Hey Linda . . I'm so impressed, especially with the first quote 'cos I'm always saying that. In fact, I like that one so much I may nick, snag, share, that one!

Have a great week end Linda.

Hey, Gloria,
Anytime you want to borrow, snag, nik, or whatever, from my blog, go right ahead. I'm not near as prolific with my own words as you and so many other bloggers, so I copy and paste. I hope what I do is a blessing, and gives a chuckle to others.

Have a good weekend. Do they celebrate 'Labor Day' in Spain?

Yes, they have Día del Trabajador on May 1st. Am I right that you're celebrating Labor day in America right now?

Have a good one!
