It’s that time again – time for another rousing round of What Haven’t I. That’s right, it’s the guessing game about who I am and what I have or haven’t done. This month the categories are totally random.

As a reminder, the rules are simple: Post your answers in the comments section below. Three of the answers are things that I have actually done, one is something I have not done. You can’t win if you don’t play so put on those guessing caps and get to work.

So, here goes:

1. What haven’t I attempted to play: a) Piano; b) Guitar; c) Accordian; or d) Ukelele

2.  What haven’t I seen up close and personal:  a) A corral reef; b) A cave; c) A volcano; or d) A geyser.

3.  What hobby haven’t I done:  a) Bird watching; b) Jewelry making; c) Scrapbooking; or c) Cross-Stitch

4.  What pet haven’t I had:  a) Bird; b) Hamster; c) Fish; or d) Cat.

5.  What haven’t I read:  a) Pride & Prejudice; b) Grapes of Wrath; c) The Scarlett Letter; or d) Julius Caesar.

Good luck and I’ll look forward to ya’ll stopping back on the 23rd to see how you did. Remember, the fastest and the best guesser will both be awarded prizes.

Word of the day:  Dwerger (this is my favorite word so far)

Fun fact about me:  When I was 12 years old I almost dropped my neighbor’s baby. (Yikes!!!)
