Dave Freeman dead at 47

Some sad news - and another reason to focus on living life as best one can, taking advantage of opportunities when they present themselves - like early retirement. One more of life's ironies.

LOS ANGELES - Dave Freeman, co-author of "100 Things to Do Before You Die," a travel guide and ode to odd adventures that inspired readers and imitators, died after hitting his head in a fall at his home. He was 47.

This news devastated my DH, who is a year and a few months shy of that. Whew!
At least he lived life to the fullest!
