Thirteen Things to Do-- Life Ticklist

Before I'm 125...
[Too much to do to leave before then...]

And not all in one day, either!!

A recent self-examination gently lent to me by a fellow blogger made me take some personal stock. This list will be expanded from my years-ago written original 10 things...
And again, not all in one day... hell, some of them I don't even know yet!
So, maybe today I'll list at least THREE THINGS I'll do before my life is moved to the Beyond...

Ready?

  • Sail a boat to Hawaii. Captain the sail. What-- 18 (if you're smooth and typical?) days on a sloop... some few less on a catamaran..
  • Spend three or four months on Waikiki Beach-- summer months, to advantage the primary storm/ surf direction. Heck-- combine it with the sail-- only I don't want the expense of living at the Hawaii Yacht Club...
  • Multi-day, Multi-pitch climb in Camp 4 in Yosemite. Astroman...
  • Two weeks canoe-camping the Boundary Waters... Heck, give me all four-- I mean, sure, I'll have to duck [Swan! Goose!] over to the neighboring park for a few after my 1st 14 days... probably need some laundry and fishing time by then, anyhow...
  • y'wanna nother one? Hmm... -- Okay-- B.A.S.E. jump. Any suggestions where here in the contiguous...? Legal, and all, of course...
Well, folks... busy Friday... Love the three-day weekends-- sorry, those of you laboring away. Come join me in the garden, or help wash the car... I won't get ya too terribly wet, playing with the hose...

Slainte!

Sounds like a fine list, Cygnus. I hear Hawaii is beautiful. I've never been there, but I like the native flowers.

Sure, why not, I'll help wash the car.

Now Lady Felinae, you DO understand this is a "no-shirts, no shoes.." full-service wash, including inside polishing, do you not??

But then again, it IS Hawaii we're talking about, too ! ha!

Um... or am I getting the list confuzed?
Hmm...
Wishful thinkin', y'reckon?

Felinae said...

Haha!

Bring on the buffing mitts.

And some fine Wax right here, M'Lady...

A Mr. Zoggs flavor, I believe...

Or prefer ye the Hardshell polish?

Felinae said...

Mr. Zoggs? now that's a name I haven't heard in awhile.

That one will do or perhaps the bubble gum wax?

Smiles~Felinae~

Cygnus MacLlyr said...

Mr Zoggs didn't make the Bubblegum-- nice fragrance though... but, if you need something to chew and.. umn... you know... uh, make bubbles with [I just can't bring myself to say blow here, folks! I can't!!!], then by all means bring some... along.

I am sooo in on the BASE jump, tho' I'd most likely pee myself...

I'd love to spend extended time on
Kauai and just soak in everything local

The boat thing and camp thing would be fun for a while...then there'd be mutiny...there's always mutiny. :)

Peace - Rene

Lady Rene-- YOU'D B.A.S.E.-jump?!?
I knew I love you!!!

Yeah, well, there is mutiny... one must carefully pick crew if they are to eventually be overtaken by them...

Peace back at ya, Lady Rene...
