    checking your spam filter.

    Love the list! (Also checking spam filter as requested after taking the time to enjoy what you decided to share. Coffee IS good.)

    Nice list, Cricket; I should have known you were left-handed (all the great ones seem to be!) Maybe tomorrow I’ll try a ’35’ list, too (over a cuppa, of course!)
    P.S. Spam filter is easily found, and I think it’s funny. (Would a spammer lie, or leave a comment and not check the box?)

    Hi Cricket,

    that is a nice idea with the list (no, I don’t want to be tagged! 🙂 ). I like lists. Don’t know if you speak german, but in my blog you could also find some lists. To-Do list for the life, unusual marriage list, etc. 🙂
    And I like your pictures. Also something in common with us. Love photographing as well… but I need my time for that. Not as professional. Just for myself. Waiting for the right moment, the right situation and then *click* 🙂

    ok… maybe I will come back here somewhen and find something else interesting. Now I need to go to bad and tomorrow back to v7n… and see whats going on there.

    Have nice time.
    Ciao
    Gordon

    I seem to be following you around tonight. Have you noticed. We definitely have some things in common, Cricket. I’ll have to try writing 35 things for myself. Imagine that it isn’t as easy as it looks.

    Hm. Do I have 35 ANYthing? Lessee:

    1. Love my S/O of 25 years, ill and cranky as he is — and my two black cats. ONLY black cats allowed in our house!
    2. I still like to sing the blues to my hohum guitar-playing. Wish it was better.
    3. LOVE spiced red wine, Sam Adams beer and Schmidt Sonne spaetlese white wine — hate hard liquor.
    4. I’m righthanded, and I use it to fight the stuff I think is unjust — been REAL busy lately…
    5. Love to paint portraits in pastels (chalk). Try to make them “speak.”
    6. Kinda low-tech, but learning (I’m old, after all).
    7. Born on Hallowe’en — love it, just wish I hadn’t seen so many of them.
    8. Wanna walk without my cane. >:o(
    9. Wish I had one of all the instruments I’ve ever played — but then I’d need a bigger house!
    10. I dream of writing a blockbuster murder mystery that would get made into a SCARY movie!
    11. Grew up reading Nancy Drew murder mysteries — guess it stuck.
    12. Love horseback riding — knee too effed up to do any more.
    13. Only been to Texas once; wonder if I should try it again. It seemed kind of hot and beer-soaked — played poker for 24 hours, didn’t see much else.
    Can’t really think of a whole lot else that seems interesting — not even sure this does. But it’s something to consider, anyway.

    That’s random. It’s much easier to follow my facebook page & look through my photo albums. That’s how I try to find out more about someone in a BASIC way. It can ALL be made up to look good untill you spend the time to find out.
    Too many people are in a hurry these days. I think that’s where some people find their troubles. SAD ISN’T IT!!!
