Creating a "Bucket List"

Yesterday Biggy B and I watched movies and "vegged" on the couch. The weather was cold and rainy so it was a good day to snuggle in with our blankets and pillows.
We watched "The Bucket List." What a great movie. A comedy that even made Biggy B cry in the end.

At the end of the movie I thought about my "Bucket List." What do I want to do before I die? What would I be able to afford to do? What would be important to me if I found out I only had a year to live?

I still have not been able to start the list, but am thinking hard about it. Do you have a "Bucket List?" What are some of the items on yours? Would love to hear what you readers think.

We saw the movie on our way to Isla in May and loved it (but I bet it's a lot better viewed at home with the proper equipment!). I used to think I wanted to summit a mountain. Maybe by helicopter now? Ha! Mine would include many travel destinations -- most of them beaches! Great idea Brenda!

I agree...great idea. Mine would be to do all the creative and artistic things I've put off all my life to do the 9 to 5 thing. My dream job would be to travel the backroads of the country, writing and taking pictures about small town USA. Who knows...

Beck...I'll let you take that helicopter. Small planes and helicopters....not on my list. I am with you on the beaches though.
Isla deb...I love back roads. Biggy B taught me about the back roads. Now we live on one!! One of our local TV stations produces a show called "On the Road" with Jason Davis. He visits all those small towns on the back roads of Minnesota.

I'd kinda like to see someone in Mexico complete a paint job without splatters. Better yet, I'd like to win the Mexican lottery! LOL And then do what? See some of Europe and
..Help people make world peace.

I enjoyed the Bucket List. If I had lots of money my list would include giving more to help others less fortunate. I do give now but wouldn’t it be great to be able to anonymously donate a ton of money to someone or an organization to help those in need?
I think the first thing on my list were I to create one is to have grandchildren. I know tha isn’t something I do myself but it is the one thing I really want.

Carl..Try duct tape on the exhaust system.LOL
Zina..I don't think it is possible to get a paint job in Mexico without splatter. (Been there)
Jackie..I keep telling our boys not to make me a grandma yet!! I have plenty of great nieces to play with for now. (The boys aren't married yet) Good luck with your quest for "grandmahood."
