I'm in!....or game....or trying......anyway....smiles.

here's the thing....
I am taking the easy way out today....
I am letting someone else come up with the
"thoughts for the day"

Mandy at Good Cook
came up with the idea,
and I found it
(great name!)
Questions to let you know more than you could possibly want to know
about me.
So here goes;

Here are the instructions:

If you're reading this post, then you must:

(a) leave a comment and answer the below 25 questions that Mandy made up,

(b) write the answers to the questions below in your own blog post, if you have a blog, that is.

or (c) call yourself a scrooge in the comment below and refuse to answer them.

I hope you choose (A) or (B) but if you choose (C) then I'll just let the ghosts of Christmas past, present and future deal with you. If you do decide to write your own blog post about it, please mention Mandy since she is the author of these important questions. (Writers credit and all that jazz - thanks!)

  1. I don't like to follow instructions; it's so restrictive! ;)

    I don't meme because each numbered item is a potential blogpost...not because I'm a scrooge. I post every day and that can be a challenge.

    I plan to continue to share my thoughts on Christmas in my posts this month...promise.

    That said, I did enjoy reading your 25 responses. When I was in basic training eons ago, my nickname was Cindy Lou Who. Really.

  2. I love Cindy lou Who!!

  3. Great answers! I especially liked your last one! Thanks for playing along. Merry Christmas.


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment...I am grateful....smiles.
