I am a big "eye" person. Windows to the soul, and all.............
I agree. You can tell a lot by looking into the eyes. Have you ever seen anyone with eyes so dark they are black?
Yes, I have seen a few people like that. And for some reason, that reminded me when colored contacts were "all the rage." I often thought it would be fun to have a collection of different, pretty colors to try out. Some really were pretty, and make the eyes pop. My eyes are blue, but a very dark blue, like my dad's eyes were.
Another thing I notice about people is if they are smiling and friendly or not. Some are so very serious and not interested in "chit chat," like at the store, or wherever, and some are so open and friendly.
Here, Most have that "don't mess with me look". I think it is because we are near a big city. Back home people smile and say hi. Here people think it rude if you say "excuse me". Excuse me here means get out of the way, while back home it means, sorry I am getting in your way.
People are pretty friendly, as a rule, in my state, no matter what area: big city or small town. After all, we have to keep up our "Minnesota Nice" (i.e. Minnesotan passive aggression, lol) reputation.
I heard on a radio show the other day that there are over 86 different languages spoken here. That may be why people are not as friendly. Different cultures, different customs. You are lucky to live in a state with nice people and a lot of lakes!
You got me curious, and I found this:
"Overview: Minnesota is a polyglot state. Over 95 different languages are spoken in the homes of children in Minnesota’s public schools, according to the Minnesota Department of Education. These language include such rarities as Persian, Icelandic, Wolof and Yao, but the six major languages other than English spoken in Minnesota are (in descending order of frequency) Spanish, Hmong, Somali, Russian, Vietnamese and Arabic."

Maybe it's not language, but population size. I was trying to find info but it was taking too long. Maybe your water is better? 🙂 I think anytime there are large areas of population, people just want to get where they want to go, and lose manners. The town I live in now is more friendly than other Illinois towns I've lived in, but still not as friendly as other states I've lived in.
The very first thing I notice about people are the shoes they're wearing an their fingers+nails!
Very interesting. Do you like shoes a lot?
Foot fetish? LOL! 😉 (Just kidding)
Maybe a shoe fetish? My daughter LOVES shoes and purses. I think they are her most favorite things to own in the world.
She is not alone, I am sure. Many women are the same, including my SIL (who has a thing for handbags). I am always too lazy to change out my purses, so I don't own many, but I have way too many pairs of black shoes. I need more variety, but I can never afford as many shoes as I would like. I tend to wear the same pairs over and over.
I always had a thing for dressers and bowls. Everyone has to have something, right?
Dressers and bowls? That is an interesting somethings to have a "thing" for, lol. How many dressers can one collect? Or did you just like nice dressers? Or do you mean dresses? lol That just dawned on me as I was typing this. haha! So, now you must settle it. Dressers or dresses? 😉
Dressers. I didn't have a lot of them but I love them, especially the antique ones. I had a high boy and a low boy if you know what those are. I love mixing bowls, mostly Fire King or Pyrex. I especially love the Fire King with tulips!
Okay. So that was not a typo, lol! I don't have any dressers right now! 😢 I love the old crockery bowls.My mom has one that belonged to my Great Aunt. You would love Red Wing, MN.
I used to have something Red Wing but I don't collect it. It would be a fun place to visit though. I wonder if they have a physical store.
Yes, the entire town is filled with crockery stores, LM. It is also a very pretty area to travel to, especially in the fall, as much as I do not like fall, but very pretty drive and area. 🙂
Spring and Fall are my most favorite seasons. I love taking fall photos.
Mine are summer, spring, fall, winter. Fall has its beauty, but it always makes me sad, because I know what is coming.
Summer is too hot for me and winter is too cold. I love a beautiful snow but not the ice, dirty snow that comes with it.
I never complain that it is too hot. When it comes to heat, bring it on! lol! 😉
Heat makes me ill. I feel as if I can't breathe. I know it's good for some medical conditions but worse for others.
I don't really care for high humidity with the heat, because that can be draining, but I don't even complain about that, lol. I love the tropical heat and the dry heat and everything in between. I would much rather be overheated than cold.
You have a point there. Heat in the west in different than heat in the south. The humidity is what gets to me.
