Bragging rights
Have flown a Cessna over the Gulf of Mexico. Climbed 147 feet up a canyon wall in New Mexico to reach a ceremonial cave and kiva. Have seen the Rolling Stones in concert nine times (so far). Had an award-winning photo on the cover of Parade magazine. Volunteered as a keeper's aide in the Houston Zoo for two years, getting to know the orangutans quite well and spoonfeeding three of their babies. Have met Sally Field, Shirley MacLaine, Chuck Berry, Adam West, and several other celebrities in unusual ways. Once picked heather on the Scottish moors under the light of a full moon. Have crossed the crosswalk at Abbey Road. Went scuba diving 75 feet down at the shipwreck "Rhone" in the British Virgin Islands where they filmed the movie, "The Deep." Swam with dolphins in Florida.
