Posted at 18:02pm on 25th September 2008

DAVE FREEMAN'S BOOK 100 THINGS TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE.

This Competition was prompted by the author's death at the age of 47.

Thank you to those of you who have left comments on the FIVE THINGS YOU’D LIKE TO DO BEFORE YOU DIE. They make interesting reading. If you haven’t seen them, follow the links to Competition Day 14 – Thin Thighs and from there the links to the previous Post. It would help me enormously if you’d leave a comment letting me know which you find the most original and philosophical.

COUNTING DOWN: ONLY 5 DAYS TO GO.

MY LIST STARTS HERE – AND WILL FINISH ON 30TH SEPTEMBER:

  • 1. I’d like to go to India before I die. My father used to talk to me when I was a child, of how he, and some other RAF pilots during the war, used to feed the starving children on the streets of Calcutta on a daily basis. To begin with they gave money. But that had to stop because adults took it from the children. So they bought food and watched the kids eat it. Eventually the police had to stop them doing that, too, because there were so many it started a riot.
  • 2. I’d like to HEAR FROM SOME OF YOU BEFORE I DIE!
  • 3. I believe (hope!) that I’m gonna get a new body when I die. I like to think it’s gonna be one with thin thighs. But – if I have the misfortune to have some sort of wasting disease before then – well, I’d love to have thin thighs right now.
  • 4. All the F’s. Forgiveness, Faith and trust for my Family, and an end to a Family Feud.
