A couple years ago a started a 'bucket list' if you will, as cheesy as it may sound I think the movie, Bucket List prompted this. I've had this ratty piece of notebook paper folded up in my wallet since then and for some reason I thought about it today. I got inspired again and thought I should make this list more concrete by making it a blog entry. I'm also hoping that by sharing my list with friends and family (the few of you who read this) it will inspire me to make more of these dreams become a reality. It was supposed to be 100 things but its a work in progress at 61. I've been lucky enough to have accomplished a handful over the last 24 months (give or take a few months). For now I'll make a side note with the date for those dreams I've reached, and going forward I will make a new entry. Here goes:
