Check One More Box....

It seems from blog reading, many of us actually have a bucket list!  Recently, I checked one more box on mine.  The list included three people I really wanted to see ....only Paul McCartney remains...still hoping that will happen!

I was in journalism school at the University of Texas from 1971-74...the time of the Watergate investigation.

We studied the reporting inside and out...so I have desired to see Bob Woodward and Carl Bernstein speak most of my life...(Robert Redford and Dustin Hoffman would be nice as well!)  They delivered new information from the Nixon tapes I was not familiar with, so for me it was an historical, enjoyable evening.  I got there really early to get a good seat and did a little people watching as well.
You know me...I have to scope out what the ladies are wearing!  
Has anyone else checked a box on their list recently??  Something special about this era of life is the time exists to do special things!

Have a wonderful autumn weekend!!


  1. That must have been such an interesting talk!! I'm glad you had the opportunity to go.

  2. I heard they actually didn't like each other too much anymore. I am so glad you saw them! Fascinating, eh?

    Was Hal Holbrook there standing in for Deep Throat?

    Fun post, Pam.

  3. What a great opportunity! I'd love to hear them talk. McCartney is def. on my list too : >

  4. I did! I always wanted to write a book and I just published my memoir, Dangled Carat!

  5. I love that you got to do this! That is so great. Now you have me thinking about my bucket list. I never thought I'd have a chance to meet Jean Paul Gaultier two weeks ago but that was so unexpected and wonderful! I would LOVE to meet Valentino Garavani, maybe I should find out where he lives in Manhattan and park myself outside his building, just so I can shout 'Mr. Valentino' I love your work!' XO, Jill

  6. Fascinating subjects and speakers.

  7. Another great post!!

    I recently had some of my greeting cards published in a magazine. What a thrill -- and definitely something I can cross off my list.
