So that's 22 of 70 done.
6 or so in progress.
And 6 I'm focusing on.

So hopefully by September (the midway point in these shenanigans!) I shall have 34 of 70 done. A.k.a. almost half! :-) Some of them I may never do, or certainly not in the next few years. But by golly I'll have fun trying!

Love,
Cxx

  1. Even with so many to go, that's still a pretty cool accomplishment. Oh, and Snakes on a Plane is probably one of the funniest movies I've ever seen.
