I shall now be going around, for the rest of the week, thinking of all the things I've forgotten.
Excellent list. Hmm, I shall have a go at compiling my own. Starting with... No.1: The pig in all its forms.ReplyDelete
Having just eaten a bacon sandwich, I'm already regretting that I didn't add that myself.Delete
Well you did include pork pies.Delete
My follow-up list will have to be Cro's Top 100. I've missed too much.Delete
Lady M knows about no 26, does she? ;-)ReplyDelete
I note hat while you rave about the wifes pies, your grandchildren home and village...at no point do you rave about your wife. How typically husbandy of you lol.ReplyDelete
Lady M is on a much higher level; it would be unfair to even think of classifying her!Delete
Do I get a reprieve?Delete
Good answer Cro. I mean about Lady M being on a much higher level.Delete
Oooh, you are smooth!Delete
it's a given that she ranks number one on the list -- goes without saying.Delete
You've made me think Cro. I'll see if I can name just 30.... It may take me a while to sort it out.ReplyDelete
HA! I noticed that, too, Delores.ReplyDelete
Cro, it seems that meat earns several mentions on your list. I guess that means you must be a member of PETA, like my hubby and me. That's People Eating Tasty Animals.
I have toyed with veggie-ism during my life, but I'm just having to accept that I'm a true carnivore, through and through!Delete
About half of those would be on my list! Chicken, meat, fresh eggs, etc! Good list Cro.ReplyDelete
Hooray for arising with no aches or pains. Makes the other 29 more enjoyable.ReplyDelete
A list you can be proud of...ReplyDelete
Smashing list....set me to wondering about one of my own......ReplyDelete
All lovely simple things Cro.ReplyDelete
By the way, I notice Patchouli on the list, were you a hippy in the past by any chance.
I love the smell of Patchouli it reminds me of my youth.
I would never have called myself a 'hippy', but people do occasionally now refer to me as an ageing one.Delete
goodness ...now you've gone and got us all thinking!!!...where shall I start?.....ReplyDelete
I am surprised that a pretty girl would allow you to kiss her, unless of course she was feeling sorry for you :)ReplyDelete
Or I took her by surprise!Delete
