Those "Bucket Lists"

You know as we get older we start to think about all the things that we wanted to do, but just didn't get around to doing. Depending on how daring we have been in our life that "bucket list" can either be extremely long or very short. I for one have been quietly checking off items on my list for the last 10 years, and was totally surprised when my SIL told me that he also had a "bucket list" going and he isn't even 40 yet! One of those "bucket list" items that he was lucky enough to check off this summer while visiting me over the fourth was catching a tarpon using a fly rod. Here are the photos to prove that he deserves that new check on his "bucket List" for catching a pretty large tarpon using a fly rod.

A New Kind of Paperdolls

Have been playing Star Dolls with my oldest grand daughter. You can design a doll that can be you or in my case my imaginary you and then pick out clothes and accessories for your doll. The young ladies on line are really into fashion and know their designers...they open their own stores and design some of their own fabric which they turn into clothes. I joined for the month that my grand daughter was here...called myself the one eyed Grammy (had to have a handle) you know... I have a great bod because they don't do fat and dumpy on the site...added some "Kat Von D" tatoos, I always wanted one but was to chicken to get one, and I'm all set to strut my "imaginary" stuff. Every morning I check into the StarDoll site and change my hair color, get a new haircut...also put on a new outfit. It has been lots of fun playing along with Camille.
