    It's a leap year. I'm going to make an extra loan on the 29th. Who's with me?

    That sounds like a fun way to celebrate Leap Day. It's always good to help others leap ahead in life. Count me in for a loan. :)

    Four of us! Hopefully more will make a loan and I'll need my fingers AND toes to count all of us.

    I decided to make my loan slightly related to the word leap. I hope you follow my logic - Queen Noor of Jordan wrote a biography called Leap Of Faith. Loans are going in Jordan so I've chosen Jordan. Plus the loans are for housing which matches me because I'm currently buying a house.

    It will not be Leap Day here in the Southeastern US for another 46 minutes. However, time is a curious illusion we humans rely upon to make us more neurotic. That being the case I too made my Leaploan to MissB's selection. I have fulfilled my pledge and can now return to my regular life.
