  • Here's just a random sampling of things I'm afraid of. I got to thinking about it after watching the ABC Nightly News.

    Great White Sharks at the Jersey Shore
    Tectonic Plates
    The Witch from the Wizard of Oz
    Nuclear Weapons
    Ebola or any type of skin eating disease
    Fingernails on a chalkboard
    Bott Flies
    Desperate People with Guns
    Westboro Baptist Church

    Most of all, I'm afraid of running out of the time, money or health to do all I want to do before I die. Maybe tonight I'll just sit in my garden instead.
