    great answers!

    And, I wanted to say that I really enjoyed the “judge’s lessons” this week. I can always use little pointers. We must always be willing to learn and grow and these offer perfect little points to ponder.

    “6 pens (just in case five run out of ink?)”

    As if we needed a reason to have that many pens…
    Love it!

    Julian Fellowes must be a genius because… “Downton Abbey” is charming.

    Sad to say… I have zero pens in my purse. And I needed one yesterday. Thoroughly irritating because there’s nothing worse than having to ask a stranger for a pen. Well, there are worse things… but you know what I mean.

    I need to give you a dash of my optimism, my friend! Half-full, Half-full, Half-full!!!!!

    Whew, finally got this done! I linked to you Kaye, and also there were many of your answers that were my answers, which made responding difficult, and one question I just left yours, but stated they had been your answers too. Thanks for a fun break from thinking about WIP, and for your helpful advice.
