Yep! You sure DID make me look up lepidoptera! I'm sure that's going to come in VERY handy at some unforseen point in my life down the road! Therefore, I'm thankful to you! :) And no... I won't share my million if it happens to win me it! (cuz after all... it will be MY job to REMEMBER it!) ;)

Happy Turkey Day!!!

Okay, two questions:

1) why is Caryl before me?

2) what is number 35 ??? it isn't in the dictionary and I haven't a clue.

i was missing my family today. so many days, like the holidays i miss them so much. in thinking of all the things that i have to be grateful for, i realize how less lonely i am now. i have a huge amount of friends, no less important because of how i met them or through what medium. i have learned that we all have a journey and sometimes they meet up. i'm so happy that my journey met yours. my heart is full, full of loved ones by blood and by choice. thank you for meeting up with me and bring with you so many wonderful others.

Happy Thanksgiving my friend.
