My Mary made mention in her comments yesterday about writing a poem for her and it made me laugh. I used to have this thing on my first Sobriety is Exhausting blog that stated I would write a poem for anyone who gave me an award. They were good poems too.....like "thank you Mary, your legs are never hairy." Good stuff like that.
OK.....here is my list - LOL it's 39 things-the re-run.
