"It's a Bucket List Friday Five, Gals and Pals!"

Singing Owl asks "...do you have a "Bucket List"? In other words, from the movie of the same name, five things you want to see, do, accomplish, etc. before you kick the bucket?"

Well of course there are way more than five. I often think I'll have to live to be very, very old to accomplish everything on my list, but here are some of my top ones this morning.....
  • Travel to Ireland and try to connect with some of my relatives there if possible (which would mean I'd have to get serious about my genealogy again and find them!)
  • Learn to play that cello that has been sitting in the corner of my dining room since 2004
  • Go back to school....maybe distance learning....in something related to Scripture studies or preaching....or to learn to speak fluent Spanish!
  • Take a hot air balloon ride
  • Go on a Mississippi River boat cruise from St. Paul to New Orleans

KATE! The cello is already in your dining room?! I'm so jealous. Here, I think Ben Sollee could help to motivate.

Ah, yes, the instrument begging for interaction. I've got a guitar that suffers that same affliction. Go for that hot air balloon ride. It's an amazing float!

When our lists are complete, we shall speak Spanish together!

(I started to write that in Spanish but do not know how to write in the preterit tense, a major failing thus far!)

I love the cello...a great place to take hot air balloons is over the valley just north of San Diego...not that I did that mind you...but I've been there and watched folks doing that at sunset - could see the ocean, etc...really cool!!!

There's always room for Cello-couldn't resist!

Hot air ballooning is neat, but it is very hot--especially if you do it in the California desert as we did when I was a teenager.

I'd go on that Ireland trip with you and my Grandma and aunt have actually located and visited some of our relatives.

Ooooo....that boat trip sounds awesome!

That cello is really commanding your attention! Good luck in exploring that option. Ireland would be lovely.
