    All great. Just thought of one. "If I can ignore the pain in my back, maybe it will ignore me back." With cuddles from my sweet kitty, of course.
    When I get my Roloff T shirt, I will wear it out. So then I will get another one!
    LOVED the ep with the pumpkin family, as well as your many others. Love having DVR on my cable to keep your shows.

  2. I really enjoy reading about your daily activities. I like, #22, Life is a work of Art, designed by the one who lives it.

  3. Interesting that you ignored all of those suggested that had to do with family...
