Elwood and Lenny! LOVE that.

Such a delightful list...and it seems we have quite a bit in common.

This was very interesting.
I love that you write and mail a letter or note 3 times a week.

To Kill a Mockingbird, is one of the first translated books to arabic that I read. I was quiet young... but sure I learned alot from the book.

Very nice list...

Interesting. A buffalo skull?

Our sons middle name is Elwood...named after a Great-Grandfather who informed us when our son was born that nobody ever named a boy after him...they thought his name was odd.

So we did. Kind of.

I write a ton of snail mail letters and cards, too! Nothing like getting mail.

MEOW INDEED!
Hey lady, great post. Love these little quizzes --they are fun to read and a great snapshot on a much larger/abstract image. I'm bookmarking as a potential future post on my blog down the road. Was also thinking about trying some creative projects inspired by old movies and it sounds like you are already there. If only Jimmy Stewart lived to see his likeness done up in egg :)

Anyhoot...Just saw the lovely comment you made on my blog and had to pop over to see what you are up to. Sure glad I stopped by. I'll be back again soon!
