OH THE PLACES YOU’LL SEE! SHARE YOUR WORLD 24 – 2015

SHARE YOUR WORLD – 2015 WEEK #24

What’s your favorite charitable cause and why?  

I don’t have a charity, per se, though I do occasionally send a few dollars to the Durrell Foundation where they breed endangered species on the Isle of Jersey, or one of the wolf refuges.

I will give money, when I can, to friends who are in trouble — and for whom a little bit of cash may make a big difference. When we were in trouble, friends helped us. If they hadn’t, we would be homeless.

And, because when just plain people are in trouble, unless they have a family with resources, there is nowhere to turn. Charitable foundations never seem to give any money to regular people. Why is that?

What color do you feel most comfortable wearing?  

Black, but I look better in other strong colors. I looked good in black when I was younger.

I’m sort of in the habit of “black,” as it were.

If you had your own talk show, who would your first three guests be? (guest can be dead, alive, famous or someone you just know).

Douglas Adams. Dead, but far from forgotten.

Mel Brooks, because he’s the funniest man in the world.

Marlene Dietrich, because she was so much more than she appeared.

Charlie Chaplin, because he was one of the good guys and we owe him so much.

Doc Holliday, because he was a unique character and I have a lot of questions. NOTE: Make sure he wears a mask so I won’t catch tuberculosis.

List:  What are at least five places you’ve enjoyed visiting?

Tombstone, Arizona.

Dusty Streets of Tombstone

Jerusalem, Israel.

Dublin, Ireland.

San Francisco, California.

  1. Mine is Dearborn Wolf Sanctuary (and thank you) and Project Wildlife locally (they are hands on and do a great job). I used to donate to all the big ones including Peta, Defenders of Wildlife, and Sierra Club, but I don’t like to support big salaries no matter how much good they do, so I give what I can to the angels who work directly with animals. Great post as usual!

  3. Really thought chewy post. Memorable places visited (that I’d love to revisit); Ireland, Paris & Champagne Country, Israel (in a 1980’s time capsule), Rome, Scotland and, of course, Tombstone.
    Talk show guests: Mel Brooks, Jonathan Winters, Billy Crystal, Robin Williams, Jack Benny, George Burns and Johnny Carson to run things. Judy Collins would be my guest singer and James Garner my friendly sidekick.

  5. Gosh I hadn’t thought of Tombstone in ages. I was there when I was 15 or 16. 😀 Thanks Marilyn for sharing.

    • Cool place, yes? Like a theme park, but without the entry fee. If it hadn’t been 124 degrees, we’d have gotten even MORE into it, but they weren’t letting the horses do more than walk empty coaches through the street. Too hot!
