A few months ago my friend Steven and I watched the Bucket List a comedy-drama with Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. It was the first time I’d seen the movie. I’d passed on it when it first came out but I can’t exactly say why. Something in my brain is short-wired when it comes to movies. What I pass on I later like and what I have to see I hate, usually. Anyway, the movie popped into my pea sized movie brain the other day. It was almost like my brain was yelling at me: Do-Bucket-List-Now (not getting any younger here, ya know) than, simultaneously I thought THINK BIG.
So here lies (no pun intended) for better or worse the first ten of one hundred on my bucket list not that I actually have one hundred things in mind I just thought it looked better to say one hundred on paper. It’s a trick on my mind to make me think I’ve got all the time in the world which if I follow Aunts Oneida & Louise may be I do. Aunt Oneida turns 100 this November with aunt Louise pushing towards 100 within two years hence.
