  1. Congratulations on the award! I enjoyed learning more about you. Your weird food list has me interested (have not had one...yet), and there is nothing like a good John Grisham book. I need to check out his latest. Your grandsons are two lucky kids :)

    1. Thank you Sharon for stopping by! Happy Halloween

  2. Thanks for joining in the fun Paula. I love the way you love too!!

  3. Congratulations to you and thank you for the nomination! :-)

  4. Congrats for the award and for thinking of me, Paula. I will do it, but probably not for a few weeks. I usually only post once (twice) sometimes a week except during A/Z and I already have my next post written in my mind, LOL. But I definitely will do this.

    LOL with you not weighing yourself. I haven't in about 3 years. I can tell by clothes I go up and down depending on whether I'm watching my diet since I'm in the same size clothes, they just are tight or looser depending.


    1. Thanks you Betty. Take your time. It is always something to fall back on when you can't think of anything else to blog about. A-Z will be sneaking upon us won't it?

  5. What Betty said. LOL! My inner-Barbara-Walters is delighted to accept! Give me a couple days?

    Unfortunately, I can't seem to break my addiction to the bathroom scale. Stupid, how a couple of numbers can make or break my mood.
    Loved your "Random Fact #9", Paula. Here, I thought I was the only one!!! (I mean, have you ever seen a smiling jogger?)

    1. "inner-Barbara Walters"....LOL! Now there is a woman we could chat about!


I love to hear what you might think. Leave me a comment. I guarantee though that I will delete your comment if you are just here to cause trouble. So tread lightly!
