  1. Whoa you have had one adventurous life.Awesome things about you.Nice to have got this peep into your life.

  2. Hi Nick ~~ You sure have had a wonderful and varied life and tried a lot of different things. I hope it has been mostly a happy life. Take care,

  3. Quite the list.

    I've swam, (swum?), with wild dolphins, just by being in the right place at the right time. An incredible experience.

  4. Those things you've done are neat. Did you dye your beard when you dyed your hair?

  5. what did fried green tomatoes taste like?

    and if I ever actually get to visit you, after we go out for cheeseburgers, we are getting you a tattoo :)

  6. dang, Nick! you've been busy!

    very cool dude, you are :)

  7. EDUCATEDUNDEREMPLOYED: It’s been nice to pack some adventures into my 60 years. Of course, I look forward to more adventures before my end.

    MERLE: Life’s been good to me—even when I grumble about it!

    LIMPY: I covet your swimming with dolphins. It must have been great.

    I suppose that’s what life is all about: being in the right—or wrong—place at the right—or wrong—time. Of course, it is how we interpret where we are at any given moment that is what is most important!

    ABBY: Yes, I dyed my beard when I dyed my hair. That was an experience I shall never repeat!

    SONG: Fired green tomatoes tasted kinda like, uh, fried green peppers!

    When—not if, but when—you visit me we’ll do a whole like more, like betting on that winning horse that you’ve yet bet on. Maybe we’ll even take a two-day drive to Austin! And beyond! I love road trips and would truly enjoy sharing North American geography with you.

    LITTLE SISTER: I hope I’ve done something in 60 years! And remember, those are only the things listed on that list!
