  2. Oh, if you only knew how tame my life is... I make dust look exciting.
    I'd love to hear your answers, Debbie. Just copy and paste the questions into a text document and email it to me.
    Thanks for commenting.
    BTW, I've tried to get a hold of your older daughter, but she's tricky. Will keep trying.

  3. What business plan? What baby? And I thought I was up-to-date with you on Monday..............

    Delighted to read this interesting information... most of it not a surprise, but very endearing :) I love your writing style!

    However, like Mama Sue.... what business plan??
    And a baby?... yes, that deep desire has only been delayed by legal paperwork, I know. Big brother is ready to have another member join his family. =)

    your mom
