10 things I've done that you probably haven't

I got this from John Scalzi's journal:  

TEN THINGS I'VE DONE THAT YOU PROBABLY HAVEN'T  

1.  hand-milked as many as five cows, twice a day, every day

2.  Traveled with a group of clowns on a missions trip with a Baptist Church    

3.  Attended Sunday School in Plains, Georgia, with Jimmy Carter (he was the teacher)

4.  helped butcher hogs at home

5.  rendered lard

 6.  Had some of the songs I wrote recorded and received (tiny) royalty checks

7.  Published a book of my poems

8.  Attended a one-room school and walked two miles to get there

9.  Raised rabbits, ducklings, turkeys, goats, baby lambs, bottle calves, piglets, guinea fowl, goslings, a baby robin, a baby pigeon, a baby sparrow, and a baby squirrel

10.  Made my own butter and cottage cheese and yogurt

Did the Sunday School in Georgia have a blackboard, or did Carter just write stuff on his teeth?
