    You have had a fabulous life, woman! Not too much to add to your bucket list…I feel fortunate to have been able to tick off so many as well. Fun list.

  5. Love these questions. I’m sure I didn’t tick off as many as pinetown2000 did, but I’ve done my share! And I’d be on a cruise right now if I could afford it! Think I’ll send it to some friends of mine and see how they do. Love ya Kiddo!
