MEME of the Week (I've got nuttin')

What I’ve Yet To Do:

11. Bungee jump. Wouldn’t this be a rush!
12. Visit Paris.
15. Adopt a child.
17. Walk to the top of the Statue of Liberty. I’ve ridden by it on the “Beasty Boat.” That’s probably as close as I’ll ever get.
18. Grow my own vegetables. Get serious! No desire.
19. See the Mona Lisa in France. See #12. Never been to Paris.
27. Run a marathon. I once ran a 5K. I can’t run more than a mile these days.
28. Ride in a gondola in Venice. Never been to Venice.
31. Hit a home run. Again, get serious; I was known as a “sure strike out” in junior high.
36. Teach myself a new language. I’ve only been taught by others.
38. See the Leaning Tower of Pisa in person. Never been to Pisa.
42. See Old Faithful geyser erupt.
44. Visit Africa. I would love to. I’d actually love to work in Africa for a year or so.
47. Have my portrait painted. Why would I do this?
50. Go to the top of the Eiffel Tower in Paris. See #12. Never been to Paris.
56. Visit the Great Wall of China. I really have no interest in going to China.
58. Take a martial arts class. No interest. I did take a nude yoga class once.
59. Visit Russia. Maybe someday, but I’ve got a lot of other places I’d like to go first.
63. Get flowers for no reason. I’d be glad to give you my address.
64. Donate blood, platelets or plasma.
65. Go sky diving. I’d love to.
66. Visit a Nazi concentration camp. But I’ve seen a lot of movies about ‘em. Unbelievable.
67. Bounce a check. Thank you for overdraft protection.
74. Tour the Everglades. Joe?
77. Break a bone. I think I might have broken my toe once, but I never went to the doctor.
83. Walk in Jerusalem. Again, it’s WAY DOWN on my list of things to do.
85. Read the entire Bible. And to think that I've got a 10-year perfect attendance pin for Sunday School attendance.
89. Save someone’s life.
90. Sit on a jury. But I did sit through an eight-week trial; God bless the jury.
92. Join a book club.
96. Swim in the Great Salt Lake. I thought you just floated in the Great Salt Lake.
