Meme: What Have You Done In Your Life So Far?

This was a great prompt for remembering all the really wonderful things I've had opportunity to experience. I didn't realize I've done so much. Some of these things I wouldn't care to do but it makes me want to draw up my own Bucket List (things to do before I kick the bucket). If you haven't seen the movie, you should!  

I won't tag anyone on this meme, but it would be fun if you'd play along. If you do, can you put the link in my comments? Copy the list, remove my asterisks (I copied it into Word and did a "replace all"). Then put an asterisk beside the things you've done. Thanks to Lisa Samson (on facebook) for the list.
