  1. LOL! I would never throw a football at you. I might tackle you but never the football thing. And for what it’s worth, I don’t like football either. I like your prank phone call comment…those were the stupidest things that we used to say, weren’t they?? And we thought they were so funny. Thanks for sharing…I learned a lot about you.

  2. These are always fun to read through!!!

    Can you send the recipe for the salmon puff thingies!! I have a recipe for crescent rolls. I will ask my sister if she ever uses whole wheat flour when she makes them. Its super easy to make.

    • I’ll send you the link to the salmon puff things. I think I linked to it in the post. Your sister makes whole wheat crescent rolls? Oh wait! I use to have an easy recipe for that. I’ll have to go look. Send me your sister’s recipe. 🙂

  3. The “hugged a homeless person” line cracked me up. I’ve never hugged a homeless person either, but I have been hugged by a homeless person. I don’t guess that counts. LOL

  4. I had fun reading your answers. I am going to pretend that you tagged me because I need something easy to post. LOL

  5. nice sweet pea on your custom header
