August 2014 newsletter poll and caption winners!

Posted by on

september 2014 newsletter poll

 

The winners
Below, the 10 winners of our August 2014 newsletter poll below. If you see your name, claim your $2. (See how at the bottom of the list.)

  1. tammy j - Nothing better than…siting in the shade with a cold beverage, smell of bbq working on the grill. Kids laughing and playing around you, while shooting the breeze with friends and family! That is called summer.
  2. carpediem5790 - A stack of good books from the library, ice cold, crisp raspberry lemonade in a frosty glass, backyard tent up for the kids to sleep and play in, feet in the kiddie pool as they play laughing all around you, cold watermelon and sandwiches to grab on a hungry run; perhaps popsicles and paddle pops and extra ice, crouding the freezer or dripping down the chins of children; crickets chirping the evening temperature as still quite warm for a summer’s night as we sit and watch the fireflies rise from their grassy hiding place to show off their lights and find their mates. Ahhhh that, THAT is summer!
  3. Sarah - Shark free is the way to be, chilling in the pool with family and great friends! !
  4. Amanda - Definitely BBQing!!! Then i can have a pool in my yard n drinks in my hand, n the AC rionly a few feet away!!!
  5. keone mo - after a hot summer day of working then coming home to a nice cool pool for a swim and a beer is my choice for the summer
  6. nadina - In July, our AC broke and we went four fun-filled (not!) days without any AC. So, we went to the mall, but not to shop. We needed to get away from the darn heat! But even when our AC is up and running, my family and I like to go to the mall and “power walk” – it’s fun and you forget that you’re exercising! Also, mall walking is great in any type of weather – especially where we live – the summer weather is so fickle. One minute it’s sunny and then the next the rain just comes down, but we don’t need to worry since we’re inside the mall!
  7. Bridget Oakley - We live near the beach and, as much as I hate to admit it, I get bored with it from going so much. So, I would have to say I enjoy reverting back to those days of my childhood, playing in the yard with my kids in the hose, filling up water balloons and throwing them at each other (not getting angry when my kitchen is a mess from all of the water that inevitably ends up on the floor from coming inside to “hide”), firing up the BBQ and grilling out and then enjoying some s’mores on the fire!
  8. Sue Cole - I voted for biking, however if you’re biking on a hot Summer day to enjoy nature AND you’re working up a sweat, you’re doing it wrong! You need to find a trail through the woods (for deep shade) and bicycle as quietly as possible (including your breathing!) in order to hear the birds and the breeze, all the while sitting as upright as possible, so as to enable your head to turn easily in order to take in more of your surroundings.
  9. DeniseOli - The best way is laying on the sand under a shaded umbrella with a piña colada in one hand jamming to music using your ear phones and just getting lost in the moment. .. ahhh wish I was at the beach now
  10. Lisa0829 - The ocean, the sand, waves, wind, sounds, smells of the water, laying in the shade of a large umbrella, my feet digging deeply into the cool sand, building sand castles, splashing water & falling into the shallow waves. Some of the senses of summer…

  1. Leondre Wheeler - What a nut job!!!…
  2. LeeAnn - When I asked you to bring me a nut-cracker this is not what I had in mind!
  3. Helen R. - I am an utter nutter.
  4. Garth Tobler - Surprise,surprise! This one’s green too!
  5. Kara Rae Garland - This job is driving me nuts.

About Kisha
My name is Kisha and I discovered Vindale while browsing online. I want to thank you for the opportunity to provide a voice and opinion on so many topics. A little about myself: I am a Florida native and enjoy conversations that stretch my mind provide me with information to ponder. I enjoy exploring subjects that require reasoning and investigation such spirituality, paranormal, archeology and metaphysics. 

My family is nonconventional. I have a domestic partner of 7 years and we have a 13yo son. Aside from the usual family demands we enjoy family time outdoors and and anything that involves a pool!

I’m jealous of my husband’s friend!

Posted by on

Dear Vindale,

My husband and his best friend hang out three nights a week, at least. He’s a nice guy but I get jealous. Should I tell my husband I want him to cut down his friend nights to once a week? Or is that selfish?

Sincerely,

Green Eyes

What should she do?
