  1. Susan, this is a really neat and very insightful MeMe. I’m glad you stopped by my blog through Rhoda’s, and I’m equally glad to stop by yours. Sounds like you’ve led an interesting life. I’ve never made it to Paris and feel deprived, but I have made it through a lot of Great Britain. My cousin lives in Paris, and I keep thinking and hoping one day… I never bungee jumped, but I did fly around in some sort of anti-gravity thing in a demonstration at Space Camp when we went with a group to tour it. 😉 I always wanted to sky-dive (I had an old boyfriend who did), but I was invariably talked out of it… my mother flatly refused to allow it, and my husband later was very diapproving. So I didn’t. That’s one regret I will always have because skydiving looks absolutely awesome to me. I won’t do it now at this point in my life. LOL! I confess to watching videos on You-Tube, though. 🙂

    Nice to meet you! Thanks for sharing this about yourself.


    Sheila 🙂

  2. That’s a cool survey. Looks like you’ve led an interesting life and had a lot of fun. Glad you stopped by my blog so I found yours. Thanks for the encouraging words on my poem. I plan to try to write some more. I didn’t know that I wrote poems – lol. I’m just trying to “step outside the comfort zone” and experience things that I’ve not tried before. But, I’ll not be singing a solo. That’s a little too far out of the zone. I admire you for that one.

    Best wishes for a fantastic 2009!

  3. Oh, this was fun, glad to learn more about you. You’ve done a lot of traveling, eh? That sounds wonderful. I haven’t given up hope that I will someday, though! I have done more of these things than I would have thought. I wasn’t in a movie, but my dad was, and so was my uncle!
