The "Sneak-A-Peak Fairy" is coming to your home
Where is the one place you hope she won't "sneak a peek" ?
Anywhere in my house. I am a shy nudist. I am not an exhibitionist though. I don't want anyone to see me, just want to be left alone to do my own thing in the privacy of my home.

What is your favorite TV commercial that is running right now ?
I don't watch commercials. That's when I turn the volume off and pray.

Who was the last person you tried to avoid ?
I never try to avoid someone. I am always successful at avoiding people that I do not care for.

Did you have to employ any special tactics to do this ?
Nope.

There is a commercial for Traveler's Insurance that depicts a dog worrying about his bone....I just love it. Worry! Trouble! the theme music is excellent and the dog actor grabs my heart. I love it.

Do you have a favorite commercial from the past ?

There have been some....but they dont come to mind just now.

Oh my those games were years ago.....at work....when there was a memo I hadnt responded to or a job I hadnt completed. My life is much simplier now.

I wondered too, DBL-r. So...

An old custom brought to America by the early settlers became the holiday we now call Flitch Day. Once a year, a slab of bacon was given to any married couple who could prove they had lived in harmony and fidelity for the past twelve months.

Very few "took home the bacon".

Today's Question(s):

The "Sneak-A-Peak Fairy" is coming to your home
Where is the one place you hope she won't "sneak a peek" ? Well, if she's going to peek she'd better stay quiet about what she sees!

Bonus Question:

What is your favorite TV commercial that is running right now ? I don't watch much tv.


Extra Credit Question:

Who was the last person you tried to avoid ? I don't usually try to avoid anyone, but last summer when I came home from Maine I tried to avoid a whole crowd. I had walked the beach early that morning and then drove home. It was pouring rain & I looked like something the cat dragged in, as my dad would say. I stopped at school to feed McPhee, our pet rabbit. When I went to leave I saw all these people, dressed up, coming towards the building. I'd forgotten it was alumni day and our principal had people coming in to tour the building. It's a big building, so I snuck around to another door and out the back.


Anyone want a strawberry daiquiri?
