I did a lot of things on my bucket list. I wanted to write and get published and did that. I wanted to sing in a club and did that. I wanted to buy my own home and did that. I wanted to have a show on the cable radio and I had job search, also played an actress on my l2 week series of my book they featured. I wanted to be listed in the Who's Who book of writers and did that. I wanted to be able to be with my grandkids growing up and did that and still do.
I really don't know what else I want as I believe I have everything I really wanted, a home, a son, grandkids, husband and dil. So as I grow older my bucket list turned into a hobby of one thing, writing, which I do now and then. I do exercise, bike, walking, reading, watching tv, etc.

So have you completed things you wanted to do in life?

I got confused because I was like, going from Miami to the Gulf of Mexico isn't that big a deal... and then I realized you weren't talking about Miami, FL. Sounds like you have a plan!

Big Brother, though we have snail mailed, I am so happy to see you here and add the topic you mentioned.

I can not help you in your quest because I, first do not know how to swim and never learned, so water and I don't get along. LOL Once I was in a canoe, with a boyfriend, and I was happy when it was over, and never wanted to go again.

I know Jessica does go camping and possibly she might have done some of the things you have experienced or want to. I hope she sees this and comes on with a reply.

I have one thing currently on my bucket list. It's a bucket trip. Sometime before I'm 80 (I'm researching/ planning as if it's June/July 2017) I want to canoe or kayak from the great Miami River in my town to the Gulf of Mexico. I'm learning all kinds of new skills. I want to focus on foraging for a moment. If catastrophe struck and there were no grocery stores or farmers markets. What would you eat after your stored foods were depleted and before your next garden harvest? Could you gather from public lands? Here a short list I've found so far. Dandylions, clover, cat tails ( the inside tender stalk tastes like cucumber and the top is good tender for starting a fire. Oops. Next topic! Lol. Then there's stinging nettle but you must St boil it first to remove it's toxicity. Any other ne know of more?

I don't think I have a bucket list. There is nothing I really want to. Been to a lot of places, and have sung and wrote, so nothing I can think of. What about you?

We all have a bucket list that never seems to get done. We say we are going to get to it but the days seem to fly by and we never even attempt to look at it. What do you want to do before you leave this world? Do you want to be famous? Do you want to sky dive? Do you want to be published or lose weight? How about telling us?

I think your bucket list is on a lot of people's list. We tend to forget friends. I notice how I miss a lot that used to post and some have come back. It is so wonderful. I hope you get something published. You know newspapers will publish stuff for you if you ask, but may not pay you unless it is something of interest to them. There is so much going on around your town the newspaper does not know about. Check it out, call the editor and ask if he is interested in your writing an article on it. Remember to add quotes.

I want to try and spend more time with my family.
I want to get out of the house and do things.

What about your bucket list for 20l5?

I don't have one, but a character's father does in a book I want to write. I have over 10k of the story done so far. The main character's father is all about lists and being organized. But he dies before finishing his list, so his son decides to finish the last 13 of them. They vary from things like swim with the dolphins, read huge fantasy series, to learn guitar and dye hair crazy color. The novelette went over well but I need to put more work into it and make it a full novel.

I've always wanted to go back and see the house my grandparent's had, as I know the new owners, but like you said, I like remembering the house i remembered it the last time I saw it. To go back and see any new renovations would make me feel they disgraced my grandparents. So instead I remember the way it was . The one thing I do is Google search the places I lived and cyber walk thru the streets. It's great memories..

Psalms 139: 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!

Camey, in my opinion (humble though it is) it's a bad idea to go back and look at a house you grew up in, lived in, or owned. It is disappointing to see what changes the new owners make, and somehow it just isn't the way you remembered. Better to just leave a good memory alone.

Speaking of building a house, when singe, my dad and bro looked at designs and had the builder put the frameon and then they did the rest. It was ranch with 20 acres. Imagine if we had it today we would be rich, with all the land. I went by it and the house is different and has a porch. I didn't care for what the new people did to it.

I think I am fortunate in that I have done a lot of reckless, silly, spur-of-the-moment things instead of sitting back watching my friends do them. I actually did them. At my age and the way I feel, truly there are not a lot of things I can say "I wish I had done that." One of the last things I had wanted to do was actually make a quilt -- and finished it.

I've done all the traveling I want to do, although I know I'll have to make one more trip to Italy to visit my daughter.

I've always wanted to build a house (not me, but contractors) and help with the design. As our summer home burned down we are building a home. I had many house plans to choose from so I did not actually design it myself, but we were able to move things around within the house.

If I come up with something important that I forgot, I'll come back and add it.

Trying to find the silver lining in all the clouds!

Like you go through my old list of children stories, continue writing my new novel, maybe send out more stories and articles to newspapers or magazines. Keep losing weight and eating healthy. Living a long and healthy life so I can do all this.

I love Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in "The Bucket list" So I pose this question to all of you..... "What's on your bucket list?" What are the things that you want to get done, maybe just simply to say " It's Done" " Finished" "Complete" "End of Chapter"

For me its the many stories I have unfinished. After all the characters I gave birth to when I created the stories cant just sit around and wait for something to happen, they have to go out and live and reach for adventure. Just like I do, (Where was I going?) oh yea... Another thing I want to complete is school and getting my English Degree, if for only to day I did it.

other things are get healthy so I can continue moving bending and walking, and two eat right so I am not so sluggish and unhealthy.

Now its your turn what would you like to do, And it can be ANYTHING....

Psalms 139: 14 Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex!
