You've never killed and prepared an animal for eating?! Doesn't it count when you buy a turkey or whole chicken and have to shake all the goobery "stuff" out of it and rinse and pat dry? Ookety ookety Ooooo! No matter how many times I do it, the feeling of the flesh and the thoughts of it previously running around get to me. So I say it counts.

Love this. And I totally joined in. And I need to travel more too!!!

Sabra at Sew a Straight Line said...

whoever made that list was partial to France, I think. Fun, though. I need to do this...

Vicky said...

OK, you tempted me and I did it! Please come and have a look - I have never been to the mainland US so there's a huge chunk of stuff that I have yet to do, but Europe's fairly well covered....

Great fun, thanks!

You've never had food poisoning?!?
Sheesh, I have had it like three times. But it isn't fun so I certainly wouldn't wish it on anyone.
