re annoying questions -- my mother, when she still had at least some of her marbles, used to ask me every time if we were going to go dancing tonight. Since we have NEVER gone dancing in 53 years of marriage, this constant question was a real irritant!

I love the wearing cute underwear and comfortable socks! YES!
I like to buy all of my clothes at a real store, but a lot of other stuff I buy online...thing I do not need to try on. Loved your answers! Have a nice weekend!

I dream of taking a solo trip, but it wouldn't go over well with my hubby. I know he'd think something was wrong or I'd want to go with him. I just think it would be wonderful to go somewhere I chose and do or not do what I chose...no compromising, no doing things I don't like. I love him, but we are very different in our interests so vacations are a compromise for both of us...not bad, but just once....

So what IS your favorite potato chip? Inquiring minds want to know. I must be sure to have a bag with me when you finally make it down to Virginia and let me know you're here.

Oh my, I LOVE the soldiers reuniting with dogs videos. That's just how my dog acts every day when I get home, which is pretty damn awesome :)

I've never heard of "Alone" before, or seen it, but I'd win. I do that for fun. So what is your favorite potato chip?

Good answers.
