So, I have decided to complete the popular meme floating out there in blogland these days. It is my turn to purloin and join this band of meme rustlers. Yeehaw! Here goes.

Been on TV - With my 4th graders
Fallen in love - Only once, but I got it right the first time.
Driven cross country - Well I have been to both coasts,
but not on the same trip.
Hit a deer - Yes, on our wedding night. Sam always said if

Ridden a horse - Did this as a kid at camp. I sucked.
Almost died - Drank insecticide when I was 4 or 5 years old.

IN LOVE NOW? – Oh, my. The answer to this one has been
