Debbie grabbed a few friends and constructed a Before I Die wall at Center for Spiritual Living San José. Here she is on its inaugural day. 

Come down and add your thoughts. Or, you can add your thoughts here. 

Before I die, I want to...

timeless advice

Al Kramer was 94 years old when he offered this advice about longevity:

1. Wear Sunscreen.

2. Floss.

3. Get pedicures.

The woman in the photo is Vicky. She works at Grand Nails in Oakland and I have a date with her every two weeks.

I'm a good student - check!

keep it simple

We went on a hot air balloon ride for mauricio's birthday, and watching the setup of the balloons was as fun as the ride itself.

Try it, you'll like it.

what if you don't have a shopping cart?

I was at the laundromat washing some large bedding when I saw something that shed insight to an unasked question...

"If you're homeless and you don't have a shopping cart, where do you store your stuff during the day?"

The answer: in an unused dryer at the laundromat. 

Now it all makes sense. 

Case ... er ... dryer closed.
