I think it would be more fun with more people playing.Delete

Time is whizzing by!Delete

You played Chinese Whispers with Yoko Ono? Wow!Delete
Sounds like your Christmas Day was great, just as you wished it would be.ReplyDelete
Looking forward to a Happy New Year.
It was nice being together.Delete
That looks like fun! I did not know the meaning of stealing someone's thunder; I've learnt something new!ReplyDelete
