Bucket List

Post by Fainn » Mon Jan 28, 2019 11:53 am

I made a list of 30 5hings to do before I turned 30 and accomplished most of them. I will be 40 in a little over 2 years so this is mainly a list of things to accomplish before I die.

1. Get a tattoo.
2. See Blues Traveler in concert.
3. Get a paid ministry job.
4. Start a college fund for Solomon.
5. Write and publish another book.
6. Finish reading the Apocrypha.
7. Take Solomon on an awesome vacation.
8. Take part in the 40 days for life each year.
9. Get ordained.
10. Go to someplace new.
11. Potty train Solomon.
12. Take the wife somewhere fancy or destination vacation for one anniversary.
13. Buy a full box of cigars.
14. Be an extra in a movie.
15. Sponsor a POY for someone.
16. Move back to the mountains.
17. Meet a few CPS people.
18. Play in a concert.
19. Learn to sew.
20. Lose at least 50 lbs.
21. Play a round of real golf.

Trying for 40 things. Any suggestions?

p Ever been to Yosemite?
AND
when Solomon is old enough, take him camping high in the mountains and spend the night looking up at the stars so close.

Interesting list. You have no plan to kick the bucket anytime soon, so things will come to you to amount to 40

I thought a bucket list was just things you wanted to do, not things that might require you to be cleaned up with a sponge and a bucket. :confused:

I did it at the age of 49, on purpose. Pad up and use the right equipment.

Take Solomon fishing.

Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.

It is an experience literally unlike any other.

But make sure your life insurance is paid up first.

The tattoo it's happening. But fishing is probably a good idea

Get a really, really nice bucket.
I am also of the opinion that the Jesuits should be suppressed.

That’s a convenient excuse. You need to drop the pounds sooner rather than later, anyway, so you can run and play with your boy. Once you do, climb into that tandem harness and don’t look back. You will not regret it.
