My “Bucket List”…

Ok so I am not posting Part II of Supermarket Society because it’s not done, but I thought I would combat my writer’s block with a little written “sorbet” just to clear my mind.

I have seen several sights regarding all the things that people want to do before they are too old to do them 🙂  So although the idea is not orginal (especially since the recent movie the Bucket List“) I am going to write out some of the things that I would like to do before the Lord returns. When I complete them, I will highlight them (some were on my list before and have been done, but I will leave them there to provide myself with a sense of accomplishment!)
