I really like these little survey's! You really do learn more about people this way! Thanks for playing along and sharing more about you! I know what you mean about the spiders....I would prefer for my hubby to kill them than myself!

Wow! Did I ever learn a lot about you my dear. Thanks for sharing. I envy the fact that you can tan. I just burn and peel. As for scars I don't want to even think about how many I have. I am a total accident waiting to happen.
