5 things I love

Over at RevGals, Songbird invites us to share five things we love, or don't love, about SUMMER.

Sorry the photo didn't make it.

1.St Teresa, Florida, is one of my earliest memories. My granddad threw me off the dock with my dad just below, to see if I could swim. This was before I could walk. And I did swim All I needed was fins!I truly love this place. It is like no other.

2.I love the people in my church. I was never in one in which everyone (literally) loved everyone else, and was always ready to help

3.I love gulf seafood, which I darent eat right now. Bah!

4.I love my very small flower garden. It is an occasion for joy when something actually blooms!

5, I love the A/C in my house so I can be comfortable when it gets to 107 degrees

I am having a real problem

with the phrase "no problem'. For years, my thank yous have been sincerely meant, and You are welcome has been the answer. Welcome sounds as if the responder has really been glad to render a service. On the other hand, "no problem: sounds to me as if the service wouldn't be offered had it not been convenient. This bothers me every time I hear it, though I continue to say you are welcome. Does this bother anyone else, or am I too picky?
