« Canaletto in North Carolina | Main | PhotoHunt: Warm »

So much to do (and so many places to go)...


Several of the February bloggers have posted this list - I've enjoyed reading their answers so I decided to do it too.

Of the things that I haven't done, I'd like to visit Jerusalem, see the Grand Canyon and Old Faithful, go to Africa and the Great Wall of China...basically all the travel things.

I have no desire to bungee jump, sky dive, sing karaoke, or kill my own meat. :)

It's a great list, isn't it? Sort of gives you an insight into other bloggers.

Ooh, Annie. Who is the famous person you met?
Great list!

Hi Nancy, I agree! Very fun to read these lists.

Candi, I met Willie Nelson one time in Austin Texas. I also met Michael Jordan and various other hoops stars over the years.

Kathy (Trekcapri):

Hi Annie, great list! I think saving Maria & Lulu definitely counts! I'm surprised you're the second person who had broken a bone.

You all have inspired me to do this list too! Plus I need a post in addition to PhotoHunt for the weekend! :)

Have a great day Weekend Annie!

Kathy, I broke a small bone in my foot when I was a teenager - it was very minor, thank goodness!

I'd love to see your list!


That's a great list, Annie! I hope you weren't too sick in Paris (altho these unpleasant incidents do make for good stories later!)

I'm impressed to read that you had your portrait painted and that you've taken martial arts classes.

And your night photo of the Palazzo Ducale is gorgeous, very atmospheric.

Sandra, I was sick as a dog in Paris! You are right, it does make a good story now (I might have to blog about it). The portrait was no big deal - my mom had pastels done of my brother and I when we were kids. And I took Tai Chi for a year or so when I was in college.

I enjoyed reading your list. You've done a lot! I did a similar one back in December. I am also impressed that you have taken a martial arts class. You have to build a snow fort if you ever get the chance. They are fun!!

Very cool Annie, meeting Willie Nelson that is.

Girasoli, if we ever get enough snow, I'll do it. It's been a long time since we've had enough for a snow man much less a fort.
