A Photo a Week Challenge: Bucket List

The Grand Canyon

Even before the term “Bucket List” became popular, my husband and I had been wanting to go to the Grand Canyon.  After about 30 years of dreaming about it, we finally made it in 2010.  So we can cross that off the Bucket List……or can we…?  We were there in early May, we saw the stunning South Rim.  We missed seeing the North Rim because it was still closed for winter.  So the Grand Canyon is still on the list.

Share Your World – 2014 Week 43



What is your favorite time of day?

     Morning….yes definitely morning.  It’s when I have the most energy.

What’s your favorite charitable cause and why?

     I like to give support when disasters happen.  Floods, tornadoes, earthquakes, etc.  Why?  Because people are caught off guard and they are devastated.

How do you like to spend a rainy day?

     I like to sit and watch it rain.  I love the rain!

When writing by hand do you prefer to use a pencil or pen?

     Pencil.  Why?  It’s just plain comfortable.
