This is fun, I might have to participate! :-) Maybe we can make # 79 happen... I'd do it for you, I'd visit a load of rocks for you.

Mrs. Maria said...

Jeope, that's amazing... you not having a cell phone. Good for you!

You're so artsy, I'm surprised you've never been to Europe! I think 2009 is your year. Flights are super cheap!
