What an awesome and ambitious list. I think 20, 37, 55 and 92 sound like the marrying of a perfect idea. Just sayin'.

So I just have to say that every time I get on here (usually every 3posts with so little time these days).... you take my breath away.

The way you write. The way you contemplate. You are so lovely and I wish I could bring you some apple butter than I just canned. And may I be your letter friend? I'm actually thinking of starting something like that (a pen pal thing) via my blog...you'll have to do it with me!!
