For Sharon

Sharon's rebuttal for the "No Way In Hell"

In my defense
Denny put this photo up without telling me, and I'm sure was my response was exactly what he says it was! I'm terrified of heights, married to a guy who likes to hang ten at the Grand Canyon. At least this time I was able to see where he wanted to take us; usually I get no warning until I'm teetering on the brink of oblivion. But in my cowardly defense, notice in this picture which way the car would be travelling? Why, why, why are the sheer drop-offs always on the passenger side!? Not only do I get a bird's eye view of my own Thelma and Louise demise, to make it even more thrilling he'll find the narrowest spot in the road, with the teeny tiniest pull off area, and park with one wheel hanging over the edge while he stops to take a picture. Arrggghhhh!!!!!!

As much as I like to take photos, I think I am with you on this one, Sharon. Heights...OK; dangerous heights...??? That's another matter. (But in Denny's defense, he does get some outstanding photographs!!!) #9358504

Uhhhhh, I'm not particularly afraid of heights and would be the passenger hanging out that window to get the shot. But on the other hand, I'm not much for bungee jumping in a car, so Sharon, you get my vote on this one as well! ;-D Cute photo, Denny! #9358588

Haha... I'm with you, Sharon, If I ain't driving, I ain't going. When we were there I kept looking down for the rusty remnants of Thelma & Louise's car. My wife says she expects to put something like "And I buried him with the stupid shot he got that got him here" on my tombstone. #9368698
