48 things about me...

Sandy...I enjoyed reading this and getting to know you more. As much as I love dogs, I ALSO have ZEEEEERO patience for barking dogs and owners who MUST be deaf because how can THEY stand it? I don't let my OWN dogs bark unless someone is trying to break in the house.

But I'm wondering what it was about my 30-Day post that put you into tears...? :( Can you email me? I'm worried!
