the bucket list

Carrie hung out with the old folks on Sunday, free dinner and a movie sounded good to her. Little did she know she would be in the 'old folks' theatre watching The Bucket List. The place was packed with senior citizens!

The movie was very good, not a surprise, starring Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman, and directed/produced by Rob Reiner.

The premise of The Bucket List is about making a list of things you want to do before kicking the bucket. So now we are all thinking about making a list. Carrie is way ahead of us already on her list:

Go to Australia, Fiji, New Zealand - been there done that
See the Grand Canyon - been there done that
Get married - been there done that, got the dress
Skydiving - been there done that

I guess I better get busy on my list. What is on your Bucket List?

Oh, Susan, this is so perfect:
"Get married - been there done that, got the dress." I had the dress only a couple of years before a friend wanted it for her wedding. Just as well. I didn't keep the husband, either.

Let's see, what should I add to my bucket list? Hmmm, I'll have to think about this. Maybe I should see the movie first.

How interesting and certainly something to think about. I DO NOT like Jack Nickolson but my daughter does and everytime I go down there she makes me watch this certain scene from one of his movies. He always seems to play the "dirty ole man". lol

Yep...gonna have to make my own Bucket List. Just off the top of my head I can think of a few things:

*Travel internationally with my grandkids.
*Retire (~¿*)
*Conquer my fear of heights

I've never made an actual bucket list, though I sort of have the spirit of one in the fore of my mind that I listen to and act on as much as I can. But mostly, I suppose it's a seat of the pants way of doing things. Perhaps it would be fun to make a list and feel the contentment after having crossed something off!

List or not, the point is: live, love, laugh!
