Share Your World

Di, at Pensitivity101, is once again filling in for Melanie, at Sparks From a Combustible Mind, for this week’s Share Your World prompt. Thanks, Di.

1. Do you prefer to live in a single story property like a bungalow, a high rise apartment, or a house?

Ours is a single story house commonly referred to where we live as a ranch-style home. I like it because there are no stairs to have to walk up and down every day. And being septuagenarians, not having to deal with steps is good!

2. If you won a large amount of money on the lottery, would you want publicity or keep things quiet and low key?

I’d definitely keep it on the down low. Only my immediate family would be in the loop.

3. How do you like your eggs? (No, this is not a trick question.)

  • Over easy
  • Scrambled with mushrooms, sautéed onions, diced tomato, and cheese melted on top
  • “Hole in the wall” eggs (essentially over easy, but with the eggs dropped into a small hole in the centers of slices of bread)

4. If cars were no longer available, what would be your choice of transport?

E-bike.

    We call that kind of egg – egg in a nest. I’ve heard a hole in one…My mother used to make them for me when I was young but I don’t recall what she called them.

    I like living in a two-story, for now. But I like the feel of the word bungalow and would like to have one on a beach (probably still a two-story); but a hut would be okay.

    Whoever designed the ranch house was a genius! All our previous homes had 2 or 3 levels; the current one is a ranch and even though we may not be able to always hear each other calling from one end of the house to the other, it sure beats climbing stairs!

      I agree. I love a ranch house and I guess ours is not so sprawling that we can’t hear one another from opposite sides. I suppose we could always send a text if necessary, though! 😉

    E-bikes are great in warm climates and for people who can still balance on two wheels. For those of us living in cold climates who can no longer balance, we’d need something closed against the weather and not requiring us to balance.

    Hey world, not everyone CAN ride a bike when they turn 75 or 80. There are a lot of things I used to do which I can’t do now. What do you think elderly people in frigid weather should do? Like when there’s ice and snow on the ground? What about the really elderly — the 90-year-olds? I doubt you’ll see them on a bike in any climate, much less here in winter.

    There is no such thing as a single solution. What about places where there are no paved roads or only cobblestones? Ever tried to ride a bike on cobblestones? I can’t even walk on them. Ankle-breakers!

      My wife and I are both in our 70s and so far, we’re doing well with our e-bikes. But our weather here is probably more kind to cyclists than is yours. Will I still be able to at 80? I hope so, but who knows? And yeah, riding on cobblestones should be avoided, as is riding on sand, as I learned the hard way.

    I never heard of hole in the wall eggs, sounds so good. I think we call it toad in the hole? xo

      It goes by a lot of different names.
