    Brian: So, he really did have her best interests at heart.

  4. Noe Noe Girl...A Queen of all Trades: Yes, one should be very specific with her wishes. no telling how the universe will interpret them.

  5. ha, obviously not the kind of rich rachel was after...

  6. I love this!

    I was going to do the meme, then ran out of time and tried it last night and couldn't get anywhere with it. The thing intimidated me. But if I can treat it like a FF55, maybe I can handle it. I'll have to think about it.

  7. Ohhhhhh wOnderful! Hmmm... sometimes it's NOT as easy to fall in love with a RICH man!

  8. LOL - I'd loved to have seen her expression after the offer of carrots.

  9. juliana: She hasn’t figured out true value yet.

    Alice Audrey: I toss the pictures around and just do what comes to mind. Thom has no word requirements.

    Melli: She just wanted to fall in love with the rich part.

    Shelley Munro: Picture someone sucking on a lemon.

  12. Bloggin'withAmanda: I was afraid it might be too vague but you dun me proud *smiles*

  14. Indrani: She was not in for a pleasant surprise.

    Mumsy: Yes, the goat was a hint of things to come.

  15. Nessa this was good, Poor Rachel I guess it wasn't Mac that she found.
