LOL, I've seen this before and it always surprises me that I don't have any trouble reading it.

It is amazing how flexible our brains are to allow us to read this. It is also amazing how forgiving you all are when I don't have time to write a proper blog.

I'm laughing! When I read this on Wednesday I had no trouble at all reading it. In fact, it took a few moments before I realized anything was "wrong" with it. Now isn't that scary? :)

Kathy, this is a great post! You've given us something to think about, and entertained us, too.

BTW, my hubby didn't have a clue. Guess his mind isn't strange. Just mine, LOL.

Have a great day!
