Good morning, I enjoyed reading your answers and the photos. Snickers is so cute. I need a mega squirrel proof feeding station. The Poppy Seed salad sounds yummy. Being sick for 8 weeks is awful, I am so glad you are feeling better. I like watching the HGTV and the Food Network, I am addicted now to some of the hosts on MSNBC, Morning Joe is one of them. A trip on a bicycle is just amazing to me. Thanks for sharing more about you. Happy Wednesday, enjoy your day!

Loved your first Christmas post. I dragged out all the OLD ornaments too... some from 1974... my first tree. So many, many memories hanging on these little limbs.

Here's to continued GOOD HEALTH!! blessings and hugs ~ tanna
