    I've thought it would be fun to take Route 66 from start to finish, stopping at every little hokey tourist attraction along the way

    Well, I have 3 for sure:

    - see the northern lights
    - see with my own eyes the path the sun takes across the sky in the far north, that keeps it aloft for nearly 24 hours
    - learn to dance the Charleston!

    I have heard the term "BUCKET LIST" a lot lately. What exactly does "BUCKET LIST" mean. I gather it means things you would like to do...but I dont really understand where the term comes from or what it means.

    "when someone "kicks the bucket", they pass..so your bucket list is things you want to do before you pass on too!

    The Bucket List is the name of a movie where two men who are dying make a list of the things they want to do before there life ends. Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman play the part.

    Ok let me try this, there are so many things I want to do.

    1. To fly in an air plane. Have severe anxiety over this.

    2. To be able to visit Hanford and Selma Ca and see family one more time or more. Especially before DH's DGM passes.

    3. To see my children get married and have kids of their own and their kids have kids.

    4. To own a house of our own before I'm too old to enjoy it.

    5. to have my own sewing room with everything that I need to sew.

    Shall I say this is just a drop in the bucket.

    there is a movie call Bucket List.... It's a great movie. worth renting to view it. Two men make up a list of what they want to do before they die...they are in the hospital...one is rich, one isn't... so that's where it comes from... watch the movie.
