  2. I like the life in your LIVE. Very lively.

    Thanks for the TG wishes but we don't officially celebrate it here in the UK - I've always assumed that in the US what you are being thankful for is escaping from here (and wherever else you - plurally - have come from)!

  4. Love the quote, and the illustration . Interestingly, I read it as "LOVE" (with a tiny "O") ... it works both ways, right? :-)

  28. Willie,
    Was expecting a turkey and got a spring bouquet instead.
    Raise a glass of wine on Turkey Day in my honor...I hit the big 59 that day!
    Cheers,
