    Actually Ruthann was the girlscout, believe it or not!
    And I’m guessing that you still have your Pooh Bear?
    As for #85…are you sure you didn’t have your beer goggles on? 🙂

  2. Amber says:

    I say Pooh bear, too. I saved lots of toy (everyone knows Teddy Bear Beary Layton). Chris got 39, I won with 43. Still a lot more I would like to do on that list, and a couple of things I wish I hadn’t, ie. bounced a check ewww.

  3. Amber says:

    Oh yeah, i was a girlscout, too, and 4 H.

  4. ashley says:

    I like that you have so many pictures too.

  5. Tammy says:

    Awesome list! I’ve done 56 of them which amazes me, but then again, it doesn’t because I’m up for just about anything. I think you can count having a baby though – I mean, I don’t think that’s gender based and only means did you squirt a child from your own loins? You and your wife both had a baby, she just did the physical part. So yeah, you should count that.

  6. I might need to borrow this list! 🙂

    Please do!

  7. RUTH ANN says:

    ok, so I got a 39, geesh Amber what the hell else have you been up to, I thought I had done did it all LOL, i guess my lil sister has got me beat.

  8. Is that a sundress you have on in the Hawaii picture? *wink*

    NO! Geezuz…I only wear sundresses when I’m in Jamaica!

  9. Mom says:

    Well, my score is 59. I think your toy is both your pooh bear AND your blankie. You took both to college. I may be mistaken, but I think Kathy still has her blankie. Also #46 is a bad memory for my kids. #47, you did, too, have your portrait painted and it is hanging on the wall in the family room downstairs, right next to RuthAnn. So add another to your score. Love….mom

    Yes…it is Pooh. No blanket though. That’s been gone for many years! And I forgot about those portraits! So I’m adding them AND the having kids one. So now I’m up to 41!

    I got a 44. Not too bad but evidently have a few more things to live for.
