I am very impressed Miss Nina. I laughed at the "I don't like to ride in the 1998 Ford truck". Great. We should get together and scrapbook some time. I absolutely adore scrapbooking. Did you know (not to make you feel bad) that you graduated h.s. the year after I was born. I was 1. LOL

Wow, I'm impressed you could come up with 100 things -- I'd still be sitting here trying to think of things to say! And after almost 29 years, there are still things that I learn about you from reading your blogs! Have I ever told you how happy I am that you're my sister-in-law???
