99 things....

One of the girls in my Good Morning Girls group, and fellow blogger, had this list of 99 things on her blog last week. She got it from another blogger, who got it from another get the idea.

Incidentally, if anyone hasn't ever joined a Good Morning Girls group before, the new session starts next week and I'm sure there will be some groups still taking members. Our group have become such good friends and we are spread out over such a big area - Scotland, England, Canada and the US! This session we are going to be studying Proverbs 31. You can find out more here.

Anyway, Rachel was a little late coming into our group, via one of the other girls, and it turns out that she and I both studied music and she is a fellow lover of Chopin! Her blog is Dove of Snow, and it was there that I got the list.

So, passing it on, here is my list, which is quite different from Rachel's as I have never been to the US, although perhaps one day.....

If you want to share your version and see if you can beat my 44/99 (that is, if I didn't miscount!) then leave a link in the comments so I can come by and check it out!
