"the nicest and the sweetest days are not those on which anything very splendid or wonderful or exciting happens, but just those that bring simple pleasure, following one another softly, like pearls slipping off a string."

Who are you...who, who...who, who...

...it's Springtime and everything is budding and blooming, so I was thinking this would be a good time for a give-away. Are you game?

I saw this on another blog a few weeks ago and had the best time reading the answers.  After getting the o.k. and tweaking it just a bit to make it my own I thought I would see "who" y'all are.  I mean really, how well do you know yourself and how easy would it be to describe that to someone else?

First things first though.  There will be a lovely give-away but at this point in time I can't say what that will be, it all depends on who wins.  Contest is open until May 1st at 7pm at which time my personal number generator will choose a random winner.  You do not have to be a follower but if you'd like to add your name to the list that would be welcome.  There are no other rules...that's right...none.  Here we go:

O.K., there is a rule:  you MUST follow my lead and give your answers as in my example but using your own imagination.
