  1. I hate mushy canned peas, too. I hate mushy canned anything.

  2. Good one. So did the meme writer come up with the categories for each alphabet letter?

    Also, when is - was your birthday. Mine was Jan 15.

  3. when I was a kid I LOVED canned peas. Now I agree with you.

    We got both vehicles in the garage tonight so we don't have to have frozen faces tomorrow.
