  1. I got a Beatle tune for hug too, but not this one. :)

    Good list here!

  2. I could not think of anything for "hug"!

    What a great list.
    I did not come up with any Beatles songs this week but you are sure clever!


Sorry about adding Comment Moderation, folks. But look at the bright side, at least I've gotten rid of word verification!
