Thanks for sharing. I keep reading these, but somehow I haven't been inspired to write one. Maybe someday...

I remember the turquoise '72 Nova; when I was in middle school the high school quarterback drove one. I thought he was a hottie so naturally the Nova was instantly hot with me also.

I'm so glad you did this, Becca! It's fun getting to know little details about each other.

By sharing I now know about you. I enjoyed your haiku in a previous post! I am just beginning to compose but have not the nerve to post yet.

I loved getting to know Becca better. We watch Resue Me too :)
