You're right, for the good of the blog I should have chosen George... however, I'm not sure that's a good enough reason to choose him... and the one who I would choose knows who he is. ;)

And Dave indeed, Dark Chocolate and Almonds = yumminess!

I'd like to think that if I ate the shrooms it would be like Alice in Wonderland... well minus a few things.

Yes, Dave, #20 is definitely you. I need someone to keep me supplied with candy cane beets and pears! :)

Barbara said...

Ah Dave you are a funny man... still does not get you # 20 in my book though... but no one asked me. :-)

Trish :) said...

Thanks for sharing, Michelle. Nice choices - I've been to all three places. I'd have to choose "Nederland" however, but I guess I'm biased.

By the way, a soft, truffle chocolate with either espresso-strength black coffee or a nice smooth merlot can't be beat.

I asked you who 20 was Mich!!!!


Jenuine said...

Okay Barb, I'm asking....(?)

~agree with you on the 2+13
~No, didn't get permission, but I linked her pic to her web-site (does that count?)
~proud of you for not marrying a stripper - hahahaha!
~18+20 - how male of you.

Glad you enjoyed!
