Thanks, that's a great idea!

Things to do...
A fabulous idea, and a fabulous list so far. Here are a few other idea to possibly add on:

-Run a 5k/half marathon/marathon.
-Knit/sew dog sweaters to donate to Best Friends.
-Be a bone marrow donor (if not one already).
-Start to learn a musical instrument (harmonicas are easy, and easy to carry along).
-Do something that scares you.
-Try something you always thought was 'too hard'and just not something you could do. (for example, I'm taking the algebra CLEP, because I always thought I wasn't a math person)
-Get your passport and travel to a foreign country.
-Learn some useful Latin phrases you can sprinkle into conversation when needing that extra UMPH...(Canis meus id comedit--my dog ate it; Appareo Decet Nihil Munditia? - Is It Not Nifty?; and my personal favorite: Cave canem, te necet lingendo - Beware of the dog, he may lick you to death)
-Give a public speech.

By the way, Orca-Dawg says hello, and to please extend his nose bops to Miss Mina :)

Re: Things to do...
*waves* We (me, mainly) send Orca-Dawg a lot of kisses. Mina sends nose bops back and Celeste is too busy chasing imaginary squirrels to make any sort of comment. :)

I love the Latin phrase idea! I also like the try something "too hard"...I'll have to figure that one out but I'm going to put it in and flesh it out later.
