Over the top

These things are supposed to be extinct. The amateurs have all left for Facebook, and the big kids never played to begin with. But Jeni, who runs Down River Drivel, is such a nice lady that I can't turn her down on this. Her writing on the goings-on around her central Pennsylvania home are always entertaining, and I've enjoyed our various e-mail correspondences.

In order to participate in the "Over The Top" meme, you simply answer the following set of questions with one-word answers. It looks easy, but sometimes you have to give it some thought in order to come up with just one word. Those who complete the exercise get to proudly display the award seen at the top of the post, which I will take out to the shed to store with the rest of the junk proudly display in the Poll Hill trophy case once this scrolls off the front page.
