Before I die, I want to.....

Posted on 08/24/2008 12:04:02 PM PDT by Hacksaw

There was a thread like this on another forum, and it was kinda fun. People were listing the things they would like to have accomplished in their lives, and there were some pretty neat ideas. Try to stay away from thinks like "Having sex with ten Chinese women" (cause after all, who doesn't want to do that).

1) Learn fluent Spanish.

2) Visit Russia

3) Master the guitar

Not necessarily a goal, just a wish...

1. See Ted Kennedy jailed for the death of Mary Jo.

My goal was to finish writing a novel. Got that done.

My next wish would be to see the GOP start acting like conservatives. I won’t hold my breath.

Actually I’ve been thinking about this a lot lately and I’ve decided that I don’t really have anything I really want to do.

I’m good.

Just ten Chinese women??? You mean you havn’t done that? I thought everybody had! : )

I would love to walk the entire length of the Great Wall of China. I’ve done a few miles of it, but think it would be fantastic to do it all.

My vote is for getting Vandy, UVA, and Mizzou gals all in the same room at the same time and managing to single-handedly (well, maybe double-handedly) convert all of them to conservatism.

I can dream, can't I?

I personally would really like to avoid having sex with any women at all!
But, I would really like to:
1. See the Holy Land
2. Have grandkids
3. Move back to New Mexico
4. Have a Best In Show golden retriever
5. Have a photo published in a national magazine

Boy, those are pretty self serving!

That’s all I can think of.

1. Own a 40 foot sailboat free and clear.

2. Sail the Oceans of the world and explore out of the way places

3. Visit Machu Picchu (Hacksaw, we could share expenses and save a bundle)

4. Publish a book of my nature photography (it’s in the works, but far from finished)

5. Find a bride to share my life with.

Live in Florida and watch the sun rise over the Atlantic every morning.

I did live there for five years and know how soul touching those sunrises are over the sea, waves lapping at my feet. Gets every day off to a magnificent start, both calming and inspiring.

I’m moving back in October or November. 8>)

I’m good too.

I became a Christian 17 months ago and that was the best thing that ever happened to me.

I’d like to remarry - this time to a good Christian man but if isn’t God’s will for me so be it.

I just want to do the mission that God has planned for me - whatever that is.

Thank you, patton, I hope you enjoy it....if and when!

I was blessed with volumes of salvaged family letters from the Civil War era which had been archived by the University of Oklahoma. It was just too interesting to not put down in one place.

See my 14 year old grandson walk and talk again. Watch him do those neat tricks with his skateboard again. Hear his ask me just once more “Hey Grandma, can I spend the night with you?” and know that he’ll be ok again. Have him look at me and know that he knows who I am.

In random order...

1. See my children and their children living happy and successful lives, and serving the Lord.

2. Visit Israel and walk where Jesus walked.

3. See my own small local business become a successful nationwide venture.

4. See my lost family members give their lives to Christ.

5. To see a propserous America with her people valuing human life and liberty.

6. Know that I have personally made a positive impact on my friends, family, and even complete strangers.

7. Overcome my obscene fear of heights and flying and get on a plane then jump out of one with my son.

That's all I can think of.

2. Landscape my yard, mostly with flowers

3. Do all I can to build God’s Kingdom
