Funny thing, growing up I had a bucket list of things I wanted to see like the Pyramids, Tower of London, Canucks game, Expos game (later Blue Jays after the demise of mon Expos) etc. and now that I have completed that early list (even if it took 50 years to see a Canucks game) my ‘wants’ have changed radically.

Maybe it is age, or arthritis or watching the parade of people leaving this life that makes me realize my ‘new’ bucket list is far less pretentious than it was at 17. Here goes my 10 item bucket list as of today (in no particular order):

  • A bonfire on the beach at Oyster Bay with marshmallows on sticks and just about everyone I know, family and friends to come ‘partay on the beach’.
  • The 50th Anniversary Reunion for Mount Doug ’75 in 2025.
  • The 50th Anniversary Celebration for 744 Comm Tp / 741 Comm Sqn in 2025 (busy year!).
  • To actually finish ‘K-Triple 4’ (ok this a bit egotistical but I think people might like it).
  • To find out what life is all about post-IT career (*GASP*)
  • To take Miss Frieda and Sam for a long low-tide hike to where K-Triple 4 used to be (and beyond).
  • Golf with Dodie and Vic, mostly cuz I hear soo much about it and deep down I still think I am better…
  • To conquer watercolour pencils before I lose my marbles.
  • To not have any reason whatsoever to open social media more than once a week (Yes I can do it!).
  • And finally… to work in a food truck making meals for homeless and disadvantaged people.

So nothing world beating in this bucket list, more about the people and places I have missed over the years and some of the simple, but fun things I used to do.

How about you? Do you have a bucket list you would like to share? Send me a note via the comments or email me. 🙂

One thought on “The Ubiquitous Bucket List (as of 24-7-23)”
  1. I agree as we get older our bucket lists change … less material stuff and more meaningful stuff … one of my bucket list items is to travel over to Scotland, Ireland, and Wales and reconnect with distant family and to search to my hearts content in all the old cemeteries!!!
