Number 42 is what I love about the beach, too. And pink? Really? Hm. Well, I learned something new about you today. I'll have to see if I can get my gram to send me a pair of pink slippers to send your way...

hm-uk said...

Aw thanks, tewkesy. No worries, though. I'd hate to make more work for your gran...

I like pink. When I was renting in Boston, my room was painted pink. I had such high hopes of painting it out, but I really started to dig it after a while. There's something zen about a pink room.

Tee hee...I like yours. :-)

I like pink too...I just like red more. I'm a Leo, sue me.

I don't think I've ever been to Oklahoma, now you mention it.

I liked #42 also, I just like the sound of waves, especially when it is stormy.

hey Wry,
I didn't know you were a Leo - have you answered that in any of your meme's? As for Oklahoma, well I'm slowly, slowly beginning to appreciate it a bit more than I have, in times past.

hi beat dad,
One of my favourite things to do is to walk out on the jetty at the local marina (it's a great concrete monstrosity) and watch the waves break against the constructed boulders during a blustery day.
