Comment: Diane, I did indeed love the glittery card, the extra goodies, and reading your remarks about St. Louis! I too am very proud of my hometown so I can relate. The emotional moment when you see the Arch is similar to what I feel when I drive past Lake Ontario on the way into my city. Thanks for sharing <3
Response: Thanks so much for the super rating! It means a lot to receive more than a thanks and I am glad you enjoyed the swap. ♥♥

Comment: Omigosh, look at that cutie! Such soulful eyes! After my first kitty died I thought I could never care for a pet again... and now there's Loki :-) It was his eyes that did it for me, after I saw him I was totally in love! Sometimes there's just someone out there for you... I'm so happy you found Bronson (good job, wife!). Thank you for sharing with me <3
Response: Thanks for the great rating. I was thinking I could babble all day about him and I really could've. I often think of the quote associated with pets "Who saved who?" and the answer in my situation was that I was definitely (and still am) saved by Bronson♥.

The PC arrived! It must have been on vacation, ha ha.

No, I don't watch Fear TWD...but some of my friends do and I've heard mixed emotions about it. My daughter won't watch it because she feels that would be cheating on Jeffery Dean Morgan! LOLOLOL

Benefit (?) of living in a rural county with a small population - you get picked for jury duty every couple of years. LOL. Last time I served, it was a felony trial involving drugs & weapons. It really is pretty cool if you enjoy legal proceedings (which I do).

LahDeeDah on May 23, 2018:

Hi Diane. Just read your post about your most recent diagnosis. Crap! Please know that I think of you often and care about the things you've been going through. I hope you feel better soon. (((hugs)))

HippieChick on May 15, 2018:
