Maybe learning to copy and paste on the computer should be #100.

I find it interesting to read these short missives and then to wonder and imagine the circumstances of some.

Thanks for sharing these brief pieces (patches?) of yur life.

What about #52? Did you miss that one?

June Calender said...

#52 is in bold. I'm happy to say I've been kissed both in the rain and in the snow, and a few other places too.

#72 is pieced a quilt. That should be bold - I know you've done that many times.

June Calender said...

Yes, #72 is bold. Indeed I've done it many times in my life. I think the bold/not bold is hard to see, depending on the computer and screen resolution
