One Witty Remark to “100 Things about me”

  1. storytelleron 30 Apr 2008 at 1:54 pm 1

    Reading your ‘Bucket List’ list of 100 Things I found many commonalities … and I hope you’re able to follow through on everything.

    I married my high school sweet heart (though we both graduated from college first) and we were divorced after 21 years too when he left me. My parents died a long time ago and I miss them (and my brother) even now. I have just one surviving sister, but we’re close even though she’s traveling with her husband in an RV.

    I’m a procrastinator and an optimist too … but my hair is mostly gray at least in the front where I see it frame my face … and I almost NEVER wear shoes now that I’m retired.

    Seems to me that praying for your pilot is an excellent idea … the sooner the better. I concur fully with the last three items on your list … have blue eyes … value my privacy and solitude and live with fur-friends (a feral cat and a 3 year old lab). There’s more … but you can find a link to my list in the About Me section of either blog ;–)

    Hugs and blessings,
