Have you updated your bucket list?


We should be going to places and having experiences because we’ve earned the right by raising our families and working hard.

Those who’ve sacrificed for others – our family, our employer, etc. – deserve to enjoy our own lives and put ourselves first for a change.

 I hope you’re working off your own “bucket list”.

 Today, I have four items in mind for 2013 – a trip to Gettysburg National Military Park, an ocean cruise, a ride in a hot air balloon and a tree house for my grandchildren.

 My first list included a trip to the Outer Banks of North Carolina. We’ve now done it four times with our entire family.
