I come by and catch up every few days but, mercy...since starting baby sitting my little grandbaby, my computer time is so sporadic...sheeeeeesh! So I don't always have time to leave a comment. Today, tho, I have no one to pester me but the grand poopies, who I'm puppy sitting while my grandson and the kids are up in Seattle for a weekend of Mariners' games. Dear Hubby left around noon to go elk hunting at the coast. My daughter is at work. The house is MINE! And so is the COMPUTER!! And, after several walks and having baths a little while ago, the dogs are crashed on top of the couch!! So here I am, lol! I LOVED your quotes...I've been visiting those who've let me know they did them and it sure is interesting to see how people "picture" themselves in the quotes they use! Say, how did your visit with Mrs. Darling and Mel go??? Did you enjoy it? Have a great weekend, Tammy...I love this beautiful sun, don't you?
