Good Deeds, Numbers, and the Medley

I missed the Medley last week because grandkiddos were here most of the week which is a perfect reason not to have been here but I did miss 'seeing' everyone. Today is Mother's 84th birthday and her first birthday not here with us. It's way more difficult to keep her passing in the back of my mind when a holiday or birthday pops up but I am not one to dwell or wallow so, come on and join in the fun of this week's Medley. 

Here is a medley of questions you may choose to answer on your Wednesday blog.  I always start with the National Day and base questions from there. No rules and there is no obligation. Link up if you want to.  I'm doing this to fill my Wednesday and if you are interested, then I invite you to join in!!  It might be fun!!





National Good Samaritan Day is observed on March 13th.  This day is also known as Good Samaritan Involvement Day. This is a day for unselfish actions to help those in need and to celebrate kindness.
The term “good Samaritan” comes from the Bible parable where a Samaritan helped a stranger who had been robbed and beaten and left to die by the side of the road.  The Samaritan not only cleaned the man’s wounds and clothed him, but took him to an inn where he paid for the man’s care.
The term is used today to describe those who perform acts of kindness for those in need, especially those who are strangers.
Make an effort to help someone who is struggling or having a problem. Use #GoodSamaritanDay to post on social media.
1.  When did someone come to your rescue and can you tell us about it? My mom and my dad have come to my rescue from time to time and I have a friend who would be here to rescue me in a heartbeat if I needed him to but that's about it. Mostly, I try to rescue myself. I've learned over the last few decades that the best person to depend on is myself. 
2.  When did you help someone out of a jam and can you tell us about it? I've never had to help someone out of a major jam but there are those in my family who seem to need to be helped out of smaller jams on a regular basis and let's just leave it at that. 
3.  What are your thoughts on being a good Samaritan? Being a good Samaritan is fine as long as the motives behind the act are pure. I imagine it gets interesting when someone is known as a good Samaritan and people take advantage of their good nature, too. Leave it to me to find the down side. LOL Some states (like Florida) have even passed Good Samaritan laws so you don't get into trouble with the law for trying to help someone. And how ridiculous is it that a law such as this would even need to be considered? Of course, it all goes back to those motives I mentioned. 
4.  Thursday is National Pi Day.  It's a fun play on the date 3.14.  Will you have some pie to celebrate? I will not. Pie is delicious but it contains sugar so, no pie for me. 
5.  Did you know that Pi is the most studied number in mathematics? I don't know if I actually know this or I think I know it because you mentioned it. LOL Are you good with numbers? Yes and no. Mostly, no. It depends on the numbers or the math being studied.
6.  Tell us something random about your week. Lula Mae and I made up a song. It's super simple but we love it and sing it all the time when she's at my house. I have a video but y'all are going to have to excuse the first part where it's me singing. I carry tunes in my heart but not in my voice. 

She's really into expressions right now so I asked her to show me her pouty face--

 This monkey was at my house last week, too--

Have a wonderful rest of the week, Y'all!
