Okay, a couple of these I fudged a bit on. While I can't really drive a stick shift, I have attempted to learn. I'm just not very good at it. I haven't actually ridden in a gondola, but have been in a water taxi. Not quite as romantic.

I guess 47 isn't bad. Some of these things I never want to do--no matter what! Others I was intrigued by and would like to attempt. How's your list compare? Oh, and thanks, Tamara, for the idea!

That is so funny that we have the same thing on our blogs, but a few have been changed. Very funny. I thought it was fun to do and it brought back a lot of fun memories.

What a GREAT list!
Love, Love, Love, it!!

Thanks for sharing your Slacker Cook recipe for Vegetable Soup. You're one of "my kind". I'm always looking for a better, easier, slacker way to do things - that leaves more time to play!!
Thanks for your comments on my Blog...I wanted to sign on as a Follower of your Blog but couldn't find the place on your page to do that. ???
