For another meal:

My father who died when I was 23.

Buck's father. I never got to meet him. Only spoke to him on the phone once when Buck and I were dating.

My little sister who was a year younger than I. She died at birth. I was only a year old when she was born. I would love to "meet" her.

I will not state my parents whom I can only see again in my thoughts. Not because I would not love to see them once again. But because I will make this of more general interest, I hope.

Number one, Jack the Ripper. Merely because I would love to know who he was. Of course I guess we would have to use plastic cutlery, steak knives would be a no no.

Number two, Adolph Hitler. That may seem odd, but I would just like some insight into how someone who was so evil and profoundly disturbed could assume so much power and get so many people to do such horrible acts. Of course he was a vegetarian and number one, Jack, well, uh, was definitely not. So the menu might be a bit difficult. But let them argue about it.

Third Boudica, the Iceni queen who led her British tribe to so many devastating victories over the Romans. One tough lady she. But we know so little of her.

fourth, Ann Boleyn, number two wife to Henry VIII. She has always been a qiestion to me. Or if not available Cleopatra. Two apparently not all that stunning women who were able to attract the most powerful men of their times.

And number one and two need dinner dates after all.

This is tongue in cheek, but I like history and there are many aspects of each I would like to understand more about.

Great guests Aunt Dot these people would be really interesting.I would think if they could come back after dying they would really tell you why they were the way they were and did what they did.With no consequenses.

I always answer this question the same way, when I only get to choose one person: Jesus Christ.

But you let me have three, so I'll invite his mother, Mary, and my beloved, much-missed grandmother, too.

Nan and I have always had a WHOLE LOT of questions to ask those two!

Aunt Dot, I love your guest list! I'm fascinated by history too, especially wondering about the "blanks". The only way to really fill them in would be to actually talk to the history makers themselves. I often wonder how our world would change if we were able to verify and (inevitably correct) the historical accounts we have all grown up on.
