Only four bucket list items remaining?

bucket lists
a friend's book from a noted author. I've written 6k posts about living before you die.

Yeah man summer, the good old days

confidently setting the stage for a great season is our responsibility

Can’t help but think about how important confidence is, after watching the American Idol sing offs this year. What does that have to do with Summer? Everything man. Everything. As the clock ticks off each precious day, each precious week, each month, each season…

Yeah, the good old days….
