  1. Wow, great list! Like you I’ve never broken a bone, thankfully. But I have sang a solo! The first time was age 7 – “Away in a Manger” in the Christmas Program at church. Next? Age 47 – also in church. They’re an easy crowd 🙂

  2. Okay, I’ll tell you some that I’ve done, which you haven’t.
    Been in a movie: An extra in Harper Valley PTA when I was in high school
    Sold Girl Scout Cookies: And now I eat a lot of them.
    I saved my favorite childhood stuffed animal Grover from Sesame Street, although the boys in the dorm scratched his eyes off.
    Things I haven’t done that I want to do: Publish a book.

  3. What a great list! Lots of overlap there, and you’ve done some I haven’t and vice versa. But I am definitely 100% with you on no sky diving. Just thinking about it gives me the willies.

  4. Interesting! You’ve done lots in your life and I know you have lots more to do! Boxes again (previous post). Are you moving? I missed that!

  5. I love these lists. It lets you learn so much about people that you otherwise might never know.
    I just might steal the list and try it myself.
    Happy moving day! Take it easy and don’t work too hard.

  6. I’m with you on much of your list!

    Sky diving never – but I did ride in that helicopter in Africa last year, that took bravery on my part as I’d always said I’d never do that. Amazing what one does when there is no alternative choice available!

    Coming this year, another amazing trip planned, perhaps even wilder than Africa – more on that later.

    Wish I could help you with all that packing up – ahh Provence, such a beautiful place.
