#36, I think?

This is #1 in a series of "my favorite things" from around my house.

A few years ago, I worked for a courier company. Part of my job was picking up boxes of things (x-rays, urine samples, patient records, etc.) from various doctors' offices, and delivering them to the hospital lab.

One day while I was in a doctor's waiting room, waiting for them to get their stuff together, I saw these maps on the kid table. The idea was to color them, but I thought it would be fun to use to keep track of which states I've been to, so I grabbed one, and stuck it in the crate I used to deliver stuff.

Of course, I forgot about it when I got to the hospital, so along with the usual specimens and documents, they also recieved one map of Henrietta and her missing chickens. Oops.

I was even more amused the next day when it was still there at the hospital, waiting to go back to the doctor's office. I remembered to keep it in my car this time!

As you can tell, I seem to have missed most of the northern US so far. Minnesota is just outlined, not colored in, because I've only been to the airport there. (Kindly explain how Minneapolis is a logical layover on the way from Missouri to Mexico?).

I'd like to hit all 50 eventually! (Except maybe Delaware, which I'm pretty sure doesn't actually exist.)
