"Okay, I got one. Would you rather live every day for the rest of your life with stinky breath, or lick the sidewalk for five minutes?" Noodle asked. He turned and looked at me with a huge grin on his face because he knew this was a tough one.

    1. You can choose location 56% on your Kindle, but are always welcome to improvise from 5% or 6%. Also to see approximately which page you are on, when reading in Kindle press the menu button. It brings up a highlight of how far you are. Just press back to make it disappear again. I hope this helped and hope to see you join in!

  20. I'm still busting a gut from the crocheted 'gun-cozy'.

    For myself, I'd choose the life-long stinky breath. You can always use mouthwash. But there's nothing that will make what's on the sidewalk any better.
