3. It's still daytime
here. At dusk, I'll hear them outside, and in my garage. I do hear the air conditioner. Does that count?

7. LOL!
Right you are!

And then, it would take at least two months for anything to move forward.

9. We laugh, but
isn't GA a wonderful example of consensus making in a large group? Someone told me it was impossible in a group of 12, and I told them about GA.

30. english and western saddles
A western saddle has a "horn" on the front of the saddle to allow a rope to be tied to it, an english saddle does not have the "horn"

12. I love Ben & Jerry's
ice cream. It tasted better when they still owned it. I loved eating something so yummy while supporting a business that was run in a manner consistent with progressive ideals. I'm not sure what the case is now. I like Cherry Garcia.

16. Rock band? Does it have to be a band?
I'm kinda dated. I like U2. Not sure who is current that I like. I like Grateful Dead. Willy Nelson. Tish Hinojosa. Elvis Presley. Paul Simon. Holly Near. Tina Turner. John Denver. Rockabilly stuff. Name some and I'll tell you if I know or like them.

Yes, I do like to share, in general.

However, these particular carrots belong to my dog, and he does not like to share.

she'd be my first mate. Imagine my chagrin when she turned out to be someone else's mate. So I'm just kinda in a holding pattern waiting for her to come back to me. Or Jennifer Connelly. Or....wait, let me get my list......

42. Is that the same as
lapins? IF it is, I prefer mine intact, although a ligation of the pipeline from production to use could be an appealing although unnecessary fringe benefit in this instance.

48. I do not believe, Benevolent_Rabbit,
that you are sorry. I meant the person. Boogers are neither appealing nor tasty except when one is quite young. (Ah, those were the days.)

Good old booger eating days. I had a playmate who tried to convince me they were the best yet, and I think he believed it. Must have been 5 or 6 maybe.

I do appreciate and have thoroughly enjoyed the attention which picked up each time I thought it might be waning. Your question is an especially good one, and I will give it great consideration. BTW, I was very pleased to note (I think I knew and forgot) that you will be a teacher. I can see you with junior high kids. :hi:
