D - Dog's name: I don't have one now but we used to have a black poodle, Buffy.
E - Essential start your day item: Brushing my teeth.
F - Favorite color: Red

Isn't it fun to learn all these essential facts about your fellow bloggers? I thought so. Thanks for playing along. I did too.
Are you sure you don't want to take your 60 year old Maytags to Florida with you?? No more laundromat!

I love that you sleep in, I hope the house sells soon and may every.single.chest.x-ray be free and clear of any complications.

I hope you have the most wonderful trip to Ireland. I will miss you.
