Funnily enough 26 was the one that I picked up on too.

Not related to 13 by any chance?

And number 1 should be restaurant owner & raconteur :)

Cream I THINK this is my favorite of these colorful wonders.

Thanks, Akelamalu. I think it was happiness about making the right choice...

Actually, Goth you are right! The passing of a pet...
I will have to amend No.1 to well-fed up restaurant owner...

Thanks, Mary. This is one of the first ones I have done.

Was Blood Diamond good?

I thought steak, not fish, was your favourite!

Oh, if I read you right I've had to make that choice and it's not easy I know m'dear. ((hug)) You did the right thing.

Gigi, yes I liked it. Our Leonardo was great in it... Yes, I do love steak but fish is my favourite food. Any kind at all.

Thanks, Akelamalu... We come to crossroads every minute of our day. We make choices and have to live by them whatever the outcome.
