Some Been There, Done That & Not

I caught a chameleon in Saudi Arabia.
I have eaten pizza in Greece.
I drank cappuccino in Italy and coconut juice in Malaysia.
I have visited the Mauna Kea Observatory.
I jet skied in Papua New Guinea.
I saw the battlefields of Virginia.
I shot an AK-47 in Pennsylvannia.
I road Space Mountain in Florida.
I bought a rug in Tijuana.
I have ridden the subway in New York.
I have had my haircut in Hong Kong.
I have seen where Shakespeare lived and Robin Hood's domain.
I have watched Colin Raye, Alan Jackson, and Bon Jovi in concert.
I saw a beluga whale in Washington.
I have ridden a camel in Saudi Arabia, an elephant in Thailand, and horse in Egypt (and gotten thrown in Canada).

I have not seen Garth Brooks in concert.
I have not skiied (water nor snow).
I have not sky dived.
I have not learned how to drive a motorcycle or a stick shift.
I have not published a book or even written my name in snow.
I have not dyed my hair with koolaid.
I have not visited Japan (but I have been inside the airport).

I started this list because I did not know what to write about today. But as I wrote I discovered I have done a good number of things. Different things. I guess it shows me that my life has indeed been rich with experiences. I am full of "haves".

Remember your haves.

I will try to do that more often! Great thought.


Are you going to check all of the things off your have not list? Will you do them one day?

I saw the battlefield where
Custer died. Does that count? I sat next to a guy on a plane that was carrying lava rock from the Big Island to Oahu...crazy haole! I rode a horse in Montana and was scared shitless! I have been to a number of concerts. However, at my last one, I've never seen so many girls flashing boobs or panties. Country concerts are the coolest. I have not, nor ever will go skiing or sky diving. I have gone scuba diving in Honduras. I have been backstage at a cirq de soleil (spelling?) as an acrobat tried to impress my friend. What a freak!

It all counts and it's all good! I don't have a list to check off so to speak, but these are all on the top if I did have a list (except for the name in snow thing).

The Garth Brooks in concert solely depends on if Garth does another concert and if I hear about it in time. If so, I am there whether it be in LA, NYC, or Timbuktu. It has been a good ride!
