Love the title of your blog, the cat is adorable, and you got a great year for 50s songs. I know because I was 10 and just starting to dance to them.

Thanks for doing the meme.

Better late than never, right? And you could have just saved this for your birthday and done it then as it isn't that far off!

I decided I didn't like my age in minutes - it sounds so much older than years!!

Blue topaz is one of my very favorite stones - they are so much prettier than the yellow ones! IMHO, of course!
