Trip-ing

Virginia.  Oregon.  Washington.
Texas...and the list goes on and on...

Everyone should visit each of our magnificent states.  They are all on my 'bucket' list.

So where did the term 'bucket list' come from anyway?

From the Urban Dictionary Site:
A list of things you want to do before you die. I believe the term comes from a Rob Reiner movie called "The Bucket List" in which 2 terminally ill men (played by Morgan Freeman and Jack Nicholson) go on a road trip to do the things they wanted to do before they died (kicked the bucket)...or it could be that the term pre-dated the movie (?) and that was the reason they called the movie what they did.

Okay.
Mom wants to see horse racing so we'll be making a rip to West Virginia to check out racing.


Meanwhile.
I'm taking hikes and walks enjoying the countryside.
