Terrific list of lovers but I must admit I don't think that my 4 year old grandson care about Lois Lane yet (but wears his superman outfit all the time). Ah, to be young again and love life. Ah, to be old and treasure the memories!

Elaine Cantrell said...

I'm glad you enjoyed it, Linda. Caffey, you got some of them, right? That's good. Amy, I thought it was very sweet too. Jeanne, your 4 year old Superman fan would love to meet my 6 year old Superman fan. He doesn't like Lois Lane yet either.
