I've bounced a check more than once. I can't say that it's anything I would want to do if I hadn't though. LOL

You've done lots of things. I don't even have a passport but I tend to be way toooo much of a homebody lump.

Merry Christmas!

WOW! YOU UPDATED! You should tell me when you do these things!

Then you could add that to your list as #100.

Also, so far you're the only person I know who's said they'd bungee jump or sky dive. That should come as no surprise - you have flown in a stunt plane!
