Like a lot of people, I have a list of things I’d like to do before I die – A.K.A. my bucket list.

For the most part it’s pretty boring stuff, but they are things I’d really like to be able to accomplish. In no particular order, here are five things from my list.

  • See a baby moose

This one of those things that I’m not really sure why I want to do it. I’ve seen pictures and have access to National Geographic, so it’s not like I have no idea what a baby moose looks like. I’d just like to see one in person.

  • Pick an orange from a tree and eat it

The closest I’ve come to picking oranges was when I picked lemons off the Meyer lemon tree at my aunt and uncle’s house in California when I was a teenager. Given that Florida is much closer than California, I could probably pull this one off with a weekend road trip during the right time of year.

  • Knit a pair of socks

I’m about halfway to this one. I taught myself to knit and have made a few flat things, but I have yet to master knitting in the round.

  • See the sunrise in Sedona, AZ

I’ve seen pictures of the red rock formations in Sedona and, while I’ve flown over the state, the only time I’ve been in Arizona is when I visited the Hoover Dam and the bathrooms on the Nevada side were broken so I had to walk across to Arizona to pee. So that one’s still on my list.

  • Learn how to weld

It’s one of those things I wish I knew how to do but haven’t had time to learn yet. If I truly applied myself I could probably find a class somewhere nearby, but I just haven’t bother so far.

I’ve got other things on my list, but five seems like a good number for now. Most of these are things I could do if I applied myself hard enough, but I  just haven’t done so.
