Share Your World July 16, 2018


It is time to SHARE MY WORLD WITH CEE. If you are new to Lillie-Put , Share your world is a weekly challenge I participate in. It is hosted by photo blogger Cee Neuner out of Portland Oregon. Each week Cee asks four questions and people across the blogosphere answer the questions thus “sharing their worlds”.

Cee’s weekly questions and my answers are posted below. When you have finished reading my answers I encourage you to use the underlined link to travel over to Cee’s blog and find other sharing answers.

Since we are approaching the hottest part of our summer in the northern hemisphere, what’s your favorite ice-cream, frozen yogurt or sorbet flavor?  (Those of you who live down under I’m sure you remember what it is like in the hot summer months).

My favorite ice cream flavor is orange pineapple ice cream from Kimball Farms in Jaffrey NH


How often do you people watch?

At least once a week. I love watching people and their response to the world around them.

If you had a choice which would be your preference salt water beaches, fresh water lakes, ocean cruise, hot tub, ski resort or desert?

Salt water beach. I love the Maine Coast in every season.

Sharing our worlds is what blogging is all about. I love that Cee at Cee’s photography gives each of us an opportunity to share our bit of our little corners of this swiftly spinning sphere.


Click that paragraph to go over and share a bit of your life with Cee.

Here are Cee’s sharing questions for the week and my answers:
If you could choose any person from history to be your imaginary friend, who would it be and why?

I would choose Francis Of Assisi to be my imaginary friend because he has such an interesting soul. His legacy is so tough and tender.

60s, 70s, 80s, 90s: Which decade do you love the most and why? 

I think I would have to say the 70’s because the TV was so cheesy and awesome. It was the time when my imagination was forged in fires of innocence.

When you die, what do you want to be remembered for?

My faith, my hope, my love, my wisdom and my patience.

I really enjoyed attending my daughter’s baby shower. That’s right! I am going to be a Grampa. But I will not be called “Grampa”. I shall be “Oz”!

I am a few days late this week but still determined to Share My World. My! My! My! It was a busy one!


You can check out the site of World Sharing Hostess, Cee Neuner by clicking HERE.

Here are the sharing questions for this week and my answers:

A piece of clothing from your younger childhood you still remember?

I had this brown silk shirt with wagon wheels all over it. I thought it was awesome when I was eight. It was the height of 70’s fashion. I think my mother burned all the pictures of me wearing it.

Irregardless of your physical fitness, coordination or agility: If you could be an athlete what would do do?   Remember this is SYW, dreaming is always allowed.

I would be a parkour master


In a car would you rather drive or be a passenger?

I think I would rather drive at this point in my life and that is a definite change.

Here is a quote from one of the books I am reading. That inspired me this week.

“If…we dare to respond as Father God call us out to become His men, if we allow Him to nail our pride and our plans to the cross, we’re eligible at last to receive His Spirit and do our appointed task in restoring His kingdom on earth as it is in Heaven.- From Healing the Masculine Soul

Here I go SHARING MY WORLD again.

Here are the weekly Share Your World questions and my thoughts on them. To see how others answered the same questions click the underlined link.

What household chore do you absolutely enjoy doing? (can be indoor or outdoor)

I really like putting away clean clothes.

Create a sentence with the words “neon green” and train”.

The neon green troll picked up the train and threw it into the ocean. But the Undine came and rescued all the passengers.

(Sorry I know that was two sentences but I couldn’t let all those poor commuters perish because I lacked the word space to save them.)

Other than your cell phone what can you always be found with?

My glasses. I have seven or eight pairs that I keep strategically placed throughout my life space so even if I forget my main pair I can still see. I may look weird but  at least I am not blind.

What’s that you ask? Don’t I know it’s May? Of course I know it’s May! This is just the first chance I have had to answer Cee’s last questions from the month of April. If you want to see who was more timely in answering her questions you can do that by clicking HERE.

Before you go there though please indulge me and have a look at my answers to her questions.

Do you use paper money? If so is your money organized sequentially according to denomination?  

I do still sometimes use paper money. If I do it is stuffed randomly and usually folded messily among the debit card receipts in my wallet.

You are comfortable doing nothing? For long stretches of time?

I seldom get to do nothing, though I suppose that is what prayer looks like from the outside. So while most everyone else would say I do spend long stretches of time doing nothing I would probably say I seldom get to just do nothing. I don’t think I would like “nothing”.

What is your greatest strength?

I think one of my greatest strengths is my patience.

This week my daughter Amanda performed her first baptism as a credentialed minister.
