thursday thirteen #1

thursday thirteen is where you have a list of thirteen something. they can all relate to each other or they can be totally random. for example, it can be thirteen reasons why you like fly-fishing, or thirteen reasons why you love reading my blog, or thirteen reasons why you wish i wouldn’t blog. you get the picture. or like i said, it can be thirteen random thoughts that you are having at that moment. i found this over at if you wish to participate, head on over there and link to your own list of thirteen.
