Today's post is brought to you by the letter H.

There is a meme going around where you are assigned a letter and you come up with 10 things that you love that start with that letter. My friend over at My ADHD Me offered so I accepted the challenge. She gave me the letter H. So here are 10 things I love that begin with the letter H.

For starters, it’s Hot, Hot, Hot. I love hot wings, hot summer days and hot tubs.

1. Hot wings. I love good hot wings. I never met a hot wing I didn’t like.(well unless they were under cooked….Yuck) And no Hooters doesn’t have the best hot wings. That is just an excuse that we men use to get in the door. Theirs are ok but I have had ones that were a lot better. Sorry guys, I spilled the beans on this one.

2. Hot summer days. I prefer hot summer days over cold winter ones. Give me sweat over hypothermia any day. I welcome Global warming. Bring it on. Just kidding but I do like it hot.

3. Hot tubs. When it does get cold, you can find me in our hot tub or any hot tub for that matter. Yes we have one at home. We get in ours daily. Last weekend while in Orlando, we got in the hot tub at the hotel where we stayed. It was a little too hot but that is better than not being hot enough.

4. Honest people. I hate liars. I really respect someone who has the backbone to stand up and tell the truth even though it might not be pleasant. I like Sarah Palin. There I said it. I was being honest.

5. Halleluiah. That is my favorite word and one of the reasons I like Christmas songs so much. You get to sing “Halleluiah” in lots of them. I also like the words Emanuel and Noel. There is nothing like a great Christmas song.

6. Honorary Discharges. I have the upmost respect for anyone who serves or served in the Military to protect our freedom. Freedom isn’t free and these guys and girls are the ones paying for it. Thank you all.

7. Happy. I love being happy. I think it is a personal choice to be happy. I have seen really wealthy people who are sad and really poor people who are happy. So it has to be a choice. I do my best to brighten everyone’s day at work but some people just refuse to lighten up. What’s your mood today? Do you want me to call you? :)

8. Home grown tomatoes. To quote a song: There’s only two things that money can’t buy and that’s true love and home grown damaters. Take two slices of fresh white bread. Add a thick slice of beef steak tomato, add mayo and some salt and pepper and you have a slice of Heaven. Yum.

9. Hardies Thick burgers. I am struggling with my diet this morning and as I was thinking about what I love that starts with the letter H, this is what popped into my head. I would kill for one right now. It has to be better than these wheat things and this orange.

10. Honeysuckle. If you have never smelled honeysuckle you are really missing out. In the south, on warm summer mornings, you can go outside and the smell of honeysuckle fills the air. We have it growing all along our fence and in the woods beside our house. The only things that smell better are gardenias and ginger flowers.

Well that’s my 10 favorite H’s. I won’t tag anyone else because most of you have already played but if you would like to play along, I would be glad to pick a letter for you.

Have a Honey of a day,
Greg

oh, boy...i'm wicha on the mater sammies...my dad used to grow BIG BOYS and they were the best!

and how many days of my life were spent hunting down the honeysuckles...we not only smelled them, we would pick a few, pop off the base, pull out the stamen and draw out the honey...wrapping our tongues around itand then our mouths would explode with that wonderfully sweet, honesuckle juice...luv'd it!!!

4. I love Sarah Palin too.
5. Me too!
6. Me too!
7. One of my favorite quotes is by Dolly Parton: "Money can't buy you happiness, but at least you can dress nice while you're depressed." Love that one! But yes, true happiness comes from within. Blah.

I loved your list. Do you ever eat the honeysuckle juice? We pull the ends off and drink the nector. You only get 1 drop, but it's sweet!

Great H's! I like summer hot days, honesty, our armed forces, home grown tomatoes and my daugter LOVES the word Halleluiah and runs around our home singing, yelling and laughing (if that is possible) that word! Pure joy! Your Hardees H meets my McDonalds M! Have a great day!

Chatty Kelly said...

I am NOT a party pooper. So there. I am GREAT fun. So I told my sis to give me a stinking letter cause other wise Greg won't be my friend anymore. Peer pressure. LOL.

Go get a little thick burger. It's less calories.

Katherine Aucoin said...

You did a good job with the H's. I'm a fan of honesty and honeysuckle.

Garden Girl said...

Love #7! Nothing like throwin' your head back and laughin' like a crazy person! I have a HUGE laugh, kind of like an explosion really, and three friends that laugh just the same way. It is so FUN to get together with them. Everyone else needs earplugs! LOL!!!!!
So, pick a letter for me....I want to play!

I got the letter S when I played a couple of days ago. I've laughed at how many of the answers on these memes are food!

I'm definitely with you on honesty and home-grown tomatoes. Give me lilacs instead of honeysuckle though - I'm allergic.

Debbie @Like a Rose said...

Oh, I almost forgot, I loved your snow story comment on Linda's blog!

Edie said...

I'll take the hot days over cold ones any day too. Admire people who are honest and those who serve in our military. Great job with the letter H.

Scarlet said...

Honeysuckle reminds me of my great aunt Trini. She always smelled like honeysuckle.

I, too, am a fan of hot wings. Country Sweet wing sauce from Rochester, NY is THE BEST!

PS - What wing sauce do you use??

Mocha with Linda said...

Loved your list. Except I'm not much into hot wings or wings of any kind.

And honeysuckle along the fence reminds me of being a kid!

I did the letter N last week. That one was surprisinglu hard!

God's girl said...

Good list of "H"'s there. I noticed you even took my name in vain there in #8 :)

I also love home grown tomatoes and Sarah Palin.

Have a great day!

Edwina at The Picket Fence said...

I am with you on the Hot Wings, they are my favorite weekend must have. Enjoyed reading your H's

Wanda said...

Great list Greg.... I haven't done a meme in a long time...and I just might need a post one of these days.... so Hey, Give me a LETTER!

LOL:Wanda

Kim said...

Love the list!! HOT WINGS, HONESTY, HAPPY and HOMEGROWN TOMATOES are my favs! :)

I wanna play!! Give me a letter! :)

My ADHD Me said...

As I read this I was thinking Yes, Yes, Yes....until #9...ugh...I think we had too much Hardies when I was a kid.
Otherwise...yes, yes, yes.....

ChrisJ said...

I have another 'H' especially because we just went out for a fish dinner -- at $20 a plate -- and the plates were cold. I do hate cold plates for a hot dinner. The fish was great but it would have been better on a hot plate.

OK: I'll take. Give me a letter.

Monogram Queen said...

I missed this yesterday?

You left out an important "H"...


Ho's *snicker*

Chel's Leaving a Legacy said...

OH I miss home grown maters...we had a fantastic garden of them for a couple of years, but haven't grown them since. It seems they keep getting taken over by blight. Each year it got worse. Any suggestions?

I love Sarah Palin, too. I hope she runs for office in four years.

And honeysuckle...wonderful.

Beverlydru said...

Now that's a southern gentleman's list if I ever saw it. I love this meme.

Marla said...

All nice things for the letter H. I haven't posted mine, but I have an easy letter! I love home grown tomatoes, do you grow your own? also really like hot wings!!

Sandy said...

I love the aroma of honeysuckle, love it...I've even tried finding candles with that scent.

Enjoyed all your H's....

TitansFan said...

My favorite H is Hot Tub. It is what gets rid of all of my least favorite things in life. I can't wait to get in and watch a TV show.
