  1. I certainly agree about Mr. Limbaugh.

  2. I have Parkinson's Disease in my family. The way Limbaugh pilloried Michael J. Fox, and the ignorance of the condition it revealed, makes me wonder why anyone anywhere listens to him about anything.

    I recently learned from my sister that HR Pufnstuf was a sheriff/dragon. I always got that he was a sheriff (the star tipped me off), but I had always been confused as to his species. It's funny how you can go years and years without hearing about something, like Puf, and then all of a sudden it turns up all the time.

  3. Agree 100% on Limbaugh. Also, i know the guy who gave the world Sleestax.

  4. Three fantastic shows--that was the hardest question for me to answer this week, to narrow it down to three!

  5. I love Bill Maher and agree with most of your views. Happy Sunday!

  6. Homeless, old w/ dementia...those are some pretty real fears in this world. I also worry about how I will be treated if I have to have caregivers. You hear so many awful stories.

  7. I loved reading your answers and found several surprises among them. Very cool. And I'm right there with you on outliving the hubbies. Not a fun thought at all. :(

  9. Can't help with the Spanish, unless it is words for ordering food. I can meet you sometime and teach you to knit, though. It is a fun project to feel useful when watching mindless televisionšŸ˜ƒ

  10. I always enjoy reading your answers to these lists. Favorite foods? Now that one is a bit surprising :-)

  11. You'd get on well with my niece, who loves eating cucumbers. I remember the first two programs you mentioned in the last question, but not the third.


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