So fun! I need to remember to do this later. I went to Bernadettes store the other day and bought more buttons - thought of you.

Two Dog Pond said...

Wow! You've done a lot of fun things - and reading the things you've done shows how happy and content with life you are. That's excellent!

A Cuban In London said...

Tai chi IS a martial art :-). What size does the book have to be in order to be read in just one day?

I don't think I have done most of the activities listed, except for learning a new language.

Goood list.

Greetings from London.

That was fun! I can mark off 61...for most of the rest I can see I need to get off this continent more:D There are a few that at this point in my life are just not going to be happening...and I'm more that cool with that!

Cate Holst said...

Great list. I feel exhausted reading all the things yet to do!

Jenn said...

This is awesome, totally going to snag it for today's blog :) I think we can both be grateful for the fact that neither of us have had to sit on a jury but that we have both gotten flowers for no reason huh? This is a fantastic tie in to Thanksgiving :)

fly tie said...

a salsa garden??? *raises eyebrow*

sounds like something i could do successfully without killing off everything.

Keeping Good Company said...

This list is such a great way to find out more about someone. Would you mind if I copied it onto my Blog and shared it? It's something different then what I usually post, but still so fun and unique!

It's really interesting to read other people's answers to this meme-thing. So many of us have saved a childhood toy, for example :)
