THE Bucket List

I don’t think I’ve ever made a “list” (well aside from my travelling bucket list.)
The list of things a person must do before turning old and grey and frail.
And I don’t know why I feel compelled to conjure up a list now.
I’m sure I’ll be adding to it over time because I don’t think I’d want to set a limit to all the things I could possibly do. Anyways, here it is so far.
