'cause I live and breathe this Philadelphia freedom...

I wasn't allowed to go anywhere on July 4, 1976. Too dangerous, dontcha know. And if I could have gone anywhere I wanted? I would've been at that concert. Hands down.

That's so cool. Did he end up coming?

Nope, he'd already committed somewhere else. But I've got a copy of the letter declining the invite on one of the pages in my yearbook. :)

5. Dated a guy who operated the "boom" (the long, hose-like arm) in a KC-135 tanker plane.

6. Was in a huge crowd scene in the movie, "Nashville" and met actor Keenan Wynn (ok, I was 9 years old at the time and had no idea what was going on or who he was, but still...)

7. Won $100 from a local radio station.

8. Had a "can't lose" morning in a Lake Tahoe casino.

Oooh, I forgot...

Bonus...

11. Went down an old gold mine shaft on a rickety "elevator" platform (I use the term "elevator" loosely: this "elevator" was lowered down the shaft by a huge crane) and toured some tunnels, one of which was so small that we couldn't stand up straight and had to crawl through certain parts.

One word: stupid. Two more words: Never again.
