A. 7 things to do before I die

1. Get up the nerve to ask the current occupants of the first house I remember living in to allow me inside for a walk down memory lane. My last time inside was May, 1963.
2. Drink a 64-ounce Margarita
3. Visit Israel
4. Take a tour of my elementary school, which I was last inside in around 1972.
5. Work out some family misunderstandings
6. Tour Germany, where most of my ancestors came from.
7. Acquire an organizational system that will help me remember where I left my keys, wallet, cell phone, etc.

B. 7 things I can't do.
1. Touch my nose with my tongue -- I have a brother who can and I've always been envious -- why, I don't know.
2. Type on a typewriter.
3. Spell that words that means when you have the "runs." I've studied the word but it doesn't stick in my head. Well, who wants to write about that topic anyway.
4. Parallel park -- unless there are about two football fields inbetween the cars.
5. Read music. (I can correspond notes in sheet music to keys on the piano, but if I just look at the sheet music, I have no idea what the music is supposed to sound like.)
