Crazy 8 Divided by 2 Meme

Got tagged by Patti some time ago with this one. I'm just getting around to it....
Quoting from Patti (Late Bloomerboomer) who was quoting from Linda:
The "Crazy 8's" meme is from Debbie Dolphin of New England Lighthouse Treasures. Linda decided to make it the "Crazy 8's Divided by Two" meme. Sounds good to me.
Claudia, Out on a Limb also tagged me with this one a while ago. So here we go:

Great quote, btw....;-)

Patti, Of course I didn't forget...I actually wrote this when you tagged me but it got lost in the shuffle.

Cas, I love Shrek...both of them!!!

Real, we should all do it!

Claudia, thank you, thank you very, red, and yes convertible...possibly vintage but I like the 911 series...

Teach, should do it too!

jeff, hmmmmm....we all know you have one of them..hehe.

buffalo, ahahahahaha!!! gotcha!!!

Matt, it's just the Crazy 8 meme, list 8 things in each category and someone divided it by 2, so we only had to list 4 things, thereby shortening the lists....k?

I too finally learned that 'it's just not that important.' I just wished my boss felt the same way.

I love the Happy Feet music!
