I'll start:

2. A summer place
3. To have my kids serve me (for a change) at their dinnertable(s) after they are both successful and happy (darn, ok; swap #1 & #3)
4. For hubby and I sit at the beach in the same spot as when we were 16 and reminicse at age 80 (and still like eachother...lol.)
5. Die after a happy retirement, in my sleep (Kindle in hand, a smile on my face) of natural causes; knowing that the economy is booming
there is world peace.

OK, I'll go. Not in any particular order:

1. Own a cabin in the woods.
2. Graduate from college (I'm a part-time, "non-traditional" student so it'll take me a while but I'm determined)
3. See the Grand Canyon and Hoover Dam
4. Retire when I'm still young enough to enjoy it.
5. See the Alaskan rainforest before it's completely gone.

Being as I am, I know the order of my list is going to change as responbilities start increasing. (also with me being in school still.)
I still don't know what order this would be in...
1. Spend a year travelling in Europe (must go to: France, Spain, England, Germany, Italy, and...where's that list.)
2. Open my own cafe/bakery (using my mom's awesome recipes, also after working in nursing for ___yrs.)
3. Do a year or two of nursing overseas
4. meet "The/My Guy", get married, and start a family (preferrably in that order)
5. Actually finish and release one of my stories (even if its one of my screenplays)
.
.

.
6. Buy mom a easy-to-use GSP device that tells her the directions so Dad and I don't have to drive her EVERYWHERE. (Usually its Dad who drives her.)

Been to NYC many times; Jim...take LR.  She'll put on her best Salma costume for you for doing so.  Take her to radio city; then go for a little twirl on skates in the plaza. (by the way; Salma has it all over the other two birds).

The first time we took our kids to NY...they stood in front of the buildings belted out the mary tyler moore theme song and threw their hats in the air (it probably wasn't the same building; but the lie sounded good at the time) Grrrrrrrrreat just great...now who can turn the world on with her smile is stuck in my head.  Ok; now I'm going to bed.  Goodnight!!

Just a quibble, but Mary Tyler-Moore took place in Minneapolis not New York, so it wasn't the same building for sure.

And would you believe there is a stupid bronze statue of her throwing her hat in the air on the same corner as she did in the show.

There's an Outback at Walden Pond?

Did the Bloomin' Onion inspire Transcendentalism?
