I didn't know you knew Chatty! I've been reading her for years. One of these days I'm going to have to do this meme. It takes a lot of thought and I'm more of a "spew it out" blogger. Hope you're mending well and not going too stir crazy!

I loved this, Carol. It was delightful getting to know you better. None of these were huge surprises, though. ;-)

That was meant as a compliment, btw.
