It was fun, but I did add a bit of a spin.

MightyMom said...

OK, did I miss that small act of generosity for Advent you were gonna post??

MightyMom said...

Dear Pam, that was really fun to read and I enjoyed meeting you all over again. I am so glad to know you. Hope you get to do many more things that your heart desires before you leave this world. love you, connie

Why does the list stop at 99 instead of 100?

Some of these things are things I would NOT want to do.

Yes, I have seen the Bucket List movie -- it's a great movie with a great message.

Hey...I've never bungee jumped or served on a jury either! Maybe we're twins!

By the way - I LOVE your new header. Unfortunately, I am no good at centering them either, as you can tell by looking at mine!
