Bucket List

“When will the good guys win?”

 “When the last battle is fought between the forces of good and evil. When Christ and the Antichrist meet at Armageddon.”

 “Sounds like a hell of a story. I hope I get to cover it.”

 “We cover it every day, Frank.” From “The Quest” by Neldon Demille

 I recently watched “The Bucket List”, an interesting movie about a couple of guys with a short time to live.  They put together a list of the 10 things they wanted to do or see before they die.


Eventually, I got around to considering my own “Bucket List”. It wasn’t easy and the list changed hourly. Here, for the fun of it, are my current objectives. Subject to change of course. Suggestions welcome.
