    Never thought you are not American, Iris! Neither am I!! But I am sure we are both American citizens (chuckle)

    Enjoyed reading your 100’s. Was actually hoping for another hundred.

    Hi,

    I enjoyed reading your “100 Things”. My eyes were stuck till the end. I finished reading it before I realised it was the 100th.

    I also picked up great ideas on how to continue mine. Many thanks to you.

    Iris,

    I just loved that! Your “100 things” were so fun to read. I wasn’t bored at all! (As you thought your readers might be…) Thanks for sharing about yourself. I think I’d really have to think hard to write down 100 interesting things about me…but I may just try someday. But for now, I’ll say…you and I were pregnant at the same time! My son was born, August 31, 1985! (My daughter followed 2 years later.) I was a “semi-tomboy” too…and I don’t care for German Chocolate Cake, either. (My favorite dessert is Creme Brullee!) Oh, and even though I was born in the good ole’ US of A…I just discovered I may also be Canadian! (There was a glitch in the law during the year when I was born regarding children born of naturalized citizens).

    Thanks again…I love your blog!

  12. Monika says:

    My family is German. They moved here right before I was born 1954….a few years ago 🙂 My dream is to be in Germany with others that love the Lord worshiping and praising Him in German. I have family there but not the time or mainly not the money to go there. God willing I will get to some day 🙂 I love your heartfelt 100 things!!! Monika
