Cool answers. I envy your eyesight. I've had to have glasses or contacts since I was ten. I hate heights, too.

It's something with my meds. All of a sudden I could see again. It was weird. But I still need readers. Can't read close up without them.

Heights, the thought makes me shiver. Rod and I went to The Grand Canyon and I had an anxiety attack like no other and my IBS kicked in. I was a mess. I was so sick afterwards and Rod wondered what he was thinking taking me to the Grand Canyon. And no one watches their kids. EEEEEkkkk. Kids kept slipping around the edges and I just knew they were going to go over. It was horrible.

Oh, man, {{{{Hugs}}}}

I'm so with you on the Grand Canyon. I'm not interested in looking over the edge of that monster hole in the ground, thanks. And, yeah, parents let their kids way to close to the edge and don't watch. It's like when kids fall into the pits at zoos despite being warned not let the kids get up on the walls.

I live by a creek and when I first moved here, the neighborhood had a lot more young kids than they do now. The "creek" is really a river run off/reservoir, and while it's looks okay, it's obviously full of dirty water. It's got tall banks and it's very slippery and snaky back there. I'm talking water moccasin, not just harmless water or black snakes. I'd see kids, from about 3-12, going down there to not just fish, but to actually jump in and swim!!!! There are signs posted for no swimming, but parents either didn't care or didn't watch their kids enough to keep them out of it. It was nerve wracking. I just knew some kid was going to drown, get snake bitten, or get tetanus or some other deadly disease. Heavy sigh. Luckily, that seems to have stopped in the last ten years.

I'm sorry that was such a terrible experience. I know some people love it, but I'd probably have been in the same shape you were.

Oh my gosh, I would have had an anxiety attack every time those kids went near the wash. How scary. People don't watch their kids much, I've noticed. Heck, I've noticed it sometimes with my kids and the grandkids. I think I"m a Nervous Nellie.

It's almost someone's birthday. Hurray. :)

Then we're both nervous Nellies. For me that comes from years of teaching and realizing that kids can damage themselves so quickly. It's a lot easier to just keep an eye out for danger first than worry about them after they've already fallen or jumped into danger. Wonder if this was how Jim felt all the time. Being a Protector constantly would be hard.

Yep, today I'm 63. I slept in and I'm going to treat myself to a lazy day.

I have no bother at all with heights, but there are two things you couldn't pay me enough to do - a) bungee jump and b) go on a roller coaster.

Oh, and I don't untie my shoes - because they fasten with velcro...

Now what's really strange about me, oh shush, I know you're laughing already, is the fact that I have a fear of heights, but adore roller coasters. I can't go on them enough. The higher, the better. They scare the crap out of me, but make me laugh at the same time. I'm probably just hysterical. *grin* But Bungee jumping would not be fun to me at all.

I just read the part about I don't untie my shoes and I wondered what in the world you were talking about. LOL Then I remembered, the meme. God, I'm a spaz. I wear flip flops ten months out of the year, so I don't untie much either. :)
