Wow, Mary, I wish we could get together for coffee. (I drink mine with cream at all hours of the day; for me, coffee is a vehicle for cream.) This is a geat list. You got me with the stripper thing, but I was waiting for an explanation that involved paint stripping.

I like your list, Mary ... we should meet one day for coffee, or something ... you know, like we've been talking about for a couple of years (and kids) now.
