    Jo Jo,
    Nice to know more about you. Thanks for playing. I want to know more about meeting your childhood penpal. That must have been exciting. Best wishes to your & RJ's health.

    I met Janet through correspondence our class received when I was in the third grade. Her class picked little town schools in the west to write to. At the time my father was the Game Warden in the Medicine Bow, WY area. If I remember correctly, there were three of us who corresponded with her but I am the only one who still does. We have had several occasions to meet up over the years. Our worlds are so different and yet so much alike. We are down to sending cards and letters at holidays and birthdays and a phone call about once a year but we still keep in touch. She still lives in the same town in NJ and I have moved numerous times but our friendship always follows.

    I like this game! I'm sad to hear you still have health issues (from the car accident?), but you sure do seem to have a wide and loving network of support around for you. It's cool you and your childhood penpal are still in touch.

    Jolene, I see that you and Chewy share a fondness for health food. (Me, too.) Big Ditty? Are you a blues musician? Pregnant car rides are long, yes they are. Sending you good vibes for a return to pain-free, full strength. I didn't mean that to sound like a drug ad. Sorry.

    Hi JoJo, Thanks for tagging me! I posted my answers :-)

    Hope you're having a great time in AZ. Give everyone loves from me, okay? Love you!

    I've had an 18 wheeler in 48 states and a good share of Canada.

    I like to wear clothes that others consider worn out.

    I'm often called BBC.

    I like to read, camp, hike to the hot springs. And do spiritual retreats.

    What I want very badly at the moment is world peace.

    I have four cats.

    I had a chili burger for lunch today.

    Favorite holidays are Valentines day and the turkey eating season from Thanksgiving to Christmas, without all the commercial crap.

    Coffee, light beer.

    San: Ah yes, if you can call coffee health food. It is healthy for those around me for me to have a cup or two in the morning! LOL

    My doctor told me that it may take up to three years to get back to where I was but to expect to be at 90% even then. I just want the pain to go away! I have an exercise and stretching program to help me with the pain and of course losing a little over 100 pounds in two years hasn't hurt anything. I just keep on keeping on! There are people worse off than I am and I am just thankful to be alive and walking again.

    Ms. Shrink: Yes, my health issues if you can call them that are from the auto accident but they are minor compared to what they could have been and I am very thankful for that! We all have our burdens and life struggles. The important thing to me is that I continue down my life path with a good spirit and stay confident.

    BBC: Thanks for stopping in and playing along!
