  3. Brown with soft white highlights is now my description for my hair color. Brilliant.

  4. What a fun list. You must try mango. Not something that's mango flavored, but a real mango.

  5. I concur. Have a mango. If you are not brave enough to try one, get some peaches and add one mango and make a crisp or a crumble. Yum! Do NOT eat the peel. Too thick and rubbery.

    If you don't like jelly beans, you could try Jelly Bellys. Not the sour ones. Try toasted marshmallow and buttered popcorn. More yum.

    On the other hand, why find more candy to love? Except it IS fat free!

    1. Fat free is good. Maybe I should reconsider.

  6. I'm with you on the lying question--I don't lie about significant things, but a white one here and there is necessary to keep the peace.

  7. You have had a fly swatter used on you? There's a story there.

  8. I didn't have a fly swatter used on me, but I've had the spatula used many times.

    Wow, that's a lot of instruments! How come so many? My Pop-pop could play all those. Banjo was his favorite. He came from the Bradbury Piano family. They were Scottish missionaries.

  9. I would not have pegged you for a poodle person, nor did I know you played so many instruments. And mmm...mangoes. You should try one sometime!
