Thanks for all the comments and concern for Paul's wife and brother, if you go back and visit today, you can see that Paul updated late last night!  Both patients did great and are on the road to recovery!  Yay!

libragem007 said...

oh my..!  Catman IS gorgeous!

I want him LOL!
Gem :-)

martygord said...

Hi Dawn,
I'm completely with you on Vanilla Ice Cream and Chocolate Chocolates.  Vanilla is much better as a flavor for ice cream and yoghurt.  Chocolate is best as -- well -- chocolate!

toonguykc said...

That was enlightening, but I just don't feel up for a long meme now.  Is there a website that has memes for lazy and/or ADD people like me?  ;)


eml625 said...

I LOVE that one. Some deep questions there, I think I will do it!
Big hugs,

chat2missie said...

randlprysock said...

Great answers Dawn!!  I love thunderstorms too!!  Oh and so glad to hear Paul and wife doing well.    LOL spiders!!  Shopping with grandma!!  Many hugs,

randlprysock said...

PS  I gotta try that "Am I speaking Chinese?" phrase!!  LOL sometimes I just think they set me on playback.  Why is it they have to hear things three, four, five, six times?  LOL

mleighin21st said...

Oh, this is a good one.  I'll tackle it, maybe in two parts if the timing is bad.  
What, no sushi?  ;(~
                                        Have a great weekend,  Leigh
