Who is your favorite well-known person? Well, I've had a bit of a crush on Jeff Goldbloom for years.... but that's not what you're asking... but being honest, he was the first person that jumped up a waved in my mind. So ummmm does it have to be someone still living??? If not then it would have to be Dr. Seuss, who wrote the first book I ever read... Green Eggs and Ham.

But my most favorite, favorite is for bumming around the house~ My baggy, tie-dyed cotton jumper, with my dangly, pink spiral-shell earrings with matching bracelet and necklace, my pink seedbead foot thongs (these are like sandals without the soles and a big smile because I still have them all! ( a throw back from my hippie days)

This will be my last day here for awhile because everything is packed & my computer will be on its way to Massachusetts tomorrow. So I wish you all a great rest of the week & I hope my son will be able to set up my laptop in a vacant house (the furniture takes about ten days to get there.) And my car is being shipped because if I can not drive on a freeway, I most certainly won't manage to drive across the country ; it would take three weeks.
Take good care , everyone ......
