PostSubject: Three dinner guests   Fri Oct 15, 2010 8:24 pm

We were just sitting around the dinner table and one of my daughters dropped the "If you could have dinner with any three people, who would they be?" question.

Living or dead, but must have lived in modern times. Amazingly (actually, sadly, not amazingly) all the young people at the table picked actors and actresses.

My picks were Albert Camus, George Carlin and John Steinbeck. Who would you pick?

And I know EJ's gonna pick 3 dead people cuz they don't eat much and the tab will be a lot less Laughing

Well P, the first two would be my Mom and Dad, man I sure do miss them, the last would be my friend Dave, he was a kind and gentle soul.

So why did you pick 3 dead people? tongue

Humm who would I pick??? Obama!,,,naah secret service nightmare.

I liked camos pick #2 Robin Williams, we would be laughing too hard to eat, it would probably take an hour to get through the menu.

I did like PD's choice of Steinbeck, just to chat about the changes in the world since he wrote Travels with Charlie.

Now one of my own would have to be the grandfather I never met as he died when my dad was 9. He was killed on Dec. 16 1944 which as some might recognise as the first day of the Battle of the Bulge. He was in the 28th infantry division, 109 infantry regiment who had just come out of the Hurtgen Forest after sustaining a very high casualty rate. The 28th was supposed to be taking a break.
He posthumusly received the Distinguished Service Cross for singlehandedly taking out a machine gun nest so his pinned down platoon could get out, he was then taken down by another machine-gunner. I would love to sit down to dinner and talk to him about everything.

It was done in the west coast back when we were Knoxers...

We tried to get a midwest deal going but someone sideshifted it to the Chicago Pipe Show and no one showed up..

My choices exactly but we'd have to include Jason (the founding father), sorry fellas but that's just the way it is. Although I'd like to meet most of you over a pipe full. And we'd have to go to Olympia of course! God's country. Piet can't pay, a rand doesn't calculate over here. Now if he could bring a grand, that's differnt. Say Jason, did you ever consider having a one time rendezvous for all us BoB's? Maybe in the center of the US? Like Wichita? I'll bring the paper plates!

Your right PB I forgot all about that meeting the westerners had. Lots of great smokes (cigars and Pipes) good drink and good food from what I remember reading in the posts.

I was all for a midwest meet up. But it is still not too late we could get one together if we wanted to.


Now back to the original post.

1. Ernest Hemingway
2. C S Lewis
3 Anna Nicohl Smith

Maybe I need to had a second dinner just for Anna

I think you wouldn't find the interest reciprocated, Falconer. You are the wrong sex, nowhere near good looking enough, and way too old.

J's idea of a good dinner guest is more along these lines:

Ooh, didn't even think of that. My old man died when I was eleven. To be honest, I don't think I'd pick him, would be too painful. Took me years to shake that off. I have enough grief in my life just trying to cope with what I've got I've got on my plate, and since I don't drink and dislike medication, I don't think I'd open that door. Better to deal with that in the great beyond where my coping ability would be up to snuff.

Sorry boys, had to delete that post. This isn't the rubber room and we can't have the nudie girls running up and down the hallways, goes against the forum hosts rules of decorum.

It would really depend on my mood. If i was in a good mood it would be: Bob Marley, Gandhi and Jesus. If I was in a bad mood it would be: Pol Pot, Hitler and Osama Bin Laden. If I was feeling musical it would be: Earl Scruggs, Jerry Garcia and Jimi Hendrix. If I were feeling smart it would be: Sir I. Newton, Leonardo and A. Einstein.

Puff Daddy is right. The line needs to be drawn on what's appropriate and what's not. I need to behave myself. We can have just as much fun and keep it clean. I'm glad BoB has these rules and sorry I wasn't wise enough stay within those limits. It won't happen again. Valky Embarassed
