Hail Mahal, renaissance woman :)

That is an amazing list!! you should be proud.

You are truly amazing... don't stop now!

Thanks for the giggles. Not feeling too amazing these days but your comment made me laugh and smile. :)

Glad I could give you that... hope you have a great day :)

You have a fascinating life.

Everything always sounds a lot better when you write it out..... :)

That's a great and diversified list.

Thank you. Writing this wasn't as easy as I thought it would be. You should write yours if you havent already. Im sure it will be a great read. :)

I once wrote a story about 100 things I hate about myself. That was easier than I thought. I'll contemplate your suggestion.

100 things you hate??? really?? Is it posted here?? I want to read it.

it was under my original screen name. Hikingman. The account was deleted and hundreds of tales were lost. Sorry.

Lots of impressive things on this list! I have to admit, number 40 actually made me feel all sappy...nice job!

Thanks Harbinger. #40 wasn't one of my better moments. I think I tried to handle it as diplomatically as I could. Maybe one of these days I will sit down and post a story about it.

I don't know exactly how you handled it, but just the fact that you would do that for your sister is awesome!

She's my baby sister....there's nothing I wouldn't do for her. I politely asked everyone to please step out of the room so that my siblings and I can have a private moment with our father. Most people saw how distraught and hysterical my sister got when they were ready to move my father. It took a little shoving to remove my mother out of the room though. She wasn't happy.

Fascinating...how do you choose the 50, randomly or in priority

I kept going back and forth. I had omitted some, added and changed a few then finally said it was a done deal and posted the story. Every time I see it I still want to change something but don't. :)

Following B here. Miss M you had had interesting times and how very brave of you to publish them here.<br />
<br />
love and peace<br />

BJC, any friend of B is a friend of mine. :) Thanks for reading my post.

Thanks and blessing to you.

I have a feeling you have a lot of great stories. It would be cool to hang with you for a day. Hopefully with a pier nearby. ;-)

Turning 20 shades red. :) Geetar, you are one of my favorite Epeeps that I would love to hang with. Wondering if I'd be rhyming at the end.

Your cool rating just went way, way higher for me.

Blushing... thank you.

Thank you Nudy. Like I said, I think its always cool learning new things you have in common with friends.

I think she's just getting warmed up.

CWS, lol!!!! Id love to read your list.

Thanks Sierra. I saw this group awhile ago and thought this should be a breeze to come up with. Then when you start writing its interesting what you end up keeping and omitting.

Wow.....You've done a LOT of great, fun and naughty things in your years....Awesome list!! I totally admire you!! ♥

Pretty cool list !!! I've been to a lot of the same places over the years on both coasts but I've always lived on the East coast. And I became a father at the same age......

Its always cool to know what other things you have in common with your friends. :)
