I first wrote about my bucket list in January of 2008. Here is the list:
"The Bucket List" has spurred me on to make my own proverbial list before I kick the bucket.
#1 Go for a ride in a convertible, with sun glasses on and a long scarf blowing in the wind..this should not take place in sub zero Minnesota weather..picky aren’t I ?
#2 Go to a Beach Boys or Moody Blues concert..The Bee Gees would have made this list..but Maurice kicked the bucket.
#3 Play in a World Series of Poker Tournament
#4 Go for a cruise in the Caribbean …and not hear one complaint from Far Guy
#5 Go to Finland for a Sauna
Nope none of that sky diving, race car driving for me..I am going to wait until I get Alzheimer’s to do those things…..:) What would be on your list?
Then In August of 2008 my niece Ellen gave me a ride in her convertible. Here is the story!
Then in July of 2009, Far Guy, Chance and I were in the "pee-raid" and I spent the afternoon in a convertible.
Did you notice anything? I seem to be stuck on number one. I am like a record stuck on an old phonograph, like a car stuck in a snowbank spinning it’s wheels, like a little kid with his tongue stuck to a pump in the middle of the winter, like someone in quicksand..you know like in the old movies..someone gets stuck in the quicksand..then the music changes..and the hero comes riding up on his white horse in his white hat and ropes you in the first try and drags your sorry butt out of the quicksand pit.
Far Guy often makes lists, he actively works on them to see them to completion. He says I am not actively pursuing the things on my list..maybe not..maybe that is what is nice about my list..I am just waiting for life to happen..and to see if any of it just happens to be on my bucket list. If I am stuck repeating number one, one more time I will just cross it off the list ( the third time is a charm) ..and put something else in it’s place:)
