Blogger Birdie said...
When I first read this I was thinking how our greatest strengths can be our greatest weakness. I have empathy and compassion but sometimes it goes too far. I take care of people who can take care of themselves and I end up feeling exhausted and resentful. It's all about balance.

Blogger Elephant's Child said...
I think I am with Birdie here. Empathy and compassion. Strengths and without moderation (self protection) painful weaknesses. I wouldn't give them up though.

My greatest strength is loyalty to friends and family. My greatest weakness is not liking to be around people for long periods of time.

My greatest strength seems to be an ability to get on with almost everyone, it worked well for me as a checkout assistant, I never had a bad customer. My greatest weakness? well, there's two: I'm selfish and greedy. I want it all and I want it now (*~*)

Blogger Winifred said...
I think I am quite a tolerant & forgiving person. Life's too short to hold grudges.

Crumbs I have so many weaknesses it's hard to pick. I think I find it hard to forgive myself for things I did & those I should have done.

My son keeps me supplied in these funnies.

This was Carolyn McBride's last week to provide our Words For Wednesday.  She definitely is going out with a bang.  Such interesting words...many I had to look up.  December words will be provided by Vest of The Daily Gaggle.

Words for today are:
merkin, kibbe, truck, supernatural, sozzled, chubasco, whiskey, sunshine

Here goes my last WFW  for Novermber, 2016

CINDER-FELLA by Granny Annie

Crashing the party she did attend
Dressed as a man to fool the eyes.
But to pass herself as distinguished
She needed more for her disguise.

Not a hat or a walking stick...
A goatee would suit the style
She searched and searched
Until her merkin brought a smile.

Approaching the bar tapping her glass
“Serve the whiskey, pour it now.
There is a goal. for this evening..
To leave sozzled is my vow.”

They were like supernatural gusts
That scattered the guests in the wind.
Party decorations blown away,
When would this sudden chubasco end?

The food had just been served
The kibbe fried and crisp.
No one had expected
The hurricane's wild twist.

Her carriage was a pickup truck
She ran hoping safely to flee.
The storm continued until
Away went the goatee.

She escaped like Cinderella
Missing more than just her shoe.
Would the sunshine of a new day
Help her recover the fuzzy clue?

So many places/times/people/events.
I would like to have seen (from a safe distance) Jack the Ripper. And to be able to travel in time and stop him from completing his killing sprees.

Blogger cube said...
If you posit that I can go back in time, then it stands to reason that I can go forward in time, as well. I'd like to be there when we land on Mars. It's been a dream of mine since childhood.

Blogger Arkansas Patti said...
I would have liked to have been one step behind Neil Armstrong in 1969 instead of watching from my couch.

I think I would've loved to have gone to Woodstock. I was too wussy to do it back then.
12:45 AM
 Blogger Alan Ginocchio said...
I would have like to have witnessed the Mesozoic Era, especially the Jurassic Period, and then finished it off by witnessing how those magnificent animals actually met their demise...
7:28 AM

Blogger Kay said...
This is fun to see what everybody else wrote. I don't know what I would have liked to see. It would have been neat to see Leonardo da Vinci carving the Pieta though. Right now, I wish we could have been in the stands watching the Cubs win the World Series. Sigh...
12:49 AM
Blogger G. B. Miller said...
Whoops, got the name wrong. Had to Google it myself. I would have love to be with Judge Joseph Crater on his last day on earth.

Blogger Granny Annie said...
G.B., I did google Judge Joseph Crater and found the amazing story of his disappearance. How has he been missed right up there with Hoffa and D.B.Cooper. Thanks for the reference:-)

Thank you all for your wonderful ideas. We've got a "lovely bunch of coconuts" among this group of bloggers:-) It makes the QofTW worth posting to read your great responses.

I would have liked to have gotten to break bread with Jesus.
2:21 PM
Blogger Tabor said...
Well, I might have liked to have met and spent an evening talking with Jesus, Budhha and Mohammed...maybe as close in time as I could. I would have liked to have been at my parents wedding. Any future space aliens we meet would be cool.
