The Forgetful Meme

It has been a very long time since I have completed and posted a meme.

This meme comes from The Queen's Meme
It is called called The Forgetful Meme

1. What is the last thing you forgot to do?
~ Take my dinner-time meds

2. What is the one thing you are always afraid you will forget to do?
~ Breath

3. Can you remember when you were 3 years old?
~ Yes.
If so, tell us a cute story. If not, make one up.
~ I’m not sure how cute this, but here goes. I loved cowboy stuff. My favorite program was a local kids TV show, T-Bar-V Ranch. I would go on TV in my cowboy outfit and be allowed to “draw my guns. I had a lot of toy guns. My grandfather, Terrible Nick Temple (TNT), was a Louisville policeman. He had given my father one of his service revolvers and Dad kept it in a high drawer in my parents’ bedroom. I evidently climbed up on a chair, opened the drawer, found, and removed the pistol. I then walked into the bathroom where my mother was sitting on the toilet, pointed the revolver at her and asked, “Who bringed me this gun?”  I don’t know why she was sitting on the toilet, but I am certain that after I came through the door with that (loaded) pistol, she shit.

4. Fill in the blank. I would like to forget my dad’s death but I will always remember the life of  this person.

5. Fill in the blank. I will never forget the first time I flew an airplane.

6. Who, in your opinion, is the world's forgotten hero?
~ Dietrich Bonhoeffer

7. Find a word that rhymes with forget and use it to write a funny sentence.
~ I believe that Alex would like to forget 
each of his visits to the vet.

  1. Thanks for putting the Christmas Celebration button on your site. It's very much appreciated.

    Have a terrific day. :)

  2. That's a very interesting meme with interesting responses, Nick. Love to you and Alex from Sicily. xx

  3. Nick, that story about you and the pistol must have been scarey for your mom.

    I hope that was the last time you did any thing like that.

    Merry Christmas to you and Alex. I enjoyed your answers.

    Hope that you are all unpacked and settled in.

  4. This was a fun read. Your poor mom... ;-)

  5. Welshcakes: Thank you, Pat. Love to you and Simi from Alex and me in the Bluegrass Commonwealth of Kentucky.

  6. Pam: Yes, I’m certain Mom was frightened. In pay back, she has been doing stuff to unset me for almost 65 years.

    We’re settled but not entirely unpacked.

    Alex joins me in wishing you a Merry Christmas and most happy New Year.

  7. Carol: Thank you. It was fun to write. My mother is a scaredy ca; she is even afraid of cats.
