                      Debbi you appear to have so many guilty pleasures that they were bound to be one. 🤣

                              Thanks Phil for choosing the decade when I became a teenager. Music was and still is a huge influence on my life. I didn’t know 6 or 12.
                              I’m going to do this even if it kills me!
