Bucket List


A Very Popular Blog I have found seems to be the Bucket List….

I have noticed, however just by the contents of the list that they are made by young moms or soon to be moms…

I thought that I would give an older rendition of the bucket list which is not in any way making light of their lists at all it is simply a list of how things change when you get older and how things suddenly take on a new light and one of the delights is when you wake up in the morning and you have not “kicked the bucket” during  the course of the night lol…

That is a really big plus when you get older… Trust me on that one lol…

On to the list…

First is going out to purchase your bucket and remembering to put it on your grocery list… then remembering to take the grocery list off of the refrigerator with the coupons that you have clipped to it…

Now by this age, you have seen a great many of these buckets and have purchased so many and have actually left a ton accidentally behind also… Even done a few with the grand children lol…

Every time I move into a new home it seems like I purchase one of these and build a stone wishing well to go with it from area stone… I am not sure what I am wishing for or why I do it.  I guess it is just Tradition and we can’t be breaking a tradition now can we…lol

This has been on my shopping list for the longest time…I actually used a pitcher filled with ice to chill a bottle of wine for a house guest the last time she came over… We do not drink.  I have a collection of wines because my daughter sends me wine for Christmas every year faithfully.

Someday I will find that perfect Ice Bucket I am certain… till then, the pitcher does work…

Now except for the fact that I have to pop allergy pills to eat this, it is a great idea for a bucket if you do not feel like cooking…lol… does not make many bucket lists though lol…

Now for the useless bucket award …

It is pretty in its own way, but what on earth would you really use it for?  Let’s be honest here… a true dust collector for those who have a real problem with chronic shopping…

Then there is the retired man’s bucket… ideal for what ever a retired man really does…

Oh yeah just wheel it with your foot…

I can’t forget hubby’s bucket hat as now that he is not carrying the same hair load that he used to, the sunburn on the top of the head can be painful and dangerous…

He does own several so they can be washed frequently to rid them of the perspiration scent that they do attract lol…

Now even I am too young to remember the Bucket 10 car…although men who retire now collect them…thankfully, not mine…

I would not want to have to pay the insurance premium on it and love the pick up truck to be honest with you…lol

Have to admit my hubby did not quite retire to become a bucket head per say…lol…

He has been known to strum a guitar on occasion, and has worn a Tupperware Canister for a video before… lol… I don’t think that is quite the same though…

Well even though we both own a Fendor Guitar, neither are a T bucket…

But then this is also a T Bucket and we do not have this either lol…

Imagine that lol…

There are some things in life that are really cute, however I am glad that I do not own…

This is one of them…cute to look at dangerous to play with…

So that is my rendition of my bucket list…and I finished it before I kicked the bucket too….woo hoo….

Sometimes you just have to look at the lighter side of life…

Have a great day and always keep your bucket half full…never know when you might need to put out a fire lol…

Trina Had Company Today


This is Trina

This is Trina…I have spoken of her in past posts… She has had just an exhausting day today… She is so used to having a set routine.  She could not even finish her dog bone there on the floor near her before she went for her nap..

Early in the morning, the door bell rang.  Not expecting anyone we thought perhaps it was a customer.  Much to our surprise, it was the lawn care service asking if they could mow today rather than on Thursday…Great idea!  Now we can go somewhere on Thursday.

Not like hubby with just one lawn tractor

Hubby and Trina take their usual Monday run to the land fill and back a big five minute run, but a big surprise today cause an extra stop at the Post Office…oops…break of cycle…

She deals with it and is glad to go for ride with head out the window…

She does not like our new lawn care as she can’t chase these lawn mowers and there are two…one in the front and one in the back so she sits right next to hubby till they have finished and left…

Front yard front half

Front yard side half

Then she walks the parameter of yard with the two cats to inspect what has happened…

Only the back though, as she is not allowed in the front…too many cars!

Once satisfied that life is okay again, she retires into the store to sit and munch on a bone and relax.

A big red truck pulls into the yard…must be a customer…she takes a bone to the door to greet as always.  This time, instead of sending Trina to the back, hubby opens the front screen door and lets her greet the people…

There are four short men and a woman.  Trina knows the woman, but not the short people.  They look like playmates.  The short men go to the back yard and the running begins.  The short men soon find the apple tree.

Their adventure begins and as they fill up bags to take home and take turns playing Frisbee with Trina, the afternoon slowly progresses.

Tiny apples

Top short man in tree

More short men in tree

Third short man in tree

Just some of the bags of apples

Short men holding their bags of apples

Trying to get them to smile lol

 

Trina comes back to the floor in the store to lay down only to have one of the short men beckon her to come and play as she looks to hubby for help while she is returning to the group.

Following a photo session, the short men load back in the big red truck to leave as Trina has already found her spot on the floor in the store along with DC the cat to rest from a really exhausting day.

He acted just as tired as Trina lol

We have not told Trina that they are coming back tomorrow to visit again…

Thought we would let her rest tonight then surprise her tomorrow…think that is a good idea?

Thank you as always for reading our blog…love being here and sharing…

You know you lead a strange life when


We find it entertaining to exercise our dog Trina in different ways especially now that she is alone after the passing of Sassy (age 15 who died of bone cancer) and Nelly (age 7 who died protecting Sassy from a pack of dogs). Here is a video of my hubby taking Trina for a walk his way…

Yes I know this was a ride…not a walk… but remember…he is retired…
