Bucket list 11-20

notebookWelcome to the second installment of my Bucket List. I have even more to mark off on this list. I’ve visited with Nora a couple of times. She’s lovely. And if I’m every *rich*, I plan to start the Just Because Foundation. I’ll blog about it one of these days.

11. Be owned by another Newfoundland. Dog, not islander. 😉

12. Visit Mulberry at least once a year. Did this for several years but those trips are done. 😦

13. Meet Nora Roberts.

14. Trips to New Orleans. (Okay, this is sort of done, as I keep going back as often as I can. New Orleans is a favorite place.)

15. Collect and read all of the Scarlet Pimpernel novels and short stories. I’ve met the Baroness’s granddaughter and great-granddaughter. I’ve read the original novel and want to eventually get them all. Great fun! This is mostly a partial but so close, I’m marking it off. Thanks to an acquaintance in England, I have almost all of them now and slowly working my way through them. 😀

16. Get a new Highlander. (SUV not man-in-kilt, though that would be lurvely!) Though it’s not *new* any more. 😆

17. Pay off all family debts and stay that way. (headed there. House is paid off. Cars are almost paid off. That leaves just college loans and some other consumer loans.)

18. Spend at least a week in the Southwestern desert taking photographs. (Santa Fe would be nice for starts followed by Flagstaff and other places west)

19. Actually start doing photography again. (This was something else when originally written and while I didn’t cross it off, it no longer applies. Plus, I really should re-hone my photography skills!)

20. Have a million dollars to give away to “Just Because” people and causes.

Who has fun plans for the weekend? Lawyer Guy is doing Ham Radio Stuff(tm) and I think I have a dinner to attend with him tomorrow night. My lack of knowledge means I’m playing the weekend by ear. 😉 Have a great one!

    Add Alburqueque to that lis for photography, The zoo and botanical gardens were amazing when I was there, as was Old Towne.
    We had the mortage paid off, but it was cheaper to do a new one than pay the interest on studen loans. Sadly.
    I love the Scarlet Pimpernal. I must re-read it. Or maybe find it on audio (the original story).
    I’ve never been to New Orleans. Maybe someday. although I’d rather go with someone that knows the place.

      We’ve spent quite a bit of time in Albuquerque and considered moving there at one point. It’s the “gateway” to the SW desert as far as I’m concerned. 😉

      We got in a very low interest rates, luckily. My portion is almost paid off and then we’ll double up on The Only’s part.

      There are either 8 or 9 Pimpernel books. I have six of them. They’re wonderfully “old fashioned.:” 😀

      New Orleans is actually pretty easy to get around in and you don’t even have to leave the Quarter. If you do, like a day trip to the bayous or Plantation country, then there are tours that will pick you up at your hotel. I’d love to have a place there. Not really sure I could live there year round because…tourists, but there’s just something about the place that calls to me.

Got something to say?
