    [QUOTE=crossfire;4168451]This is a picture from my first jump. It was a tandem jump with Don Kellner.

    Kellner is the world record holder for the most jumps. He currently has over 40,000 jumps.

    This jump came after my first wedding ended in divorce...

    when I no longer feared death.[/QUOTE]

    Looks slightly anal.

    I think jumping out of a plane is a good metaphor for marriage.

    Except for the parachute part.

    What would be a good metaphor for the "....it's the sudden stop that kills you."?

    Don't see the point of wearing a parachute if all that was going to happen upon landing is a marriage.

    She saw it from 1000-2000 feet you could see it better than the pictures did justice..granted 20 foot letters would have been even more noticeable hahah
