  1. Thanks for finding me…saw this and wanted to let you know that the Bucket List is old paradigm. You want to upgrade and store your List Of Things To Do In This Lifetime in The Cloud. Much better than a bucket (that’s used for mopping or catching nasty stuff like garbage, dirt, body fluids, etc.). The Cloud List! Promote it on your blog! (And I have your #110 listed as “take a math class” as a way to overcome my anger that the math people mixed MY letters with their numbers…ugh!)

    I enjoyed reading your list, I have been an electrician for over twenty five years now and it really was not much fun till I went to work for the railroad, now I get to be an electrician and work on locomotives. Its like working on great big toys. Thanks for your post.


  3. Reminder: Practice your piano!

  11. Time to work on writing my list, instead of keeping it in my head…. thanks for the inspiration! … Perhaps my followers will be inspired as well… I hope so, which is why I’ve honored you with the Versatile Blogger Award… you can see it here:



  12. This is a lovely list, and I hope you are able to achieve every one of these things! #41, 97 and 104 are on my list as well.
    It doesn’t have to be fancy or fantastic, it just has to be yours…..and thats all that matters. As long as you believe in them, you’ll have no problem doing this and so much more.
    Have a beautiful journey ❤


  13. I think I should make my own bucket list, too! (and update it from time to time) 😀


  14. I can help you with 92, 39, and 75, at least.


  15. I like the list! Gives me something to think about.


    • I’m happy it inspires thought. It took the loss of someone dear before I decided to make a list. It may not be fancy, fantastic, or as thrilling as others out there, but it’s a start in a good direction for my little family 🙂
