~~ At one time or another we have all experienced the loss of a loved one or know someone who has had to go through a life threatening illness. Sometimes that makes us reevaluate our lives and what we want to accomplish before we die. Some people make a bucket list to help them rethink about what is important to them.
What's a bucket list? Simply put, it's a list of things that a person wants to see or do before they die or "kick the bucket".
To participate, all you have to do is post your bucket list to your blog on Monday, October 20, 2014. If you want to add the picture to your blog post or sidebar, just copy and paste.
A bucket list.
Well, I don't really have one. Not a formal one, anyway.
Of course, there's stuff I want to do. But, I never really wrote them down.
Stormy the Weather Gnome did. In fact, the 2013 Blogging from A to Z April Challenge was all about Stormy's giant bucket list.
Me? I keep things pretty low-key.
But, for the Hop, I will do my best to share a few things I would love to do before I kick said bucket. :)
**Travel across the great U. S. of A.**
This country is really amazing and I haven't seen very much of it. I would love to get in an RV to see this grand nation of ours.
Yes, I would really love to check out Ireland. And not just the touristy spots, but the lovely Irish countryside and places that only the locals frequent.
**Drive REALLY fast.**
I don't think I have a death wish, but I would love to drive a really fast car in some sort of race one day.
**See my book(s) in a bookstore.**
I was close. I even got a few in the library. But, the elusive bookstore will just have to wait until 2015.
**Adopt a German Shepard.**
One day, when we have the space and funds, I would love to get a Shepard. I mention German Shepard, but I know there are a few breeds that we would love just as much. Just as long as I could use the dog as a blanket, I'll be happy.
So, that's a good start, right?
