Great list. I decided to play too! Also, I am tagging you for a photo meme. I know you don't always do these so I won't be offended if you choose not to.
* open the 4th picture folder in your computer.
* open the 4th picture folder in that folder and post it on your blog.
* explain the picture.

Prairie Chick said...

love it. Such a wonderful glimpse into the far reaches of a persons life (don't go getting your hackles up, I'm not referring to age). I'm working on a follow up one now that isn't pre-fab. Where I can put all my funnest and wierdest memories into my own famous fifty post. I loved reading yours.

Gina...no one that glamorous...the Football Sportscaster John Madden when I was a young teen...we were up in D.C. for a Redskins game and I met him by chance in the lobby of the Hyatt Regency where we were staying. Being a big football fan, I loved it! And got his autograph.
