Dear Jane,

Welcome on board, I think a BIG BOB HUG will not do justice to this Quiz, even though they are collectable. But do not ask me what, because at this time I don’t know , But then again what do you give to someone when they have ME
Love
Bob

Aww Bob, Please

Can we not keep this quiz? Finally a quiz where I know some of the answers

I'm sure Caroline doesn't want all the quizzes to close and neither do the rest of us! Jane's even got a team lined up

Come on Bob - 'tis Christmas after all

Seasonal Greetings

Anne
