Lynne, it is wonderful you are so active. Skiing and bicycling are great activities. I wish I learned how to ski. Your flowers are pretty, I am sure your gardens look lovely. Nice post, have a great day!

Lily of the Valley will get my attention every time - I can imagine their beautiful scent right now. I loved learning a little more about you in your random facts! Have a wonderful weekend. said...

My Mom being English from England that was the first flowers that came up out of her garden. Lily of the Valley.So dainty and smell so beautiful. I was three when I wanted the pretty flowers in the house. So I would put them in the vase as Mom picked them.

My # 1 fav flower of all then the other one is Liliacs.

I so like all your selections of flowers always.

HA! And here I thought with those blue eyes of yours that you and I were twins, and all along it's been you and Snickers that are twins... LOL

W. Latane Barton said...

you rode a bike a hundred miles, Lynne. I am impressed beyond belief.

Musings from Kim K. said...

I'm always impressed with new trivia about yourself. I wish kidney stones didn't like you. Ouch. Double ouch. If you are in Allegan Sunday, call my cell phone. Hugs!

Retired Knitter said...

Oh man, kidney stones. They are the worst! Better to have childbirth!

Leave It To Davis said... are funny! And you must have been in incredible shape!!! How old were when you rode 100 miles in one day on a bike? Amazing! I can't say I ever did anything amazing like that. I must live a very boring life.

Pondside said...

That was very interesting! Big sympathy about the kidney stones. They are NO fun!

Heather said...

My my you were quite the "daredevil"... 100 miles in one day, that's a lot! Cheers~

Nancy Claeys said...

Buck has one white whisker -- reminds me of my gray hair. Lol.

Wow -- interesting facts about you Lynne I never would have guessed. :)

Lynn said...

Yes, Lynne, you are both darn cute!
