    I can help with riding a motorcycle. We can do that as soon as I get back from my kidney transplant. Good list.

    Haven’t you already visited the Caribbean? That cruise you took was a western Caribbean cruise…I like the list… hope I get to do some of that with you… including the 50 lbs.

    Karen & I are up for a cruise w/ you and Marlene. We could knock out 16,18,26 and 31.

    Sounds like a fabulous list!! I wrote a “bucket list”, lol, but I like your name for it better. 🙂

    I have the name of a great place for clam chowder on the Atlantic…in the Boston area for you when you make it up to New England. I also know some great places for Lobster in Maine…you could add that to your list!?
    Look forward to watching you check things off this list!
