    Seems we have a fair amount of things in common. I personally like the excuse for coffee, I’ve not used that one yet.

  • LOL… I have to explain my energy sometimes… so I blame it on the coffee!

    Of course your second name would be Colleen……I knew there was an Irish Lass in there somewhere :o) I love it….and yes….dogs do class as human…..well in my book they do :o) Wonderful answers……who on earth mentioned Sonic….and does anyone know what it is!!!!!!

  • Sal!! Apparently, when I was born, the doctor said I looked like a ‘bonny Colleen’. And my grandpa always claimed to be Irish. Well, he could tell great stories and his name was Patrick! :-)
    My doggy is so human I have a hard time trying to explain to him that humans cannot wag their tails!
