I accept his request!

Mr. Simpleton had a number of items on his list that I also would like to learn, including:
Learn a foreign language (French, Italian or German are at the top of the list)
Know all plants (including weeds) in the area
If you want to learn some old-time knowledge, I recommend the Foxfire books. They have recently been reprinted, but you can find them used.
(Though I want to learn all this stuff, you have to leave some stuff so you always have a goal for the future).
I now tag the following people to post their lists...
Regan at A Day in the Life
Mountain Woman at Red Pine Mountain
Ga Farm Woman at Life on a Southern Farm
Keep it going!
