A 10-story slide. WOW!! That's quite a ways up there. Seems like what were all holding on to is the same as last week. When the question was what we carry with us all of the time. :)

I don't even want to imagine what that slide was like!!! It's always fun to read these answers. Wishing you a wonderful day.

Scuba Girl said...

It's not funnel cakes for me - it's corndogs. And the 10 pounds is more like 20 - hey, we're telling the truth, right?

Karen said...

10 story slide?! Whoa~that sounds fun and frightening all that same time, by the way, I have found through much personal research that lemon shake-ups go great with funnel cakes~


PS thanks for the kind words of encouragement!
