  1. Hey...we're all 'fat' these days. It's the 'in' thing to be.

  2. You really are a sharp cookie, and a funny one too!

  3. This afternoon I was watching my daughter's fast pitch softball game. I have a Kindle. Since I live far away from book stores, my e-reader has become a very enjoyable thing for me.

  4. I like the phrase "sharp cookie." Smart, yet down to earth and savvy. Good for you, "sharp cookie!"

  5. Amen to there being a lot of eye-roll worthy stuff out there. I alternate between rolling my eyes and shaking my fist. I've been out of the blogosphere for a while, so didn't know you'd had gall-bladder surgery. I do hope that you're feeling lots better by now. I'm happy to hear that you're teaching creative writing!

  6. What Harriet said. lol

    And Lord yes! There is much to cause eye rolling these days. I just usually don't go in public with my eyes showing much. I'm a stealth roller now.

  7. I agree with the eye-rolling and do-nothing non-celebrities. I am sooo tired of hearing about the Kardashians.


I enjoy your comments and always appreciate the opportunity to visit the blogs of my readers. I hope you have a great day!
