Today's Question(s):

Day camp, and I'd rather be the camper. Fun and games could include Massages from Pierce Brosnan in the morning, afternoon cupcake decorating and eating, followed by late afternoon massages from Pierce Brosnan. The evenings entertainment would include all the single ladies in the county demonstrating why they would be the perfect date for Magnum Mike. The camp would then vote on the best one--hope he agrees with our choice!



Bonus Question:

Old Christmas cards. I have some from 20 years ago (if they have written messages or letters).


Extra Credit Question:

Last thing you went searching for in your home ?

My husband's dress shoes. Yes, we found them.

Did you find it ?
