Wednesday Anniversary CHATTER!

Recommended Posts

Today’s Chatter topic is about things you’ve done. You might have seen posts on Facebook or other social media where you put an asterisk next to the item you’ve done, states you’ve visited, food you like, etc.  Today we are going to play our own version of this game.   

Please copy and paste the list below into a comment box and put an asterick -  “*” - in front of each one that you’ve done or can relate to.  If you’d like to leave a comment or elaborate more, we’d love to hear about it.

All comments posted by Midnight EST Friday, October 18, 2019 will be entered into a random drawing for a $3 ScrapGirl Gift Certificate!

Actually it was sad. Three strikes and out case and a very young man was facing a very long time in prison. He had a girlfriend who was heavily pregnant testifying. Life was going to be tough for all involved. Trial went on for 3 days and jury was deliberating when suddenly we were dismissed. Settlement was reached between prosecutors and defendant, but we jurors were left completely in the dark as to the circumstances.

*18. Stayed awake for 24 hours - I just did this last week with my darling hubby to clear the house for the carpet cleaners in preparation for a wedding shower for my niece. It was tiring, but we ended up with a less clutter house!
*19. Was a guest of honor at a surprise party - Yes, and Debby, I'm with you. I didn't like it. I arrived very late to my own baby shower and was embarrassed to have imposed on so many women.
*20. Read a book in a day - I am a big reader, so I have done this many times.
