Swap your ideas and stores, compare notes, inspire someone or become inspired yourself to do something you'd never thought of doing before...let's hear from you...

#1 on my bucket list is: AVOID THE GRIM REAPER.

He's been hanging around my place making a nuisance of himself for years. "Go away," I yell at him, "I'm busy -- come back in a hundred years." But he doesn't listen. I think he's deaf. Every once in awhile he sticks his head round the door and leers at me. I ignore him. He doesn't take the hint so I tell him to go cut the grass if he needs to do something with his scythe. What he doesn't know is that I have this ginormous bucket. It will take years and years and years to do/see/live all that's in it. I exercise, sleep well and eat all the things he hates. I have a huge and excellent medical team on my side too. Good thing he's got his robe and cowl thingie to keep him warm because he's going to be hanging outside for many years yet.

I agree with Wendy. He comes and goes, and I just hope to publish my novel which I have worked on for 5 years, before he finally gets hold of me! Do you all have days when you feel 40 again, and days when you feel totally useless?

On my bucket list is losing 30 lbs. and training myself to eat healthy and exercise - then that old guy won't be able to catch me soon!
Cheers to all!

On my bucket list is also losing 30 lbs but, in the meanwhile, I would like to finish memory albums for my children and myself -- something that was started ten years ago and then left on the shelf !!!!! Wish me luck!!

Meg -- You've written a novel? Way to go! That's a huge accomplishment. Is it finished and ready to submit to an agent or publisher? I wish you much publishing success. And, yes, I too have not-so-good days when I feel I haven't accomplished anything at all.

BJ. Good luck with losing the 30 lbs. It's hard to lose weight as we get older. I gained 20 lbs when I retired. I've been trying hard to lose it, but even when I do it always finds me again. ;-)

S.Veensta. Good luck to you, too, for both losing weight and for finishing your memory albums.

My bucket list is huge. I'm riding my Harley across Canada in may-june/11. Anyone ride? Working on finishing a novel I started several years ago and do figure drawing. Just got back from Peru, Machu Picchu. Seeing the world is a big part of my bucket list. Norm

There's a number of things on my bucket list; one of them was joining a gym and getting back into shape. I've done that! Joined, that is, getting back into shape is a work in progress--& is paying off handsomely.

There are places I want to see and things I want to do right here in my own country so those are on the list too, such visiting the Arctic, see the Fundy tides, learn at least passable French & visiting Quebec...& the list goes on ...

Then too there are things in other countries on my list, things such as the British Museum in London (along with the rest of Britain while I'm at it), a horseback riding holiday in Spain (especially Andalusia & Extramadura), return to South America because it's been far too long ...
