Question Who would you invite?

If you could have dinner with a famous deceased person , who would it be and why?

I would love to have dinner with Abraham Lincoln. I have always admired him. I would love to know the real man. I have heard so many conflicting stories about him, both good and bad.


Every day is precious.

Jack the Ripper.

OK, OK, I'd have to pick the menu.

And no steak knives on the table.

But then I would know who he was.

Theodore Roosevelt or Gifford Pinchot. Roosevelt because he had alot to do with preserving our national parks and forests. Pinchot was the first chief of the Uited States Forest Service.

Author Erma Bombeck, her books are so funny and so true. She wrote-

A Marriage Made in Heaven or Too Tired for an Affair

When You Look Like Your Passport Photo, It's Time To Go Home

I Lost Everything in the Post-Natal Depression

The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank

Among others.
This is one of her quotes
"My second favorite household chore is ironing. My first being hitting my head on the top bunk bed until I faint."

Imagine, a 16 year old girl walking halfway across the continent. And she had a baby in the middle of the trip!

I just haven't been the same
since that house fell on my sister.
