  1. I like many of your answers better than mine. Jo March was a MUCH better answer than my lame choice, which was only because I couldn't think of anything else. And isn't "This is Us" wonderful??? So glad I decided to watch it. That Episode 1 ending was a real surprise!

  2. I'm wondering if there's a statistic somewhere in the fact that a lot of us don't have warm fuzzy feelings about our childhoods?
    It's good that you left the loophole in going back to check out cowboys. I have a feeling that in reality they were probably kind of gross...much like pirates.

  3. Go Cubs!

    Most excellent answers. I should have thought of Jo, too. Oh well. You got the blue ribbon for that one.

  4. Have you read Lonesome Dove? It's massive, but a great book and (I think) portrays cowboys a little more realistically than Hollywood. It wasn't a great job.

    Sorry! is still a fun game. I always liked sliding. ;-)

  5. This Is Us is great entertainment. I'm surprised at how much I like Mandy Moore.


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