    a few days about my
    "8 Things"! I love getting to know the new bloggers...

    I have only blogged for 2 months and am still a little overwhelmed...I expected 10 comments in six months....As you can see,it happened a little faster than that...

    So I am having to get up to speed on things I have no idea how to do...

    I hope you get to Tampa Bay so we can get together. I'll drive there from Orlando.

    I'll have to post the 8 things on my blog.

    Love ya.

  15. Hi Debbie, I finally got around to doing the 8 Things tag. I intended to do it sooner, but actually I forgot about it until I saw your comment in my e-mail again. I had saved it to remind me to do the 8 Things. Maybe I'm getting old. lol


I love to read your comments! I know you have something to share so join in the conversation. And thank you for taking the time.
