hahahahahhhaa, this is wonderfull... and interesting.. but no time at the moment to do it myself... but will go back this weekend...


(wish I could see Paul's also.... )

Paul said...

Cassie, wow really interesting, thank you. I would imagine that NÂș 92 hurt.
Huge fraternal hugs and love,

CeeCi said...

Your list is wonderful.... somehow, I'm not surprised by #141!

Let me know when you'd like me to take down the party decorations.

ciao bella!

PK said...

Cassie these are great! I bet if Tom had found you just after you had bungie jumped you would have has another public spanking!!

So glad you are back!


Cassie said...

Lessa! I am looking forward to getting to know you better!

At the time I was more angry than hurt. But over the years Tom has convinced me that our lack of realtionship was their loss not mine. I have every confidence that the next time we are 'together' we will all get along fine!

C.C they are so beautiful! What a wonderful surprise. I think I will leave them up a few days and then I will be in touch. Thank you again for going to such trouble.

LOL! PK you just might be right about that. But it would have been so much fun!

Love to you all,

Wow you ahve had a full life, 72! You are close to Paul at 92!
