Great list, my 33rd TT is up at 13 Muslim Greeting Cards - I noted the paucity of Islamic Greeting Cards at my local stationery store and so as a public service to Muslims in America, I offer the following 13 Shariah-Compliant Greeting Cards...

Michelle said...

What a cute TT. Great idea. I agree, I think Nemo needs a hug.

On a limb with Claudia said...

I need a hug! ;)

Great TT!

Meju said...

Hugs to them all...especially Eyeore.

Lori said...

Great list...and oh so right:) Happy TT.

Joyful Days said...

Great idea! I love Eeyore.

Alexander from "The Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day" story could use a hug.

Charlie from "Charlie and the Chocolate Factory" could use a hug, too.

I think there are times when Luke Skywalker needs a kick in the seat of the pants. Hamlet - same thing.

The Pink Flamingo

Awww, I want to hug Eeyore every time I see him! Great list....Happy TT!

Emma Sanders said...

I've always felt sorry for Charlie Brown. He's so mistreated...

bernieg1 said...

Well, we could hug them all, but Charlie Brown would definitely be my first pick.

My TT this is week is about the 13 Myths of Sarah Palin
