    Jeanne, it was fun reading your list. Sweet--you've loved your DH such a long time, and you also love his mother! Shocking--you almost lost your finger--thank God they could reattach it! Intriguing--you'd like to be a psychiatrist--I agree that that would be a fascinating job. Funny--you really dislike camping. ME, TOO! Why do people want to sleep outside?!

    Loved reading about you, Jeanne, as well as about the others who shared. While I enjoyed reading them all, I probably will not remember much of any! I love that your teen crush was your husband and that you two are such an item, still! emoticon

    I am so much older than anyone else here! I had to laugh at my own answer (in my head) that when I was 12 years old (not quite a teenager) I was walking alone on the campus of a new-to-me junior high school.(don't know why or where everyone else was; it was a LONG time ago) I heard a recording of Eddie Fisher singing. I followed his voice to an empty building (gym?) where there were only a few people and sat down until the record ended. His voice did something to me I had never felt before! After that I listened to him sing every chance I got! His life was such a disappointment! So sad! So many people in the world have shallow priorities ... and they pay for their choices dearly! Still, his voice ...!!!
