What should a 68-year-old guy have on his bucket list?
March 26, 2014
Are you an older baby-boomer who is in his or her mid to late 60s?
Do you have a list of things that you want to do before you reach the front door of eternity?
I turn 68 in a little over five months and I find myself trying to decide what I want to do before I reach the front doors of eternity.
Super-wife and I both saw the movie Bucket List and we were entertained by two old guys trying to find themselves and to find experiences that would bring them fulfillment. They travelled around the world to a lot of exotic places. Do you remember where they went and what they did? They climbed one of the tallest mountains. Didn't they go to the Great Wall of China?
I think they had a long list of things they wanted to do? Can I develop a list of five, ten or more? I've got some ideas. I signed up for bucketlist.org where people from around the world share the items on their lists. I thought I might find some inspiration.
One item I saw was "Getting A Tattoo." How about a heart on my arm with my wife's name on it? I don't think so. I'd make the point better by loading and unloading the dishwasher for a week.
