Thanks so much for the nomination! I can't believe you are 51 and have a 33 year old. You look like you're in your thirties! Are you hiding the fountain of youth somewhere? Or some kind of anti aging super drug?

Doreen said...

Thank you for nominating me. Boy, I was thinking it was cold here (42 degrees) until I looked at your pictures...brrrr

Lin said...

I like your list. Love the pottery collection--can we see it??

Hot Rocks said...

Lin, that is a great idea for a future post! I will get on that, thanks!

Duni said...

Congratulations on the award!!!
While reading your list I had the same idea as Lin - I, too, would like to see your wonderful pottery :)

Nancy said...

Thanks so much for the award! It was great to read about you -- and I knew we had to be about the same age because of the music you like (I'm 52) -- the music tells all :) -- thanks again, I'll post the award as soon as I can accumulate the info.
