Yup, she would move quickly. Miz Anne has done that to her a time or two and
Sleepy moves over to lie next to me in the old easy chair. Do all them little
skinny wimmen have cold feet? Miz Anne used to put them cold things in the middle
of my back in our younger days. I won't mention how I broke her of that habit but
she wears socks to bed when it gets really cold. Does that mean we're getting old
or what? <VBG>
