Rambling about Sunday’s questions on Wednesday.
If people get a purple heart for being wounded in war, what do the other colors of hearts mean? (Make up your own heart meanings and colors.)
As far as I know the Purple Heart is only an American award. I learned about it watching old episodes of M*A*S*H. I’m not sure what you would give hearts for in other circumstances. Maybe a gold one for reaching your 50th wedding anniversary. 50 years with the same person is quite an achievement.
If you were given $5 Million to open a small museum, what kind of museum would you create?
It should come as no surprise to anyone that I would open a toy museum. Our home practically is one as it is full of dolls, bears, vintage games, kids’ tricycles, prams, clockwork toys and every other kind of toy we ever played with or wanted to play with.
if you could build a themed hotel, what would the theme be and what would it look like?
I always wanted to visit the great hotels once owned by railway companies, there were several in England and Scotland and I’m sure there were in the USA as well. I would enjoy the retro style of furnishings and railway themed rooms.
What would the adult version of an ice cream truck sell, look like, and play for its song?
As far as I am concerned there is nothing wrong with ice cream vans just as they are. Give me a soft serve and a mechanical version of “Greensleeves” any day.
What animal would be the cutest if it was down-sized to the size of a cat?
A mini panda, or maybe a mini hippo. That would make me laugh. Baby elephants are very cute so a mini baby elephant would be even more cute.
I actually just read, while looking for a picture of a hippo, that there is a designer dog sometimes known as a mini hippo. It’s a cross between a Cocker Spaniel and a Sharpei. I do want to say that although these mini animals would be cute and I get that this is a fun question I really don’t like the practice of breeding designer animals just for their looks. It made sense to breed a dog like the Labradoodle as a non-shedding Assistance Dog but many of these other breeds are very impractical.
