  4. This is fun! You were on the Bozo show? How cool. I've never been on a cruise or scuba dived (dove?) yet either- so annoying. :)

    You're braver than me- I would never jump out a plane lol.

  6. What a fun way to get to know more about you, Bea! I love that you are adventurous enough to jump out of a plane. (I'm too scared of heights.) Sounds like there are some stories behind some of these, too. ;-)
