Guess I'm It

Seven things that attract me to my wife:
That's her above, a couple of days before she retired from teaching at the end of 2003.
1 She loves God
2 She loves our kids big time, and is getting ready to make TWO more hero suits for our 27 yr old son Jeremy, out of orange lycra. He is EVERYMAN! (as opposed to superman or batman)
3 She loves me…. Yep…. Even me! She puts up with me and laughs at me, especially when she can’t predict what’s gonna happen next (after 37+ years!)
4 She is a very good driver and enjoys driving our 4WD.
5 She rides on the back of our tandem as stoker
6 She is so good at doing all the things I don’t do well because she’s a choleric melancholy and I’m a sanguine – cooking, cleaning, tidying, redoing the outside tiled paths, painting the house, organising parties, helping me tidy my parts of the house )like office.)
7 She loves taking Dinah for a walk (our daughter’s dog that lives here too.)

Seven Things to Do Before I Die:
1 Visit South America – Feb/March 2006
2 Go to Kangaroo Island in South Australia
3 Learn to ride my unicycle - 2007
4 Learn to play the didgeridoo - 2007
5 Learn Spanish – hopefully quickly, before we get to Sth Am!
6 Ride my new Bike Friday across Kansas – 10-17 June 2006
7 See all my kids come to love the Lord! Amen!

Seven Things I Cannot Do:
1 Jump out of an aeroplane
2 Bungey jump
3 Speak Japanese
4 Cook
5 Fix computers
6 Run very fast

2 Strike
3 Do you wanna go for a ride?

awwww your wife is really a lovable and lovely lady =)I enjoyed browsing through your blog, and will continue to do so!

Thanks for dropping by my blog. Hey is Keasty your name by the way?

No worries Jan. Glad to pray for the boss.
Hey Kitty, my name is Grahame Keast. I often get called Keasty. It'll be tricky when we go overseas next year with our 3 kids, because Peta calls Jeremy Keasty and vice versa!! Debbie is married and is Mrs McLaughlin... so she doesn't get Keasty as much. Good to have another Aussie on board.

Yeah! I love your answers Keasty! Your wife is a wonderful lady. Admit it, this was fun wasn't it?!

thanks for the tag Keasty, but I'd actually been tagged for the same thing already, just hadn't got around to posting an answer yet - now I'll have to

Thanks for the tag Keasty, I've just given the shortened version of the sacred 'sevens' in my blog.
