TJ MAXX – I have no idea what the “TJ” in TJ Maxx stands for.  Do know of someone who goes by his/her initials, instead of his/her full name?  What is their full name?  Why do they prefer initials?  Tell us a little bit about this person. I have a cousin who goes by D.J. instead of his given name. For the longest time I thought that was just his name (he is older than me-DJ are his first and middle initial).  I think he goes by DJ because he has the same name as his father so it was just a good way to tell them apart when calling for them or whatever.  I really don’t know much about DJ because he is older than me and during most of my childhood lived in Alabama so I never really got to see much of him.

TARGET – Tell us a story about target practice, hunting, or some sort of “shooting” activity. I love shooting at targets. I have never gone hunting though because in my house that is more of a “guys only” activity which frankly is fine with me.  I remember the time my dad and brother took me to the shooting range the first time and let me target practice with my grandpa’s .22. I found out that I am a pretty good shot- at least with the .22.  It’s actually pretty fun and relaxing. Next time I go I want to shoot something different though.

DOLLAR TREE – What’s the best bargain going nowadays?  Is there anything you buy that is really only $1.00 (or less)? Hmmm-well I sometimes shop in the dollar section of TARGET when I am looking for little gifts for an occasion and sometimes I find some cool stuff there.  Other than that- I have not found anything that I buy that is a dollar or less…at least not something I buy on a regular basis. I do like a good deal though- and I do like to use coupons!!

BIG LOTS – What would your perfect house lot look like?  Would it be big?  Smaller, with less lawn care?  Water feature?  Stone wall?  Fenced in yard?  Wooded? The lot would big big and have a nice wooded area perhaps by a big lake with a private dock. There would need to be a fenced in area for the dog but mostly secluded enough where you don’t need a fence around the yard. There would be a nice deck with a firepit outside and a good generous seating area…

WENDY’S – When you have an “all-day” excursion planned, do you prefer to sit down and eat a meal at a restaurant, or do you prefer a drive-through type experience in order to save more time for other activities? It really depends on who I am with and what kind of excursion it is.  For instance if I am going somewhere with BFM- because I don’t see her very often and we don’t get to go an as many excursions as we like- I would prefer a sit down meal because it would be part of the experience.  If I am somewhere with my sister-in-law, a sit down meal is more appropriate- especially if my nephew is with us.  If I am with my parents- its more about how much stuff we can cram into the day and then I don’t mind doing the drive through.
