4 places I'd rather be:
-Almost anywhere that there are mountains
-in a hammock
-at a hot spring
-in my canoe

4 bloggers I'm tagging:I’ve never forwarded a chain letters, nor tagged a blogger, which explains why I am balding and am not rich and famous. So if you’d like to be tagged, go to it! Otherwise, I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit about me through my wise-crack responses.


  1. The Red Green Show! They never broadcast that in this area, but my husband and I saw it a few times when we vacationed (in a motel room, not a tent, which is rare for us). After the first time we saw it we always made a point of looking for it when we traveled north. Funny show. I love that kind of stupid humor. Did he move on to Prairie Home Companion?

  2. Great list! I also adore tomato sandwhiches, and would almost always rather be in a canoe than where I am at that moment..

  3. loved learning more about you! Long time since I've seen Hill Street Blues mentioned anywhere--it was classic

  4. I was Hill Street Blues fan too..along with St. Elsewhere. Classic ensemble acting!

  5. hi! here from micheles! Are a spy? is that why you dont talk about your job?

    :) have great weekend!

  6. I'd like to also be in a hot spring especially after a very hectic week at work.

    Cheers from Michele.

  7. Laurie, I don't see the Red Green show very often--when I lived in the West it came on every saturday at 7 AM and 10 PM. Sounds like its time for a Hill Street Blues rerun! Shannon, Think of me as the greasy undercover detective on Hill Street Blues. And Viamarie, I wish there were hotsprings in this part of the country. Next to the mountains and the desert, I miss hot springs the most.

  8. But it is a good way to get to know each other.

    I recently saw The Red Green Show for the first time. I think he's putting on that voice.
