oooo...THANK YOU for letting me do this fun tag...
I just copied it and will try to do it this week or next at the latest...
I LOVED reading all about YOU!!

Nancy said...

I will try to do this tomorrow. I am usually not good at cut and paste, so I might have to either have Heidi take over my blog to do it, or write it all down. Thanks for thinking of me.
Bill is here now working on my laptop again. We shall see. I know I could plug it in to my main computer, but I am trying to get it to work on my netgear.
Have a good day.

Love Bears All Things said...

Yes, I'll do it. I think it is the same as Barbara H at Stray Thoughts posted today and I had already copied and pasted it. I'll refer to you when I post.
That song: I have it on my play list too. I'll look and see what else we have thats the same.
By the way, I'm happy you'd like to be a link in the circle journal in 2009. It was fun even if it took 8 months for it to get back to me.
