  1. Had a good read and as per usual…loved it. I am going to look for those books and read them. I shared some of your comments with my sister and we were both laughing together out loud over the phone just a while ago. The toe-nail and white berry comments especially sent us into fits. Such a pleasure getting to know more about you Nikki.
