Karen (KayKay) said...

I love the ABC's idea. I will try to pop back in and post mine. Or maybe I will do this on my blog - if you don't mind me copying! Enjoyed getting to know more about you.

Barbara said...

Leslie- Consider doing this on your blog and link back to me for 5 entries into the drawing.

Kathryn Magendie said...

Okay, finally I'm going to ask what is probably a STOOPID question - but what is a meme!

Barbara said...

Donna- thanks for playing!!

Barbara said...

Angie- Thanks!

Barbara said...

Janna- I hope you add it to your blog and link back to me for the 5 extra chances in the drawing.

Barbara said...

Karen- Post this on your blog and link back to mine for 5 chances on my giveaway.

Barbara said...

Kathryn- Good luck with finding an answer. Isn't that what they call these little blog games?

Barbara said...

Kathryn- I Googled meme and found this definition:
"A blog meme is a type of Internet meme that requires active participation by the blogger and rarely traces back to an originating source. It's often a series of questions that a blogger answers to share some personal perspective or experience on random topics."

Lea and her Mustangs said...

My quote - that was bothering me that I could not remember it - "There is something about the outside of a horse that is good for the inside of a woman"

Barbara said...

Lea- That's a great and true (from what I hear) quote!!

Leslie said...

Check my blog later for my meme's. Hugs~~~~Leslie
