1. Does your home have CAC or AC Units?

2. Does your job now, or any job you ever had, have early days off in the Summer?

3. What is the most romantic thing anyone has done for you?

Well, I loved the names. I know several people named after literary characters. Is that unusual to you? Why did you chose your children's names?

Why is that a coincidence? Do you live there, too? We love the close proximity to Kansas City, all while living in a small town! The best of both worlds.

To have ALL your kids named from one book? Yeah, never really heard anyone do that. 

My youngest name was actually picked out way before we were married or even engaged. It was from a character on a show we used to watch. My oldest I had 30 names picked out I liked, hubby liked 2, picked it from those 2.

You've never heard of  theme for names? Ever? Why, we have twins in the co op named after the Bobbsey Twins! Their mother just couldn't resist. Bert and Nan, of course. Not Flossie and Freddie.

Persuasion is my all-time favorite of hers.  I admit, tho, that as much as I adore Austen, I've never been able to embrace Northanger Abbey.

I really don't understand. Why are you laughing at me for my place of residence? Have you been to Paola, KS? Or KC?
