Well I've learned a few things about you I didn't know.  Like where you got your middle name, that is neat.  And boy you sure did have your share and mine of the scones this year, I didn't get one.  Sorry the Beach Boys were a dissapointment, I have their greatest hits CD and my granddaughters love it.  Joni

Eye Color:  All  good answer.   And 65 is a mere babe compared to dirt!!!  That's a good age.  You can actually start thinking about not working anymore and traveling around in a motor home with your kitty!   lol

Some of your answers are very interesting,  I am soon going to oregon for two months, i see you were born in Tacoma, Washington, I will be visiting Seattle.  My second name is Linda.  I also like Debbie Macombers books.  I too would like to travel in a motor home across the United States and Canada so much beauty to see.  Thanks for visiting my journal, I hope to come back here again soon.
