  1. I’m so happy to report that my wife and I are both fairly balanced, although we do wind up with a few postcards and pamphlettes. The post cards make it home crumpled because I was too lazy to send them, and the pamphletes because my wife scrapbooks.

    I do love that you mentioned the part about people bringing you spoons. I have six living turtles that live in a few parts of my house, and whenever a friend comes to visit, I make it very clear that these are my pets, and I do like them, but I don’t like turtle figurines. Please don’t ever get me a turtle figurine.

  2. Kavi…After visiting your room I know you are a hopeless case of extreme souveniritis outta balancia….Good luck to you

    BTW meself is 3 clocking

    • You have hope my friend…you have hope. Just keep it at that level (5) & make sure you don’t yield to the tug of that rope & you can be a happy tourist all yer life 🙂
