This is fun. So far I've got lists from:

Barb
Jan
Pam
Grandma Ann

I hope to get several participants. Laura's away. We'll wait for her. Barb and Jan have both submitted lists of things they've actually done. Hopefully the remaining who join do the same. It'll make for quite some conversations, won't it?

I sent in my just-for-fun list since I won June. I found only 30 of the listed things that I had done so I just went down the list and chose the first 25 of them.

Just counted and discovered 64 for me. A couple of them were debatable like seeing the Northern Lights. I saw the tail ends of some of them all the way down here. It wasn't much more than orange and pinkish hazes but it wasn't like anything I'd ever seen before so I guess it counts.....

Northern light was on my first list for the same reason.
