"As she stood looking at it, wondering why there was a lamp-post in the middle of a wood and wondering what to do next, she heard a pitter patter of feet coming toward her..." (C S Lewis, The Chronicles of Narnia)

Do you have a bucket list?

For those of you who may not know, a bucket list is a list of things you want to do or experience before you "kick the bucket," or die.  Here are some suggestions for your bucket list.  Some of these I have already done, others I am hoping to do some day.
