What is the ONE thing you want to do before you die and why?

Well, I'd like to go on a date with former super model Cindy Crawford.

We took such a trip in 1995, but we were both working, and had only 10 days vacation at the time. That wish would be feasible if I could get DH to agree to it.
So go without him. My mom went to Hawaii with one of her sisters (apparently not an option in your case) because my dad had no desire to go. She went to Poland without him-1st time with a group; 2nd time alone.


I don't remember how old she was when she went to HI but she was retired and had worked until 65 so probably closing in on 70. The Poland trips were after that.


As for what I'd like to do: I think it'd be fun to give a house away. Put a big bow on top and a ribbon around it. Not a big mansion-just a nice little cozy house.

OK why is that, "Cause I ain't ever gonna go there."

Old as grandma's feet, and twice as corny!
Love it! Made me laugh.

This just came up the other day at breakfast with friends at a local restaurant. I would like to drive a Zamboni. Don't ask me why, I can't explain it, but I have driven a lot of different kinds of vehicles and equipment but for some reason driving a Zamboni just looks like fun.

We have plenty, and a county ordinance to protect them!
