Robert’s Bucket List

Richard started sharing his Bucket List on (he actually calls it his 55 Gallon Drum List because, well, just because my husband is goofy sometimes).  It’s fun to read about his dreams and to see if there is any wish I didn't know about (there is!).

(who can now cross this off his own bucket list)

Richard’s list includes:

1. Learn to scuba dive;
2. Fly a glider; (I didn't know about this one)
3. Visit Paris;
4. See Stonehenge;
5. Learn to brew beer;

Richard's list got me thinking about my own wish list of places I want to go and things I want to do in this lifetime:

1. Go to Paris;
2. See the Mayan ruins;
3. Go on a cruise to Alaska;
4. Watch every movie that has won the Best Picture Academy Award;
5. Read all the books that I have on my living room bookshelves;

We were talking about this when returning from what is now our tradition of dinner out on Friday nights and Richard asked Robert what was on his bucket list.  Robert didn’t know what the heck Richard was talking about so Richard explained: What are some things you have always wanted to do? 

The simplicity of Robert’s answers should not have surprised me.

1. Watch Jeopardy;
2. Do Word Search puzzles;
3. Go bowling;
4. Go to France;

Robert jokes about going to France so I love that it is on his bucket list.  He also jokes about drinking whiskey and going to New York so I suspect those will show up on his list the next time we ask him. 

What’s on your 55 Gallon Drum list?

Love this story and think that sometimes the simplest of goals are the most rewarding :)
