Not enough time to fill this entire bucket list

DUNCAN — A few years ago, I wrote a piece offering vacation tips to those anxious to get away from the workplace for a while and have what is commonly referred to as “a life.”

Vacations are supposed to be the reward working stiffs receive for their labor, although sometimes the time off you fervently anticipate turns into a catastrophe that leaves you yearning to get back to work.

Anyway, when I was younger, so much younger than today (Sorry, just had a Beatles moment.), I started making a list of the places I wanted to go and things I wanted to do in the USofA. Over the years, my Vacation Bucket List has overflowed with sticky notes containing locales and sites of interest.

I’ve crossed off dozens of those places and activities, but they’re just a drop in the Vacation Bucket List. There’s no chance I’ll accomplish the entire list before kicking that “other” bucket.

But in case you need some, uh, captivating reading material while you’re on v-a-c-a-t-i-o-n, let me share some of my Vacation Bucket List. Here’s a few places I wanna see and things I wanna do:

Should be obvious to those of you who have an inkling about my age that there’s not enough time to complete my Vacation Bucket List. And I’d love for the Lovely Karen to be my companion on these ventures.

But she says she has a list of her own, and believe it or not, some of it differs from mine.

Geez, go figure.
