  1. Thank you!! I appreciate it!!

  2. What a fun list of facts!
    Being a counselor in a prison must have been a challenging job! I worked as a social worker in a group home for adolescent boys, and that was rough...I don't think I would have wanted to work in a prison.
    My daughter Jenna's favorite animal is the rabbit, and I have always admired giraffes. I watched a PBS documentary one time about them, and have been amazed by them ever since :)

  3. I love Watership Down as well. I read it a lot in junior high.

    It must have been interesting to be a prison counselor.

  4. THANKS!!! That is so awesome! Your blog is the most inspiring ever! So many ideas!

  5. Wow--thanks for the award! I'm very honored!

    I loved Watership Down, too! I should re-read it, because it's been a looooong time. And I probably read it when I was too young to really understand everything.

    I remember being fascinated with the glossary at the end, and just bawling during the sad parts! Definitely one of my all-time favorites, too!

    Confession: I've always been a little scared of rabbits. My roommate in college had a pet rabbit and it wasn't friendly. I know rabbits can be great pets, but I've always been wary of them. Silly, huh?

    Being a prison counselor must have been interesting, and probably tough, too. I'm sure you heard lots of sad and scary stories.

    Thanks again for mentioning me! :)

    Hi! Thank you very much for the award! You know, reading Watership Down has been on my list of things to do for like the past 10 years or so... thanks for the jumpstart - I just downloaded it on my kindle!
    Thanks again.

  7. Wow - what a neat insight into your life...I find even more about you to admire and find interesting...theater? I don't think I would have guessed. Prison counseling must be interesting - I bet you had many things to think about as you learned about people who had made poor life decisions.

    I used to be a bill collector in one of my previous incarnations...


Thank you so much for taking the time to comment. It means so much.
