The Bucket List

I was tagged by fssunnysd the other day and this is one I had to jump on...I only recently saw the movie...and I loved it. I cried! The fam didn't even make fun of me for doing so. It sure makes a person think...but I can honestly say, that if I didn't have long to live, there isn't much I would regret not getting to do. Sure it would be nice to see some of the places that I have always wanted to visit, but I think that I would really want to spend the time I had left with My Honey, my kid and my horses rather than gallavent all over the country.

So on to the fun part...

Wow...that was fun...what did the list miss?

Well, I did get to drive a race car...and then I totalled it. wasn't my fault...another girl hit me, spun me around and I got hit head-on. Okay, so no more racing for me...but I would love to drive in a demolition derby!!

What would I really like to do that is on this bucket list?

Go back east. I've never been farther east than the Wisconsin border.

So there you have it...39 years of experiences, in a nutshell!!

Come to this coast girlfriend, and we will show you the East Coast by us! ;) (Hmmm... Honeymoon with HoneyMan maybe? hehe)

Great list-- and we have LOTS in common about water. Did you watch JAWS when you were a kid? ;)

Kisses to those poines, and be sure to smack them hams on Shooter from me too!

sue said...

loved your bucket list, and actually if I answered it, we had the similar answers... except for the ocean... when we lived in our other town, my house was only 1/4 mile from the ocean, so I have been in it a lot (though its cold and salty!!!).. but, what I really wanted to say, is I have never been further west than Vermont!!!! so, you are telling me there is still land in your part of the country, and I will tell you that there is still land in my half of the country... maybe one day, we will see each other's "land"....

Callie said...

Great bucket list! Wow, there's a lot on it! I really wanted to see that movie, think I'll have to get it now and watch. I stil can't watch "Jaws" LOL

Callie said...

LOL, I just had to add, "crashed a race car!" I knew you were/are sassy! LOL

SunnySD said...

Love the additions. The east coast is a great place to visit, especially up north in the fall (beautiful color) - and if you drive that big truck, everybody will get out of your way :) Just beware parking garages!

And I'm so with you on getting lost!

SunnySD said...

Forgot to say, hope the Stock Show was a blast - and I'm looking forward to hearing about the trip. Hope it was a great one!

cdncowgirl said...

Great list. Not too surprised though, you strike me as a girl that LIVES life.
As for you comment on visiting Canada... all I can say is how the heck do you think we survive the winter? lol

kdwhorses said...

LOL! Great list! Maybe been horseback riding a few time! ROTFL!! Nah, never would have thought that!
I still haven't seen the movie, would love to though!

ezra_pandora said...

That was hilarious. I can definitely say I've lived a somewhat sheltered life. Maybe when I'm not responsible for other human beings, I can let lose and do some crazy stuff :))

Melanie said...

What a fun thing to do!!! Hey...I live about one hour from the Space Needle. Want me to go up there and take pictures for you??? Then you can "say" that you were up!!!!

Fantastyk Voyager said...

I've done a LOT of those things too.
