PEOPLE ARE AWESOME

by Zona



Wow..this video is amazing..as are the athletes in it! I couldn't have done any of these things..even when I was young and in good shape!! My friends used to always ask me to go skydiving, skiing or hang gliding with them...yeah..I can see me doing that!! First I need to learn how to walk without tripping!! I'm probably stating the obvious here..but no extreme sports for me..unless they're on TV!  ;D

Michael said...

hahaha!! OH HOW THE MIGHTY HAVE FALLEN!!!!

I...fittingly...an the prettiest!!!

Michael said...

the scenery was real nice in the video...all those guys were really moving to fast for me to check for hot bods and calves...

Zona....its great that you realize that extreme sports would not be a good thing for you...although skydiving in tandem would be something I would feel safe knowing that you were doing and it is certainly exciting.

I love to watch these people who push the envelope but I am always afraid of something going wrong...

I read about and saw the video of Sarah Burke and her wedding and husband. A senseless tragedy seemingly...so sad for her husband....but she loved what she did...and was great at it...

Just_Lin said...

Michael Oh, I see you are prettiest by two minutes. Congrats to you for being the earliest bird today. I like the avatar. :)

Just_Lin said...

Tina You're still pretty, too, especially with that award in your hand.

Zona It seems us human beings keep trying to fly, one way or the other. I wouldn't be brave enough to do any of them. Of course, my age now gives me self-imposed limits, anyway. Yes, I could jump out of an airplane but don't plan on doing such a silly thing any time soon.

Good afternoon everyone ----zona, I think I will try the same sport u do----walking!!!! I'm happy for a day of that without any tumbles.

Michael-- I will be there from feb 23 thru about march 10. Any chance of meeting for lunch?

Hi JL---so u wouldn't be afraid to jump out of a plane? I would never but it does look fun.

Tina--Louis an I r going to see that movie this afternoon and then Red Tails on Saturday night.

Afternoon Glories!

Zona I have been white water rafting the first time was fantastic the second time was a very scary deal and I have not gone since. It takes a person with zero fear to do these sports.

Michael I love you avatar!

Not much going on here had a rousing day of laundry and cleaning the bathrooms. God I live an amazing life.

Waving at everyone!

Evening Michael, Tina, Just Lin, Dianne and Lynn D!

I really don't know what the big deal is about the video...I do this sort of thing all the time, I just didn't want to brag about it!

Had another hectic day at the office today. I even did 4 tax returns and we can't even write cheques yet! They knew that though before they came in, they just wanted to know how much they were getting back. I'm sure they will be in first thing Monday morning for their cheques. I'm off to bed now. We have to go into the office again tomorrow for a few hours and then we don't have to go in until Monday. Then it will be three hectic, tiring months. I will try to pop in as often as I can. Don't forget me! Nighty night!!

Shirley(NCC-1701) said...

BTW are all the sick people better now? Can I take off my hazmat suit?

Maureen said...

Good evening feathered friends!

Michael said...

Michael said...

Dianne...

Zona said...

Hi Guys!

Thanks for the comments today..glad you liked the video..I thought it was pretty cool.

MICHAEL: Not only aren't extreme sports a good thing for me to do..sometimes they aren't even a good thing for me to watch..I worry about something going wrong too..I do a lot of cringing and breath holding when I watch this kind of stuff..I did notice that some of the clips don't show landings..I assume those didn't turn out very good for the athlete.

TINA: Which extreme sport is your favorite? ;D

J/LIN: I won't even jump into the pool..I walk in slowly..and then slip on the bottom step and crash..happens so often I should just fall in to start with.. ;D

DI: I didn't know there was such a thing as a day without tumbles.. ;D

LYNN: My cousin loves this kind of stuff..he was out riding his atv alone in the desert and crashed..broke his leg..and had to crawl to the road..he was upset the atv got wrecked..didn't phase him at all that he got hurt. He was back racing muscle cars as soon as he healed..

SHIRLEY: Forget you? Not a chance! :)

MO: Funny thing is..that's true!! :D

Zona said...

MO: I do get daring once in a while and sox slide..that's pretty extreme.. ;D

MICHAEL: No tandem skydiving..how about tandem sox sliding? :D

In fact..I think I'll try that now..

Have a good night everyone! :)

Maureen said...

OMG...remember the blag about dirty minds and I flunked? I think I passed the make-up exam...

ZONA...I read your comment to MICHAEL to read as...

...tandem SEX sliding!!!

OMG

Just_Lin said...

MO LOL @ tandem sex sliding. My imagination is running wild with that one!

Just_Lin said...

LynnD Hell, yeah, I'd be afraid!!!

Just_Lin said...

Shirley Sounds like you're getting back in the swing of things. Of course we won't forget you. How could we? We'll keep a branch warm for you.
