Thank you for being excited about turning 30... I'm not quite there yet, but am trying to wrap my brain around the concept ;) Ah, late 20's, single, still wondering what's out there. Phew, I'm not alone.

When did you live in Bloomington, IL? I went to college at ISU!!! GO GO GO! And, when I turned 30 I thought I was OLD. Yep. And, bananas as a snack...!? Where is your chocolate! Ok, and I will get in touch with you closer to our trip to Tucson and let you know what is up. I will climb Mt. Lemmon one day for sure - and god knows I can not ride with SS and Jerome! :) PS I do not have your cell # anymore, but I will get it before I head out, and give you a heads up on what I am going to do....:) Jen H.

Oh...Totally awesome, I made it to your blog. I am sincerely honored. I did, for one brief moment, create a blog, called Joanna's Ponderings or something along those lines. But, I never posted, not even one entry. I have the address someplace on my desk in Madison, I will have to see if the site still exists. Day was really great actually. Much calmer than last week and it was cool to see all these young kids from all over. There is one girl that has a Rwandan Dad/American Mom. Girl after my own heart, wouldn't you say!?! Love to you Dinker Bottoms...
