun was out, I took a photo of one of my neighbors to show the sunlight with accompanying shadows:

This last picture is of four young girls who had just visited the ice cream truck:

Have you ever danced in the rain? Here is a different twist on dancing in the rain. Dancing on a cruise ship that is being tossed about by a rainstorm outside. You should try that sometime. When the ship leans in a direction you are not expecting, it can really throw off your dance steps. Now imagine the show dancers on the stage. How do they do it?

What is the longest you have gone without sleep? Back in 1978 I was working in Hartford, Connecticut on the installation of a new Medicare system for three states that were going live on the same day. For any of you that are familiar with large mainframe computer software installations, you can guess how many problems might arise. Our crew was up and working for three straight days and nights.

Bonus question:  What are you grateful for from last week, and what are you looking forward to in the week coming up?  I am grateful for the wonderful staff at our local hospital (Cone Memorial). I missed four days of blogging (during my free book promo BTW) where that wonderful staff took great care of a family member. I am looking forward to getting back into our normal routines at home.

      1. That is true. I already know you are a sweet Success Inspirer. If you become an author on Success Inspirers’ World. and whenever you find time publish something inspiring there, will that not be great?

    1. I started on an IBM 365 computer at New York University in the summer of 1966 (between my junior and senior year in High School). I became a master of programming and system design after my training with Electronic Data Systems under Ross Perot (who also ran for President). I was very comfortable on mainframes.
