Here it is almost the end of February, and I almost missed a day of posting. I thought I had this scheuled to post, but somehow I made a mistake. Luckily, I caught it on time.

  1. Yeah, Barb, I have trouble believing that I bungee jumped, and even more trouble figuring out how I jumped out of a plane(once, let alone six times!) I have to say today you couldn’t pay me to do either.

  2. I remember the Camp Fire Candy. My friend was a Camp Fire Girl. What bone did you break? I hope it wasn’t while sky diving or on a speeding motorcycle 🙂

  3. Girasoli-I had a small fracture in my ankle. I was taking ice skating lessons, and fell. Never have been on skates since. Of course I didn’t do it when doing any of the dangerous things I’ve done.
