Another Cool Thing

Once, a long time ago...I posted One Cool Thing about my adventure with the Amish.

Reflecting on my life, it seems to be very "normal" and average, but every now and again, something pretty darn cool comes along.

Like what, you might wonder? Well, soon as I said that, I stumped myself. Here are some cool things I have done or are part of who I am:

Climbed Mayan pyramids (do it once, not twelve times!).
Ridden an elephant.
Been in a submerged, moving submarine.

Met an amazing amount of celebrities... I don't even know why... here are some: Jack Nicholson, Davy Jones (oh yeah, that one! - Mickey Dolenz, too), Wayne Rogers, Lyle Lovett, Dr. Phil, Carly Simon, Shirley McLaine, Eartha Kitt, Dusty Hill (ZZ Top), and more...

Burned down a house and learned how to put it out from some volunteer firefighters.
Made candy from maple syrup tapped right out of a tree.
Am a seventh generation Texan on one side and 2nd generation American on the other (Cayman Islands).

Made a record (yes, a vinyl one) with a small group of people. We won't discuss that.

Spent the night in the "House of the Rising Sun" and I don't even like that song.

I can take you to the nose cone of the Hindenburg... oh yeah, it's in a neighborhood not far from me - basically hanging like a birdbath.

What about you??

HA! I met Marsha Brady (whatever her real name is) and Ted Kennedy! Well, they walked past me in a stadium once.
Dang, looking at your list? You're pretty darn cool Lynda.

You are Caymanian? Pretty cool. My daughters think we should move to Grand Cayman...permanently! I'm seriously jealous that you've met Shirley McLaine and Jack Nicholson. I love them in Terms of Endearment!

I guess I'm just not cool. I have done nothing to compare with those. I'll have to think of some cool things and post on my blog when I get back home.
