I'm surprised that with all your camping trips that you've never slept under the stars.

Does Pierre Elliot Trudeau or Bill Davis count for my famous persons?

How about camping beside Ray Romono this summer?

Catharine said...

I would love to sometime, although the thought of being mosquito eaten does not entice me to sleep outside.

I'm sure I know a large number of people who havn't built snow forts. Snow isn't too common down here in southern Louisiana, or in central-southern Texas.
