#26 - explanation??
#91 - who did you meet?

Tony said...

Well...#26, in jr. high school in a swimming pool in Sun Valley Idaho - there were no boys around. Also in college in the swimming pool at our apt. complex with some roommates (which when I think about it was pretty daring even though it was very dark...not something you'd think BYU co-eds would be up to) - also, several times since then which I probably will not elaborate on except to say that occasionally this might occur in the privacy of my backyard.

GADS! the computer is signed in as Tony Wheat because Shannon was just here using it - but it's ME, Bandanamom!

Also, Famous person - I've seen or run into a lot of famous people, most recently purchasing Converse with Alice Cooper, grocery shopped with Sissy Spacek and Jessica Lange (same grocery store, different occasions), done aerobics with Jimmy Osmond - also parked next to him several times at BYU, been in an elevator with Jerry Lewis, ate dinner back to back with Mike Tyson and almost ran smack dab into Wee Man from Jackson. But I only really 'met' John Grisham, when I babysat his kid for a litte while when we lived in Virginia (his kid was friends with my boss' kid).
