Tiggerlane the Neophyte Blogger, as hostess of this week’s Fun Monday, asked participants, "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."

Not having seen the movie yet, I understand the premise but lack imagination.  If I gave this serious thought, surely a few wackies and bizarros would land on the list…instead, here are some thoughts bordering on the simple and ordinary:

  • Swim with the dolphins.  Seriously.  (not to be confused with "swimming with the fishes", since  dolphins aren’t fish and I don’t owe the mob any money).
  • Meet Paula Deen and if I was REALLY lucky, cook beside her! 
  • Cheer our children through college and their careers…and love the people they choose for a mate.
  • Hold all our grandchildren and live long enough to get to KNOW them :).
  • Travel to all 50 U.S. States (even if I’ll have to be medicated to make it to Alaska and Hawaii).
  • Organize all our pictures :/.
  • "Do" something more with my writing (secret hopes, secret dreams).
  • To grow in my faith so deeply, people really don’t see so much of "me" anymore…to know Christ so intimately, I "look" more like him in words, actions, thoughts (John 3:30).

Hmmm, it might be really FUN to come up with a working list of "Life To-Dos".  If you aren’t participating with Fun Monday this week, what are a few of your thoughts?
