Family and Friends is my everyday journal. Captain's Log is where I pontificate on religion and politics.

Todays topic is: Stuff on my bucket list.
1. Golf at Saint Andrews in Scotland. 
2. Visit England, Scotland and Ireland.
3. Take tour of Italy and Greece.
4. Tour Paris and spend a week at the Louvre. 
5. Visit Boston to travel the path of Samuel Prescott, who actually made the trip to Lexington and Concorde. Then Bunker and Breeds Hill, where William Prescott stupidly fought the British.
6. Finish A Private Pain, now serialized on this blog.
7. Write a fictionalized history book on Matthew Fontaine Maury  My wife's maiden name is Maury, and he's a prominent figure in her family tree. I've found his life fascinating.
8. Live long enough to see my first great-grandchild. Eldest grandson just turned 18, maybe...
9. Pay off my mortgage.
10. Live to be 100.

What excellent goals! When you make your travels, I hope you share pictures. :)

Thanks, Berthold, but I'm afraid a European tour is only a dream.

Lydia said...

I want to live to see my 100th birthday, too. May all of your other dreams come true as well.

P M Prescott said...

Wonderful thought, Lydia.

Great goals, especially the travel. I'm hoping to go back to Scotland later in the year. The Highlands are stunning.

Lucky you, Tanith.
