    Visit Auschwitz/Birkenau
    Learn to play the piano
    Learn to fence
    Work in a florist shop

    What about you...?

    I've done that. Probably one of the most important and devastating things I've ever done. I still get chills and tear up when I think about it, many years later. Knowing about, reading about, seeing photos of what happened there is bad. But, actually being there. Seeing the different buildings and their contents. Walking in the footsteps of so many who were murdered - it's just numbingly horrifying.

    As for something I would like to do, I would like to live in Tuscany and travel around Europe at my leisure. These things don't have to be things we could actually ever do? Right?

    Have a huge bathtub and great bathroom. Perfect for 5 hour baths complete with candles, champagne and a supply of paperback books. Apartment bathtub doesn't quite cut it.
    Learn to play the violin
    Take voice lessons
    Retire now, leaving lots of time in the day for skating while everyone else is at school or work
    Live on a houseboat
    Buy a house on the lake.
    Travel around the world to experience opera in differing settings.
    But greatest fantasy . Get to put on my skates and stand on the ice near the boards for even 10 minutes of an elite Mens Practice session. To feel the speed and power and be on that side of the boards would be a dream come true.

    Win Powerball so that I can do all the things I listed above.

    -Travel.....Visit Machu Pichu, Antartica, Japan, Eastern Europe, Russia, Turkey, Greece, Israel, Egypt, Portugal plus others
    -See more areas of England, Wales, Scotland, Ireland, N Ireland, France, Spain, Italy, US, Canada
    -Spend more time on hobbies: reading, photography, scrapbooking
    -Attend more skating
    -Meet that special someone
    -Cook and bake more

    -Do something that scares me

    Nubka - Anne Frank house is very worth visting. I went as an adult, and could not believe how much of the book (read in jr hight) just popped up in my memory. I did go to Dachau also, and though sad/horrific, as a citizen of the world, it was something to see and reflect on. I am not sure how to word it, but it was a place one should go and pray/acknowledge.

    Just renovated the master bath (the shower was leaking). And we just ripped out the Jacuzzi, because in 25 years, I think we used it 4 times. Put in a make-up/vanity area instead.

    . When I had more time, I used to stay in the tub for hours at a time. I had a great old bathroom in KCMO. Deep, deep tub with a window over the middle of it. I used to love to open the window in the winter and fill the tub with hot water. Candles, classical music and that cold fresh air pouring in. Those were the days.

    I want to see my children and their families happy and comfortably settled.
    I want to dance at my granddaughters' weddings, should they get married.
    I want to dance on my 50th wedding anniversary (which could possibly be around the time a granddaughter gets married?).
    Anything after that is gravy.
