WELL, WHAT CAN I SAY AFTER ALL OF THOSE DESCRIPTIONS OF THIS 80 YEAR OLD WOMAN? YOU MIGHT THINK THAT I WOULD BE WORN OUT, BUT I'M STILL "CUTTING THE RUG" A LITTLE BIT WHEN MY MUSIC PLAYING GRANDCHILDREN ARE AROUND. THANKS! I DO SAY "THANKS" INSTEAD OF "OKAY"....IT STILL MAKES SENSE TO ME, GABE, EVEN THOUGH I DIDN'T KNOW THAT ABOUT MYSELF.
I LOVE ALL YOU GUYS AND GIRLS.
