My little friend, Chrissie, Hmmm... looks like I will have to bring Ed with me, and head to New Hampshire to Chrissie's house. Why, you ask? Now I don't only have to watch Ed with the cut, pick, and ding & dent dept. Now, I have Mrs.Chrissie. I am actually squirming in my chair, as that must have hurt!! (Keep sharp instruments from Chrissie... AND Ed.) I have heard that moles can really bleed when you cut them. (See Millie's toes curl.) Now I guess I'll have to get around to writing my "Oops, wrong car " story. Don't cut stitches... call Dr. Love ya, Millie. P.S. I was guilty of doing the same thing with a bunch of stitches when I had 6 teeth pulled.
