Good Wednesday morning Corn Nation!

One of the “Then There’s This” stories I found is about a man who broke some laws because of his bucket list.

Follow Your Dreams, Except Maybe This One : NPR
A driver in Des Moines got what he always wanted. Police tried to pull the man over on I-80. His car had an expired registration. But he refused to stop and led the officers on a chase.

I don’t have a bucket list. If I did, it would probably include a lot of travel. And a greenhouse. And a housekeeper. One of the reasons I don’t have a bucket list is that it is hard for me to be realistic.

How about you? Any bucket list items you want to share?
