Here ya go Wanda. Show me how it’s done. (later) You did a great job! It’s all yours from now on.
Oh my golly – it’s me and my wife!
Just exactly how does that A1 sauce work?
Same here. I made my jumps before tandem jumping was invented, and I’m glad. I don’t think I would like to be glued to another person like that. My first five jumps were static line.
Landing with a parachute is akin to jumping off a 6 foot platform. It is still quite jarring. You are taught to fold your knees and roll forward.
For those who have never skydived, here’s my memory. Back in college I made about 12 jumps before I realized how expensive this hobby was and had to quit. The visual on tv and comics such as this is the jumper appears to be floating like a gentle leaf when he leaves the plane – slowly, gently, quietly, and serene. Not true at all! You are literally falling like a rock! Quickly and heavily – not serene at all. For the first few jumps until you get used to it – it IS terrifying.
Go ahead – if you spend $300 for a Christmas tree, you must be that guy with a lobotomy. Don’t know about the billionaire part.
Oh golly – my family had that silver tree with color wheel back in the 60s too – I guess pretty much everybody did. Part of me thinks I’d love to have that again, it brings back wonderful memories, and then part of me thinks, “nah”.
Good idea. My wife and I are empty nesters and frankly, decorating for Christmas just isn’t my thing. I keep asking if we could just put up a 2 or 3 foot artificial tree and be done with it, but Nooooo, she insists on the full monty.
OK, I’ll be the first to say it. $300 for a Christmas Tree? No where on this earth. Well, I guess you could price it any amount, but no one would buy it, except maybe a billionaire with a recent lobotomy.
