First post of '07 - thanks Groovygrrl!

ABCs of Me(me)
(note - this picture of Jim Henson's statue was taken by D's mom on the University of Maryland campus in College Park. One of my favorite things in the whole wide world are Muppets (except those damned Fraggles - yuck), so I figure this is better than looking at a picture of my ugly mug.)
