Shock or AWE

Memorable Automobiles from The Past:

 Shocking car wreck!

A strange looking little Peel 3 wheel car.

For today:

A lot of us humans have strong opinions or oddities. I am not too sure it would shock my family if I told them I was going to try to swim the English Channel. BUT they would be shocked if I were to attend a concert or music festival.

Being back in NC we had a wonderful visit from the Grands and some Great grands. They had a good time, and we did too! I spoke with Grandson Matt about my plans for hiking the AT.

Now if my sweetheart Sherry would say, “I sure would like a beer, or I am not attending church anymore!,  I would be Shocked out of my Gourd!” (That saying was frequent from my sister Shirl).

Is there anything that would shock the socks off your family if you announced, “I think I will __________________!”

(Fill in the blank!)

I can see you Jack attempting to swim the English Channel :) Yep, that would certainly surprise me if Sherry was saying yes to a beer and no to church. Mine would be "I'm going to fly to Australia" because everyone in my family knows I abhor flying 2 hours yet alone the 24 hours to fly down there!

I think I will paint the garden fence and gate.

God bless.

It would shock my family if I started swearing and cussing. Bad words have never been part of my vocabulary and they know that, so it was shock them to no end. The most shocking thing in my life was to have a large family there were many that frowned at that but I've loved every moment of it myself. Shocking can also be awesome depending on the view.

If I would start to smoke that would shock everyone! I hate even the smell of cigarettes so no worries there! If I drank alcohol or coffee they would also think aliens abducted me! But if I said I was going on a ghost hunt they would just say, "What? Again? Have fun!"

Great question! I can think of several things ... but what I'd give to see the expression on Tom's face if I said I wanted to go sky-diving. (2nd place: If I were to ask him for a glass of orange juice.)

I am going to run away. Ha! The cats and dogs would die of hunger and thirst. My hubby would be sad and lonely and Nick and Rebekah and Zach would wonder when I was coming back.

Jack, you sure have lofty goals. I am not a good swimmer so....

this was a fun post. Thanks for sharing and you both have a wonderful time no matter where you go or what you are up to.
