That is a very involved tag, but I sure did learn a lot about you Lin..

Linda Reeder said...

Thanks, Lin. I'll have to think about this one. It is indeed very revealing!

Carla said...

Okay, I'll try. But I lead such a simple, dull life...there's no way I can come up with 8 things in each category. :-)

Your things are very interesting!
