kenju said...

Ah, tags. I will try to do it justice, though it may take me a few days. I'll let you know when it is up.

Cathy said...

Great List!
I will get to it...really I will :)

Kath said...

Aw, I don't mind being tagged! Gives me a chance to think about things :o) I'll do it this week!

kenju said...

Pat, I discovered that I had already done a form of this and I have posted the link to it just now. Go and look?

Guyana-Gyal said...

What is the Coleridge Way?

Would you really go to the Himayalays if you had the chance? To me that sounds scary. I dunno why.

I have a feeling your grands are already proud of you.

I did this tag, here it is :-)

R. Sherman said...

Thanks for playing. I pop in every day. For better or worse, you make an appearance in my post tomorrow.


R. Sherman said...

Thanks for playing along. I pop in every day, even if I don't comment. Keep up the good work.


P.S. You make an appearance in my next entry

Stop it with the tag thing. They're just chain letters for nerds.

You'd be grumpy if you'd watched the rugby.

PI said...

kenju: Thanks anyway.

cathy: That's sweet of you. I could do with your hat.

kath: Thanks kath, I'll look forward to it.

GG: The Coleridge Way is a new way-marked walk which goes from Nether Stowey to Porlock and was a walk frequented by the poets Coleridge and the Wordsworths. It's 36 miles and it's posssible to do it in bite sized chunks with nice inns en route.
To just see the Himalayas would give me joy.
Sorry about the tag.

Randall: Do keep popping in. Read your post and am glad to be a goody.

andrewm: I'm a new girl. I do as I'm told. What rugby?

Caroline said...

I'll take you tag, maybe post it tomorrow (I've been busy elsewhere for the last few days... and have some catching up still to do) - fun to read your answers!

PI said...

Thank you Caroline - that's sweet of you.

kenju said...

Pi, did you go and look at mine? I posted it last Sunday.

PI said...

kenju: Yes I enjoyed reading it. We have some things in common apart from the flowers which I love but can only stick in a jar and hope for the best.
Try to make Greece - I often think it's my spiritual home.
The young Al Pacino was great but I wouldn't kick him out even now.
