    Who is Bezzie & what is her blog address?

    Been to Grand Canyon, Venice, Hawaii, Alaska, Vatican – but the Sistine chapel was closed.

    Been to the top of the Washington Monument several times as a child. I made my father do it when he was ~40. When I turned 40, I had to go to him and apologize.

    Ate Caviar – it was gross. Way too salty for me.

    Love your blog. I read it regularly and have done a couple of your projects. Keep up the good work. You inspired me to create my own blog about the wedding dress I am making for my niece. http://www.sewbobbi.wordpress.com

    I don’t know about the Lincoln Memorial, but I do know you’ve sold Girl Scout cookies (61). We were both in Brownies for about a year and a half. Selling the cookies was one of the reasons Mom decided she didn’t like Brownies.
