Saturday Night Genealogy Fun: A "Bucket List" Meme

I was surprised at this week's Saturday Night Genealogy Fun from Randy Seaver.  It's the same list he asked about on March 5, 2016:

(1) A "Bucket List" meme went around Facebook several years ago where you put an "X" in the box if you have done it!  

(2) Copy and paste it into your own blog post, in a comment to this post, or on Facebook and fill it out (erase my entries and insert your own).

(3) Put a comment on this blog post to tell me where I can read all about you!

It appears that in the past four years I have added one item to the list but removed another:
