Do you have a Bucket List?

Well a few months ago I got the screen of death…..or at least my computer did. One of the things I ended up losing was my Bucket List. I’m one of those people that makes a list for everything: todo Work, todo Weekend, todo when I get home, to pack for vacay, grocery list, and my infamous–list of todo in the bigger city (this one can get pretty big as we don’t go very often)………you get the idea.

My Bucket List is the fun list.

Did you ever see the movie “The Bucket List” with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman? I started mine right after. Anyone else have a Bucket List?
