Kicking the Bucket


For Fun Monday, Tiggerlane would like the following:

Have you heard of The Bucket List? Well, that's what I want from you! Make a list of things you want to do before you die. It must be at least five items - and you can make it as long as you desire. Photos are optional. And let's hear about some of the wackiest, most bizarre to-do's on your Bucket List!

So, after working 24 out of the last 36 hours, here is my list:



  1. To live a year in Ireland
  2. To live a year in Italy
  3. To own a 1968 Mustang, again!
  4. To show in one major APHA (American Paint Horse Association) show with NV.
  5. I would say to find that one person to love for the rest of my life, but since I would be dying, that would be pretty dang tacky.
  6. I would like to go shopping without worrying about money. Not just shopping for me and no particular store, just shopping without worry.

So there you have it! Check back tomorrow for next Monday's topic.

Faye said...

Well now that's so considerate to not have some guy fall for you when you're on the downhill slide!

Share your interest in spending a long time in Italy--you could go to Sienna where they have the Palio Races in the town square. P.S.--don't hold me to the spelling for palio!

Great list - love the shopping without care for money... Lowe's would be empty!

Serina Hope said...

Well the bucket list challenge just asks for a list of things you want to do before you die. It doesn't say you have to be currently dying right? So I'm going to wish for you that you find the love of your life! Waaaay before you die. :-)

I enjoyed your list.

Sign me up for next week please!

Tiggerlane said...

#5 and #6 are the best - thanks so much for participating, AND for volunteering to host next week!

Michelle said...

Great list!!

I say find love now. The Bucket list is for the things you want to do before you die, not while you're dying. No wait that's not right. Well darn it anyway, I say you should still find love :o)

Junebug said...

You go live in Italy and Ireland and I will visit you, ok? Also you find that one love long before you die, alright? Are we in agreement? :D

Megnificent said...

So when you decide to go shopping without worrying about money, invite me.

And please sign me up for next week, dahhhhling.

Pamela said...

shopping - with someone elses money. That would be great. I hate to shop, but I think it's cuz I don't want to spend my own money.

No. You go ahead and find that one person to love. This bucket list doesn't have a time frame!!!

ChrisB said...

oh I can so relate to the shopping one now that I'm retired. It's like I've turned full circle having to watch every penny (would that be dime for you!)
I'll add you to my side bar for hosting next week.

Moi said...

I love old Mustangs too:). There's just something about them.

Your wish to live abroad for a proscribed period of time is wise. It's always nice to be able to go home afterwards:).

some paints are pretty, but i hate it when they have blue eyes, kind of like dogs having blue eyes. it creeps me out.

I would like to go shopping without worrying about money. Not just shopping for me and no particular store, just shopping without worry.
I hear ya 100%!

Sieglinde said...

Wonderful list (and I like the title of your blog, too!)

Karina said...

Love your list! As a self-proclaimed shopaholic, I love the last one! ;-)

Peter said...

Hey you don't have to be dying in this Bucket List so go ahead and find your true love.
Thanks for hosting next week.

Cynthia said...

Good one! I like Great Britian, also!

Alix said...

Great list I'm adding no 2 and no 6 to mine. Although I never worry while I am actually shopping it is when I get home! Then I have to take things back - LOL!

James said...

That is a great list. Especially 1 and 2.. I would do that in a heartbeat.

I'd also like the 68 mustang. I had a 96 mustang - a retired california highway patrol car. It was sweet and fast. I noticed the new mustangs kinda look like the old ones now. Have to take test drive.
