I chuckled as I recalled the joke about pens: NASA spent millions of dollars to develop one that would write upside down in zero gravity. The Russians used pencils.



I read that, too. But the pens are just the cat’s a– meow!

Here I am! My list with explanations, as usual (why just list it when I can say so much more and really kill my audience – blah, blah, blah!), ha, ha!

In some items, simplicity was good; in some the detail was great. I was surprised at how many items we have had and/or used on that list. It was surprising.

Enjoy and happy Sunday!


My list is up, here: wasn’t easy to limit to just 7; I found about 20! 😛
