When I started my little blog, I did not know there were already blog traditions and protocol that I would have to follow or I might have just said "No way". Well I didn't know and have always wanted to write, so I started my blog. Now I learn that on my 100th post, I am supposed to write 100 interesting things about myself. ISN'T THAT JUST GREAT! I don't know if all of these will be interesting or if I will be able to think of 100 of them, but here goes (in no particular order)...
100. I have always wanted to write a children's book.
99. I want Frank to illustrate said book.

90. I really, really hate telemarketers!
89. I love going to Las Vegas.
88. I love working in my flower garden.

82. I love to fly.
81. I hope to graduate from college some day.

77. I can't wait to take Mattie May and Katie to Disneyworld.
