My Bucket List

What I want to achieve before I'm 75-80 and too
feeble-minded to remember what a Bucket List is.

DONE

  • Climb to the top of the Empire State Building in New York City.

  • Climb to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris France.

  • Visit Buenos Aires, Argentina.

  • Marry a Brit or Canadian, at least once.

  • Meet Sir David Frost.

  • Meet Sir Edmund Hillary.

  • Meet Bruce Cockburn.

  • Meet Roger Abbott of the Royal Canadian Air Farce.

  • Meet Peter Gzowski and appear as a guest on CBC Morningside with him (2 times).

  • Receive a genuine marriage proposal from a British lord.

  • Study at Oxford University in England.

  • Study at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City.

  • Host my own talk radio show.

  • Own a home of my own.

  • Do voice-over work on radio and TV commercials.

  • Get paid to write for national trade magazines... because my high school English teacher claimed I would never write well enough to ever be published. (Some teachers project their own inadequacies onto their students.)

  • Find my half-brother who was given up for adoption when he was a year old.

  • Find my half-sister with whom I hadn't had contact in 16 years.

  • Find my mother who has been "missing" in the Dallas, Texas area since 2007. (Deceased 5-31-11)


STILL TO DO

  • Meet and have a private conversation about activism with Sir Bob Geldof.

  • Voice a TV commercial with Peter Coyote.

  • Build a charitable foundation with assets of $1,000,000 to assist writers who, like me, were forbidden to write/speak/publish.

  • Study for a Master's and Doctoral degrees.

  • Publish 3 more major books that receive international acclaim.

  • Be a contestant on Jeopardy!

  • Find true love.
