  1. I had to clean the coops, too. Fun fun. ;-)
    "Interesting" very diplomatic.

  2. I may adopt "interesting" to use with my students.

  3. This comment has been removed by the author.

  4. I would like to live somewhere else. Maybe just have an adventure then live quietly somewhere.
    The first kiss is always the best kiss when you care for someone but when it turns to love the first kiss is the most memberable but all their kisses are the best!

  5. I bite my fingernails, least when I'm bored or stressed. I wish I could stop for good, but even if I could they don't look good when I let them grow. Too much damage to the nail bed from years of biting.

  6. Why didn't I think of Kathy Bates? She would be perfect too.


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