One Hundred Things ... Which have YOU done?

Make Time for Small Reflections
I seen lists like this around the Blogosphere,

put this meme out there for any one who wants to do it.

To participate, just copy and paste the list in your own blog, and color all of the things YOU have done (mine are in purple, but you can use any color you want). Things you haven't done will be in black.

Baba said...

Wow.. You have done many things in your lifetime...thanks for sharing with us... I added snow to my blog today, but the flakes are so small..I wish I could enlarge them..
Enjoy your night. Hugs, Baba

Joyce said...

You have done SO MANY things, Storyteller! Congratulations!

I wish I enjoyed traveling more, but since I don't, there's not much likelihood that I'll ever see some of the wonderful sights that you have seen.

I haven't decided yet if I want to do the list. Indecision ...

Joyce said...

I have only done 36 of the things on the list. :)

Kay said...

Gracious! You've done a ton of things! What a life!

Linda said...

I enjoyed learning more about you. You have had a full life.

I've been busy getting the house ready for Christmas these past few days. Sorry I haven't been by sooner.

Debbie@Like a Rose said...

I'll have to do this list one day soon. How fun.

By the way, I love the pictures with your 12 Days of Christmas at the top.

maryt/theteach said...

storyteller, so busy, just like me! Isn't it great we can do so many things and still a lot of things to do? :)

Mom Knows Everything said...

I did this one a while ago, long meme eh! :o)

Karen said...

I did a variation of this meme a while back--it's a fun one, isn't it? You sure have done a lot of travelling...and I'm a little curious--who's the famous person you've met?

Momisodes said...

I love reading these lists and seeing what people have and have not done (like skinny dipping, lol!)

I can't believe you've never had food poisoning. Consider yourself very, very lucky :)

Anonymous said...

Gotta try this one! Thanks for sharing! I'm afraid I might not be able to change the color of the list, even just an item.lol!

Hootin' Anni said...

Ohhhhhhhhhhh, okay. I get it now. I thought it was a meme where you put down 100 things about yourself. Well, duh!!

You have been in a helicopter? I would love to try and fly one myself. That would be a dream come true.
