99 Things

Well, I took this fun little activity from someone else's blog. I can't remember whose blog it was....I looked at it yesterday, and I thought it was one of the blogs I follow, but now I can't find it*. I had to do a Google to find the 99 things list.

*Edited to add that I later found it again, on North Star Shetlands!

The idea is to look at a list of 99 things and say whether you have already done them, you want to do them, or you have absolutely no interest in doing them. Anybody else who wants to do this, please feel free to abscond with it from my blog!

It is a good thing to talk about when waiting for your goat to kid.

Hey, you've been moving furniture around! Well, redesigning your blog. Hoped for news about Stuffin, but took an excited look at the doelings on Antiquity Oaks.
Diane has apparently been hanging around bridges with D, taking photos.

100. Been married to someone.

Everything turned out good, but I was scared about marrying someone.
That's a good list.

The challenge still stands. We haven't had any results yet either.

Your're on! Sounds like a good prize to me. If I could touch Holly, I would go out and squeeze her. Right now she is peacefully laying down chewing.

OK, Claire, you asked for it. How about you do a post with 10 of your favorite things that start with the letter "P". I'm looking forward to seeing what you come up with!
