Look who's coming to dinner

Suppose you are hosting a dinner for 5. Who would you invite (Other than Jesus...that's too much of a slam dunk). Here are todays guests in no particular order:

1. Bono. Great music. Has a passion for just causes. Seems interesting in general.
2. My Mothers Father, when he was in his early 20's. I never got to really meet him.
3. Gerald Ford. Adopted. Athlete. Statesman. A former client was one of his bodyguards..said he was a genuine and honorable fellow.
4. Dick Winters. Band of Brothers veteran. Leadership under pressure.

Any other takers?

A few weekends ago Benny and I tagged along with the Robinsons for a wonderful hike. Check out their link on the right side for some more pics. I'm looking forward to the day Benny and I can hike in Colorful Colorado.

My five TODAY would be
1-My father he died when I was ten and because of WW11 and a divorce we lost a lot of the ten years we had.
2-President Truman a boot strap type of man, decison maker,proud of his wife and daughter.
3-Jackie Robinson, he changed the color of baseball.
4-Bob Hope he would give us laughs and keep it clean.
5-My grandpa Ramsey the kindest and gentlest man that ever lived.

This is my kind of question!
I have enjoyed reading your blog - I'm a friend of the Basshams. So I hope you don't mind if I answer. I would arrange my guest list to make the most interesting conversation possible, so here's one possible arrangement:
1. Bill Cosby
2. Condoleeza Rice
3. Abraham Lincoln
4. Jesse Jackson

And here's another:
1. C.S. Lewis
2. Oscar Wilde
3. Phillip Pullman
4. Flannery O'Connor
