Thought it would be interesting to see what everyone has set for their goals and achievements during life. Can be a list of ten or whatever. Maybe you don't have a list and now is the time to make one.

Here is cool quote I received last month:

"If we wait for the moment when everything is ready, we shall never begin."
Ivan Turgenev

Here is what I would like to see, do, or accomplish before my time passes.

1. Raise a loving, successful and God fearing family.

2. Fly in a fighter jet @ mach speeds.

3. Play golf at Pebble Beach (Note: Will do this later in life because you must donate a kidney to be able to play there.)

4. Catch a 30" or better trout.

5. Own a new Corvette that will only leave the garage on weekends. Dry sunny ones.

6. Drive an 18 wheeler from California to Florida, one delivery, one way, cross country.

7. Take a B&C deer @ 190 or more.

8. One month vacation to Europe with my wife (Italy, Ireland, Germany, Sweden).

9. Restore a 1967 Camaro - slate blue with plenty of chrome and black leather.

10. Financially survive two college tuitions at Texas A&M as well as two weddings - all that and retire before 70 - LOL!.

11. Goverment paid hunting trip for Osama Bin Laden. Probably won't get a shoulder mount of this one.

May have some additions as the lists roll out from others.

Don't know if I can fill ten, but here's some off the top of my head:

1. Live long enough to see my grandkids get married (I'm 32 now w/ no grandkids).
2. Earn enough money so my wife doesn't have to work.
3. Raise my children as my Dad raised me.
4. Work less and less and get paid more and more.
5. Catch a 30"+ trout, and win the STAR tournament.
6. Maybe try my luck in the World Series of Poker.

But most of all-- Just live life happy, and filled with love, with my wife and kids.

General Coolbro,

I am on my fifth or sixth day from my self-imposed cessation of smoking cigarettes....Now I may live long enough to find my own top 10 goals in life -- now that I have a renewed one, with many added years to my temporal, fleshy presence here on earth.

Great post, by the way.

I just have a few, 10 is to much.

I use to want children but could not make it. So I devote a lot of my time to youth hunts making sure that other children that never get the chance can experience the outdoors like we get to. Now moving to fishing LOL.

The other Item is everything I set out to do I do it full force.

last get 100 boats in the youth triggerfish tournament with 300 kids. :)

Run off and join the circus then pan handle across the country and wash windows at the most crowded intersection in every city I visit. Return to Texas and fish less than I do now.

B4B, I admire you!

I have only one goal and that is to see my sons pass on to their children the basics of life: religion, family, caring for those that can't help themselves and voting! Oh yeah, Lotto!!!!!
