I went to the Faith Hill/Tim McGraw concert too! And I have many a memory of laughing so hard with Holly!! She has the best sense of humor. Can't picture you riding a motorcycle- they terrify me. You are more adventerous than I am!

Your mom says I have memory issues too, but with all the camping we did when you were growing up I would think you'd slept under the stars at one point, and ASL isn't a common SPOKEN language, is it? I'm a little surprised you haven't seen the northern lights, living here in Michigan. I've seen them several times (they are fascinating!)
