You've done two things on this list that I'd like to do but haven't yet: hold a lamb & ride in a helicopter.

I went on the helicopter when I was 7 (don't remember it) because we were going on a suprise plane trip and my parents wanted to make sure we could handle it.

And as for the lamb, well I used to have a pet sheep named Tabitha who, when she had a lamb, I also named Tabitha... in my defense, I has 4, but still, I'm glad my imagination has improved since :)

This one seems to be making the rounds, I've seen it 2 or 3 times in the last week. I'll try to do it on my blog in the next week!

A friend of mine raises sheep and spins her own yard, knits beautiful things etc. I'll pass along Tabitha as a possible name in case she's surprised with lambs again this year. Cute story.

This was fun! I posted it, too. :) I started my blog with the intention of posting only about my writing, but that soon turned into writing about writing, about reading, about working, about cooking... and now it's a catch-all of everything! It's fun to stray away from books sometimes. :)
