      1. Lol… a big head or anything eh? No worries about that. I’m not like that (I don’t think I am anyway) but I hope you can ignore my imperfections ๐Ÿ˜‰


  4. Saw your name on Arcane Owl’s page and decided to take a gander. Since you love pens, thought you might like to know Hobby Lobby has these nifty pens that are called the “No” pens. They have a button you push and a recording of someone saying “No” is heard. They have several recordings of “No” variations. They are pretty cool. Thanks for letting me visit. ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. Aw, thanks!

    We have 5 out of 7 in common. Sorry – I was indoctrinated to Apple early as my dad was the local chapter president of the Apple Computer Club when I was growing up. Hooked early.
