Hey what about Vermont friends?!?!?!?!?!?! Also a very big cheese/dairy state...

Sorry you were crying. Hope you're doing ok. :-(

Sarah C. said...

Fun reading your responses, Janet! My CR-V is red. :) And, now, big ((HUGS)). Hope the cry was one of those that you just needed to get out and all is ok.

Janet said...

Jill-Good point about Vermont! lol And California, too, I guess, since that is where the Happy Cows live!! I just happen to have a couple of good friends from Wisconsin who read my blog so I had to put that cheddar cheese thing in there for them! lol

Sarah-Don't you love your CR-V? You know, I didn't even realize that there's is a fold-out table in the back! (DD discovered that reading the owner's manual!)

Jill & Sarah-Thx for the hugs. I'm ok...I just have times when I really miss my mom. :-(

You guys help a LOT. Thx for stopping by!
