meesh said...

I learned a few things! Thanks for the fun list!

Mrs. M said...

I love your list, and several of the things on it, like tilapia and not putting gas in my car.....

tsbjf said...

Good list! Two things really stuck out to me--the world map shower curtain, do you have one of those? I've never seen one, that would be sweet! And the detailed car, done by Micah? Like...did he paint it?

Jessie said...

Oh, I gave heard the Scotland Yard board game is fun we shall have to come play with you.
And I will be excited to hear about your #57 :)

Joy said...

:) I love Sonic ice too! And this is totally a great list!

Joanne,

Yes, I really do have a map shower curtain - I use it to learn geography. And, actually, they're pretty common! http://www.target.com/Home-World-Map-Shower-Curtain/dp/B001C4CK4C/sr=1-1/qid=1232825904/ref=sr_1_1/180-2389950-9407650?ie=UTF8&index=target&rh=k%3Amap%20shower%20curtain&page=1

And, by "detail", I just mean clean really well. Like they do with new and "previously owned" cars. No racing stripes for me!

Wow! Some day we need to get together and make me a list of 200 things. Mostly because I think we have a bunch of yours in common, so it wouldn't take too long! Of course, none of mine have anything to do with Micah..

I love the Franz Family- music and people!
