This or That with Pia Manning
Dog or Cat?
I honestly have to say that I like both. I’ve long been involved in animal rescue-dogs, cats and the occasional horse-for years. My current furry population consists of my big yellow dog, Blondie, and three cats-Frieda, Belle and Gus. Blondie is a cross between a yellow lab and a German shepherd. I remember seeing her picture on our local humane society’s website. I fell in love right then and there. Blondie’s family decided they didn’t want her anymore. She was 5 ½ and no longer a cute puppy. She is an awesome friend and companion with an endless supply of unconditional love. Blondie is a very patient listener!
My rescued cats also share my life. Their endless antics never fail to bring a smile-even on the darkest days. Gray tabby Frieda showed up one December-I’d like to believe she got lost and wasn’t dumped outside, but I don’t know. This little bundle of energy loves to cuddle and snuggle.
Gus’s mom was a foster when she gave birth to three kittens. Two of the kittens were beautiful, petite flame points. They found homes quickly. Gus, a more common orange and white cat, did not. His foster mom reached her home’s cat capacity, so I agreed to share my home with him. Gus loves boxes and galloping back and forth down the hallway. (He’s a zoomie!) I think he and Frieda will be fast friends.
Belle is a tortoise. Her original home burned to the ground, and her owner passed away. I found Belle a year later, sick and huddled on my deck It took several visits to my wonderful vet, but she’s now sorted out and another couch snuggle bug.
Cake or Pie?
Okay, I confess-I’m a chocolate fiend. And while I enjoy chocolate pies, I love chocolate cake with chocolate icing. And now that I think about it, icing makes the key difference here. Pies have lovely fillings, but cakes slathered in icing are the best! (In my humble opinion!)
Football or Basketball?
I’m going with football on this one! Don’t get me wrong, I try hard to support women’s basketball too, but I attended high school in a town close to Ann Arbor, Michigan deep in Wolverine football territory. The closer to the Michigan-Ohio State super-duper-rivalry-to-top-all-rivalry games we became, the higher the insanity mounted. One memorable year a helicopter dropped leaflets and support petitions circulated among faithful fans. Excitement and fun surrounded fandom back then. The game brought folks together for an afternoon and fun.
The love of my life played football in college, so lol, I suppose that helped my appreciate of the game too!
Coffee or Tea?
Coffee-definitely. Many folks enjoy tea-my husband among them-but tea isn’t my ‘thang,’. I think it has to do with drinking tea whenever I was sick. Maybe I associate tea with stomach flu, so…naw.
Winter or Summer?
I’m a January woman. I love pristine, sparkling snow that squeaks like Styrofoam when I walk on it. Overhead, the sun beams down in cerulean blue skies. And my car thermometer reads 21 below zero. Yes, it’s cold. But that means homemade soups and bread, sweaters and flannel sheets. I love it.
Here, north of HWY 8 in Wisconsin, we have summer in July-both days of it. Summer flies by. Fly being the operative word. Ever hear of deer flies? No? They’re nasty wingers with stingers that can ruin anyone’s outdoor fun. I’ve yet to find a bug repellent that dampens their blood sucking enthusiasm. They have a relatively short lifecycle that encompasses the entire month of July. Then there are the mosquitoes.
What happened to June and August you ask? June is the month set aside for clearing those big snow mounds piled up in parking lots. Some folks take down their outdoor Christmas decorations in June-they ice holding them to houses and tree branches has (mostly) melted by then. August! We usually have our first frost in August! Summer’s over!
