At the risk of potentially irking some members:

1. Noah, the ribbing he must have gotten during the 120 year Ark project.

2. Daniel, get his thoughts just before being tossed into the lion's den. Then while he spent the night there and wasn't an appetizer.

3. Shad..., Mish...., Abednigo, their thoughts just before being tossed into the furnace. Were they surprised when person #4 showed up? What did He say?

4. Adam & Eve, just what were you thinking!?

5. Salomon, stated as being the wisest man to have ever lived.

And, because someone might mention it, God isn't missing from the list. You can talk with Him anytime you want. But I do look forward to the face to face conversation.

After Father, Grandfather there is only one Dean Martin baby, ring-a-ding!
And if he ever could get through all his stories I would keep Chuck Yeager as my phone a friend.

You said 5 ... JC Watts.

My dad and best friend who just passed away on 11/2 and his courage facing death as well as unique humor and his concern and love for the family he created above all even with his failing health. We joked and laughed right to the end.

1) My father- he passed away 40 years ago ( a week to the day after JFK was killed). I was too young to remember him....

2) My grandfather- he passed on in '79 and filled my dad's shoes the best he could. The strongest, hardest working, and most honest man I have known to this day.

3) Chuck Yaeger- he has pushed the limit his entire life doing things others only dream about.

4) Vince Lombardi- probably one of the greatest motivators of men we will ever see on this planet.

5) A toss-up between Jack Nicholson and Al Pacino- two incredible actors.......

I could go on.....

Oh, and I do talk to God a little every day

Ayn Rand???????

Ayn. a brilliant mind, did not suffer fools gladly..............

Don would be surprisingly blunt...and egotistical

Peter is only a phone call away....but you need to have something of interest to talk about

Art Carlson...?
