  1. Is the last list yours? I like the last one. I'm going to tell the crew of immigrant day laborers where I volunteer that what they do once a week is what a white American lady has on her bucket list. They'll get a kick out of that.

  2. Riding the horse in the surf? I always wanted to do that but I am unable to now - still I managed to find a place in Cape Hatteras/Avon NC where you can do just that [it is a 3 hour ride] with the nicest woman and I sent our girls last summer when we were on vacation there. They had the best time. [If you ever want the info let me know :D]

    My bucket list usually starts with "Celebrate Christmas one more time" and goes from there. No high expectations for me :D

  3. I added a few things that I have done to the original list and the one below in italics is my additions of what I'd like to do :)

  4. Hi! I had to pop over and let you know that Squirrel applied to JMU too! It is so exciting that you are an alum. :D

    We are just waiting on more letters [gosh this is nerve wracking!] but I will definitely let you know if she is lucky enough to be accepted to JMU [Dad likes it because it would be the closest next to UVA LOL]

  5. Great list... you certainly have done a lot of things on the list.. and added some good ones.
