Thanks for stopping by Ann!


  1. Lovely choices. Can I be a fly on the wall at the dinner party please?

    1. Hi Raven,
      Thanks for dropping by! Consider yourself invited. Bring something wonderful for dessert!

  2. Great answers, and yes that dinner party sounds as though it would be fun!

    1. Hi Doris,
      Why thank you. Cherie asked some, um, penetrating questions. I'd like to be at a dinner party with those people myself, except I'd probably be too nervous to eat anything.

  3. Thanks for inviting me to play twenty questions on your blog, Cherie! It was a lot of fun to think about the questions and come up with responses. Sort of like being back in school again!
