The Bucket List

[I got this meme from Facebook; it seems like I'm walking down memory lane more than I'm walking anywhere else this week!]

"The Bucket List." Place an X by all the things you've done and remove the X from the ones you have not.

[Fudgelady's note: I have removed the instructions for tagging people, because I hate tagging and figure people will try this if they want to. Also, I've written notes next to the entries when I wanted to say a little something more... :-) ]
