I like the Barry Manilow answer and the video was great. Ooo the Jetsons would be a great place to live. But 18 is the bomb. Very clever. Good answers. Have a great rest of the weekend :)

I'm glad that at least you were the head of the donkey! And once again, I love how much you care about your girlfriend. That always makes me smile when I visit here.

I love The Giving Tree. I also agree with you on the Jetson's house.

Have a great day!

Indiana was a perfect choice!

The Jetsons! Brilliant answer. I loved the Jetsons. Astro was my favorite, especially when he would say "I Rove You Rorge"
