Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her final year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. (he keeps me on my toes!) I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 18 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

Even if we HAD luxury toilet paper, I would still be confronted with what you see in this picture in my home!  A few weeks ago I blogged about my friend's water saving toilet.  It had two buttons, one for #1 and one for #2.  She said it was water saving and thus, money saving.  Now I know what everyone is saving money for:  luxury toilet paper!?!?!?
