Laura E. Swan 4/7/2012 6:27:02 PM

Hi Wm, Theresa, SSSKiki, Jeff, Kay, Brother John, Steve, Monnie and Bobby!

WHAT? You guys thought this was me? No, no! It's Aabit!!! Ha!

OKAY OKAY...SO YOU MIGHT KNOW WHO IT IS. Drats! You guys are just too good!

Bobby, don't tell anyone, but yes. This particular Aabit DOES sing country western. Just not on any CD you will find in your local stores. The Egyptians would frown on that. Lol....

Thanks everyone!!! This has been such fun already. Your comments are very entertaining!!! (As usual!)

-Aabit .... er ... I mean -Laura :D !! #10080366

Hi Everyone! :))) You are so good to me and my work! ALWAYS a pleasure to have you here and to read your responses. :) !!!

HeeHee Lorna "The Easter Aabit" Eh? Said by a true Canadian that still had frozen winter lips!

Well, Goddess Aabit has a message for you all, too, but it's in Egyptian. I have no idea what it means. She Says to tell you:

"Salam ya sadeeqee. Shukran. Da fakhr layy!!"

And then she closed her eyes and nodded her head once. :)

I'm sure she was likely thanking you. She looked very honored by your comments.

-Laura :D #10096508
