I always did like things that John Lennon said although saying you are more popular than Jesus wasn't so smart.
I love this figure with a little head and a bigger body...I am experimenting with this and offer this as a challenge for fun to YOU!
BOYFRIEND BARS-YUMMY THIS TIME OF YEAR!

For those wondering my husband is doing OK and still have his catheter he is carrying around...a nuisance. He did have it in a grocery bag and my daughter in law kidded him so he took a bag I got from a shop in Hawaii that has a piunk bow on it...I am not sure which is better for a man....He is eating now and had his favorite "Frosted Flakes" which I normally never buy. We go to the Dr. tomorrow to get the cathetar out and back to the other Dr. next week to find out if the cancer spread. We are expecting good news...always. Thank you to so many of you who prayed for us...we felt it!
