Lovely pic of the badlands. In '97, we took our 6 kids cross country from Maine to Calif and did drive through the badlands....it was such a beautiful place! We also camped in Minn on the way back and would NEVER want to live there! LOL. Where we were the mosquitoes were so bad it drove us out of our camp....we left super early, we just couldn't take another minute of it! And, being from northern Maine, we are use to mosquitoes and black flies but the mosq. there are huge and aggressive!!!!!! All this to say...enter me!

free indeed said...





I became a follower...but please, no mosquitoes!

Congrats. I am not far behind you. I started in April and was going strong...then got in a fight with the hubs and started all over again after being accused of bad-mouthing his company. I hadn't, but he wouldn't read it and I almost gave up completely. Took me a week to start posting pics again. I just have to have somewhere to share my projects...and look at others'! Congrats!

Louise SS said...
