Hmmm traveling circus. Guess I better juggle my schedule and stop clowning around so I can try to hit the big time with my entry.

  2. Love the information...love the word plays. You are tops. Big tops. (Okay, in my defense, I fell on the ice and can't think of anything better. I don't know how that relates since I only hurt my leg, but it's all I've got.)

  3. Hi Terri,
    You're welcome.

    Hi Tammy,
    I tried to work the "big top" into my post but couldn't pull it off the way you did. Hope you are feeling better. The ice is dangerous.
