Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: A “Bucket List” Meme

I love when Saturday comes around each week because it means it is time for Saturday Night Genealogy Fun with Randy Seaver. 🙂

This week’s challenge:

Your mission, should you decide to accept it (cue the Mission Impossible music here) is to:

I have to qualify a couple of my answers:

Yes, I have two piercings, but they are my pierced ears. I wasn’t sure if “piercings” was limited to places like noses and belly buttons. 🙂

Yes, I’ve driven a manual transmission car, but only under protest. My husband used to love stick shift cars and insisted I take some driving lessons on one because one of our cars at that time was a stick shift. I took the lessons, promptly forgot all about it and have never driven a manual transmission car since then.

Like Randy, I guess I’ve led a somewhat sheltered life, but I am the first to admit I’m not adventurous, so you’ll never catch me bungee jumping or even in a helicopter for that matter!

Thank you, Randy, for a meme challenge this week. 🙂

  1. ‘Watched someone die’? I mean, really? ‘Driven over 100 mph’? I hope it’s done in the the Salt Lake flats and not in my neighborhood, ( I think the ‘speeding ticket’ one automatically comes with that). ‘Stolen any traffic signs’ (sigh). Are these adults coming up with this stuff? Aren’t there a tad more meaningful things to do before kicking the bucket? Oh, I guess having someone watch you die.
