My Husband "Subvet" says that when our first son "Sonshine" was born the sun rose on our world, when our second son "Gator" was born the sun laughed and when our daughter "Sugars" was born all the flowers bloomed. That says it all.

Peruke - believe it or not, I know this one from having read way too many period romances - it's another word for a man's wig like the ones that they wore during the time of Louis the XIV.

Linda and I both won? Once in each category?!? Yee haw! That's a personal best for me. ;o)

Sorry your knee is giving you grief. I surely know about that!

I love "American Pie" and I've seen and/or read all that information before. I loved Gary Bucey in "The Buddy Holly Story".

That battle video is awesome. Here we sit safe in our homes while our soldiers deal with that and worse every day. I try to show my appreciation whenever I meet a soldier.

I've had word verification enabled for a long time now because of spam. So far so good. I hope they don't figure out how to get around the word verification...

Hope your week is a good one, S.

Love and hugs,

Diane

Pretty cool that Diane and I are both double winners and that we each choose the opposite word for silly and serious!

Hope your knee is better soon and that the brace helps.

Sorry I missed this one--but I didn't know either of them anyway!

Sheesh, I used to think I had a pretty decent vocabulary. Not so much, now.
