    A very positive way at looking at wrinkles, Carolyn! Bring 'em on! I'm proud to have smiley wrinkles :) -- very nice topic for your than bauk--so hmm no frowns allowed! why the frown? To be honest? I have never made that sweet potato dish as we don't have Thanksgiving here...but yup wouldn't that be cool, a Soup convention where we really cook soup?? haha! hugs :D

    Precious wrinkles. Wishing you the best in the contest Carolyn. You have years before you get them. Thank you for all your kind comments my dear friend. Love, Carol

    :-) You GO, girl! My once smooth forehead looks like the Grand Canyon now. Ah, well. At least my laugh lines are EVEN deeper. Thanks for the kindness sent my way, Dear. I always appreciate your words. Monkey-girl is doing so much better. Hospital visit was horrible. They did a TERRIBLE job putting in the catheter, told me it would be an in/out thing.Over 3 minutes of her screaming in agony. All this for freaking amoxcylin (spelling)??? Sorry, should have soup mailed this! Hope this wins! Cyndi
