Hmmmm . . . . . and you say I can't list my husband ???? This is interesting. I'll have to find time to sit down (without a book or hand work). I had made a resolution to start reading again, something I really love but haven't done except for going on vacations and when I read a book, I usually devour it picking it up every moment I get to sit down. So far in about three months, I've read about five paperbacks and have really loved every minute of it even when the book wasn't particularly enthralling or my cup of tea!

Hey Kate....I was a manager at KFC for 5 years, and loved almost every moment of it! Oh...the stories I could tell.....lol...I miss it! And I love Betty Boop and Wallace and Gromit! I also forgot to mention Fraggle Rock earlier...Can't forget my Doozers!!

Jody...so whatca reading? The only book I have actually managed to finish in the last year was Marley and Me! That book either had me crying or laughing so hard it hurt!

Katie, I don't know if there'd be enough paper in the country for me to ever finish such a list!

Katie, my list would be way to long to put in a blog entry. I am going to have to think about this one for a while. Good idea though.
