    1. You can count three. You're scrupulously honest and if you say you would have known it, then you knew it!

  15. Gosh Elizabeth!

    Yay, I know the bonus question! And when she rode naked, side-saddle, folks were yelling, "hooray for our side!"

    I shall now go do the same thing to see if I can lower my taxes, or something like that.

    Gary :)
