Nickname – I have several but KC is the one I use here.

    I never make it myself, because there is so much work involved. (You´ll see…)
    But those brownies you mentioned sound good. How ´bout a recipe?? :)

  2. I agree: YES! to the cotton underwear. Hoping the house sells this week!

  3. wow, you’re tall! I used to be 5’5″, but after spinal surgery I’m now 5’3.5″! Mind if I play along?

  4. We have Pandas in San Diego. Just sayin’.

  5. Cotton underwear — cotton everything! I’m a natural fibers girl.
