I have a guy who could fedex us an orangatang. everybody just has to chip in by paypal $200. then we could send him around the country and everybody would get a chance to have a meal with him.   you do know that I am kidding, right?
What do we feed an orang....bananas?

1- I've been to a part of Atlantic Ave in Brooklyn that's like being in Morocco. 2 - I've argued with a Supreme Court Justice over a tennis court (Justice Breyer, before he was appointed). 3 - I've sung in front of full kareoke bars 4 - Um, nope. 5 - We grew grapes in my backyard when I was a kid. Does that qualify?

Each one of those is closer than I've gotten.

I have 3 comments here: 1. I am truly jealous about the Augusta thing, my boss plays there every year, and has for the last 22 2. Why would anyone want to jump out of a perfectly good airplane, when their is a comfortable seat right there in first-class, with a nice lady serving drinks. 3. I once argued in a court, not the Supreme Court mind you, and almost got 30 days for contempt. Would love to go to Morocco, I did kinda scuba dive a ship wreck once, in the Bahamas, they have an old James Bond set in Nassau you can dive in.

The Rookie - I have climbed Aconcagua and Denali. I had planned on climbing Kilimanjaro in 2002, but my wedding plans sort of interfered...... I have given up all my climbing (rock, ice, and mountaineering) since then. Sigh - memories.....

I know several people who have done kilamanjaro - my understanding was that it requires no technical skill just stamina. I am impressed by Everest, I don't know anybody who has done that.

One more really important thing to do before I die, and it has been to long ago and another topic made me remeber the good days of doing this: Have lunch at the Taco Stand, Tail-gate at Sanford Stadium and catch one more game, go to The Grill for a greasy burger, and to reminisce the good ole days of Hershel.

nightowl, jumping out of a plane is a fantastic rush, better than some of your worse sex, I would say. I wouldn't mind doing it again, its been years since I did it, and I have a feeling that I might not enjoy it as much, not be mention that I would be scared of snapping my legs, and jumping out of a civillian plane would feel a little like playing paint ball or something.

On the way home, grab a box from Gutherie's and some herby-balls (if Herbie's was still open).  Gotta love Athens in the Fall.

I've got a growing list I started a few years ago and here are 5 of my favorites 1. Own (or atleast drive) a Ferrari 2. Move to Paris 3. Run with the Bulls in Pamplona 4. Get published 5. Learn 3 languages (or more) If all goes as planned I will move to Paris for a couple of years after the summer and I'm already working on one of my languages.
