  1. Thanks MUD! I had fun reading your answers. It was especially interesting to see that both of us have the same problem with jeans!

  2. Bones is our favorite show! Well, it's the only show not on Disney channel that we watch...and you didn't list the Kirkland's aas one of your favorite places to eat. Keith will be crushed;)

  3. Hey MUD, I saw that Jenni tagged you on her blog. And, I saw that it didn't take you several days to come up with answers like it did Jenni.

    "4. Seeing how big the checking account balance will get before Barb notices." ...bwahahahahahaha! All the answers are good, but that one really tickled me.

    Are you sure we're not married to the same woman???
