  2. It looks like you’ve already accomplished quite a lot. Some of those things, I don’t think I’d want to try…

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and yours, Jama! I’m grateful for you and your blog entries– everyday, you treat us to mental and visual feasts. xo

    Wow, you’ve done a lot!! You don’t have a cell phone, either? I thought I was the only one.

    Also, can’t believe you haven’t met at least one famous person.

  4. I agree. There are quite a few I wouldn’t want to try — the daredevil things, mostly.

    Happy Thanksgiving to you, too! And thanks for all the wisdom, insight, and generosity you share via your blog :)!

    I checked off number 98. I own a cell phone. I was a reluctant hold-out. And still leave it in my car most of the time. But I succumbed.

    I guess I should check off famous person, too. I did meet Penn Gillette before he was as a famous as he is now. (Who? you say) He played my bass guitar and sang an original song about wearing “dead people’s clothes” bought at an estate sale.

  7. Re: Things I’ve done:

    I’m impressed with your list! Read the entire Bible? Been on a speeding motorcycle? Plus singing a solo and karaoke? Hidden talents! You’ve got one fabulous thing for each year you’ve been alive. So you slacked off one year🙂 . . . I’d say you’re off to a great start!

  8. This is the third time I’ve seen someone do this list so far … and every single person has highlighted #16. Yikes!
    I’m okay with never experiencing that one!
    (I’ll pass on #46 and #75 too.)

  9. How is it, my dear, that you have avoided getting a cell phone??? I rarely carry mine and almost always have it turned off, but my husband made me get one. Lucky you without it!

    And how has a book lover like yourself not joined a book club?

    As for the lots of living to do, all the travel on your list and sites seen tells me you’ve done a lot of living! And frankly, I’d love to avoid some of these things!

    Thanks for playing along.

  10. I’m not a phone person to begin with. I know cells are indispensable when it comes to emergencies, etc., and part of me says I should get one, but . . . right now, I can’t justify the expense. I’m a hermit anyway, and our land line suits me fine.

    I might have joined a book club in the past, but don’t think I ever stuck with it, so I didn’t check it off. I guess I’m not good at reading to schedule.
