Visit my son where he works (he's a doctor) and see his cath lab - which I did in November 2008.

And I had a couple of other ideas - some of which I've done already that were on my list, some of which I will be doing (I have planned) and maybe some I might never get to do - but it sure is fun to dream.

Love, Chatty

What a post! Cool beans!
Love the pics of Andy in the snow...

1. Ride in a horse drawn sleigh, once before I die.

2.Ride a horse on a beach, at sunset. I'd need a crane to get up on one now....

3. Visit Cape Cod, Martha's Vineyard, Nantucket. (My daughter is taking me to one of these when I turn 60 she says.)

4.) I'd love to experience a litter of corgi pups.

5.) Publish a a children's book, with a corgi theme.

6.) See my son in a circle of friends, that would care for him, and enrich his life. Have his ears healed so his hearing could be saved, and those darn hearing aides wouldn't be needed.

Much much more...just need more thought! Great, great post!

Corgi Dog Moma,

I love those - send more if you think of them. This is so much fun and a great way to find out about others.

I'd love to go to Martha's Vineyard too!

What a nice desire for your son - miracles do happen - I believe that.
