What? You never bungee jumped? Like the rest of us?


Kathleen, it's nice to know you better. Have a very Merry Christmas with the ones you love,

Now that is some list, I did skinny dipped once when I was younger and got caught. Merry Christmas, thank you for coming by.

Ruth said...

Everyone has gone skinny dipping but me! Seems that you are quite musical too. Merry Christmas to you.

Kathleen said...

I'll go if you go! Wait, I'm kidding too. There is no way!

You got caught? There is a good story in there somewhere.

I'm sorry. You really must! Go alone or go with someone, but put skinny dipping on your list.

Also, I wish I were musical. Just because I was brave enough to sing doesn't mean I can - or should - sing. Fa, la, la..

Enjoy a glorious holiday!

Sheri said...

Great list! You've done more on the list than I ~~ however, I've swam in the Great Salt Lake (yuck!) and seen Old Faithful erupt (many times).

Happy New Year to you!

Kathleen said...


I been wanting to see Old Faithful since I learned about it in 5th grade geography. I'll get there someday! There are so many wonderful places on my very long list.

word verification: zoomimat - we better zoom 'n at around the world! :-))

Maybe you could combine a few and get done faster! Like, (22) hitchhike to (73) Times Square then (68) fly a helicopter to the top of the New Year's ball drop spot and (11) bungee jump from there:)

What a great plan, Michele. When do we leave?
