  1. Congratulations my friend!! WOW! The front page and the versatile blogger award in the same week! How fabulous!! :-)...Most of the things in your list I already knew about you, except for #5. Really?! With all of that beautiful water around you in Michigan too! LOL ...By the way, I love the look of Cocker Spaniels. {Poor little "Braindead"! ^_^}

  2. You're welcome. You deserve it :)
    Wow, you married your High School sweetheart. I think that is just wonderful. I don't blame you about getting seasick. Congratulations on making the front page!

  3. Thanks My friend Wug!! I know, it's hard to believe I get seasick! I not only get seasick, but car sick too if I'm not careful. And airplane sick!! I take Dramamine to ward it off. We loved our dog but he was a psyco!! Had separation anxiety REALLY bad and so we couldn't help ourselves with his nickname! Thanks for the comment!

  4. Thanks for your nice comment Jo-anne and for the award too! Yep, I did marry my high school sweetheart and he's still a sweetheart!!
