  1. Kingsmen was my most recent movie, too. I thought it was good fun!

  2. I really dislike chocolate covered cherries, but my mom loves them. I just bought a big box of them today to give her for Christmas. I bought her a second box of candy that I might like....chocolate covered blueberries!

  3. i like the 3 things you want for christmas...i want those, too. :) and my pen pal is from austria, but we haven't written in a while! i think i will go and write to her again after this. luckily with email the response is much faster than the old way of doing pen pals when we first started corresponding!

  4. Love your movie title. I have the same Eagles Live album/cassette/cd that I've been listening to since college on my phone right now. :)

  5. I had the same answers as you for 9, 10, and part of 11! I guess I am not as original as I thought! ;)

  6. That's hilarious about the lights! And yay about the treadmill!
    If you ever get Windows 10 to behave, I'll throw you an online party!!
    I'm glad my computer is too old for 10.

  7. Watched, Kingsmen, just the other night. Enjoy it very much.


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