How many have you done? Feel free to steal this and do your own.

Hmmmm -- I've done a lot of stuff. I'm more adventuresome than I thought -- or plain damn lucky or crazy or both!!!

Happy Blogging!!!!!!


  1. This is really interesting, Kay. Thanks for sharing. You've done a lot and you've got time to still do a lot more. I'll have to check out Judy's site.

  2. Nice one. I can say I've done 44 from teh list, including the skinny dip... Never again!

  3. I was in transit through Hawaii three years ago, en route to Toronto. I got my passport stamped there.

    Does that count, Kay? !!!

  4. Thanks for the link, Kay. It's nice to read your list. Maybe someday you and I can both add to ours!

  5. This was cool to read Kay, thanks!

  6. I've done 58 out of the 100. I did this meme a while back and thought it was really fun! :)

  7. Great list! It says a lot about you. I'd like to know why you had your pic in the paper (if you wanna tell me).

    I like to think I saved someone's life (without knowing it).

  8. Hmm! Forty-two. Some I wish I hadn't and hope not to repeat. Quite a few of the remaining items I would love to do. Interesting list.

  9. I think you should bungee jump next!

  10. Fran: #37 is my goal.

    Jams: Same here -- once was enough!

    David: That counts!!!

    Judy: Uh-huh! I want #37

    Dave: Thanks!!

    Lynnette: Indeed it is!

    Scarlet: Actually, I've had my picture in the paper lots of times. I always won the district spelling bee as a kid and later when I got my college scholarship. They did a feature on our stroke support group and, as president, I was interviewed. And I've served as an officer/chairperson of various civic and social organizations, I've had my photo in the paper a bunch of times for that.

    Mary: I feel the same way. A lot of things were done in the name of a callow and misspemt youth. LOL

    Rinkly: I doubt it!!! It's not recommended for stroke patients.

  11. thanks for sharing! I posted my own list this morning

  12. I love your signature image!

    The quill is a nice touch.

    I, too, did a similar list a few years ago, though I doubt I have added much to the tally.

    There's always tomorrow, Scarlett, m'dear!

  13. Looking at your list, Kay, I see I've done 59 (but then, I AM almost 65 years old). Of your red ones, I have done 21, blue ones 38.

    I wonder how many of us it would take to cover the full 100 between us?

  14. Bev: Cool!!!!

    Pattie: Thanks!!! I'll send you the link where I found it!

    Stu: There are things on that list I would NEVER do and a bunch I'd like to do but can't afford. Sigh.

    Annie: I had a very busy, misspent youth. LOL

  15. I'll blog for you Kay, on something I'll never get to do, on january 21st, OK?

  16. Go for it, Stu!!!! And I'll do the same! What I meant was that there are some things I just never want to do -- like bungee jumping. However there are some things on that list that I'll never be able to do and I'll blog on it. Anyone else interested? We can make January 21st "Things I'll never Get to Do" Day.
