I had to smile when I saw Bill Clinton's Bucket List.
Here's what he said according to reporter, David Jackson:
"What I'd really like to do, if I could have my wishes, I would like to live to see my own grandchildren," Clinton said today while delivering the keynote address at the 18th International AIDS Conference in Vienna.
"And I'd like to live to know that all the grandchildren of the world will have the chance in the not too distant future to live their own dreams and not die before their time."
Clinton is getting closer to his own grandkids; daughter Chelsea is scheduled to be married later this month.
That's the "A list," added Clinton, who turns 64 next month. There's also a "B list" of stuff that "would be fun to do but doesn't amount to a hill of beans whether I get to do it or not."
That list is topped, so to speak, by Mount Kilimanjaro, the highest peak in Africa.
"I'd like to climb Kilimanjaro before the snows melt," Clinton said. "I'd like to run a marathon before I give out. There's lots of things I'd like to do but it doesn't really matter whether I do them."
Art is laughing because he's got three of the four done. Granted there's a plural to the grandkids and that hasn't happened yet, but at least we've got our KC, and we can only keep hoping for the children of the world to have better lives and work toward it.
So what's on my Bucket List? This link explains what a Bucket List is. (Basically, stuff you want to accomplish before you kick the bucket.)
I do have the Family Genealogy project that I am working on.
How pitiful! I can't think of a thing. Art keeps dragging us off to see different places so traveling isn't a Bucket List thing. Whatever we want to see he'll eventually get us there. Right now he's planning for Yellowstone, Glacier and back to Japan. We'd like to see Ireland, China and the rest of the Far East.
Hmmmmm... so what else do I want to do?
Oh, for goodness sake! I don't know, and I've been sitting here thinking and thinking. I give up. Do you have a Bucket List? What's at the top of yours?
