SOME OF THE BEST THINGS I'VE EVER SEEN AND/OR DONE IN MY LIFE





#1 would have to be marrying Bud!!

We had three beautiful children.
(Sorry, wrong picture)

This is them a few (about 50) years ago:


And a little more recently:


I flew at zero gravity.
This is me starting to float:


I've traveled extensively.
I've seen all of these & more:

La Scala Opera House

The Last Supper


I also touched the Pieta & the Liberty Bell
before they were encased in plastic!!

In 2000, we took our daughter, son-in-law & grandchildren to Washington, DC to see the 4th of July fireworks from the steps of the Lincoln Memorial. 

We also traveled through most of Europe & the Orient. 


I've seen a space shuttle landing.

Lucille Ball held me in her arms in a movie when I was a month or so old.

I was a contestant on Truth or Consequences on TV.


I have been to spring training with the San Francisco Giants.


I flew co-pilot in the Goodyear blimp.


If you subscribe to the theory, as I do, that the brain is like a computer, then you know that it has a finite number of memory bytes.  As we age, gravity pulls these memories down, filling first our feet, then our legs, our bellies & butts (which would also explain why many older people seem to have gained weight in these areas) & finally reach our brains, which eventually become full.  Since humans don’t have a DELETE key, there is simply no room for new memories.  This is why we people “of a certain age” can remember who sat next to us in the third grade but have no idea of what we ate for lunch yesterday.  We are NOT forgetful—WE ARE SIMPLY FULL!!

  3. Joeh gave me the giggles. You have done some amazing things. You don't need a bucket list, you have done them all. The one I envy the most is zero gravity.

    1. There's only one thing left on my bucket list; I'd love to see Mt. Rushmore in person!! (Zero gravity was fantastic.)

  4. I'm always amazed at all the things you've done and places you've been! Truly a wonderful life. :) :) You know you've got a full brain when something reminds you of something you had completely forgotten for 50 years.

  6. Selling the best free things back to us: BOTTLED WATER! Who would have seen THAT one coming?

    I hope you're not the reason for those things being encased in plastic! You might be banned from Mount Rushmore, because that would be pretty expensive to encase in plastic. Ironically (I think), Mount Rushmore is one place I've been. You've had so many great experiences. You probably also have a connection to sliced bread!
