Free Falling! (not the Tom Petty song)
If you love the great 70s and 80s old rock and roll like us, Tom Petty's Free Falling ranks right up there as one of the best songs ever! When I think of this song my mind always goes back to the weeks right after the birth of our first daughter 31 years ago when my husband told me he was going to jump out of a plane! Tandem sky diving was just getting popular and Curt was going to try it! 31 years later and Tandem sky diving is a popular extreme sport that many of tried. Our guest this episode did just that! Ron Santalucia loved his adventure and he tells us all about this great experience. I'm pretty sure its in my future!
