Thirteen Complete. Umm, yea; about THAT...

Drumroll, Please!!!

And how to conclude a lifetime's worth of achievements in thirteen easily-written, bulleted "here's my list and I'm skickin' to it" thingamagigs?

EASY: MATHEMATICS.

Thirteenth on my list of Thirteen Things To Do Before I'm 125 Years Old And Have To Check Out is...

THIRTEEN GOALS

Let's take a look at these two words, shall we?
T-H-I-R-T-E-E-N W-O-R-D-S
is made up of thirteen letters.

I originally thought of leaving #13 Open, kind of an 'everything else' [to borrow a friend's phrasing of the concept], but...

That would be too... EASY. And not leave me any writing fun-- I mean, assignments, sure!

So, I shall take the original "Thirteen" [okay, 12...] and expound each by thirteen...

Starting, tomorrow, with the first 'dot'...
  • SAIL A BOAT TO HAWAII
Wonder what thirteen things a man, solo or with a first mate, set sail on an 18-day tour, could do...

I know a couple of the four or so readers out there know summat of sailing and the Mara...So forgive me in advance if my list on the morrow comes across as fanciful or otherwise fantastically lacking...

And I ain't responsible for sea-sickness, neither!

Slante on this Freya's Day Nacht, Folks!

That whole Thirteen words/goals math is some serious magic...

And yes I counted...

Have a lovely weekend Sir, you have a beautiful mind.

Peace - Rene

It's your dream, Sir - and dreams don't have to be detailed or even accurate to be worth striving for.

Mizz Rene is right - that's some ju-ju you're doing...and you have a beautiful mind.

Look forward to reading your future lists.

May I humbly suggest that one of those 13 boating goals be to *not* make the news because the Coast Guard had to rescue you from poor planning. Like sailing around the Horn of Africa in winter type planning. 15 minutes of fame would be fun - "I know him" but you are smarter than that. Me, I'd have to begin with learn to swim.

Lady Rene--

You have a beautiful way of making folks smile...

Thanks, Woman.

Well, Steph...

I can swim, but I'm hoping to do enough good preparing to not have to rely on that skill HA!

I've studied aspects of the journey for years; now, to learn some mechanics...
!!!

Thanks for popping in, Lady Stephanie!

Okay, Lady Kydd...

What's that song you've piqued curiosity with, eh?!?

Kyddryn said...

Well now, if you wander over here to where the yard is shady and the water is sweet, you just might find the whole of the song, posted last night when I realized it was stuck in my head, poor thing...

Shade and Sweetwater,
K (Why yes, that WAS blatant self-promotion...why?)
