    All this talk of Urns Whats on your bucket list

    Well Rennie I got to thinking after you mentioned the movie in your thread and did not want to hi jack it but that movie "Bucket List" was quiet powerful.

    Made me wonder who and how many of ye all have a bucket list and whats on it.

    Hey is I ever win that Lotto i might make one of them come true

    So go on guys list your bucket list.

    Here is mine

    1) Build a cedar strip Canoe
    2) Build a real log cabin on my own land thats fully paid for and far far away from an NN's
    3) Go fishing in Alaska for halibut and salmon
    4) Bone fishing with a fly line on the flats in Florida and Tarpon fishing with a fly rod.
    5)See the Taj Mahal in India
    6)Visit the Pyramids in Egypt
    7) Take loml to Paris for a Romantic dinner cruise down the Seine
    8) Go barging in France through the country side.
    9) By or build my own CNC machine and learn to programming all over again.
    10) Conquer sketchup

    Oh the list goes on and on

    Whats yours?

    Somewhere in there is finish my dust collection system.
    cheers

    I've had, and am still having, an active life.
    Some items on my 'list' won't happen.
    e.g. get elected a U.S. Senator.
    Go grizzly bear hunting in Alaska with a muzzle loader.

    Not much more. I could wish for wealth. Heck, I do that all the time 'wish' for wealth.
    Just hope to stay healthy and spend time with family.
    Could hope for a new truck. Wouldn't mind having a new ATV. Have never owned a boat. That's almost a sin where I live, between two big lakes, near three famous rivers. Oh, well.

    Rob,
    I'll give it some thought... however, off the top of my head here are a few...

    • Have my own photo studio.
    • Convert a coach into an RV
    • Travel across the US & Canada in the coach with my wife.
    • Finish my Shop.
    • Move to VA to be closer to my parents (to care for them as needed)
    -Ned

    I've been asked that question several times and I can't come up with anything. I've lived an interesting life and enjoyed almost all of it. I don't feel I missed anything that I could do now.

    I wish I had been able to spend one year of college in France (especially Paris) when I was in school so that my French would be better, but that's time gone past.

    So I will answer to each post so far some thoughts

    Rennie my popcorn is getting cold, it does not have to be the perfect list you will find like I have that as others post you will be adding because at our age, the memory cannot recall all the desires.

    Frank, hey i think you stand a chance with that Senator thing. Election time is coming around for these guys sooner than you think and I am not sure they will all be there next time round.

    Can i add one of yours to my list, that Grizzly hunting with a muzzeloader has to be one. Along with Duck hunting, also simply building a Kentucky rifle from a kit with all the trimmings, oh and i am forgetting i would really like to get to one of these rendevouzs.

    Ned I dont know how i forgot the RV thing. But i dont want to build one just get in and go. But i then enter the world of fishing and there are so many rivers to stop at and fish.

    Allen thats a very good point ...kids married and grandchildren mean more projects that hopefully will be appreciated over the Ikea kit. So another for the list.

    Todd I sympathize with you it must be tough, can only say keep the spirits high and think of events after that when you can take him fishun.

    Mike, I would have hoped being a teacher would be on your list. Hey i would not mind being a pupil. I think you have lots to pass on to those that will listen and pay attention. You remind me of one of my best mentors.

    Oh Bill you cheating its supposed to be your bucket list, and by the way i am taking for granted i am going to be around for that trip its not that far off. This other stuff is a ways off not sure i will make it but I certainly hope to, especially the log cabin and canoe.

    So come on those of you who have not posted give your list a go and help shake up some other thoughts for the rest of us.

    Its the dreams that keep us going. Anything is possible if you believe it is.
    cheers

    OK Rob, here's a start on my list. I reserve the right to add on as things come to me.


    • Stand on the rim of the Grand Canyon
    • Ride the Durango and Silverton
    • Stay in the Grand Hotel
    • Complete just one woodworking project that does not have a blood stain on it.
    • Finish all of the dozens of projects I have going in the house.
    • to be continued...
