Almost There

80. I’m actually bummed about the jury duty thing, because I have the time and the interest. Can you volunteer for jury duty?

81. There are some songs that need to be listened to at top volume: "Edge of Seventeen" by Stevie Nicks. Led Zeppelin’s "Stairway to Heaven." "Crazy On You" by Heart. Derek and the Dominoes’ "Layla.."

82. I haven’t found it a hardship to give up McDonald’s for the sake of my diet.

83. Urns with ashes of three cats occupy a basket in my family room.

84. I’ve learned to like West Coast pizza, but I really miss Chicago pizza. An entirely different animal.

85. Zoos make me sad, no matter how well-treated the animals are.

86. I love John Denver. Saw him in concert three times. Was really bummed when he died.

87. I used to play the guitar. Lots of John Denver, Simon and Garfunkel, Beatles, Joni Mitchell…and for awhile, song service at church.

88. I sang in a church choir for a very short period of time. They didn’t kick me out—we left the church.

89. I love music, love to sing, wish I could make a living at it. I can carry a tune, even pleasantly, but I don’t have the talent to do it for a living.


  1. "Edge of Seventeen" is one of the greatest songs ever!!!

  2. 80: You could, but you'd be automatically disqualified on the question of mental competency.

    81: I always had to blast "Heartache Tonight", "HELP!" and "I Will Survive." I think I still do, although it doesn't actually sound loud anymore...

    84: there is no such thing as West Coast pizza. Period. :(
