Ok, the tornado is still on hold in my area so I have the opportunity to enjoy another grand response to ‘Getting to Know You’! Congratulations on your new job Lori! What a deserving opportunity for you! Fantastic description on what you’re listening to, “grinding of my brain gears” – lol. OMGosh, that monkey in your photo looks like Zip?! (“Zip was a live chimp from the Howdy Doody Show. Due to his popularity, they made toy Zip chimps”). Is it Zip? Wow, you are so blessed to be surrounded by so much inspiring love with your Family! Keep us posted on your new job when you have time Lori and have fun!

Me. Here. Right now. said...

Glad the tornado held off!
Thanks - it's a very exciting opportunity. And, as to the monkey, whom I always called Jo-Jo - it was originally owned by my aunt, who was born in 47 - so it totally could be Zip.

I loved your getting to know you..and of course, congrats on your new job..my cousin had one of those chimps she was never allowed to play with.it had belonged to another older cousin who had died..
