Wonderful Clara. I thoroughly enjoyed all 100 of them. Neat idea for you to do. Take care friend, hope both you and Bill are well.

Rachel said...

I loved them all too!! I think you and I are "Kindred spirits" Clara!! There are so many of them that I related to!!

I always HATE it when someone blows their nose while I'm eating, or just anytime. I hate to hear people blowing their noses. Yuck!
I also hate to have to blow my nose myself in public, and if I need to I'll go to the bathroom if at all possible to do it in private!! LOL

Clara, you are really something! I wish I could do some of those things you do.
Some folks in my family blow their noses in restaurants and it really embarrasses me.
Today I finally got to see the bowl of soup (I've been checking every day) and it looks so good!

Oh Clara that was wonderful!! I'm so glad you posted those 100 most interesting things about you! Your picture..your smile reminds me of my Grammy. I dont think I've ever told you that before. I tried to go to that website but it wouldn't let me. I will try again. You are a neat lady Clara!!

Tina Leigh said...

Mama (Dot)I have never blown my nose in a restaurant!! Yall that aint me she's talking about!! Sorry Clara...I seen Mama's post & I couldn't let everyone think I would do that..LOL!! I really dont!!

Thanks for sharing, I enjoyed reading your 100 things and looking at the pictures of your afghans too! Would you be able to e-mail me the directions for the Indian Afghan? Its absolutely beautiful and unique looking! My mother made one like that and so did my brother, but they're both gone and so are their books. Hoping Bill is doing better with his wheeley chair? Good luck to your son in school, its very hard going back after so many years - I did it after 20 years too. Whew!!

I forgot to wish you Happy 100th post anniversary! (even if you were late in noticing it and I'm late in wishing it!) :)
