Fun! I have to ask .... "Claibie"?? Is there a story behind that?

Snippety Gibbet said...

Ditto what Lynilu said. Claibie? Sounds interesting.

And high five on the never late thing. Me either. I break out in a sweat if I think I am going to run late. I rarely, if ever, do.

OK, I'll explain Claibie... My middle name is Claiborne. When I was little my parents called me Mary Claiborne. My older brother shortened it and used to taunt me with "Claibie is a Baby."

Thanks for explaining Claibie. Had me wondering also.
Thank was really interesting.
You certainly have been a healthy person haven't you? Keep up the good work. said...

I love fried okra, and don't get enough these days since Black-Eyed Pea went out of business. I'll have some of your fried oysters thank you very much. My favorite quote is probably "This is another fine mess you got us into" myself, usually. From the Laurel and Hardy movies. Dianne

I love these things. I never do them but always want to!

Claiborne is a beautiful name!

My favorite quote from a movie is, "There must be a pony!"

Took you up on the meme which can be viewed at .

I am rarely late. I was candymaker in my family when I cooked so date nut roll, using Texas Pecans was a treat.
