  1. Talk about gettin' things done! You go on with your bad self!

    1. Still got so much more trouble to cause and so little time!

  2. holy shit, you beat bob on the "color ME impressed" list! I am a virgin next to you!

    1. I'm also 65 so I've been around longer to get some of the stuff done! Catch up, Virgin!!!!

  3. Yes, I saw this over at Anne Marie's blog too and was thinking of trying my hand at it as well. But WOW, have you ever been a busy gal in your life so far! How exciting to have lived in Japan! My Rare One and I were there on a trip a few years ago and just LOVED it!

    1. Japan was very interesting. We were often stopped on the streets by college students who would invite us to have a soda with them and talk English. Would love to go back.

  4. I've seen this on a few blogs. It looks like so much fun and I will consider joining in. WOW, you have had a busy and interesting life!

    1. It certainly brought back some memories!


Comment Please but Play Nice!
