    Nick – I think we both know a few people that come into the Egotist category.

    WWW – I actually wondered why I had kept it so long without sharing.

    It is 5:40am on a Thursday morn; it’s dark and nothing stirs but … my laughter. Your list is great, GM. The first one is my favorite, it’s so true.

    Glad to know that you are on the mend.
    Blessings ~ Maxi

    Maxi – It is Friday Noon here, and I am way behind with commenting. The past few days have been busy. I am so pleased I brought some laughter to you…. even if it was at 5:40am! Keep making progress.
