Doing Toni's Meme and One of My Own

Just a note... I am not able to comment on some blogs that are using Google plus comments. No matter what I do it won't take my comments! Among those are Lois' blog. But I am visiting and reading.
I've been under the weather this week but will be around to visit tomorrow evening.

Here is Toni's meme and mine follows:
#07 Vacation Preferences

1. Traveling by Air, Sea or Land?
I prefer traveling by car or train.
 I get sick on airplanes, especially small ones!
 I used to fly with student pilots (cheap easy way home from school) and had cornered the market on airsick bags.  The students had to stall the planes in flight and then recover..that didn't bother me as much as the up and down movement of a small plane. 

2. Hotel, Camp Grounds or Summer Cottage?
5 star hotel please. They get those stars for a reason!!
I have camped quite a bit but now I prefer comfort. 

3. Sightseeing, Weather Related Sports or Relaxing?
Sightseeing is nice. Relaxing is also nice.
 My days of ice skating and horseback riding are over.

4. Favorite vacation season?
I love the fall for trips.
Chilly, crisp air in the mountains is wonderful.  I also like the cooler days at the beach in September and early October.

Here is another meme if you want to join in.
Again, if you do, do it on your own blog, mention it here in comments so others can visit your blog!

 Summer Memories

Summer is the official time for the beach. It belongs to us I think like autumn belongs to New
Our bay
Our population more than doubles for the summer as people return from their Florida homes to NJ and north Jerseyites  (known as Bennys) and out of staters come for vacations.
Our beaches are simply some of the nicest anywhere.

 1. What thoughts come to your mind when you think of 'summer'?
Heat, humidity, beach, blue skies, balmy breezes, birds and sunshine.

2. If you could 'fix up' summer, make it perfect, what would you do?
I would do away with the extreme humidity and temperatures. I would do away with biting bugs  which ruin summer for me.

3. Which do you prefer---picnic or cookout?
cook out but, sometimes you can cook on a picnic too!

4.Do you have a special summer memory ?
  Coming home late at night from the beach with a boy I liked and wishing I didn't have to go home at all. The summer night breeze, the moonlight, the sound of the surf all linger in my mind from that day. It was a great day.
I really, truly liked that boy....sigh.
Also memories of being with my Daddy in Wildwood.

 5. How about a special summertime song?
I have a list of them!
Theme from a Summerplace.
Summer Breeze by Seals and Crofts.
All Summer Long by the Beach Boys is a particular favorite
 Surf City by  Jan and Dean  (yes there is a Surf City in New Jersey as well as in California and yes, the surfing there is good!)    
Got a list of your own?

Have a glorious weekend.


  1. I love the Beach Boys, they have great summer songs. I loved your meme answers and I have mine posted also. Have a nice weekend.

  2. Annie, I'm so sorry that you've been feeling under the weather. I hope this weekend gives you a time to do nothing but pamper yourself & get back 100%. A new meme! I can't wait to join in! I'll get mine done this weekend. I love the idea of a weekend meme. Loved your answers. Have a wonderful weekend. Stay well. Hugs

  3. Annie, I have the same problem occasionally commenting on some blogs but I go back later and it works. I hope you feel better soon. So sorry you feel sick. I enjoyed your meme answers. I do your meme later today. Hugs

  4. HI Annie; Enjoyed reading both memes and will do yours tomorrow. I agree with all of them, especially the heat and humidity. Most of the reason why summer isn't my favorite season. I'm so sorry you aren't feeling well my friend. I pray you feel better soon. I will post your meme for tomorrow. Have a blessed and better day my friend. Hugs

  5. I hope you feel better soon, Annie! I have been traveling a bit lately so your answers were interesting to read. I don't mind flying but I always say a prayer before we take off and when we land. I also dislike extreme heat and humidity --for that reason I am really enjoying living in Colorado!

  6. Hi Annie! I wanted to let you know that I did your weekend meme today. Such fun! Thank you so much for doing this! Hugs

  7. Hi Annie! I'm so sorry to read that you're not feeling well. :( I hope you're better soon! Loved your meme answers. I will do your memes tomorrow. Lots of get well hugs!


  8. For some days have have been passing since you've written this post let me hope that in the meantime you've had the chance for getting better, that you now are feeling good and that your summer is flowing serene !

    With you I dislike heat and humidity, though I like the sunshine and the seaside to which are linked most of my memories, for as Ligurian I've lived most of my time at the beach, especially during summer nights !
    Thank you my dear Annie for having called back to my mind such beautiful days !

    Have a wonderful day, sweety <3
