Bucket List

So, I copied this from a friend, who had copied it from her sister-in-law, who, I am sure, had copied it from someone else. And this is the song that never ends, it just goes on and on, my friends. . . . . .

But it's fun, it's a quasi Bucket List and it means that I don't have to think to write a blog post today. It is Friday after all. No Thinking Day.
