I have met someone famous--F. Lee Bailey (was on the defense team for O. J. Simpson, for instance). In the course of my career, I had to pick him up at our local airport, took him to lunch, then to the appellate court where he was opposing counsel on one of our cases and was arguing opposite my boss before a panel of judges at the appellate court.
I've been in large crowds, but 100,000? I don't think more than 50,000 or so.
Have you ever known anyone who had a near death experience?

I've met F.Lee Baily also!!! Back in 1989 I think..here in Cali. He was defending a woman who put a "I'm a pig " sign on her daughter and made her wear it while walking in front of her house. The mom had tried everything to get the girl to clean her room..LOL Back then parents did that sort of thing..
I have met many famous people..sports stars..actors, agents, producers, major company owners, billionairs..Politians..My daughter..well, she was famous around Cali..LOL
I have been in Manhattan where it seemed as though the crowds were that many..probably not though..
Have you ever hiked somewhere?

I've hiked for pleasure--Rocky Mt. National Park, various places in Colorado, Smokey Mountains. Nowhere around where I live, though.
Okay, you've piqued my curiosity, Marlys. Who's your daughter? I'm just being nosy. Of course, you don't have to tell us.
Usually, people who are creative in more than one area. Do any of you have another talent (or talents) we don't know about?

Well, I haven't been here for the last week and I am way behind. I am just going to start from here.
I don't think I have any hidden talents. I do like to draw with oil pastals,
but, just for fun.
What were you doing in a crowd of 100,000 people Daniel?

I live in Daytona Beach and I have attened a couple races at the racetrack that holds 300,000 people. Traffic and walking around are both big issues durring race day.
My wife and I used to go every year back when we could afford it. Lately we only get to watch the races on TV but if we step outside we can see the GOODYEAR blimp hovering over the racetrack only 10 or so miles from where we live.
hidden talents.. I do play drums a bit but I don't think that is a talent, just a good way for me to enjoy myself without getting in anyones way. I like to draw but I mostly cartoonish characters.. I will have to think about it too see if I really do have any hidden talents and get back with you later on that one.
Have you ever gone half the day thinking it was a Wednesday only to find out it was still Tuesday?

I think everyone I know has done that before
regardless of their age.
I live in Bakersfield Calif. They are in the process of constructing a
new Nascar track here, due to open in March. It will be the largest one
this side of the Mississippi. They are building a large tunnel under it, so
that you can get from one side to the other, easier.

I have always thought you had many talents. You didn't have to meet a famous person, you raised several.
I saw a bumper stick a couple of days ago that said, I child proofed my
house, but they keep showing up anyway.
What is your new question?
Posted: Fri Nov 09, 2007 10:51 pm
I forgot LOL
have you ever given a eulogy
Posted: Fri Nov 09, 2007 11:07 pm
no, I'm not sure I could.
have you ever been with someone at the moment of death? (I haven't, but just a few minutes before)
Posted: Sat Nov 10, 2007 1:55 pm
I have written a eulogy for my mother-in-law but didn't read it myself.
I once saw someone murdered who was standing about 10 feet away from me but other than my pets, I have never been with them at the moment of their death.
Have you ever gotten completly thru watching a movie before you realized you have seen it before.
Posted: Sat Nov 10, 2007 2:16 pm
Yes, I have done that a couple of times with movies, ones that I hadn't seen in a while.
I watched a movie at my daughter's yesterday. It was called, Zoom, have you seen it before?
Posted: Sat Nov 10, 2007 6:27 pm
I looked it up on the internet and ZOOM starring Tim Allen looks funny.. but no, I have not seen it.
How long ago was the last time you attended a play?
Posted: Sat Nov 10, 2007 6:32 pm
Last Spring. I think it was in April.
When is the last time you attended a parade?
Posted: Sun Nov 11, 2007 2:31 pm
I saw a play in Las Vegas last year , I'm having a brain freeze..it was the one with Abba's music
I haven't been to a parade in years
I have been at an accident and held a woman right before the ambulance took her..she begge me not to leave her but they wouldn't let me go. I told her I would follow to the hospital and be with her. She passed on the way. I have always been haunted by that
Have you ever known someone who died and came back?
