1 Place You Want To Visit
I'm not a good traveler but I would love to see England and Australia.

That's it for today....blogger wouldn't let me post a photo!!


  1. What time do you get up in the morning? I think you are 3 hours behind us, and you have already done all that!!! It's 10:30 a.m here now.
    I am very impressed of the things you have done, you are doing.

  2. pirk - I cheated and answered all the questions last night! But I do get up between 6 and 7 each morning.

  3. Was it Overhule---the Mike guy.
    I think that was how you spelled his last name. WG

  4. I'm glad you did the list!

    (FWIW, I think hunting or target practice either one counts for the gun question. It didn't ask if anyone was shooting at you, just if you'd been near or in the middle of gunfire.)

  5. I loved your answers. You have a delightful sense of humor. I also could comiserate with the seed bead spill,,been there, done that,,and its a pain! I love the little needle holder you made,,I want one,,it must go on my list,,my very long list.


Thanks for taking the time to visit me and for leaving a comment. I appreciate each and every comment and will answer any questions via email. Otherwise I will respond to your comments with comments of my own on your blog. I love the blogging community!!
