Bucket list:

1. Lose the final 15 lbs

2. Make bread regularly, not just dream about it
(doesn't go with no. 1)

3. Finish typing up all my writing and sending out
(goes with eating, no. 2)

4. Get another dog (rescue) the same breed as Lily Jeanne

5. Embrace the new physical therapy that is allowing me to walk no. 4

Off the top of my head:

1. Witness both of my Granddaughters' High School Graduations (6 and 4 right now)
2. Skydive from 30,000ft. (next year at Skydance Skydiving in Davis, CA.)
3. Jump on Bridge Day
4. Vist Austrailia, dive the Great Barrier Reef
5. Restore a 1969 Dodge Challenger/426 hemi engine
6. Climb each of the 14'ers in Colorado.
7. Motorcycle with my wife down as much of old U.S. route 66 as we can
8. Read all those damn books piling up
9. Learn German and Spanish.
10. Visit Germany and Spain so they may mock my language skills

There's more, I'm sure.

The only thing on my list concerning a bucket is to do my best to avoid kicking it.

Mine is quite brief:

Get a real house where we can't hear the neighbor slamming the door
Get a black Giant Schnauzer and train her much better than our two Manchesters
Get the best Nikon DSLR with the best lens, about $ 5,000 right now

And... God willing... enjoy it for five or six years, if I last that long
