A longish Tag from Blue!

A quirky questionnaire!

We have been tagged by Blue with what she labeled “a quirky questionnaire!” As she explained it, the idea behind this questionnaire is to learn a few previously unknown facts about friends..She tagged me and muzzer! So we have set it up so my answers are first, and Muzzer’s answers come second.

Blue said...

Hi There!

Thank you both for doing my tag - so often they fall on dead ears..thought this one would especially, as it was sooo long...
Enjoyed your answers.
I'd love to meet you two, too.

It's strange I often feel closer to my blogger friends than to my actual contacts. Why, because I think we tell each other the truth, because we are protectected by anonymity.

Best wishes & lots of pats
Blue

Gussie and Gussie's Muzzer,

We have so many things in common. From liverwurst to NPR -- who knew? Mom's favorite sound, though, is the sound of JH or me snoring peacefully next to her. Once upon a time it was Dogdad's voice (before he was Dogdad). I guess we showed him!!!
