Which ones will you do this summer? Any other suggestions?


  1. Hey I did one of the things on the list tonight! I joined a group for people with Social Anxiety and went to a function. Technically I joined it three months ago but because of my social anxiety I didn't have the courage to go till this time, I had FUN!

    I would like to start a collection of something. I don't know what...I collect shells. Hmm I'll think about it.

  2. Wow, great list Bob ~~~ I will do many many of the things on your list...
    The Zoo, the park, the museum, ballgames, the house, etc. It rather looks like my summer routine with the exception of hiking, biking, and other sports of that nature.

    BTW I read you post on "Money" from last year and we are on the same page Mr. Kansas Bob. ((smile))

    Have a great Sunday!!

  3. I have already done a few and will do quite a few more before summer is over. Think I'll do 1,3,5,8,9,10,14,15,17,20,24,29,30,31,32,33,39.
    I am doing the State Park tomorrow. Having a 3 day R&R. Hubby and I can hardly wait.

  4. I wish I could them all, but summer is my job's busy season. All I'll manage is 10,15,16,33 and 40.
