Congratulations on your 100th blog and thanks for sharing all these fabulous things about YOU.

Dolphins I adore and envy you so much for swimming with them TWICE! When I am come over to the USA in July 2010 I hope to swim with them then.

Hope your children have read these 100 things, I am sure there are some things you have written that they don't know about you.

I am glad you are NOT the typical, snobby Doctor's wife, and proud of that fact!!!!

Take care always
Miss Peg

Hey Carrie the link to Stephanie was just mistyped.....try again.
An easier way than typing someones address is to copy and paste.
Go to their site, copy their address and then paste it into the link square on your post.

miruspeg said...

Yes it works perfectly Carrie.....there will be no stopping you now!

Cheryl said...

Sounds like you have a very adventurous life...I'm a little, a lot jealous! LOL We were going to go to Cancun in January, but I don't think that's going to happen now...not with the Swine flu and all the fighting down there with the drug war...doesn't sound like a very safe place to be! Congrats on your 100th post!! :o)
