  2. Thanks, Doug. You are very kind.

  3. Sorry goron…I don’t do tags…I’ve got several funny posts about that…Last one was sometime in January…LOL

    Just two questions…pay SOME bills…~gulp~..how many ya’ got?

    And..I think if you wish to remain happily married, your wife better get more than dinner out of the deal…LOL

  4. Hi Bonnie, to answer your questions, I have more bills than I want. And I would probably let my wife go shopping after dinner.

  5. I enjoyed reading this post…Thank you.


  6. what wonderful and exciting things, in just 10 years. thanks for sharing and letting us get to know you a little better.

    well, as far as taking your wife out to dinner…even tho you haven’t received your million yet, valentines day would be a wonderful time to take her out and treat her special. ok! you don’t have to let her go shopping afterward but…..lol

    have a wonderful and blessed day!

  7. Looks like I didn’t make the top 5..whew! LOL It seems the sisters in your reading audience are in agreement…”Take your wife out to dinner, whether or not you have that million dollars!”

  8. hey, thanks for playing along! where exactly did you vacation in chattanooga, tn? i do agree, the smoky mountains are such a peaceful place to be – especially when the waters of life seem to be a little rough!

  9. Thanks all for your comments. I will definitely take Amy out to eat.

    When we went to Chattanooga, we had a great time at the aquarium, discovery center, Rock City, Chickamauga battlefield and several other places.

  10. Lost is the only show I watch.

  11. Oops, I spelled your name wrong Gordon…that’s what I get for not spellchecking…You’re digging yourself in deeper….PROBABLY LET… her go shopping!!! Yikes…I hope you have a fun Valentines!

  12. Julianne–glad you stopped by.

    Bonnie–it would depend on how much supper cost.

  13. One of the nice things about tags is you have an opportunity to learn a bit about a person – things you might never ask, or would never come up in a post.

    I like the blog Gordon – I will be back (Lord willing). ;-D

  14. Daniel, thanks for stopping by. I’ve been enjoying your blog as well. You are quite a thinker!
