Hi Joanne, I tried to leave a comment earlier but for some reason it didn't show up. Hmm... I must have deleted it. Anyways, thanks for sharing your list with us. It's always fun to learn something new about a fellow blogger. I am going to join in too but I will post it on my blog. Have a great weekend.

Hehehe, I'll repost on my blog :) I just saw this and though of you!


You worked at the Flying W Ranch? My family loved that place. Okay, okay - I didn't quite love it as much as they did.

Now I'm missing Colorado.
