    Bucket List
    I know this isn't exactly funny, but I didn't know where else to post it. I tried to search and see if there were other posts about this, but I couldn't find one.

    Do any of you have a Bucket List? (The list of things that you want to do/try before you "kick the bucket")

    Aside from the obvious things regarding spending more time with family and such, what would you put on your list?

    A few things that I have on mine are:

    Learn how to fire a handgun
    Go to Trapeze Class
    Stay in a 5-Star Hotel Suite
    Ballroom dancing lessons
    Have a professional fashion photo shoot
    Get an article published in the Pitch Pipe (magazine related to my hobby of singing barbershop)
    Write a letter to 10 people that inspire me and tell them why
    Make a list of all family birthdays and remember to send a card for ALL of them
    Start a family tradition
    Fly first Class
    Be able to do 25 push ups
    Send a postcard to Post Secret
    Do a Police or Fire ride along

    Anyway, this has just been on my brain lately and I wondered what you all might put on yours.

    Great topic. Here's a few on my list:

    Learn to play the piano
    Learn to shoot a rifle...just a 22
    Explore the US in an RV
    Live on a piece of land that has a pond with fish
    Quit smoking...for good this time
    Get back down to my "fighting weight"
    Find the time to do volunteer work at an animal shelter
    Grow old with my life partner
    Find a good NY pizza in Pennsylvania!

    Sorry Jim,

    But there is something wrong with your list.

    If you want to learn how to shoot a rifle, then what do you care about your old "fighting weight"? You can still weigh 500 pounds, and as long as you know how to shoot a rifle, then nobody is going to mess with you anyway.

    Btw, do you think that right after you learn how to shoot a rifle, that anyone in their right mind would let you get near their animals?

    Look, if you want to learn to play the piano, here is a free keyboard for you to practice:

    If you want to explore the US in an RV, just read this about the latest gas prices on driving just a regular small downtown, so multiply that by 10 for driving any RV just out of your state:

    You can go anywhere on the US, without having to worry about licenses, permits and insurances, just because you own that piece of land that has a pond with some fish on it.

    Sorry to break this news to you but... Eventually you will grow old with, or without your partner.

    Now, if you want some good pizza, just ask Trust about that, he's the expert on ABW on where to get the best pizza around.

    I added one:

    To have all the free time that Mr. Sal has to pick out those smilies!

    (Thanks for the chuckle, Mr. Sal.)

    I really love everyone's answers and it has taken me forever to compile a few things I would like to do.

    1) the obvious, manage a veterinary clinic with my best friend (achievable in the next few years)
    2) send my daughter to England for a month vacation
    3) teach my horse to reign to "Rollin" by Limp Bizkit
    4) teach my parrots to sing any Judas Priest song
    5) Got to vegas
    6) write a novel
    7) throw the biggest "Rocky Horror Picture Show" party Ohio has ever seen
