Hi Everyone.. Very Happy

If you could invite anyone for dinner, dead or alive
for a great dinner and great conversation, who would
it be ? I'll go first..

First off I would have prime ribs, baby red potatoes,
asparagus, good wine, brandy after woods. For desert
it would be baked alaska and the finest chocolates. I would
invite, Helen Keller because I admire her greatly for her
struggles in life..... Shelagh for her great wit and I know her
conversations would be stimulating. Dick becuse he has lived
a life and a time I only know in books and I would love to
hear his story, the great depression and WW 2. Alice for her
humor and inspiration and out look on life. Carol for her great
stories on her ancestors in the civil war and the great way
she expresses herself.....Don for his truthful ways , he tells it
how it is...dmondeo...Foe his great British humor...The Hairy
mob...For his Scottish stories......Abe March...For his wisdom.

Cheers..Joe... WHO WOULD YOU INVITE TO DINNER DEAD OR ALIVE ? 94519

I'd like a date with Lenny Kravitz, and I'd order take-out.

There have been some excellent choices that would be hard to top so I think I would invite the sergeants from my old WWII company. There would be long lapses in the conversation because basically they were quiet men and would be content merely to be among old friends again. Eddie Wolfe would be the exception as he'd never run out of something to say.
Bob Everidge, better known as R.B., would say, "Eddie, shut up. You're talking too much," and then they'd argue for a minute or so because they could always find something to disagree about.
Nick Scala would frown at both of them and Jimmie Hewston would turn to Hancock saying, "Sycamore, did I tell you about that cute chick I met last night?"
The waitresses would be paying special attention to Jimmie so Bill Medlin would scowl and say, "How about a little service at this end of the table." In his courtly Alabama drawl Julian Hutto would say, You shouldn't talk to the ladies that way, Bill."
Varbedian and Cwicklinski would both want the last roll in the basket and be ready to come to blows until Curly Walsh laughed and started telling them a funny story.
Andy Zahorsky and Jim Burgess would quietly talk about something concerning their homes in Georgia. John Morgan would tell Wolfe and Everidge to knock it off and about that time Major O'Malley would walk into the room saying, "Have you men been drinking? Let me see what's in those glasses!"
Yes, it would be fun.

R.B. Everidge, Jimmie Hewston, Robert Hancock, John Swicklinki, John Morgan and Curly Walsh all died in Normandy. So did Major O'Malley. The others have faded away since then.

Why would I want to invite dead people over to dinner? That seems a little kinky.

The choices made of the living would be great to meet at a party. I imagine it would begin lively until cliques began to form. The drinkers and/or smokers would find themselves shunned by the non-drinkers/smokers. There would be the extroverts doing much talking surrounded by the introverts listening and nodding their heads. Things would get rather quiet after a while unless the room was equipped with musical instruments. There would be calls for someone to sing (No guessing who that would be) accompanied by a number of people capable of playing the piano, guitar or the harmonica. Some may even begin to dance and then the party would shift into high gear presumably led by the drinkers.
Food? Oh yes. A buffet with all the goodies would be expected.

About five oclock I heard my wife say
Guess who's coming to dinner today.
With each name I suggested, she just shook her head.
My list were all living so I tried someone dead.

Old Mary Fitzgerald? I shouted out loud
She cried out "you guessed you'll make your mum proud."
"But old Mary is dead she has been for years
remember her funeral it had you in tears?"

"I know what you think but I'm telling no lie,
I'm cooking her favorite tuna fish pie."
"This is not normal." I had to reply.
"Dead people can never eat a fish pie?"

"Oh sweetheart don't worry sit down and be brave.
I haven't been digging up old Mary's grave.
Don't go thinking I'm some twisted beast.
We won't be having a grizzly feast."

At seven o'clock we sat down to eat.
The napkins all folded the table looked neat.
My wife served dinner a most perfect host.
The fish pie was devoured by old Mary's ghost.

I certainly wouldn't invite a dead person to dinner. In the first place, they wouldn't be able to come unassisted. Secondly, the conversation would be one-sided.

There are many on this board that I would enjoy having for dinner. At the top of the list would be Dick Stodghill. With his wealth of experience and humor, I'm sure it would be fun and memorable.

I would enjoy having dinner with Jimmy Carter. I would ask him about his negotiations with Menachem Begin. I think he would be candid and share insights not yet made public.

There's an offer you cannot refuse.
