Bucket List

I’m sure many of you have seen Jack Nicholson & Morgan Freeman’s movie, The Bucket List. For anyone who hasn’t, let me explain to you what a “bucket list” is. It is merely a list of things you want/wish/hope/plan to do before you ‘kick the bucket’. I have thought of many things that I would like to do and accomplish before I croak; mine is a constant work in progress. Not only am I checking things off the list and adding to it and sometimes I choose to take things off of it, and there’s at least one thing I know won’t be able to be crossed off the list until the day I die. I have decided to put my list out there and hear what people have to see about it. I will keep it updated and every time I update it, I will change my post date to the most recent time. Some of my goals do not need to be accomplished at once, but in this case, I must break out the sub-parts. Also, I am going to document where/when/how to the best I can from here on out.
