Fun to read. I think zip-lining definitely counts!

Brad'll Do It:

Wow! The trumpet.. me too (and self-taught trombone, for about a year). How long did you play it? Do you subscribe to the theory that trumpet players are better kissers?

Haven't been to Hawaii? That's a surprise as it's a very beautiful place (or, more accurately, "places"), and pretty accessible from the U.S.

Which of what you haven't done would you really like to do?

Deborah responds: LOL, Brad! Actually, it was Jr. Hi band. I hated it. And I quite BECAUSE of that ugly red ring the mouthpiece left on my lips!
I can't pick just one. But I would say ALL of the ones that involve travel. ;-)

Cool list. Where did you zip-line?

Deborah responds: In the Santa Elana Cloud Forest near Monteverde in Costa Rica. A picture of me ziplinning used to be my header picture on this blog. Maybe I should change it back.


Great list, Deborah! What do you mean you have not done skinny dipping? You hooch making diva and zip lining risk taker you? LOL.


wow, you have done a lot of these of things! I love your header photo, by the way. Very cool.

Deborah responds: Thanks, Anne. That is the top of Mt. Lovcen in Montenegro. It is at the sight of the tomb of Montenegro's national hero.

Great list! You have done a lot. I am impressed. You haven't missed anything watching a lightening storm by sea. It is pretty scary.
