I would like to see the ocean again but not enough to make the trip.

I know I would be homesick when it came time to go to bed. There is something very nice about sleeping in your own bed.

I would like to fall asleep, so I wouldn't have to think about dying.

Boogie'sMom and Gerania: I know this isn't close to being the same, but you (and anyone else who likes it) are welcome to share my desktop background:

What is the ONE thing you want to do before you die and why?-uploadtocdsmallerfile.jpg


(If I managed to do this right, there should be a photo to grab.)

Actually, that displays low-res. Let's see if this works better:

Yep. If you decide to copy it, go with the link, not the thumbnail. (My original photo(s); no copyright concerns.)

This one isn't the right shape for a desktop, but since, Boogie'smom, you specified ocean, not just beach:

Both of my kids are up in the air about life, I would like to see them settled and happy before I die. I also want my parents to go first, not because they are controlling but because I know how much it would hurt them if I (or my brother) died.

There is honestly nothing I really need to do to be content, but that doesn't mean I'm not still going to try to do a lot of things!

Don't give up. Immerse yourself in doing the things you love to do. Your name suggests you love dogs. Perhaps volunteering at a rescue foundation will introduce you to men with similar interests who are caring and loving too. My grandparents were married over 75 years. They were very simple people who truly loved each other's company and enjoyed being together as well as their individual interests. Even their 90s their love for each other was evident as they enjoyed simple things like making lunch together and having friends and family stop by to visit. The small acts of kindness, care, and appreciation for each other in my eyes was a model of true love.

I'd like to go visit Ireland, Scotland and England. Other than that, I am looking to downsize and move to a modest community nearby where I can walk to a variety of places, especially a diner. I love going to the diner at 5 am, sitting at the counter, enjoying a good cup of coffee, and talking to the regulars.

Rule the world.

Because I can do it better than all of the yahoos who are pulling the strings right now.

Of course the chances of that happening are so close to nil that it may as well be considered impossible, but since we're fantasizing here, that is what I'd like to do before I die.
