My Turn

Listening to: Bob Marley & the Wailers, Live!

Surfing over to Just Heather earlier today, I saw in this post that 'Jim' was one of the people who now had to take this test. "Me?" I wondered (because, of course, there is no other 'Jim' in the universe) so I had to go and ask if she indeed meant me and Heather replied, cryptically, "Tag, you're it".

If Heather did indeed mean me, I'm flattered. Don't know what I did to deserve the distinction but I'll rise to the challenge and here you have my answers.

Fun, thanks for playing along! (and, yes, I had meant you) It's funny, I almost put Kenya as one of my places except it wouldn't be a vacation. I'm toying with the idea of a missions trip to one of our sister churches. It seems like such a fascinating place. I'll go eventually, but I'm not quite ready to leave my kiddos for weeks on end.
