Share Your World – March 27, 2017

Here are Cee’s SYW questions for this week:

Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?

Music or silence while working?

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?

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


Does your first or middle name have any significance (or were you named after another family member)?

My name is Charles Earl after my maternal grandfather and my father (his name was Earl Maxwell but everyone called him Bundy).

Music or silence while working?

Music when cleaning the house.

Silence when working on my novel or blogging.

If you had a special place for your three most special possessions (not including photos, electronics, people or animals), what would they be?

  1. My wedding ring. It symbolizes so much.
  2. My health (still going strong as I approach 70)
  3. My eyesight and vision  (with the assistance of my regular glasses and my sunglasses).  They allow me to see the world on my many travels.

The Never List: What are things you know you never will do?

  1. Smoke cigarettes – I was cured of this by my mother catching me smoking with my best friend and making me smoke a whole pack of unfiltered Camel cigarettes one after another. I was green and sick for a few days, but the cure was effective.
  2. Go into space. This was my dream as a boy. My eyes failed me in the fourth grade, which meant I would never fly jets (the first step into space). I studied Astrophysics instead so that I could study space. At my age, it is much too late to take up the challenge.
  3. Shoot a round of golf below par. My current handicap is +20 (down from +28 two years ago). I am steadily improving, but below par is beyond reach at this point. I am hoping to level off at a +15 handicap.
  4. Have a waist size of 32 inches (like when I graduated from high school).

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

After two years of life getting in the way of goals, I have gotten back to writing my second book in my science fiction trilogy (Nu Book 2 – The Esss Retreat). This applies to both last week and the week ahead.

    1. Both my mother and my father were two pack a day Camel smokers. Every February, i developed bronchitis and missed two weeks of school. After the fact, it is easy to see why I got sick. We were all enclosed in small house in the middle of an upstate NY winter. My second hand smoke consumption must have been very high.
