Life List

This list has been around for a while, but seeing it on Nellie's blog this morning reminded me of it, so here's my life. Things I've done are in bold type.

Magnifies my perspective of "Kay." You already hit a home run in my book but to see the Mona Lisa and The David and the Sistine Chapel! That's really something else - in my book. And the farm life - I didn't know about that. Neat! Thanks for sharing.

This was fun to read!

Hey, we're both farm girls. How about that? I figure that's where I learned "how" to work ... animals have to be fed ... gardens and fields have to be tended and harvested ... no matter what ... rain, cold, heat, tired, other plans, sick ... it's got to be done somehow by somebody. That's still my mode of operation.

Oh fun, Kay - hmmmm...I did own and ride a motorcyle in my 40's - unbelievable, huh!
