You're right! This WAS better than a Partridge in a Pear Tree. (the 10 -or was it 11 - was particularly interesting :)

Rebecca, In Chicago, with friends, we were amused at this work of art in a dessert bar; illustrating that we seniors are more juvenile than we should be.

Lots of laughter there..! 10 or 11 ? Gee..i am not sure too. I can't really count that well, which was why i chose to do Law- since it has nothing to do with Math! Also made me laugh when i saw the 'skinny' snowman! Well, sure saves some time. ;D


PS How are you settling down in your new place? Are you getting familiar with the local stores yet?

Hi Brenda,

I just like to send you my love and to say thank you for your friendship.

I am leaving my blogs for good. Just like to make some last stops first.

Silver, I will miss you and your kind comments. Maybe someday I will pick up a book and think "This feels familiar?" Make sure that you put in your bio that you started with a blog so I will recognize you. Blessings, friend
